How does this not surprise me?
Diane Kruger is promoting her movie The Infiltrator, and she’s been giving interviews for a few months. She just did a piece with Yahoo Style, and you can read the piece here. She talks about the movie, sure, but the most interesting parts were about her red carpet habits, beauty, and style. Like…she hates thrift stores! She does her own makeup for red carpets! She styles herself, GDMN it!
Her ‘90s style: “I love fashion. I think it’s a really fun way to be a woman. I like to change it up. I like to try different things. These days, I guess you could say I’m a kid of the ’90s. That’s when I was a teenager. I’m loving the whole slip dress-sneaker phase. I feel like that’s how I went to school forever. I am unafraid of whatever is coming next. I’m not scared by it. I like to have fun with it.”
She doesn’t have a stylist: “I still style myself. For the red carpet, I often borrow dresses from designers though because that’s easier in a way. You give it back and you don’t have to go shopping for it. To be truthful, in my daily life, I don’t really shop that much. I love online shopping. Every once in a while I’ll go to Barneys and just have an indulgence day. But I love the convenience of ordering from home, I have to say. I think people need stylists when they don’t have time or they don’t find it fun to do it themselves. At this point, I think if I had to do a big tour, I would use a stylist to pull clothes, but I just don’t think I need a stylist.”
Whether she ever shops at thrift stores: “No. I know that is going to disappoint people, but I cannot shop in thrift stores. I hate the smell of them, and I can’t ever get over it. I love used jeans, but they have to be in a regular store, or I order them online. I have ordered vintage jean jackets from online. But there is too much stuff in thrift stores. It takes me too long to go through stuff.”
Whether she does her own makeup: “It depends. For photo shoots, I always have a makeup person. But often for red carpets, I do it myself.
I’m surprised that she hates vintage/thrift stores, but also, not really. She doesn’t need to do that kind of shopping, so if she can’t stand the smell, why should she? It makes her sound prissy, until you read the part where she actually styles herself…
