DIANE KRUGER, WHO FRONTS CHANEL’S RESYNCHRONIZING SKINCARE CAMPAIGN, SHARES HER THOUGHTS ON WHAT MAKES HER BEAUTIFUL.
DOES BEAUTY MEAN TO YOU? “When I was a little girl, my beauty ideal reflected the traditional norms. Slimness, perfection and other inaccessible objectives were characteristic of this image. But with experience and the travelling that I was able to do, I became more open-minded. I learned that there is no such thing as perfection. And my career as an actress taught me that flaws make us more interesting.” DO YOU FEEL MORE BEAUTIFUL NOW? “I’m kinder to myself. You have to invent your beauty the way you do your life but without projecting yourself into an ideal. I realise that I have to live fully in the moment and open myself to others or life would pass me by. If I’m happier now, then I’m more beautiful than I was before.” DO YOU ALWAYS HAVE A TEAM TO MAKE YOU LOOK GORGEOUS AT RED-CARPET EVENTS? “My experience as a model taught me the right tips to enhance my features, so I prefer to do my own makeup. Today, I want above all to look like myself. Feeling beautiful is a private emotion.” YOU ARE AN AMBASSADRESS FOR CHANEL FASHION. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL BOND WITH THE BRAND? “My first shoot as a model was for Karl Lagerfeld! I immediately fell under the charm of his kindness and his humour. Our German roots brought us closer. This happy coincidence gave us an inseparable connection. We’ve even become neighbours recently. Chanel was one of the first fashion brands to support me as an actress.” YOU ARE THE NEW FACE FOR CHANEL’S SKINCARE LINE. WHAT MAKES THIS A GOOD FIT? “The skincare products are focused on sensorial pleasure without emphasising the scientific feats. I convey the message that Chanel makes life more beautiful while freeing oneself from conventions. This message is in sync with the direction of my own life. I chose to be an actress, to use my flaws, and make them a strength on screen. I no longer try to hide behind an appearance; I want to show who I really am. Chanel cosmetics enhance your own beauty. This suits me perfectly!”
