Beauty Crush: Diane Kruger At Venice Film Festival

Last week, Diane Kruger revealed she prefers to do her own makeup before her red carpet appearances and yes - there was a big part of us that wanted to make friends with Kruger even more.

On Monday night, the actress put her makeup skills to the test as she attended the Jaeger-LeCoultre gala dinner at Venice Film Festival with Joshua Jackson (still so cute!). The result? As always, Diane was glowing, with glossy lips, subtle smoky eyes and perfectly arched brows. Yep - this girl might as well be a makeup artist.


As for our favourite thing about her look? Diane's nails. Not only did the deep plum shade perfectly match her velvet Alberta Ferretti gown, her simple statement colour choice confirmed two things. 1. Plum is the colour for Autumn/Winter and 2. OTT nail art is over.


We wonder if Diane likes to do her own nails too? If so - she's a pro.

Berry shades aren't just made for nails. Experiment with a dark lip colour this autumn:
