Diane Kruger’s Award Winning Beauty

Diane Kruger wins our Palme D’Or for looking the most fabulous throughout the 12 day Cannes Film Festival.

The model-turned-actress, who claims to have no stylist and takes only 45 minutes to get red carpet ready, made jury duty look effortless with her glamorous, yet simple look: a smoky eye, highlighted cheek bones and a natural lip.

How does she do it?

Here is Diane’s beauty routine: ‘I always wash my face with Surgras soap. Then I’ll apply Kiehl’s Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion and follow up with Roséliane d’ Uriage cream—it’s the only cream I can use on my sensitive skin.’

‘I don’t like to wear too much makeup so I’ll often just do it myself. I learned all the tricks during my modeling years—like never use foundation all over, just use something to cover imperfections. I prefer to use cover sticks, like Secret Camouflage by Laura Mercier.’

‘I have fair skin and blonde hair so I have to keep in mind that some looks can make me seem washed out.I usually go all out on lashes and eyebrows and I love red shades so I tend to go all out on lipsticks. I’m a huge fan of the smoky eye but I also like a fresh and natural look, so it just depends on my mood.’

‘The best beauty advice I was ever given came from my mom: Less is more. I’ve always preferred the natural look.’

Charlize Theron Loves Her…Balenciaga ‘Papier’ Bag

Charlize Theron has a new favourite bag; the Balenciaga ‘Papier’ Bag.

As a celeb she of course has this bag in two colours; black and navy.

On Monday she departed LAX carrying the black version wearing a light grey blazer with black jeans and silver sequin flats.

The following day she was spotted on the East Coast carrying the navy blue version dressed in a tailored slate grey blazer, a black top, teal coloured jeans and Jimmy Choo ‘Imogen’ caged sandals.

Earlier today Charlize was papped leaving Claridges hotel in London carrying the black version.

On this occasion she wore blue-and-white striped Stella McCartney shirt paired with The Row ‘Moto’ stretch-leather leggings-style pants and Christian Louboutin ‘Decoupata’ ankle boots.

I love the last two looks. It looks like she’s giving Miranda Kerr a run for her money in the street style stakes.

You can buy the Balenciaga Shopper Papier bag from farfetch.com.

Jessica Brown-Findlay In Peter Pilotto – ‘Prometheus’ London Premiere

Jessica Brown-Findlay was one of the many stars to attend the ‘Prometheus’ world premiere in London yesterday.

The British actress best known for her role as Lady Sybil Crawley in ‘Downton Abbey’ wore a Peter Pilotto Spring 2012 dress.

Her halter dress has a green, blue and gold top with a nude skirt embellished with gold embroidery.

Opting for carefree naturally curly tresses, Jessica styled her look with nude accessories and a gold bracelet.

A pretty petal-pink lip colour provided the finishing touch.

This look would’ve been perfect for me had Jessica worn her hair up.
