Lucky's June Issue

ON OUR COVER Diane Kruger was discovered by designer Karl Lagerfeld more than a decade ago, and since then the model turned actress has honed a hyper-elegant style. "I love black-and-white clothes—they're so classic," she said of the Oscar de la Renta top and Chanel necklace she wore for Lucky's NYC shoot. The 32-year-old is starring with Brad Pitt in one of the summer's biggest movies, Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, due out in August—but she doesn't take dressing up too seriously. "Fashion shouldn't be stressful," she said. "I start with one item of clothing or an accessory that's going to make me happy—recently that's been anything retro—and then the rest of my outfit works itself out." Turn to page 84 for the items that are making Kruger look so great right now.
