Diane Kruger has a lot of things we wouldn’t mind borrowing for a day—legs for miles, Joshua Jackson, and a Chanel beauty contract, to name just a few—but the only one that actually manages to render us speechless is her glossy, perfectly highlighted flaxen hair. We love it when she wears it down, insouciant and tousled in that je ne sais quoi way … but really, it’s Diane’s commitment to updos that gets us every time.
Whether it’s a pulled-back ballerina bun, a loose, messy chignon, or a more casual take on classic liberty rolls, the German actress somehow—we suspect by magic—never looks fussed-over or overdone. As the red carpet has proven to us time and time again, anyone can pull off loose waves, but Diane’s ability to rock any updo with aplomb? Now that’s something to envy. As for the adorable former “Dawson’s Creek” star of a beau? Well, we’re still working on that.
