Diane Kruger’s Summer Style

28 May

In just over a month Diane Kruger will be on screens in FX’s The Bridge, an adaptation of the Scandinavian show Broen. This new version is swapping out the Swedish/Danish setting and using the border between Mexico and the U.S. as its location. As a fan of the original series I have high hopes for this venture, even if the AMC version of The Killing is enough to make me cautious in my optimism. Kruger is playing Sonya Cross, a brilliant investigator who lacks empathy, is blunt to the point of being rude and falls somewhere on the autism spectrum. The man that Cross will have to work with to solve the series of connected crimes that occur on U.S. and Mexican soil is Marco Ruiz (played by Oscar nominee Demián Bichir) and he faces an extra challenge as his department is corrupt. I look forward to how they will use the political backdrop and what aspects from Broen will remain and evolve to match the setting.

Diane Kruger tends to stand out on the red carpet and I’m looking forward to all of the press events that will occur before The Bridge’s July 10 premiere date. Yesterday Kruger attended Joel Silver’s Memorial Day party in L.A. and demonstrated that it isn’t just high fashion that she excels at. Wearing a polka dot blouse (!), grey skater skirt and monochrome brogues Kruger looks like the epitome of summer chic. Plus bonus Joshua Jackson, also rocking a perfect casual look for the sunshine. I’m not the only one wants to emulate Kruger’s style as Mad Men’s January Jones recently told The Edit that Kruger “always looks fantastic so I watch what she wears. We like to go to shows or look online and then fight each other for the best [pieces].”

The Bridge will premiere Wednesday, July 10 on FX. To watch a preview check out the video below and I kind of hope they keep the leather trousers that Kruger’s counterpart wore in Broen.
