When your fashion godfather is Karl Lagerfeld, the perks are endless. And nobody knows this better than Diane Kruger.

The 36-year-old model-turned-actress, who regularly takes to the red carpet in Lagerfeld's designs, is the new face of Chanel skincare. Can life get any sweeter?

Kruger's first stint fronting Chanel was back in 1996 for its Allure fragrance, then she posed for the Paris-Biarritz handbag campaign shot by the Kaiser himself in 2007. And we are counting down the days until we see the the blonde beauty in the French fashion house's new skincare ads.

With her flawless complexion, we think Kruger is serving Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen some friendly competition at Chanel. What do you think?

Diane has always had great skin, but her style has certainly came a long way:

  • Diane Kruger Looks Red Hot and Shows Off Her Midriff

    Diane Kruger kicked off the promo tour with a book signing in LA for her new movie, "The Host," where she stars alongside Max Irons and Jake Abel. We love seeing Diane on the red carpet, and this movie means we'll be seeing a whole lot of red carpet style from the German actress. Showing off her svelte frame, Diane chose a look consisting of a Carven crop top and a Vanessa Bruno red leather skirt. This is just the first of the style setter's promotional looks.
