Reinvent Yourself: Diane Kruger For Jaeger-LeCoultre

Diane Kruger Jaeger LeCoultre Reinvent Yourself: Diane Kruger For Jaeger LeCoultre %tagWho: Diane Kruger

Where: At the launch of her short film, Reinvent Yourself with Jaeger-LeCoultre in New York

Wearing: A black fitted Alessandra Rich crepe gown with dramatic fringe detailing to the side, teamed with a skinny white belt, white Christian Louboutin heels, a checked clutch, chunky bracelets and of course a dainty Jaeger-LeCoultre watch

Verdict: Only Diane could get away with wearing this fringed beauty during the day and what a beauty it is, I love how she has styled it with white accessories making it so on trend, as monochrome styles are everywhere.

What I love most about this look has to be how immaculate she looks – her body looks incredible in the fitted dress, her belt shows off her tiny waist, and her natural, barely there make-up and sleek hair is just the topping on the cake really. I know that I gush a lot about Diane, but come on this is why, she is stunning.

So why was Diane sporting a gorgeous fringed dress during the day in New York? I would like to answer that why not, but actually the actress was launching the new short film she stars in for Jaeger-LeCoultre called ‘Reinvent Yourself’.

The beautiful film, directed by Fabienne Berthaud and set to the Shirley Bassey ‘(Where Do I Begin) Love Story’ song, basically pays tribute to the her unique personality and successful career – following her from a young ballerina to a successful fashion model and now an actress.

Watch the film below – it really captures Diane’s beauty perfectly, and she even cries pretty!!!

Summer Fix: Swatch Dots and Checks Collection

Dotty swatch Summer Fix: Swatch Dots and Checks Collection %tag

Everyone knows that I love funky watches, I was sporting a plastic child’s watch until very recently before I got my just as childish pink retro Casio. Well it seems I am not the only one wanting a playful watch, as this new Dots and Checks collection from Swatch goes on sale this month.

The five new watches feature dots and checks in colours ranging from cotton candy pink to cherry red, and in my opinion all are perfect for the summer. Priced £32, these cute watches will jazz up any outfit.

Can you guess which one caught my eye?

Watch Loving: Kidrobot For Swatch Collection

I like quirky and childish it seems, with my Barbie’s, B@arbricks and numerous cuddly toys, but somehow it seems Kidrobot’s bunny-like vinyl toy has passed me by. Well it seems Swatch has come to my rescue by teaming up with Kidrobot for a new collection of eight watches, each accompanied by a collectible Dunny aka bunny toy, buy then individual or as a special Kidrobot limited and numbered edition of 300 sets for the whole collection.

Tilt: Love Song; Joe Ledbetter: Bengali

There is a bright yellow ski instructor from Spanish-born artist Frank Kozik; then there is my favourite pink Shout Out from Kansas-based MAD; there is even a multi-colour graffiti-style design from French artist Tilt, who designed his Swatch-Love Song inspired by the lyrics of a famous French 80s rock band called Telephone; and my second fav is Carina the 3-eyed space kitty designed by New York-based Tara McPherson.

Watch Loving: Kate Moross For Firetrap

I love pink, I love psychedelic prints and this Kate Moross for Firetrap is right up my street. Art director and graphic designer Kate has previously done collaborations with The Klaxons and Glastonbury, and this colourful, geometric style watch with Firetrap is amazing.

“As a collector of watches, I have always wanted the opportunity to design one of my own. When Firetrap approached me about the collaboration I was really excited especially because I could design one for men and women. Decorating and embellishing functional pieces is an area that I have always been interested in and explored within my work. My aim was to keep the designs simple and bold, and maybe even to sway girls and boys to swap watches depending on which styles they prefer.” Kate Moross

The bold limited edition watch collection has three styles *pink, black and white*, and if the other two are as good as this one, I am going to have trouble deciding which one I want. With only 500 being made in the entire collection, each nicely engraved with a numbered back plate, means a great collectable number. Best of all, these watches are only £100 – bargain and gorgeous – can’t ask for more than that.
