Some fashion trends can seem a little scary at first, however when you know how to wear them often there's nothing to be afraid of! One example of this is the crop top. Fun, flirty and playful, we love the ladylike way both Diane Kruger and Laura Whitmore wear theirs. The good news is you don't have to step away from those Easter eggs or bare your midriff to work the trend, because when teamed with high waisted trousers, skirts or jeans you won't expose any skin at all. So, what are you waiting for! Shop a selection of summer essential, simple white crop tops below.
Karl Lagerfeld courted media attention today not just because of the positive reaction to his outstanding SS'13 Chanel Couture show in Paris yesterday but because it also featured two brides walking hand in hand together as a declaration of support for marriage equality. One of the brides in question was current UK Vogue cover girl Kati Nescher and the adorable page boy who accompanied the brides down the isle was actually Lagerfeld's Godson. The show itself had a generous celebrity turn out including Diane Kruger, Rita Ora and Laura Bailey. The collection itself was a crowd pleasing blend of embellished chiffon and lace dresses, floral painted print dresses along with more traditional Chanel style blazer suits. Check out the amazing collection in our gallery below.
Here at ShopStyle HQ it hasn't gone unnoticed just how amazing Diane Kruger's hair looks at all times and this is partly due to her supremo stylist Adam Reed, partner in the London based Percy & Reed salon. He dresses Diane's hair for most of her red carpet events and it's the finishing touches that take even the most simple styles from average to A-list. Maybe you have been thinking about cutting your hair for the New Year? Maybe you're just stuck in a styling rut. So, why not try some of Adam's Diane Kruger styling secrets as revealed to Elle magazine!
- To create retro style waves on Diane, Adam uses the Babyliss Curling Wand (£25), only curling the hair from the mid lengths. He then uses a natural bristle brush to gently brush out the waves for a softer finish effect.
- To prevent overloading the hair with too much hairspray, Adam sprays hairspray onto a hairbrush first rather than directly onto the hair itself.
- Kirby grips to keep hair neatly tucked behind the ear is a modern way to wear hair that is down.
- Apply shine serum to either side of your parting using a blusher brush to gently tame flyaways without leaving hair looking greasy.

The definition of the LBD is of course a little black dress, but more than that it's a fail safe dress kept at the back of your wardrobe that you know you can confidently pull out to wear to any occasion and feel fabulous. With just so many special nights coming up - it's no wonder the LBD is trending on ShopStyle! Take inspiration from Diane Kruger who loves to wear LBD's that are anything but dull.
