The star dishes on her upcoming juicy role (that may involve some smooching practice)
Diane Kruger is always a treat to see at fashion week — both because she always looks so good and because she makes us laugh. And she combined the two with her candid answer to our question about whether her warm coat at the Fiji Water-sponsored Jason Wu show (during a frigid Fashion Week Friday) was more out of necessity than out of style. “Oh, my God, no s–t,” she laughed, before apologizing for her language.
Not that she needs to — she’s a New Yorker now, at least for another few months. “We live in the East Village,” she said. “I [generally] don’t live here, I live in L.A. really. I’m a New Yorker now, but I’m going to do a movie with Ellen Page starting in March.”
That film, in which she plays Page’s lover, will mark two firsts for her: Her first time working with the actress, and her first time kissing a woman, full stop. “We play lovers, so we will get to know each other very well,” she says, adding, “I’ve never kissed a woman.” Does she plan to practice before filming starts up? “My boyfriend Josh [Jackson] would certainly like that,” she said, laughing.

Kruger was joined at the show by first-time Wu attendee Jennifer Hudson, who was wowed by the collection. “I loved the show,” she told People afterward. “I loved everything, and I’m glad I got introduced to something new. And I saw some nice hairstyles, too. And the music was amazing!”
The day before, Hudson had landed a coveted invite to the coveted Yeezy Season 3 show, but missed most of the excitement as she left early: “I had to get to The Color Purple album release party!”
Wu, who was also supported in the front row by Jaime King (“He’s one of my best friends, and I love him so much,” she said), spoke to People after the show about his many beautifully-dressed muses. “I made the show immaculate, because I wanted these immaculately dressed women filling the room,” he said. “Diane Kruger is always such a muse to me, a good friend. It’s always clear there is a lot of her in all my collections.”
And having Hudson in the front row? “It’s about having different types of the Jason woman out in full support,” he said. “And that was really special for me today.”
