If you asked us to guess who comes out on top as Diane Kruger's ultimate beauty icon, Grace Kelly would come to mind—though we'd be completely wrong. "I think it would have to be a mix between Audrey Hepburn, and Courtney Love," the star admits to Violet Grey. Kruger is the cover girl for this month's issue of The Violet Files, and in her beyond-gorgeous spread, the star offers no shortage of beauty knowledge and life lessons. A woman after our own hearts, Kruger also reveals her preference for a statement brow. "I'm not really into contouring and foundation, but I have a pretty thick brow naturally and find that it gives me a lot of character," she adds. "I was always surrounded by grewat makeup artists when I was modeling, and learned a lot from them. I try not to overdo it and let the dress do all the talking."
