At the age of 16, Diane Kruger represented Germany in the Elite Model Look competition and started a modeling career afterward. She booked ads from Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and more while also appearing on the cover of Vogue Paris, Marie Claire and Cosmopolitan.  Since giving up her modeling career to focus on acting, she has landed parts in movies like "Troy," "National Treasure" (pictured) and "Inglourious Basterds." Despite the growing movie career, she has also returned to modeling, becoming the global spokesmodel for L'Oreal in 2009 and the latest face for Calvin Klein's fragrance line Beauty in 2010.
