Diane Kruger Is the New Face Of Martell


Diane Kruger is making moves beyond the best-dressed list and the beauty counter to spend some time at the bar.

The Bridge actress was just named Martell Cognac’s Tricentenaire Celebration Ambassador to toast to the brand’s 300-year anniversary. The self-confessed Francophile stepped in front of Mary McCartney’s camera at the iconic Palace of Versailles in Paris to launch the search for Martell’s next 300.

Kruger will identify 300 “ones to watch” around the world whose combined cultural contribution across gastronomy, art, fashion, mixology, and entertainment that epitomize French Art de Vivre in the 21st century for one of the oldest of the great cognac houses. “Although I still consider Paris my home, I spend a lot of time on the road and am pleased to see how the French Art de Vivre lifestyle is truly permeating contemporary society on an international scale,” Kruger said in a statement.

The honorees will be announced in June in a series of celebrations worldwide as well as a spectacular at the Palace of Versailles on May 20. Plus, the brand will release four new limited edition blends that rested in barrels made from a 300-year old oak tree in homage to the brand’s founder.

We’ll raise a glass to that. Cheers!
