Inglourious Basterds gal Diane Kruger covers the October 2011 issue of InStyle UK. I was actually surprised that this shoot was for October. You see a lot more of the sequin styles and chiffon dresses in December/January issues in preparation for the holidays (especially New Year's.) I'm guessing its more of an InStyle magazine thing. The September 2011 cover girl Beyonce, dons a sequined star covered gold mini-dress in the American version as well.
I definitely believe Kruger should have continued her modeling career alongside her acting career. She is extremely photogenic and a classic beauty.
Here is the image of Beyonce's cover for comparison.
