Her roles have ranged from the exquisite Helen in Troy to a mother wrongfully accused of murder in French film Pour Elle, and today Diane Kruger adds another part to her roster: international spokesperson for L'Oréal Paris.

The German-born actress joins the ranks of Penélope Cruz, Freida Pinto and Beyoncé Knowles in representing the cosmetics brand.

"A highly accomplished actress, Diane Kruger has won us over with her personality, natural grace and elegance. I am delighted to be welcoming her into the family of L'Oréal Paris Spokespeople today. Diane will represent the brand's major innovations in hair care, hair colour and make-up, in particular our latest foundation, Mat'Morphose," said Vianney Derville, International General Manager of L'Oréal Paris, in a statement.

"It's a great honour and a huge pleasure to become a Spokesperson for L'Oréal Paris. I admire the brand, not only for the quality and innovation of its products, but also because it represents diversity and excellence across the world, values which are very close to my heart. I am, of course, also delighted to be joining the other L'Oréal Paris Spokespeople, an extremely talented, widely-admired group of people," Kruger said in a statement.
