The Inspiration: Diane Kruger in National Treasure 2

Historian-chic's main appeal is incredibly stylish jackets.

You wouldn't think that a film such as National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets (2007) would have any stylish moments, but somehow Abigail Chase (a.k.a. Diane Kruger) manages to run around the U.S., hunting for an ancient lost treasure , whilst looking incredibly chic.

Historian-chic, which is a term I just thought of, seems to be an extension of librarian-chic; it's smart and sophisticated, but because treasure-hunting historians such as Abigail are required to travel and explore, it has a bit more of an adventurous edge to it.

And what is with the amazing jackets and coats? I've seen this film more than a couple of times, and every time I watch it, I am constantly distracted (in a good way). I want her coats.

Costume designer Judianna Makovsky did a very good job on this occasion, but that isn't very surprising. She has also done the costumes for The Devil's Advocate (1997), Pleasantville (1998) and The Hunger Games (2012).

This woman must have a thing for amazing jackets, because she certainly gave Katniss a good one.

I may need to search for an exact replica of the green leather one (above) for winter.
