As promised from last week’s story on the brave beauties in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds, I’ve found some key pieces (even heels that resemble those that play a vital Cinderella moment in the film) to give you the old Hollywood style of Bridget von Hammersmark. The fearless German film actress (played by the stylish and sophisticated Diane Kruger) is armed with loads of tenacity, confidence and a whole lot of glamour.

As a fan of director Quentin Tarantino I saw Inglorious Basterds the weekend it opened. I was blown away by the characteristically cool Tarantino-isms that worked in perfect unison with the serious nature of the film and also by the strong female characters. Shosanna Dreyfus (played by Melanie Laurent), a Jewish woman who escapes capture from the Nazis to open her own cinema, and Bridget von Hammersmark (played by Diane Kruger), a German film actress and double agent, are both characters who find their own way to thrive under Nazi regime, kick some serious ass and look amazing while doing it!
Here is a look inspired by Shosanna. Next week look for pieces that will give you the old Hollywood glamour of Bridget.
