On a recent episode of Gossip Girl, the sympathetic Dan Humphrey may have pulled off Blair’s headband and said, “no headbands in college” to help the Upper East Sider fit in among the NYU crowd, but as we know, Blair is always ahead of the trends. On the Fall 2009 runways, headbands were adorned with jewels, stones, studs, feathers and bows. They were seen at Zac Posen, Anna Sui and Dolce & Gabbana and Eva Mendes recently wore a bejeweled headband on the red carpet at the Venice International Film Festival.

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.
