Diane Kruger, Inglorious Basterds

Quentin Tarantino knows how to keep us on our toes. With each new film the director expands his kinetic vision into something boldly different yet quintessentially Quentin. Every project makes a daring visual statement whether it’s a pastiche play on kung fu genre constructs (Kill Bill), a taut tale of the perfect crime gone wrong (Reservoir Dogs) or just a little story about a few days in L.A. (Pulp Fiction) the art direction, costuming and set design within his films is always pitch perfect.

Which makes us more than a little eager to see what he’ll do with his next film ‘Inglourious Basterds,’ a madcap spaghetti western-esque World War II story about a band of Jewish soldiers out to bring down the Nazi’s by any means necessary. It’s one of those just crazy enough to work concepts that gets cineastes buzzing due to it’s sheer inventiveness.

Since the film wont debut until August fans have to sate themselves with the addictive teaser trailer and little snippets here and there. The latest Vanity Fair provides a tantalizing peak via an excerpt from the script and lovely portraits from Brigitte Lacombe. Just a short little peak but thrilling nonetheless. Can’t wait to see how Diana Kruger’s grand dame, Bridget von Hammersmark looks onscreen in those Anna Sheppard costumes. As we know, every Tarantino flick ignites a mini fashion moment. From the Bride’s yellow Jumpsuit, to Mia Wallace’s sharp bob, fashion takes it’s cues from Tarantino’s leading ladies. The ultra glam structured suits look decadently Dietrich in the all too brief previews.
