There's perhaps no film professional as intrinsically linked to the fashion industry as Sofia Coppola, whose intriguing new project, "The Beguiled," is already mounting unparalleled buzz. The film — a remake of the 1971 thriller of the same name featuring Clint Eastwood and Geraldine Page — centers around a Confederate girls' boarding school during the Civil War and a Union soldier who finds his way in and ruins everything. (This one stars Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman, as well as Elle Fanning and obligatory Coppola cast member Kirsten Dunst.)

The costumes, as far we can tell, are pristine, with sweeping ankle-length skits and pearl-adorned high-neck blouses. The movie itself also just looks absolutely insane, so you better believe we'll be in the front row once it hits theaters June 23.

You can watch the first full trailer above.
