Kirsten “Yay! She’s emerged from her ’90s teen idol bunker!” Dunst joined the long list of celebrities sporting cutoffs this summer, and we’re loving the simple, chic outfit she created around her frayed denim short shorts for a recent trip to the convenience store. Want to recreate her look for yourself? Get all the shopping details, after the jump! Keep reading »
Expect to see spots aplenty in the very near future — Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama will be the subject of several pop-up shops around the globe this summer, but the avant-garde visionary won’t just be selling prints. Kusama has teamed up with none other than Louis Vuitton to create a capsule collection of clothing and accessories that are sure to captivate the fashion flock… if they haven’t already, that is.
Gisele Bundchen may have been the first to wear it on the cover of this month’s Vogue Brazil, but it was Kirsten Dunst who debuted a dress from the line last night at the opening of the new Vuitton boutique in Paris. I like the silhouette of the maxi, and the polka dots, but the overall effect is a little more hoedown-ready than anticipated. Then again, I wasn’t exactly a fan of Gisele’s look either, so perhaps this speckled collection just isn’t for me. Do you love Kirsten’s quirky gown, or do you think it’s best left to those also wearing cowboy boots?
Are you excited for the new film adaptation of “On The Road”? I feel pretty impartial about it, but it’s probably because I’m just not that into Kerouac. I would assume that those who are probably have very strong feelings about it one way or another. I am looking forward to seeing how the movie turns out given the ambitious material. I’m also curious to see Kristen Stewart and Kirsten Dunst in their roles — from the looks of the Cannes photocall for the film, the two have gotten pretty chummy. I usually love Kirsten’s style, but I just hated the drab Rodarte dress she wore to the Met Ball. Keep reading »
Kirsten Dunst has, for the most part, consistently fantastic style. Her casual looks have always been impressive, in my opinion even more so than her red carpet appearances. She also seems really down-to-earth, which is probably part of the reason why she looks so enviably cool at her most dressed-down moments. Her new film, The Bling Ring is bound to be insanely good — it’s directed by Kirsten’s good friend Sofia Coppola (yet another of my favorite fashionistas), who also directed her in The Virgin Suicides. Kirsten arrived on set yesterday in this totally effortless outfit, and being a longtime lover of a good all-black look with a touch of color, it’s totally “up my alley,” as my mother would say. Naturally, I had to recreate it for my own purposes — I’ll show you how to do the same, after the jump. [via Just Jared] Keep reading »
Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan and Rebel Wilson star in the upcoming dark (very dark!) comedy “Bachelorette,” and this week the three made the rounds at the Sundance Film Festival promoting the film. We are so excited to see this movie — especially since catching Rebel Wilson’s hilarious turn as one half of a creepy brother/sister roommate duo in “Bridesmaids.” In “Bachelorette,” Wilson plays a woman getting married whose three bridesmaids — played by Dunst, Caplan and Isla Fisher — plot against her. Thankfully, it seems that Wilson and her co-stars get along much better off screen. We love the casual looks they’re sporting at Sundance, and thought we’d try stealing their looks. Check out what we found after the jump.

“The last time I cut my hair short, my boyfriend at the time was like, ‘You look so much better with short hair.’ So I cut it off. I know, I know, so stupid! My girlfriend thinks he just didn’t want any guys to look at me. … I attract a difference kind of boy when my hair’s red. I get more quality men—like a more thoughtful, nerdy dude.”
– Kirsten Dunst, who I absolutely loved in the Lars Von Trier film “Melancholia,” tells the January issue of Lucky how boys have influenced and reacted to her changing hair over the years. Hmm, I’ve had my hair a variety of colors but haven’t personally noticed a difference in the guys I’ve attracted. Though I do think I’ve had more luck attracting them period since my hair has been a more natural brown. My blonde period wasn’t very eventual, romance wise. What about you? Have you noticed a difference in the types of guys you attract depending on your hair color or cut? (And click on to see all the great photos of Kirsten in Lucky!) [Lucky Mag]
“People are embarrassed to talk about [depression]. I would never put anyone down [who] was in that kind of space … I think most human beings go through some sort of depression in their life … And if they don’t, I think that’s weird.”
– Kirsten Dunst opens up about her depressive episode in Flare Magazine. And I have to agree with her. Who hasn’t been depressed at some point? I want to meet those people. I think there are different degrees to which people suffer. For some, it’s a mild sadness in stressful times, for others it is lifelong and debilitating. I remember when I sought professional treatment for depression, my therapist told me, “A person who has never been depressed is a person in denial. Your depression is a sign that you are processing some of the sadness you feel.” Thinking about it that way made it feel like less of a stigma. [People]
Last night, the Cannes Film Festival concluded with the Robert DeNiro-helmed jury handing out the awards for the best movies and acting on display at the festival. And I am sensing a theme: apparently, the jury was all about films that mixed everyday stories with, well, the fate of the universe. The coveted Palme d’Or award—Cannes’ version of Best Picture Oscar—went to “Tree of Life,” the movie which follows a suburban Texas family in the 1950s through two generations (Brad Pitt is the dad, Sean Penn is his son) connecting them to the creation of the world and cosmos. Meanwhile, most people thought Tilda Swinton had the Best Actress award in the bag for “We Need To Talk About Kevin.” But she was upset by Kirsten Dunst, who stars in “Melancholia,” the story of a bride who begins to feel more and more disillusioned while, lightyears away, a planet threatens to collide with Earth. Oddly, both movies prominently feature eclipses in their trailers. Keep reading »
Kirsten Dunst‘s new ad for Bulgari’s Mon Jasmir Noir perfume looks kinda like an outtake from “Marie Antoinette.” Only nuder and with a lion. [Sassy Bella] Keep reading »
“I think most people in their twenties go through some sort of depression. If you’re successful at a young age, no matter the profession, there has to come a time when you reevaluate everything, what it means to you. Is this what I want to do for the rest of my life?”
—Kirsten Dunst talks to New York about why we haven’t seen her in a while. Kirsten says she did a stint in rehab to treat her depression, which confuses me. Don’t you go to a therapist or a psych ward for depression? No judgment on getting help for it—I’ve been clinically depressed before, so I understand. Just seems odd to me. Either way, I’m glad Kirsten is back. [NYMag.com]
