There She Was: Silky Starlit Pressed Up To The Screen
Come to think of it, Kirsten Dunst has starred in almost strictly aesthetically-pleasing movies: Marie Antoinette, Elizabethtown, The Virgin Suicides, Crazy/Beautiful, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Many of these have become my favorites, not just for their prettiness, but also for Kirsten’s acting. It is not surprising that Sofia Coppola has often dubbed Kirsten as one of her muses in the past. As Lux Lisbon or Marie Antoinette, Kirsten always brings the perfect breezy irreverence to the screen.
Kirsten’s style can only be described as retro hipster grunge, if that’s even a possible combination. At times she looks like a stoned college student who threw on the nearest tee and jeans. This undone vibe has her sometimes looking like Eddie Vedder’s long-lost daughter. Yet, her choice in footwear and accessories shows she has one foot in the nineties and one the Gen X hipster world of today. Add in a dash of vintage and retro throwbacks (such as a shirtdress here or a full skirt there) and the combination is undeniably unique.
One of Dunst’s projects is her production company with her mother called “Wooden Spoon Productions.” The name symbolizes women and creativity and was inspired by her grandmother, who used wooden spoons to keep her in line when she was little.
Are you inspired by Kirsten’s style?
