Kirsten Dunst for Lucky Magazine

Posted on November 30, 2011

There’s Oscar fever in the air and you can tell which actresses are vying for nominations by how often they’re appearing on red carpets and magazine covers at the moment. Kirsten’s getting banner reviews for Melancholia, so she’s doing double duty; poledancing for the movie and for her nomination at the same time. It’s an age-old Hollywood dance, y’all. Remember how much we were all looking at Natalie Portman this time last year?

Kirsten Dunst for Lucky MagazineMiu Miu

Kirsten Dunst featured in the January 2012 issue of Lucky magazine photographed by James White and styled by Heathermary Jackson.

 

But these are some super-cute pics, we must admit. She seems like she’d be so much fun to style. We don’t know why; it’s just that we rarely ever see her styled badly for her many magazine editorials. It’s not that she’s as talented as a model, just that her slightly quirky all-American looks translate well to styles ranging from classically chic to manic pixie dream girl.

Plus she seems fun. We once heard a story that she contacted a blogger who’d written some funny, but slightly bitchy things about her just to tell them how funny she found it.

On a common misconception about her: “Just don’t write the ‘she’s back!’ thing. I wasn’t ever away! Sorry I wasn’t in Spider-Man 4 a year after I was in Spider-Man 3!”

On how changing her hair color attracts a different type of guy: “I attract a different kind of boy when my hair’s red. I get more quality men – like a more thoughtful, nerdy dude.”

On the one thing she can’t resist when it comes to fashion:“It’s Rebecca Taylor: I’m a sucker for a cute dress and I knew I’d be wearing it. I’m the kind of person who buys a new thing, wears it so much and then is totally sick of it. I’ve already worn it two days in a row.”

On having big breasts: “It’s harder to dress if you have boobs. I usually cover them. When you have a beanpole body everything looks cute. Like Alexa Chung. I like her style but she’s really tall and skinny so everything looks good on her.”

On why she hates red carpet photos: “I hate red-carpet photographs! It’s such flat lighting! They take away my cheekbones—I just become a moonface. I hate those photos so much. I always look terrible. And they don’t know angles on faces. There is no artistry to it. I hate them.”

      I love those clothes!  She looks great in each outfit, and makes me want to wear them, too!

      I love KiKi. She’d be a great partner in Jagermeister.

      Wow! Normally I can’t stand her, but she looks great in these photos!

      Also…she has big breasts?

      • Anonymous

        That’s what I thought!  I know a thing or two about big breasts, having packed a pair of those suckers around since I was 10 years old, and Kirstin honey, you don’t have big breasts.  Just sayin’.

          Same here. Now, Christina Hendricks–those are some tiggo bitties.

          You guys obviously haven’t seen (her nude scenes in) Melancholia yet. :-)

          • angela rose

            Word.  Not only are they big, they are quite spectacular.  I don’t think my husband has gotten over them yet.

        • http://twitter.com/leslielies Leslie S

          if you watch her in ‘crazy/beautiful’ (which I don’t actually recommend) she is sporting some pretty big knockers for her slight frame. she is like never wearing a bra in that movie. 

      • Sobaika Mirza

        Well, my breasts could probably beat her up. But I see what she means – for her small frame and size, and by Hollywood standards, she has a chest. You can see it mainly in the very last picture.

        Still, I’d trade mine for hers any day. They looked great at 17 and it’s been downhill ever since.

          This.

        Compared to the rest of her body? Sure. Also, as she said, she always downplays them, so I suspect they’re bigger than we realize.

        (Admittedly, I’m a terrible judge of these things, as EVERYONE is bigger than me.)

      • http://twitter.com/taijuuuh Taija HU!

        Her breasts are big by hollywood standards. But they’re not big by any means – I am outraged by the notion.

    • Sobaika Mirza

      She used to be on my Irrational Celebrity Hate List. She always looked so sloppy. But maybe because she’s grown or because she’s been forthcoming in interviews about some of her struggles – and Melancholia looks excellent – but she’s really growing one me. These photos are really simple but she brings a lot of charm to them.

      • angela rose

        She is really, really good in Melancholia.  I was surprised to see she had the chops and made me wonder why she’s been stuck doing crap like Spiderman all this time.

      • Sara__B

         She used to get on my last nerve, too. Lately she’s looked chic and elegant and charming in every photo I’ve seen. She’s either cleaning up well for Oscar season, or she’s found a grown-up sense of style that suits her. If she keeps this up, she’ll become one of my red carpet favorites. Go figure.

      • http://profiles.google.com/ameliaheartsu Amelia Logan

        I thought she looked sloppy too, but I look like that a lot now so I can’t hate.

    • MilaXX

      She looks great in these and so far her sound bytes don’t suck.

    • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

      Hah, she’s adorable, even if the pictures are boring (and I love that leather skirt). And the fact that I recognize that story makes me believe it was the Fug Girls, no?

      • Anonymous

        LOL, I remember them calling her “Dr. Sunkentits” or something…rearranging the letters of her name…because she used to go around without a bra quite frequently…

      That look on the cover…I would wear that in a heartbeat.  I would also wear the tweed.  She looks good in all the pics.  I like her hair.  This is fun.  And I like that she isn’t styled in a wedding dress to remind you what movie she’s in.

      I like it all but the cover shot.  The top reminds me of those novelty T-shirts printed to look like a tuxedo.

      I loved what she said about the red carpet photos, so funny how those are things we have no idea about (well, at least me since i’m not a photographer).  I always liked her (since Interview with the vampire), but i loved her more after seeing Marie Antoinette, she did an awesome job in that movie. 

    • http://www.wordydoodles.com WordyDoodles

      She had a good point about red carpet photos. I never thought about them much before, but she’s right that there’s no artistry in them. Just point and shoot and fingers crossed, basically. Too bad, considering all the work that goes into creating their looks.

      I mostly love all these looks, including the last shot. But it’s a textbook example why TLo’s issue with nude pumps makes sense!

        I do see a slight resemblance. Perhaps Gennifer should consider longer blonde hair? She’s had such trouble finding a flattering hair style for being so cute otherwise.

        • Anonymous

          Briefly on Big Love she was rocking long blonde hair. It was kind of odd, but probably because I’m not used to seeing her like that.

      Kirsten Dunst annoys me irrationally.  Not on my celeb hate list but she’s pretty close, so that interview made me roll my eyes several times.  Still though….loved the photos….she looked fab in the green dress and on the cover.

      she’s right about the hair & the clothes are really nice, i especially love the marni dress. heavens, i love it so much i’d buy it if i could. but even if i could, see, it wouldnt go near fitting my boobs. she needs to see, i dunno, a little more porn, a few more women so she’ll have some idea what thats really like. what an odd statement for her to make.

        Right?! The median bra size in America as of 2010 is a 36DD. She does not have big boobs, her boobs are two cup sizes below average. Hollywood is so weird with it’s sizing. Like when celebrities talk about being heavy, and they’re a size 6. An average size in America is a 14. Khloe Kardashian is a freaking size 6; the press is so weird about this stuff.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EDI2DLE7DE3YPW2ONIHBWOVHMA ecallaw

          I’m sorry, I’m not buying that Khloe Kardashian is a size 6.  I love her, and she’s the only Kardashian I can really stomach because she’s down to earth and genuinely funny, but she is no size 6.  She looks great, but she is definitely a 10–MAYBE an 8.  And there is no way that Kirstie Allie is 4 after Dancing With the Stars.  Again, she is looking great, but I have no idea what tags these ladies are looking at when they get their sizes.

          • Anonymous

            We’ve never seen them standing next to regular sized people. For example a lot of people comment that Jennifer Aniston looks healthy, but I have a friend that met her in person and said she looked like she might shatter; she is MUCH skinnier than she looks in pictures. A size 2 or 4 looks very different in pictures and surrounded by people that size than it looks standing next to average sized people.

      She looks great in all the clothes, but I am curious about one thing — what was the point of having her wear expensive necklaces over those busy clothes when they’re barely even visible?  I mean, who could have looked at that first photo and said, “Oh, what a cute rabbit necklace!” without being told she’s even got one on, let alone what animal it is?

      I swear, lately it seems like 90% of the time when clothes need a necklace, the woman doesn’t have one on, whereas she does 90% of the time when she’s wearing something that will make it invisible!

      I love reading everyone’s reactions to her comments about her breasts. As a small chested lady, I look at these pictures and think her boobs look big. It’s all relative!

      I love her by the way. She looks adorable.

      That Marni dress really suits her.

    • Toni Busch

      I agree with the people who point out that she is discussing having a large chest FOR HER FRAME and FOR HOLLYWOOD.  When samples are created for runway models with A cups, I can see where having even a full B or C could make fitting into them properly more tricky.  Plus, C cups on a petite size 2 are going to look proportionally larger than the same size C on, say, a 12.

      I’ve been a B-cup my whole life, and pregnancy has made them a C-cup, and it feels like they’re ENORMOUS.  Please keep in mind that she’s only referring to her personal experiences.

      I can’t look at her the same way after seeing Melancholia… she peed on the 19th hole of a golf course! I didn’t think she or the movie was that great actually.

      Cute pictures.  

      As a red-head myself it amuses me that she says she gets more ‘thoughtful’ guys as a redhead.  Yet… she is now very blonde.  I guess she wasn’t into quality ‘nerdy’ types all that much.  lol   I’ll take them!!  :)

      From a totally biased Kirsten fan:  LOVE these shots of her, she looks great.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the green Lanvin tweed.  She should keep that outfit, especially when she gos back to redhead.

      Kirsten Dunst’s looks are  “all-American”? If Estonia grew cheerleaders they’d probably look like her.
