WERQ: Kirsten Dunst in Dolce & Gabbana

Posted on November 08, 2011

We are totally digging these Dolce & Gabbana vegetable florals. When they were first unveiled we were afraid they looked a little kitchen curtain-y, but every time a starlet wears one, we love it. Case in point:

    Is just a touch of lipstick too much to ask? And a bangle or two? I love the dress and the hair, but she looks a tad plain.

    It doesn’t fit well through the chest, but otherwise, she looks fab!

    I had the same sort of reaction – like, by definition I should hate a tomato-covered dress, but she makes it look so damn good. A total WERQ moment!

    • Jo Miller

      Is it a tomato-covered dress? I assumed with the white blossoms that these were apples on the dress.

      • Anonymous

        I thought the dress was covered in pumpkins?

        It’s like an art piece, everyone has their own interpretation of which vegetable the print is comprised of.

    Sorry, boys, this is AWFUL.

      Agreed. I think it looks weird and the proportions are off. It makes her torso look weirdly long, and the color’s doing nothing for her.

    • http://twitter.com/TheRedZavodnik Ginger

      Amen!  To me it’s a bad combination of Carmen Miranda and the 80′s. 

  • Leslie Streeter

    It’s like Maria Von Trapp needed to make RC clothes for her fashionista charges while working at a Pizza Hut! J’dore!

  • Isadora Paiva

    These look more like tomatoes to me, am I wrong? Either way, she’s WERQing it!

  • MilaXX

    She’s looking really great here. Never would have thought of pairing a polka dot sandal with that but it works. Makeup & hair are great.

      With ya on the hair MilaXX, it is lovely — but that heavy kohl liner seems to be making her eyes all squinty.

    I looooove this head to toe.

    I’m not a Dunst fan, but I will say she looks good here.  I agree with Catherine who said that a bangle or two would have gone a long way to spice up the outfit.

    I love Kirsten Dunst. Ever since I saw her in Dick (one of my favorite movies), I felt that if I ever had a daughter, I’d want her to be like  Miss Dunst. 
    And she looks great here.

    • Anonymous

      She was so great in that movie, wasn’t she?  And I can watch her in “Marie Antionette” over & over.  It’s like over-the-top couture porn for me.  And she looked so lovely….

    “Pizza place table cloth”!!  haha!  But, she looks great so… whatever.   Tomatoes it is…   If you hadn’t told me it was veggies, I might have thought it was an odd floral.

  • Anonymous

    Very cute, and the polka-dot sandals are a total thrill. I’m so happy to see more fun sandals lately. HOWEVER…I think the skirt is too long by a couple of inches. 

    • http://beautyforrealgirls.blogspot.com/ accidental housewife

      I agree about the length. It takes this down a notch from a ‘WERQ” to “Almost Perfect”.

    • Anonymous

      Yeah, agreed on the length. I hadn’t noticed it before, but now that you mention it, a slightly shorter length would have been better.

  • Anonymous

    Hair and makeup look great, but I’m just not feeling the cut (maybe length?) of the dress on her. And I hate the shoes.

  • Anonymous

    I quite liked it in the collection but I don’t think it translates well as an event dress. A bit too bland. 

    All I see is Dunst blandly embracing blandness…and if the shoes were more interesting, I’d say they were evil. But they’re not. They’re too boring to be evil…they’re just unattractive.

    Actually now I think of it, the dress would probably be perfect for Betty White.

      But Betty White is anything but bland.

        No, you’re right. I should’ve said her character in Golden Girls – Rose something?

    Something about her face looks off. Bloated? Too plain? Hair dragging her down? I think she might need to cut her hair and darken it a big. She’d be so cute as a strawberry blonde.

      Yup, I agree about the hair. She looked so pretty in Spiderman with the red hair. It really brought out her eyes.

    I dunno man…that dress is the exact shape of any of several bridesmaid dresses I remember from the pages of Bride’s in the 1980s.

      Oh good lord you’re right! I had to wear two of them as a late 80s bridesmaid. I was blissfully having fashion amnesia about bridesmaid dresses until now. Oh, the trauma!

    Wouldn’t it be great if she had a purse that looked like a chianti “bottle-in-a-basket”?
    But seriously… what a fun dress!!

  • Anonymous

    I really like the print and colors, but the shape of the dress feels more summery to me than fall…colors are totally fall.  Looks more like a ladies afternoon tea dress to me…a very pretty one at that.  I’m not sure if it’s right for the event or not. She looks great though, except, I’m really not digging the SJP eyes.

      Well, it is from the spring collection, so the summery-ness makes sense.

    I’m sorry, I just can’t take that dress seriously. I keep expecting her to bust out singing “Botch-A-Me.”

    Werq!  Kirsten looks lovely.  And the pizza place tablecloth dress reminds me of something Sophia Loren would have worn.

    I really love the prints in that collection. This fits her great. She looks fabulous in it. (I do think she looks tiny bit washed out…but that is due more to the hair color than the dress color, I suspect.)

    she looks great.  love her.

    WERQ!!!  I LOVE her, always have.  Even when she has made some less than perfect RC choices.  And I did not care for this collection either on the runway but she does make it work.  maybe it was the “Carmen Miranda” earrings on the model that did it for me.  Love Kirstens little flowers, so chic.

  • fragileindustries

    Like her in the dress much more than the model in the runway shot — something about the square/sweetheart neckline makes the model look like a giraffe.  Maybe it just works better with hair down.   Love the 50′s feel of the cut and the fabric makes it fun.

    They should have raised the hem, it looks way too long on Kirsten as opposed to the model.

    Technically, tomatoes are a fruit.  But in any event, she looks adorable.  Love her.

    I want that dress. It’s perfect. Except the color would be terrible with my pale skin and red hair.

    i had that dress multiple times in the 80s only the print wasnt as fabulous.
    & i had to put my hands the exact same way she does, in order to show the world i had the waist that the idiot drop waist on the dress hid.

    She looks great, but I hate the shoes. Violently.

    I really like the dress and the print.  My only complaint is that it looks like summer not a dress for November.

  • Anonymous

    I remember the runway show at which these looks first appeared–read about it right here.  Loved them on the models, love this dress on Ms. Dunst.  In fact, I think she’s wearing it better than the model.  (I am lusting after the yellow and red one shown from the back in the runway photo.)

    But I do think the shoes are too lightweight with the length and volume of the skirt. It’s a very Fifties dress–it could use some Fifties shoes.  Otherwise?  She’s WERQing it, for sure!

    The dress is great but her head looks washed out.  Since blond apparently isn’t her natural color, I think it’s ok to say that she should switch to a darker haircolor.  Also, the very dark mascara gives her a raccoon look.

    Boobs don’t fit. But she looks great.
    I’m wearing floral today that harkens to the palette of these dresses – every time someone complimented me, I mentioned how cool these Dolce and Gabbana dresses are. I also mentioned how, when I see these dresses, I pretty much always suddenly crave Italian food – a big, heaping portion of spaghetti with tomato sauce. Ha!

    Wow, my second OUT of the day.  Tomato print dress?  Why???  And if it must exist, it should only be worn to attend Independence Day parades, preferably ones on the town green where folks end up by singing “God Bless America” while gathered ’round the gazebo.  Plus she just annoys me: she always seems to be smirking.  I love the little polka-dot sandals, though.

  • Anonymous

    Sorry boys, but I’m just not feeling it with this look.  The dress isn’t bad but the hair and makeup look kind of bland and washed out.  With the right makeup – a little blush and more dramatic lips, this could have been a Werq, but I’d give her an out on this.

    I don’t know… something about the drop waist and the way that skirt hits the middle of the ankles just seems very dowdy and looks ill proportioned on somebody who isn’t 5’10″. Non?

    I can’t criticize anything, I’m just stunned and moved to tears by her neat, combed hair. Thank you, Kiki!

    I love it! The only comment I have is that, with these corset styled dresses, if you have bigger than model-sized boobs, there will be fit issues. If you look carefully you can see that the cups don’t cup her girls. But the print does wonders to mitigate that. If it was in a solid color, I bet she would have been an IN/OUT post instead of WERQ.

    LOVE the shoes.

    • Anonymous

      Dolce & Gabbana have wheeled out that cupped bodice for years now and I really don’t like it. It’s too small on anyone with boobs, and flatter girls who’ve worn them just look even smaller. There’s something just all wrong about the cut of it. Not so obvious on this, but it’s clearer on some of their past evening dresses.

    I love those sandals!!

  • Anonymous

    She’s not werqing it as far as I’m concerned.  I do adore the dress but something about the fit seems off.  The model looks fantastic but it’s just not flattering to Kirsten.  I would normally loathe that style of shoe but…polka dots!  They’re awesome.  I agree with everyone who pointed out that this is a spring/summer dress and so looks inappropriate for late fall/winter.  I know that celebs want to be the first to wear certain looks but it just looks so odd when they jump the season.

    I think her hair and makeup are awful.  Her hair is totally over-processed and lookes fried.  And that platinum color washes her out.  She’s got a bunch of scraggly, split ends.   She needs a trim and a warmer, more toned-down shade of blonde.  Also hate the raccoon eyeliner and pale lips.  It ages her.  So, not a WERQ.  Not even an IN.

    Too blond-er-exic. Makes her look older then she is and there is plenty of time for that. Dress is fun

  • jeneria

    I have a slightly unrelated question:  Is someone like Dunst really a starlet?  I mean, she’s been in Hollywood for two decades.  Starlet, to me, implies someone young, new to the scene, and maybe not all that talented.  I know a lot of people hate on Dunst, but I think she’s quite talented and has proven her chops time and time again.  Do we use starlet because we lack a word for those who aren’t on the level of Streep and Mirren and/or lack the charisma of Jolie and Theron?  Is there a step between starlet and full blown star?

    • Anonymous

      She’s only 29 and has been in the biz so long because she started as a child. But 29 is not a “starlet,” which, to my mind, should be reserved for 17-24 year olds just starting out.
      Maybe T-Lo were being facetious.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

    I dont’ know that this is a WERQ.  I think the waist, plus the length is all wrong for her.  I will give her props, since, for quite some time her wardrobe looked 2 rags away from rehab.  The dress is precious, just not on her.

    It helps that it’s a really good color for her and her hair and make-up are perfect. I kind of wish she had worn those fun, dangly earrings that the model is wearing. Her shoes are adorable.
