Kirsten Dunst in Louis Vuitton

Posted on July 05, 2012

Kiki looks really cute here:

But that dress sure does look heavy for Paris in the summer. To her credit, she looks cool as a cucumber. And something else we just noticed about her: she’s a blue-eyed blonde who can wear pink and somehow make it look edgy. That’s a gift. We know a lot of blue-eyed blondes who avoid pink like the plague, fearing the dreaded “Barbie” remarks. Whenever we say “That is SO her color” about someone, it’s almost never in reference to pink, but that really is a great color for her; especially paired with black. Love the idea of a gold metallic clutch paired with this but that one looks a little like a makeup case to us. Still, super-chic little look for Miss D.

      I’d like it better if it was knee-length and if she wasn’t smirking.

      • Sobaika

        Knee-length or a maxi dress rendered in different fabric. It is heavy looking.

        • Carolyn Broughton

          I think it would have looked better knee length. Hair & makeup look good

        • Marcia Paul

          she always smirks, I think. One of the reasons she bugs

      • Kiltdntiltd

         Yeah, the smirk really kills it for me.

        • Jill_3

           I kind of find the smirk amusing. “Kiki looks really cute here”… and she knows it.

      • foodycatAlicia

        The top half just looks the wrong shape for the bottom half to be a maxi! And yeah, the smirk is annoying.

        • Little_Olive

          That is the thing here: The relation between top and bottom. 

          And the square on the top need to be better fitted.

      • NC_Meg

        Me too. As I scrolled, down, I was just waiting for the fabric to stop. 

      • siriuslover

        she always smirks, I think. One of the reasons she bugs me.

      • SapphoPoet

        She always smirks.

      • Alisa Rivera

        I think she smirks because of her teeth. There are a lot of shots online of her canines protruding over her lower lip, aka snaggletooth. 

      • emily

         yes! I wish it was short!

      • Spicytomato1

        Yes about the knee-length…as I scrolled down I actually expected the dress to end there and was surprised when it continued on down. 

        I give her a pass on the smirk because goodness knows I always seem to be caught in weird facial expressions in photos. I can’t imagine being subjected to them the way a celeb is.

    • annie_wonder

      J’aime beaucoup.

    • MilaXX

      I love a maxi dress, especially in the summer, but the bottom of this one looks a little sister wife-y to me. I think it would have looked better knee length. Hair & makeup look good though.

    • MajorBedhead

      I had a dress like this once, back in the late 70s. When I was 8 years old. My mother made it for me on her ancient Singer sewing machine.  It was hot and itchy. I didn’t like it then and, oddly enough, I still don’t.

    • Kayceed

      I don’t like how the dress is pieced together, breaking up the pattern. This looks like a knock-off of a designer dress, not an actual.

      • ballerinawithagun

        I agree. Why use that fabric for all of that piecing.

    • PeggyOC

      Sorry, boys, but I’ve got to disagree.  That is one fugly dress.  Ill-fitting on top and too heavy on the bottom.  And it has the dreaded “nightgown ruffle” on the very bottom.  Hideous.  And I think that smirk says “Hell, I look like crap, and I know it.  Can I go change?”  Top it all off with Cocker Spaniel hair and you’ve got an out (not that you were asking for a vote).

    • siriuslover

      She does look good, but that dress is really, really cute. I had a dress kind of like that in the early 90s. I miss it.

      • Glammie

        Agree.  I actually like the length, it’s unexpected.  It’s not just another little dress, but the top and fabric still make it casual enough for day.

    • tereliz

      Yeah, that extra tier of fabric works on the model because she’s a million feet tall and the line of the dress is already being broken by a long jacket and even longer boyfriend (grandpa?) cardi, but I wish Kiki’s had been tea-length. Great color on her.

    • Gayer Than Thou

      It looks inexpensive.  But since it’s Louis Vuitton, I’m going to assume it isn’t inexpensive.  And that makes it look a little cheap.

    • Linda Merrill

      i love it, but I think it needed a real belt and not the self-belt, to break it up. 

    • kimmeister

      Well at least she’s not wearing that hideous rust-colored thing over it like the model is.  The print and color of the dress are cute, I just don’t care for its overall shape.  She looks like she has no boobs, which we know is not the case.

      • Aurumgirl

         God, you have a point there.  This is a case of the celeb showing the designer how it should be done. 

    • shirab

      She’s mostly blond, but those roots tell a different story. Why is it that star people have such poor root management skills?

    • Terri Griffith

      This looks like it was made in a high school sewing class…in 1969! And it’s too long.

      • gillian holroyd

        Yup, looks like a home ec project. A Simplicity pattern I’d say, so shapeless. Perfect for beginners. 

    • MarinaB

      I will never understand how that person became a famous celebrity. 

    • Andy Morris

      All I can think of is bridesmaid. Or Dorothy-as-bridesmaid. Neh.

    • alyce1213

      Hideous. Looks home made from fabric nobody knew what to do with.

    • SophiaPehawkins

      If I was wearing Louis Vuitton every other time I went out, I’d be smirking the shit out of my face, too.

      Also, she does wear a lot of LV. Is she a spokesmodel? Is she trying to be?

    • Judy_J

      Oh, my god!  Looks like someone raided the 1970’s closet.  Pure Gunny Sax, if you ask me.

    • carolie_king

      Boring neckline, baggy, ugly pattern, horrible self-belt, no jewelry, and KD always looks kind of overbleached and moist and scraggly to me.  And her smirk is her natural smile, unfortunately.  Ick.

    • guest2visits

      I would have loved this dress on her if it were modified to knee length or shorter. Otherwise; pretty.
      And how nice to be in Paris everyone; and not being photograghed in front of dumpsters.

    • msdamselfly

      Really suits her

    • Sarah Winningham

      Love it. One of the rare dresses on a celebrity I could imagine wearing myself.

    • AuntieAnonny

      Am I stupid for being surprised that this dress is something LV would design?

    • Rrroza

      Note that she is not smirking in the 3d pic down. Love the color on her.

    • miagain

      She forgot the fetching brown smock over her dress… goodness me!

    • lesmaha

      I really like this dress–and maybe it’s a cooler summer in Paris than heatwave-central US?  And this shade of pink is not candy-striper pink to me, which may make it seem edgier–although “edgy” and “pink” in the same sentence is a challenge…. 

    • PeaceBang

      This was the opposite of a “scroll-down fug” for me: it was a scroll-down LOVE. I think she looks adorable. That’s a great dress.

    • PinkLemon

      the model’s outfit is cuter…

    • ThaliaMenninger

      The purplish shade of pink in the dress makes her skin look purply, too, to my eye. So I’m not on board that this is a flattering color for her. I also think her hair looks unkempt and the dress looks too long and kind of schlumpy.

    • plinkiedoodle

      I do think a shorter version of this dress would have been a better choice. 

    • EEKstl

      She looks great.  I think the pink looks edgy on her because it’s a cool dress; some prim little suit in the same color and we might be crying Barbie.

    • suzq

      That dress looks hideously cheap for LV.  They’re showcasing a line and not doing it in an effective way.

    • marilyn

      That dress is dowdy.  If it were just above the knee, it would be a cute dress for her.  This length is weird:  The top says summer dress, the bottom says Little House on the Prairie.  That is not a suitable print for a ruffle.  The lines get wonky and distracting.  She needs to cut it off, hem it, and get on with her summer.  The metallic purse is evening, and the dress is daytime.  

    • NurseEllen

      As I scrolled down, I was SO surprised to see the dress keep going, all the way to the floor.  This needs to be knee length otherwise it just looks wrong.  But she looks unperturbed, which counts for something.

    • greymain

      bad smirk…bad fit.

    • Call me Bee

      Yes–this would be an awesome dress knee-length.  And I think she can pull off wearing pink because, thankfully, Kiki never wears lipstick the same pink as her clothes.  She looks fresh as a daisy! 

    • formerlyAnon

      I am usually a fan of the 70s flavor, which I think this has. But to me it feels like a failed attempt to be 70s, rather than a nod in that direction.

      Nonetheless, she is cute in it.

    • cleep1000


    • sagecreek

      a) CUTE!
      b) I want.

    • TSkot

      Would be cute short; too Little House on the Prairie as is.

    • Esz

      Wow it’s so 30s – I like it!

    • Ass Kicking Adviser

      Totally cute. I love it. 

    • Sierra Delta


    • quiltrx

      Cute dress, cuter if a few inches were lopped off.  The look sort of begs for visible ankles to me!

      • PaulaBerman

         That was my feeling, but I’d say lop off a few feet. This would look great just above the knee.

    • Judih1

      Not liking any of the recent designs coming from Louis Vuitton recently. Maybe they should stick to purses and suitcases

    • librarygrrl64

      With pink and blondes, I think it’s all about the fit. Too tight, too short, and (heaven forbid) sparkly, and it’s Barbie city. This is just casual enough to work.

    • Warrior89

      I’d like it shorter.  The bottom of it gives it a certain “little house on the prairie” look I don’t enjoy.

    • marilyn

      The print makes me a little sea sick.  If this were a high school sewing project, I would give it a B.  The semi-windowpane check print is really not suitable for all of these seams and curves.  The curved seams make the print go off kilter, in the bodice and just below the hip in the skirt.  This explains why I get queasy looking at it, and why it does not get an A.  This looks like something a teenage girl would have done for a home sewing project in the 1970’s.  Pink and brown print?  In a homespun prairie girl sundress?  The designer gets an A for construciton, and a C for fabric choice,  =  B. 

      The real tragedy is that it is not a designer quality product in any way.  This is not sophisticated enough to be sold  even off the rack.  It took a lot of nerve for a designer to pass this off as couture.  

    • Maddie Meyers

      Marilyn is right — this looks like home sewing.  And the styling in the LV photo is laughable:  that stretched-out sweater looks like something wardrobe would put on an extra when they needed that special piece that says “crazy Bag Lady.”

    • redgauntlet

      Sweet, but that’s a day fabric. It needs to break just above the knee.

    • bitterk

      Very cute dress on her

    • Vera


    • nannypoo

      Ghastly. Bad color, bad fit, bad fabric, a trifecta of hideousness.

    • Phyllis Craine

      That’s a very retro pink too and why I think it’s so refreshing. Pink is a once beautiful color much abused in the past 30 years.

    • Susan Crawford

      Wow! That dress made me flash back to a dress I had in the ’70’s – pink and cocoa gingham, similar neckline, slightly fuller skirt. Kiki looks amazing these days, I think. And you’re right, somehow she manages to overcome the dreaded cotton-candy, Barbie blonde effect when wearing pink. Good for her! Love the metallic with the dress, but I would have gone for a larger, more definitive shape.

    • Pamela

      Blonde?  Methinks not.  Check the roots.
