Kirsten Dunst in Proenza Schouler

Posted on March 13, 2013

Why Miss Kirsten. You look downright sophisticated.

Kirsten Dunst attends the premiere of ‘Upside Down’ hosted by Quintessentially in Hollywood, California in a Proenza Schouler black asymmetrical dress accessorized with a Stella McCartney clutch, Christian Dior jewelry, and Proenza Schouler pumps.

Proenza Schouler’s always been hit-or-miss with us; mostly miss. We can appreciate the thinking behind their designs – in fact, they strike us as two of the more intellectual designers working in America. But the downside to that is, a lot of their clothes look like complicated math problems in dress form. Our main gripe is that their stuff tends toward being overdesigned and overthought. We would say roughly the same thing about that runway look, but Kirsten’s version is stripped down, simplified, and far more chic, to our eyes.

We’re not in love with the shoes and we question whether those earrings were the right choice. Just because everything can go with black doesn’t mean everything should go with it. Still, we think the overall look is high-impact and sophisticated.
