This is one of the prettiest pictures of her we think we’ve ever seen. And it looks like her; not a plastic, digitized version of her.
Kirsten Dunst covers the May 2014 issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK magazine in Miu Miu photographed by David Slijper and styled by Leith Clark.
On any ambitions to direct one day: “I would love it. I love getting immersed in things and being busy all the time. It’s just that I’m not going to write my own script. I don’t think I can, I honestly don’t. It would be easier to find a book to adapt. But, I’m not interested in directing right now. Maybe in three years. Who knows? Maybe I’ll have children then. I probably will – one day – want to try it.”
On fashion becoming less important to her as she gets older: “I cared more about outfits when I was younger… the older I get, the lazier I get.”
On gender: “I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued. We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking – it’s a valuable thing my mum created. And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armour. I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work…”
AIN’T TOUCHING THAT LAST BIT WITH A TEN FOOT POLE.
Oh, wait. Yes we will, because we’re two men in the 18th year of a successful relationship and we did it all without a wife, believe it or not. Kirsten doesn’t exactly have a history of long, sustained relationships, so we’d take anything she says on the subject with an enormous grain of salt, though. Yes, traditional homemaking activities are important. They are not, however, gender-based, nor are they the universal key to all successful relationships. You’ve been working in the entertainment industry your whole life and became wealthy upon turning 18, Kirsten. Stick to talking about those subjects and leave the life lessons to others.
Oh, well. At least the clothes are cute, although that Katrantzou looks silly on her.
