Few actresses have achieved careers quite as enduring as our June cover star Kirsten Dunst – especially when you consider that her very first film appearance was at the tender age of six. Her debut role was in Woody Allen’s New York Stories and then she outshone Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise Interview with the Vampire. Remember Little Women and Jumanji? She had a starring role in both as a youngster. As she grew up, she made the transition from child actress to teen star seamlessly; those years saw a stint as the queen of rom coms – Drop Dead Gorgeous and Bring It On are now cult classics – before she graduated to the blockbuster Spider-Man trilogy and more complex roles in her adult years, including roles in The Virgin Suicides as well as her Palme d’Or winning turn in Lars von Trier’s Melancholia and the visually stunning Marie Antoinette.
She has over twenty years of walking the red carpet under her belt, so it’s no surprise that Dunst remains a staple on best-dressed lists; she is now a favourite in the fashion world – often wearing pieces by designers Rodarte sisters Laura and Kate Mulleavy, or by Chanel, a fashion house with which she’s enjoyed a long affiliation. She isn’t afraid to take a red carpet risk; she’s known for her ability to play with with bold prints and colours while on the red carpet.
Dunst is currently kicking up a red carpet storm as a member of the Cannes Film Festival jury, so we thought there was no better time to take a look back at our June cover stars’ most memorable fashion moments:
