Kirsten Dunst wore this Rodate Spring 2012 dress to the Museum of Contemporary Arts Gala earlier this week. She is the first celebrity to wear the new-season empire gown, which featured a strapless bodice and aqua and lace tiers. She paired it with pretty makeup and 40s style hair, diamond jewellery and a Chanel clutch.
I am just really not feeling this dress. Maybe it’s because I’m curvy, but I just don’t feel shapeless dresses. It also seems to be a little bit too big for her and hangs kinda awkwardly. Without her hand on her hip, her whole shape kinda gets lost. I’m not a massive fan of the colour either- I know it’s a big thing to wear next season, but it just feels kinda inappropriate and weird to be wearing such a summery colour, and such a summery style, in the middle of November. There just seems to be something missing, whether that’s a more-dramatic eye, a bolder lip, dazzling shoes or stand-out accessories, but the look just seems to feel a little incomplete.
In the words of editor Alex, “She looks she’s wearing a 1950s shower curtain/pregnant lady mumu.” But what do you think, hot or hot mess?
