What Was Kirsten Dunst Thinking?

03/29/2007 at 04:33 PM ET

Never mind the new guy, Johnny Borrell of the British band Razorlight. What we can’t get over is what Kirsten was thinking when she put together her pub-hopping outfit on Tuesday night. Let’s start with the obvious — yellow thigh-highs with orthopedic oxfords? A dress that’s so short that it qualifies as a shirt? And the clashing bright-red Chanel purse and maroon floral scarf? Oh, Kirsten. We’re all for mix-and-matching, and London is the right place to try out eccentric fashion choices … but we can’t help but think that you’ve missed the mark on this one. Tell us: What do you think of Kirsten’s oufit? Would you ever wear it?

Just a guess about the vacant look in her eyes, but there was probably no “thinking” behind this outfit.

I still need to think exactly how I want to put my comment about Kristen’s get-up, europe style vrz america style, fashion vrz art, and good vrz bad comments………????

I find myself in a quandary over the matter, as silly as it might seem!! Because, there are so many comments here that are….first funny and second deserve good debate….I still need to think about it…hum????

But, all n’ all….finally a topic in “off the rack” that’s worth talking about, maybe I feel that way because I am artist and all these words I know…”paintings”, “art”, and even artist’s names on this side of the Atlantic have been mentioned…..I got all excited!!

But, I’ll take an artist’s stand and just stick with a CRITIQUE about Kristen’s overall get-up….because it’s so much like a painting (in art school, not a museum piece quite yet). But, the overall composition is bold and deals with shapes of color and texture, but it needs refinement in some areas. It needs (or as a teacher of mine would say….”it wants something”…???) well, it needs another splash of brillant (not screaming) color to bring it all together….it’s not 100% yet, it’s like an “unfinished painting”, there is too much black here and it is fighting for attention just as the split pea green soup tights (like ping-pong, you go back n’ forth too much too quickly)….

The only change I would make to this “painting with fabric”, would be a nice slim smooth skirt (above the knee) of the color permanent rose straight out of the tube by Winsor Newton….if you are an artist reading this you’ll know what I am talking about.

Winsor Newton’s Permanent Rose (is a lovely shade of a rich deep pink, not too hot or too intense), that color would tie in the scarf with bits of pink, highlight the red bag, compliment the split pea green tights/mustard shoes, off set the matt black, and still be in keeping with what’s going on here!!!

AND, did you know that it is VINCENT VAN GOGH’S BIRTHDAY TODAY….March 30th….how perfect….those tights are the same color used in many of his paintings, now I have to think that is…COOL and good timing!!

Anyway, have fun debating…I am sure I’ll join in again!!

Cheers and Laters!!

I cannot stand this girl! The outfit is terrible, but she always looks terrible.

I haven’t seen a cute bone in this girl since “Interview with a Vampire”, when she was like, 13………

j on

she was thinking how she looks good no matter what and how it’s not even necessary to look in the mirror before leaving the house because she’s a STAR and she can get away with anything, anytime, anywhere.
what a deluded attitude to have.

Maddy on

She can get away with it in London. I’m from London and trust me, people where whatever they want, so she fits right in! She looks amazing!

Summerann on

I won’t slam Kirsten, I really enjoy her movies and I love the fact that she doesn’t throw herself into the limelight and get attention in all the wrong ways like some of young hollywood! There is NOTHING wrong with standing out and making a statement with your clothes. And Dawn, saying her boyfriend is ugly just makes you sound like a moron, jealous much?!?!

Hailey on

Kirsten was in the UK when this picture was taken. This look is currently in style and in Britian(Europe in general) EVERYONE is wearing very similar styles, colours and dress lengths. The sixties are back – it just takes America longer to catch on. Personally though i dont like the shoes…

Rebecca on

Not in a million years would I wear that outfit. It wouldn’t be half bad if it weren’t for the colors. Those tights and shoes are the pukiest, most unflattering color. Just looking at them makes my stomach queasy. The purse and scarf clash, but at least they are not the same color as the tights or shoes.

Francesca on

Kirsten Dunst is known for borrowing different looks, & combining them, for her own unique style. Here, she’s stolen the Jolly Green Giant’s legs, Bea Arthur’s shoes, Morticia Addams’ ratty dress top, Delta Burke’s “Designing Women” scarf, Courtney Love’s hair and Mary-Kate’s red Chanel purse.
