Kirsten Dunst's Costume Institute Look: Hit or Miss?

05/08/2007 at 01:15 PM ET

It looks like Kirsten Dunst took the “costume” part of the Costume Institute’s Party of the Year very, very seriously last night. The Spiderman 3 star turned out in a volumous Yves Saint Laurent purple frock that looks like a cross between a 20’s flapper outfit and one of Marie Antoinette’s bedsheets. While we applaud her daring (perhaps she was feeling brave after her whirlwind premiere tour these past few weeks) we’re afraid she looks a little silly. (And we’re not even talking about the pouf on her forehead.) There’s just way too much of this dress — it looks like she’s drowning under all those folds. Perhaps the pregnant Noami Watts (who looked stunning, btw, in Zac Posen) could have been forgiven for this, but Kirsten, we know you could have done better! Do you agree? Tell us: Is Kirsten’s look a hit or a miss?

if she would have worn the curtains in my grandmother’s house she would have looked better than that. However, besides the dress (if you can call it that), her face looks aweful. She was either hung-over, crying hours before the event or suffering of severe nausia while this picture was taking. Let’s be honest, even if she would were the most beautiful outfit, Kisten Dunst will always be a miss.

Kirsten Dunst, Incredible Actress, Inspiration to Many –

Why is it that people on the sidelines like to poke fun at people who are enormously successful? Maybe because it is easier to find fault in someone than to better ourselves?

Congratulations Kirsten! You are a beautiful person! Your part in Spiderman III is sensational! My mom was a big band singer so now I am even more crazy about you than before.
:-) Blessings, Joey O.
p.s. Did I see you in Chicago O’Hare in late February?
