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?

YIKES……She does need a stylist – STAT!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the worst dress in her already horrible nightmarish wardrobe.

disgusting. like her.

Carla on

She is so homely and has absolutely no sense of style. I wish she would just go away. She peaked at 10.

NMc on

One word. Bjork.

Lola on

It is really ugly! she has never been real stylish at all.

Celine on

It’s a hit… I think that her dress is really cool, it’s totally different from anything else. She and Johnny Borrell look accorded (the outfits look good together, sorry i’m french…), well for me it’s a hit!

Val on

Definitely a big fat miss! She was obviously trying to do a bit of a flapper/1920s thing but failed miserably! Kate Bosworth and one other girl pulled it off much much better.

Maybe I go to too much because everytime I see her now all I can this is “What a mess!”. But this definitely takes the cake. With all the money she makes from Spidey movies, she can afford alot more than halloween curtains.

Lauren on

Definite miss, it looks awful on her!

My first reaction was: WHAT THE H-E-*-* IS SHE WEARING?!?!?!!!!!!
