Kirsten Dunst: Melancholia and Shopping
David X Prutting/BFAnyc/Sipa

She may be known for crater-deep dimples and alabaster skin, but Kirsten Dunst says she’s all grown up.

“I’m currently cleaning out my closet of childish dresses,” the Melancholia actress explains in the winter issue of T Magazine. “I want to start dressing like I’m 30. Some of the things I have are like, ‘I can’t wear this anymore, it’s not cute.'”

Items on the star’s shopping list include basics from A.P.C. and Balenciaga, which she stocked up on after a self-imposed shopping hiatus. “I didn’t shop for a long time,” she confesses, “People bother you.” Not on the agenda? Trendy items and New York-sourced vintage, which she dubs “too expensive.”

However, like most women, Dunst is a sucker for sartorial romance. “I like it when I do a photo shoot and it’s a fantasy of something,” she says. “You can dress me up.”

People bother you!?!

Nice to see one female celebrity who knows when certain clothing styles aren’t age-appropriate. Way too many others need to take note.

Jennifer Aniston always looks great. She works out hard, eats right and has a great body. I don’t know what issue people have with the way she dresses. It makes no sense.

I like her an all but her face looks like she’s reaching 40 and not 30. She’s been at the botox doctor and her lips are taking on the Joker effect. I hope she stops now because she’s a natural beauty.

She’s only 30, good grief, that is young. A woman doesn’t need to start watching the mini hemline and kid looking stuff until she is nearing 40, then it’s good to start dressing classy and watching the hemline and kid-funky looking stuff.

thats right on

I thought this article was going to be about how she is going to dress more young to reflect her age, she usually dresses like a grandma.

I just saw her at a restaurant last weekend and she looks very naturally pretty (no botox) and well-dressed.

How much are they paying you, People, to keep posting stuff about her on your web site. Enough!
