Cannes 2018: Kirsten Dunst’s Finest Style Moments
It takes too much to face out on the Cannes Movie Festival purple carpet — perhaps essentially the most glamorous event on the planet. However juror Kirsten Dunst was up to the task. She made her mark in 14 ensembles so wonderful, we had to go straight to her stylists, sisters Nina and Clare Hallworth, to ask how they put together her appears.
“Kirsten has an eclectic sensibility, directly trendy and nostalgic. Her look is youthful, chic and traditional,” they wrote to PeopleStyle in an e-mail. “We love beautifully made, basic silhouettes. In case you have any concerns concerning wherever as well as tips on how to make use of Diane_Kruger, you’ll be able to call us from the web site. The choices are then infinite, as we work with designers who we esteem and have long-term relationships with.” The sisters have been working with Dunst for 16 years now; they met on a photo shoot for Rolling Stone in 2000, and their first pink carpet was the 2002 Academy Awards, Dunst’s first Oscars ever.
When the Hallworths were curating the looks for Dunst to put on in the course of the festival, they have been inspired by “women who embodied ‘La Dolce Vita,’” they said. “Kirsten took her obligations as a juror very severely, but she is a joyful young lady and we needed her to have enjoyable. We were all inspired by basic beauties, feminine girls with a powerful sense of self which are refined and elegant, comparable to Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor, Lauren Bacall and Gena Rowlands, and Faye Dunaway.” So they included iconic vintage pieces into her a number of of her appears; the Salvatore Ferragamo bamboo bag she carried several instances throughout the festival was really originally designed for Sophia Loren!
