Since making a huge splash on the Spring and Fall runways, hair accessories have become an ever-increasing red-carpet staple as well. From barrettes and coronets to bedazzled baubles and bands, starlets can’t seem to get enough of the insta-embellishments, and this weekend’s GLAAD Media Awards in L.A. were no exception. Taking a page out of Rodarte’s Fall beauty book, Elle Fanning wore a Jennifer Behr circlet, while Kirsten Dunst opted for the simplicity of a thick black satin ribbon, not unlike the leather version Guido Palau placed over side plaits at Valentino. Which look do you prefer?
You could blame it on the summer solstice, but we’re pretty sure Dolce & Gabbana’s bedazzled floral crowns from Fall are behind the recent spike in coronet adornment. Kirsten Dunst sported one in Cannes, Keira Knightley recently followed suit at the premiere of her new movie Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, and this weekend saw a slew of imitators. Dorothea Barth Jorgensen wore a leafy green incarnation at the model fest that was GrandLife and INGA’s Midsommarfest in New York, Vivienne Westwood crowned a handful of male models at her menswear presentation in Milan, and Margherita Missoni gave her bridesmaids—including one Tatiana Santo Domingo—rings of daisies to place on their heads as they walked down the aisle at her wedding to Eugenio Amos in Brunello, Italy. And so we put it to you, dear readers: Who wore it best?
Kirsten Dunst is nothing if not loyal when it comes to red-carpet dressing. The actress, who is a die-hard Rodarte fan, reps the brand any chance she gets—even when her sartorial choices are met with mixed reviews (see this year’s Met Costume Institute Gala). But for her first cameo at Cannes today in support of Walter Salles’ On the Road, Dunst changed things up a bit, selecting a gorgeous white lace dress from Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall show. How best to accessorize one of the Italian design duo’s embroidered confections? Make like Giovanna Battaglia and Tabitha Simmons already have at the Met and the New York City Ballet’s spring gala, respectively, and bring one of their elaborate, embellished headpieces along for the ride. Unlike her fashionable peers, Dunst’s hairstylist, Marcus Francis, chose to eschew Guido Palau’s “very Italian,” sleek middle parts, and instead paired her floral, beaded Dolce hair band with a wispy, soft coronet of braids. Thoughts on Kirsten’s runway-to-real-way coif?
After what was by all accounts one of her best performances to date in Lars von Trier’s Melancholia, Kirsten Dunst is showing her versatility at Sundance this week, with both her acting and beauty range. At the premiere of The Bachelorette, the Rodarte poster girl’s new gut-busting comedy that also stars Will Ferrell and Party Down‘s Lizzie Kaplan, Dunst sported a subtle red lip stain and a hodgepodge of matte Heidi braids, which started on one side of her hairline and evolved into a loose twist on the other. It was cute, it was chic, and it was totally occasion-appropriate; this is Park City, after all, not Cannes. Thoughts on Kirsten’s red-carpet romp?
As we’ve previously reported, Lady Gaga’s forthcoming fragrance will be created with the molecular structure of blood and semen. Turns out her skincare regimen is equally…progressive. To keep her complexion clear and hydrated, the pop star relies on “orgasms and spinach.” [Daily Mail]
Michelle Williams isn’t the only one who has cut her hair for a man. “The last time I cut [my hair] short, my boyfriend at the time was like, ‘You look so much better with short hair.’ So I cut it off,” Kirsten Dunst admits in the new issue of Lucky magazine. Currently in a grow-out phase, Dunst has other beauty preoccupations like Chanel nail polish and spray tans. “You lose like five pounds immediately,” she says of getting a faux glow. [Lucky]
There’s trouble a-brewing in the world of film-inspired nail polish collections. China Glaze’s The Hunger Games lacquer line, which the brand announced last month, has been called “unofficial” by Lionsgate films, the studio that is producing the anticipated thriller. Now comes news that China Glaze is hitting back—with a lawsuit accusing Lionsgate of breach of contract. Let the varnish war begin. [Racked]
