Kirsten Dunst has had kind of a weird career trajectory. In the 1990s she maintained this precocious, cherubic child-star vibe (à la Dakota/Elle Fanning), transitioned into making a few teen movies (Bring It On and Crazy/Beautiful, for instance), then started taking weirder, lower-profile roles (Marie Antoinette? Really?) even as she handled Mary Jane Watson duties in all three Spider-Man movies.
After a seemingly interminable career hiatus, she managed to take the best actress award at Cannes this year for Melancholia—this, even as director Lars von Trier got himself ejected from the festival. (Look at her face!)
But—and I’m sorry if this detracts from Kiki’s diverse body of work—all I want to talk about is her hair.
How gorgeous is her pixie cut? How has Kirsten Dunst not been wearing her hair like this for the last 10, 15 years? Take careful notes, Evan Rachel Wood, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Anna Faris! This is how you do cropped hair!
