Kirsten Dunst Does the Cover of ‘Wonderland’

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!

  • WOW. She looks AMAZING! She has also made perfect career choices. Working with Sofia Coppola is a dream come true, not only in Marie Antoinette but also years earlier in the Virgin Suicides. They weren’t low profile, they just weren’t feed you with a spoon cinematic garbage. So unfortunately there was nothing for douche bags to quote from them on their Myspace profiles and no sweet happy ending with a bow on top. Also, if you can’t understand something that doesn’t reflect on the art, it reflects on you. Don’t take your movie illiteracy out on Sofia’s Masterpiece.

    • Hey, don’t get me wrong! I love the interesting stuff (I’m using “lower-profile” as a generic umbrella for “did my mom see it,” obvs). But just because Sofia Coppola is a genius does not make Marie Antoinette a masterpiece. It was an interesting exercise in style, but it only required one level of feeling from its cast: brittle. If I want “inscrutable,” I’ll take Synecdoche.

  • Hi, Neat post. There’s an issue together with your website in web explorer, may test this? IE still is the market chief and a huge part of other people will miss your great writing due to this problem.
