There are some really good celebrity style moments, and then there are the looks that really stick to your mind, the ones you are desperately trying to recreate at home. In “Outfits in Fashion History,” the editors of Fashionista revisit their all-time favorite obscene.
By early 2011, bird motifs had become so ubiquitous that Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen devoted an entire “Portlandia” skit to mania, with the classic snap slogan, “Put a bird on it!” But in 2006, when Kirsten Dunst was in Cannes to support Sofia Coppola’s “Marie Antoinette”, the winged creature trend was just starting to take off, and the Rochas dress she had chosen for the occasion was fresh and exciting. .
From Olivier Theysken’s fall 2006 collection for the French house, which was inspired by Victorian chimney sweeps, Dunst’s dress was absolute perfection: a sooty shade of pale blue that stood out on her features, with an open back and a flock of birds heading towards the still light train.
Dunst wasn’t the type to get much style during this time, but because it was Cannes she amplified things on the hair and beauty front with a wrap-around dairy-style braid – left slightly messy. , of course – and a smoky eye further accentuating the entire gaze. The only accessory is a pair of diamond earrings that Marie-Antoinette herself would approve of.
For an outfit so simple, it instantly became an all-time highlight on the Cannes red carpet.
As a society, we’re not quite ready to put a bird back on it, but there’s never been a better time to pick up delicate pieces of diamond. Whether you are looking for the real or the fake, a single or a set, there really is something for everyone. Shop for Dunst-inspired jewelry in the gallery below:
