Pinpointing One’s Style

Pre-Maxie I was quite certain of what my style encapsulated. I loved high-waisted skirts and little lace dresses; blouses with ruffles and headbands with bows – overtly detailed and feminine pieces were my favourite.

The second came a couple of months later as my body began to change once again. And now I feel another review is in order.

Named Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival for her role in ‘Melancholia’, Kirsten Dunst is also receiving acclaim for her unique, nonchalant approach to style. Wonderfully feminine and sophisticated yet equally strong – Dunst is the epitome of modern-day, cool-girl chic.

Favouring Chanel, Rodarte, Miu Miu or Chloé for her Red Carpet moments, Dunst channels ‘Old-Hollywood’ glamour with timeless ease. Often choosing pieces in interesting textures and diaphanous fabrics; Dunst teams them with a bold lip and no-fuss hair for maximum impact.
