Kirsten Dunst - Met Ball 2012

Kirsten Dunst strikes a pose at the 2012 Met Ball held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

The 30-year-old actress walked the red carpet in a matching Rodarte ensemble. She accessorized with Neil Lane and Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry.

The day before, Kirsten caught a flight at LAX Airport with boyfriend Garrett Hedlund.

This year’s Costume Institute Gala Benefit – celebrating the opening of the Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibition – is co-chaired by Carey Mulligan, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, and designer Miuccia Prada.

    I think the skirt should have been shorter to make it look better. I don’t hate it but, I don’t understand. It Does look like something shell love to wear.

  • WTF???

    Like a young margaret thatcher.

  • busted


    I was thinking she would hit it out the park.

  • carrie

    the skirt is too long but she does very “actress from 1940″

  • AbFab

    Kirsten always faithful to Rodarte.

  • alan

    it isn’t christmas yet bitch what are you doing

  • Bryn

    Ho ho ho, Santa just came early! What a dumb ass!

  • Wunderba

    just don’t smile and show the snaggle tooth

  • dAM

    It’s Mrs. Claus!!!

  • kiki

    i think this dress may have been better suited for someone older. perhaps meryl streep. it makes her look much older than 30.

  • bird is the word

    santa claus is coming to town!

  • akR Styles


  • lola

    I love this! She’s so chic.

  • Be

    She looks like she’s auditioning for High Priestess in the SS in Nazi Germany.

  • MaisyRL

    if only it had been a different color combo! why did it have to be red/white with a black belt? it’s just too reminiscent of xmas and the santa suit. in any other color/color combo it would’ve killed. usually Kristen Dunst knows how to dress on the red carpet. a little disappointed.

  • AbFab

    @MaisyRL: Actually the color has been described on other sites as pumpkin. Also, tangerine. You can see the contrast with the red carpet.

  • Autobahn

    Love the hairpiece! Only Kiki can pull this off.

  • kisskiki

    mmmm… i have a little problem with the dress… but her look is dazzling…

  • Peapo

    She would make a beautiful Bonnie, in Bonnie and Clyde. She has a Faye Dunaway circa the 70′s doing the 40′s look. I agree the dress isn’t perfect for the event but it has an incredible vintage look.

  • Too much orange

    Why did the stylist spray tan her normally cool pale skin orange colored and then put her in an orange dress that is for a much older woman on top of being an awful color? The look just doesn’t work and makes Kiki look older than she is.
    I guess I can see the look they were going for but it doesn’t look like they came close to pulling it off. I am surprised Hedlund didn’t attend with her most people expected them to. Seems odd he didn’t in my opinion.

  • Too much orange

    @WTF???: That isn’t someone most actresses want to look like. LOL

  • D

    Shame we can’t see her toes, I want to suck on them so bad. I hope Garrett knows how lucky he is.

  • jane-lee

    I like kristen, but this style is not terrible

  • Nan

    Among everything skinny and sparkly that is very refreshing. If her aim was to stand out, I’d say she managed.

  • Emma

    It’s nice to try different .

    The whole looking is so vintage. I just don’t like tis hair style.
