Kirsten Dunst's Costume Institute Look: Hit or Miss?

05/08/2007 at 01:15 PM ET

It looks like Kirsten Dunst took the “costume” part of the Costume Institute’s Party of the Year very, very seriously last night. The Spiderman 3 star turned out in a volumous Yves Saint Laurent purple frock that looks like a cross between a 20’s flapper outfit and one of Marie Antoinette’s bedsheets. While we applaud her daring (perhaps she was feeling brave after her whirlwind premiere tour these past few weeks) we’re afraid she looks a little silly. (And we’re not even talking about the pouf on her forehead.) There’s just way too much of this dress — it looks like she’s drowning under all those folds. Perhaps the pregnant Noami Watts (who looked stunning, btw, in Zac Posen) could have been forgiven for this, but Kirsten, we know you could have done better! Do you agree? Tell us: Is Kirsten’s look a hit or a miss?

A disaster.

Personally, I thought Queen Raina of Jordan was one of the best dressed.

Wrong, Wrong, Wrong! on

What in the world! She always has a sour look on her face, and no matter what she wears, that is what people remember. But, don’t think I’m ignoring this dress! It’s absolutely horrendous! She has a bad attitude, and a horrible sense of style. Thumbs way down for Kirsten Dunst!

Celine, I am sorry you are French too. and…if this is what they wear in France when they go out, I’ll just keep that counry on my list of place NEVER TO GO.
Now, as for Kirsten, she is a fashion crime. Someone arrest her and sent her to France.

Is that tule? who the heck uses tule on an outfit unless they are 6 and dance in a balet recital?

She is horrible, as usual!! She is not a very attractive young lady anyway so you would think she would at least TRY and dress nicely. I don’t know who is worse her or those awful looking Olsen twins.

This chick is ugly as a mud fence anytime, so why on earth does she fugly herself up even worse? It looks like she made it out of drapes, and that thing on her head looks like a dead bird. Yuck!

Maybe without the headgear – incredible – maybe she shared stylist with Jessica Simpson.

Kate on

She has been looking like crap lately! Everyone of her Spiderman premiere outfits have been horrible, her hair is always a mess, and she just looks like a scrub! I don’t get it. I used to really like her, but lately she always looks like she needs to take a shower.
