She may be known for crater-deep dimples and alabaster skin, but Kirsten Dunst says she’s all grown up.
“I’m currently cleaning out my closet of childish dresses,” the Melancholia actress explains in the winter issue of T Magazine. “I want to start dressing like I’m 30. Some of the things I have are like, ‘I can’t wear this anymore, it’s not cute.'”
Items on the star’s shopping list include basics from A.P.C. and Balenciaga, which she stocked up on after a self-imposed shopping hiatus. “I didn’t shop for a long time,” she confesses, “People bother you.” Not on the agenda? Trendy items and New York-sourced vintage, which she dubs “too expensive.”
However, like most women, Dunst is a sucker for sartorial romance. “I like it when I do a photo shoot and it’s a fantasy of something,” she says. “You can dress me up.”
