Kirsten Dunst: Melancholia and Shopping

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.”

Women age-we all do.Some things become inappropriate.True.
But the fashion police need to back off.Some people remain youthful into their 60’s and it’s not because they wear teenage fashions or get plastic.
Health,fitness and spirit stay fresh and strong and they have a right to express that.Are women relegated to a Victorian shelf because they turn forty?
Get over the grandma stereotype.

Thanks for the ideas you talk about through this site. In addition, many young women exactly who become pregnant tend not to even make an effort to get health care insurance because they worry they won’t qualify. Although some states currently require insurers supply coverage no matter the pre-existing conditions. Prices on these kind of guaranteed plans are usually higher, but when taking into consideration the high cost of health care bills it may be a safer strategy to use to protect your current financial potential.
