Why the 'Bachelorette' Stars Wanted to Burn Their Costumes After Filming

Bachelorette: Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher RADiUS-TWC

Even celebrities have to learn to get dressed on a dime.

While Bachelorette boasts some high-wattage stars, the indie film was done on a relatively low budget. That doesn’t mean the actresses — Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan — skimped on their wardrobes, though.

“I actually asked Chanel to lend me a bag and a watch for the movie because [my character] Reagan’s very put together,” Dunst told PEOPLE Thursday at the Los Angeles premiere of the comedy, which hits theaters Sept. 7 and is currently available on iTunes and Video on Demand.

Because the film takes place predominately during the night before a wedding, most of the cast members were in the same outfits for much of the two-month shoot. For Dunst, that meant wearing a high-neck dress almost daily to reflect her character’s “type-A personality.”

Fashion flashback alert! The hippie-chic look is back in full force these days, thanks in part to the resurgence of floral headpieces.

We first saw the accessory at the Coachella Music Festival, where Vanessa Hudgens and Paris Hilton both sported Cult Gaia rose crowns ($75). Although we weren’t shocked to spot the topper at the festival since Woodstock-worthy ensembles are encouraged, we were surprised to see these babies on the red carpet.

There are still four days remaining at the ultra-chic Cannes Film Festival, but we’ve been drooling over the fierce fashions since the opening ceremonies.

Tuesday, late arrival Kirsten Dunst (left) made her first move at the On The Road photo call, wearing a feminine Dolce & Gabbana dress, plus a Van Cleef & Arpels watch and metallic platform heels.

On Friday, Naomi Watts (center) brought the drama at the Madagascar 3 premiere, choosing a dreamy Marchesa confection paired with romantic waves.

The Most Memorable Looks at The Met Gala

The Met Ball is often considered the Oscars of fashion, so we expect (and anxiously wait!) to see what over-the-top looks will hit the red carpet. Last night was a sea of gold, peplum, and feathers, but here are the stars that stood out for taking real style risks:

Beyoncé: She’s baaack! The superstar was last to arrive on the red carpet, and she was totally worth the wait. The sheer and feathered Givency Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci gown was the perfect look to flaunt the singer’s enviable post-baby body.

Karolina Kurkova: Taking the color of the night to the next level, the supermodel stunned in a head-to-toe (turban included) gold Bridget Bardot-esque ensemble by Rachel Zoe.

Emma Stone: Never one to conform, Stone was one of the few ladies rocking a short dress. The actress looked like a doll in a red Lanvin mini adorned with more than 3,000 plastic flowers, according to her date (and designer) Alber Elbaz.

Florence Welch: Somehow the singer always makes her signature style work — and that was the case for last night’s intricate multi-tiered Alexander McQueen confection.

Booked: Michelle Williams for Band of Outsiders

Michelle Williams: Band of Outsiders Campaign

She may be in the midst of an Oscar campaign, but in Boy. by Band of Outsiders’ newest Polaroid campaign, Michelle Williams looks ready to quit her day job.

It’s her second turn modeling for the brand, and this time around, the My Week with Marilyn star plays an unruly office assistant: pulling pranks, filing reports and halfheartedly performing due diligence before taking a lunch break.

Despite the shoot’s location — a Hollywood cemetery! — Williams happily hams it up it in the brand’s floral spring/summer collection.

It seems designer Scott Sternberg has a knack for taking stars out of their natural habitat: previous campaigns depict Kirsten Dunst as a zookeeper, James Marsden as a mailman and Rupert Grint as a hard-partying gambler. Tell us: What do you think of Williams’s cool campaign photos?

In less than two weeks, five of Hollywood’s most sought-after leading ladies selected similar looks from Valentino’s spring/summer 2012 collection.

For the Jan. 9 Rome premiere of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Rooney Mara wore a scarlet, tiered gown with piqued sleeves and sheer paneling. In the days that followed, both Jessica Alba and Kristen Bell attended awards season soirees in leather-accented styles, while Kirsten Dunst and Kate Bosworth opted for slightly more black-tie versions of the same silhouette.

Vocal about her distaste for trends, Kirsten Dunst‘s must-have items run the gamut from the traditional to the thrifty.

“I use this as my toiletry bag,” she tells of seafood exporter Petrossian’s trademark caviar cooler (bottom left, $10). “It looks cute in my bathroom.”

Underscoring her crafty beauty solution, the Melancholia star also confesses to indulging in luxe home accessories. “Yes, I have an adult blankie,” she says of her penchant for sinfully soft $595 Ralph Lauren cashmere throws (top right), which she complements with $45 A.P.C. candles in Jasmine Vert (top left). They are “reasonably priced in the world of high-end candles,” she says. “And they last a long time.”
