Please enjoy Kirsten Dunst in this absurd Rodarte ensemble at her premiere

Los Angeles Premiere - WoodShock

With the combination of the Emmys, the film festivals and the start of the Oscar campaign season, I’ve been feeling like sort of a jerk about fashion. I actually do enjoy it when celebrities wear awful things because then I get to yell about it. But really… WTF are some of these designers even thinking? These are photos of Kirsten Dunst this week at the LA premiere of Woodshock, a film directed by Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy. Kiki has been wearing Rodarte throughout the promotional tour for the film, because derp, that’s the entire point: the film is basically an “artsy” advertisement for Rodarte. So if you’ve spent all that money on an art film to sell clothes, wouldn’t you actually want to put your best designs on your star? I guess not! Because look what Rodarte hath wrought: a silly, fug dress with literal ruffles around the boobs. HIGH DESIGN. Much Rodarte. Kiki made this stupid dress even worse by adding a floral garland as a shawl. My God. At this same premiere, Kiki also told Us Weekly that she’s probably going to ask the Mulleavys to design her wedding gown when she marries Jesse Plemons. I hope that they make sure to outline her boobs in baby-ruffles on her wedding dress too.

What else? This movie has a simple plot: a woman, played by Kiki, grieves for her deceased mother by going to the woods and getting high. She also eats cake. Apparently, Kiki accidentally got super-high during filming because some sketchy prop dudes gave her actual joints to smoke. Some highlights from her EW interview:

How she accidentally ended up getting high: “We had a prop team, but I don’t think they knew how to roll joints, so they just asked somebody who was around. I don’t know how they found this person, but I guess they threw in some fun nuggets for us. After this happened to me… some [crew members] took the weed home, and they were like, “That was some of the strongest weed I’ve ever smoked.”… They asked someone to roll some fake joints and they thought, oh, that’s fun, let’s throw a couple of these in.

Eating cake in ‘Woodshock’ and macarons in ‘Marie Antoinette’: “I think I’m eating the cake with disdain, here. I have one bite and spit it out! But, Sofia [Coppola] and I kick ourselves; we should have invested in Ladurée after Marie Antoinette because those stores popped up everywhere [after we used their macarons in the movie]. Recently, I was in France with my friend and my goddaughter, and the little girl wants macarons all the time. We went inside a Ladurée, and I was telling my friend how Sofia and I should’ve bought stock in the company before the movie. We didn’t know it’d turn into such a big thing. And then these girls walked out of the store and saw me. They were like, ‘Oh, Kirsten! The reason we got macarons is because of Marie Antoinette!’ And I was like, there you go. We made macarons hot again…They’re everywhere. They’re even in airports! There were none when we made our movie…Yes, we messed up not investing in them. But, okay, I feel like I have to move on to savory [in my next movie]. Pasta, I don’t know.

She really sounds bummed that she didn’t invest in Laduree! That’s funny. True story: I never saw Marie Antoinette. Should I? It felt like a movie I would not enjoy. Woodshock also seems like a movie I would not enjoy – I would rather get high and eat cake rather than pay to watch someone else get high and eat cake.

    Looks like standard Rodarte to me.
    I love couture but Rodarte is the ultimate Emporer-with-no-clothes to me.

  2. Narak says:

    Hotel shower curtains ran away and turned into a dress.

  3. Heather says:

    Is she pregnant?

  4. Mgsota says:

    Kaiser, no yelling about the bangs? Cuz they’re dreadful.

  5. Esmom says:

    I like certain elements of the dress but others not so much. That bodice is, as Tim Gunn would say, tragic. I actually like the floral garland, though. It’s twee but fitting for Kirsten.

  6. detritus says:

    She’s as bad as I invented the choker girl.

    La Duree is over 150 year old, and is known as one of the best and most prestigious macaron manufacturers internationally. If you are a foodie, you knew about La Duree far before some silly Dunst movie.

    They are also wheat free, which makes them perfect for the wheat intolerance, which is more of the reason why I think La Duree is expanding. Plus everyone is ready to move on from Cupcakes now.

    Thismaybe sounds really weird because, well macarons, but truly they are serious business.

      Yes – I’ve loved macarons and Laduree long before their movie (citron is my favorite and I have collected many of their boxes), but it’s probably one of those things where once you “discover” something, you notice it more often and think it’s become more popular.

      Also, that dress and shawl thing looks like she ran out of her house in her nightgown and stumbled through a clump of baby’s breath. I like her a lot, but that dress is a big no for me.

    • raincoaster says:

      No, she’s not wrong. One month there were no macarons anywhere other than a few particularly European bakeries (and Europe), and the next they were EVERYWHERE at every event, and every bakery, and delivery serviced popped up doing nothing but macarons. The fact that they existed before is why they were in the movie, but the fact that they were in the movie is why they became suddenly faddish.

      • Parigo says:

        Agree with raincoaster. Macarons have enjoyed an up in popularity since that movie came out in 2006. That was 10 years ago. People didn’t line out in front of Ladurée much before. Also most all Macarons are gluten free and a ton of small bakeries make better ones than Ladurée.

  7. KLO says:

    I adore Kiki. I have no love for the dress.

  8. Stacey Dresden says:

    I recently watched Marie Antoinette and loved it.

    • Rainlily says:

      Me too. I have watched it repeatedly and it isn’t what I would call my type of movie either. Surprise myself I like it so much. I especially love the soundtrack.

  9. Keira says:

    I think the fabric and color are pretty. The boob ruffles are really odd. I like this better than all the sheer black lace over mini skirts I’ve been seeing.

  10. TheOtherSam says:

    The black lacy Rodarte number she wore to the NY premiere was way better. More elegant, as much as it could be.

  11. Janetdr says:

    Pale blue see though seems just as bad as black see though. I don’t need to see people’s underwear! I most often like her style, but those ruffles…! Also, I would like to see her with paler lipstick once in awhile.

  12. Bug says:

    I am blown away by the flower “scarf”
    I hate the dress and I don’t think it suits her
    I like her very much as an actress
    I think Marie Antoniette is worth a single watch (enjoyable)
    while I absolutely adored “The beguiled”, I saw it three days ago and it’s still growing in me. A very beautiful piece of cinematic art. It has some flaws, but still.

  13. Mannori says:

    I just hope Kiki is not boozing again. I’ve seen some weird candids of her recently, Her face and demeanour reminded me of the time she was hitting the bottom. I also like her fiancee as an actor, but I’m not quite convinced of this coupling. She obviously wants to settle and kids, which is never a good reason to rush things. Is like she picked up the first “nice” guy around her to that purpose only: to procreate because her clock is ticking.
