Sartorial Compass: Kirsten Dunst, Demure Darling

I had a busy travel day yesterday hence why this is going up on a Monday, but I couldn't miss it.  Kirsten has shown us since the Little Women days that she is a bit of an old soul.  And her sartorial choices often highlight that.  She's quite the lady on the red carpet during the day and at night.  Check out a few of her most ladylike looks below.

All of these looks scream demure to me.  The dress on the far left is by Miu Miu a couple of seasons ago, she pulls off the mixed patterns beautifully.  Next she brings a fun pattern to a classic shape, and the third dress is my FAVORITE!  In this Chloe dress from the Spring 2011 line, Kirsten pulls off the marigold color beautifully and her lips pop with red.

She also dresses like a lady in the evening.  Most of these looks are fairly recent like the blouse and skirt combo and the beautiful short sleeved dress both for premieres of her movie Melancholia.  The third look reminds us that she's been a lady for years, this is a Chanel dress that she wore to the 2007 Oscars.  It features a collar (she's clearly fond of collars), feathers and art deco-esque beading, it's an unexpected look for the Oscar's but she pulls it off.  And finally a simple and classic all white ensemble from a recent event.

This week and into the next couple of months it's definitely worth trying out some similar ladylike looks.  Collared menswear shapes are great in beautiful feminine prints, and a voluminous mid-length skirt is the way to go, and don't be afraid to cover up every once in a while!
