Kirsten Dunst Wants To Dress You


When I think of the world's great fashion designers, Kirsten Dunst is not a name that pops into my head. In fact, most of what Kirsten Dunst wears looks like rejects from a garage sale. You know the stuff I'm talking about. You have had three or four garage sales and no matter how low you make the price on something, people just never seem interested in it. So, eventually you just throw it in the trash. Those clothes are the clothes Kirsten usually wears.

In an idea that was probably spawned by excessive drinking, Kirsten Dunst is designing her own knitwear range of clothes that will make their debut during NY Fashion Week in February. Kirsten is even getting one of the prime days, times and locations to debut her collection.

So, if you want clothes that reek of booze and cigarette smoke, and have bleached blonde hair stuck in all the knitting, then you should be the very first in line and hopefully you will be the only one in line.

the actress will debut her latest line - a COLLABORATION with the cashmere giants Lutz + Patmos - on Sunday, February 3, at the New Museum. It isn't the first time Lutz + Patmos has been to Hollywood. Their past guest "designers" include Liv Tyler and Julianne Moore, a sweater dress with Sofia Coppola plus one collection with Carine Roitfeld at the drawing board.

Man, she is justed hated isn't she? I can be as snarky as the rest, but I like her. I think beacuse I love Drop Dead Gorgeous so much, she will forever get a pass in my books.

I will never forget that picture of Kirsten Dunst with a box in her hand for some kind of device that examines your stool.

Just kinda defined her, to me. She looks like she has IBS...it would explain her sour looks all the time.

THat picture of her on this entry is hilarious. Her dressed in a pillow case, him trying desperately to be a Ramone, their matching glasses and droid like trances. Love the cig on her lip. They're as bland and rotten looking as a moldy milk carton.

Kevin, it's weird isn't it? I get that there are some things wrong with her, but the level of hatred on the internet in general seems out of proportion to anything bad I've heard about her. I try not to read about her much because I like most of her movies, and like her in them.

I've heard she's more than dabbled in heroin. I wonder if Ent's heard any 'rumours' about that in his little LA world?

Trix said...

Dont know if he has, Kara, but I know Ted C has devoted a blind or two, to her more-than-dabbling heroin use.

Nicole said...

she's just so plain and looks like she's trying too hard to achieve a euro-trash look. She just looks like trash.

She's a junkie.

She's a really good actress. I just can't stand those snaggle teeth....I thought they were fake in Interview with a Vampire.

:B

heather said...

nicole that's funny. I don't think anyone goes for the "eurotrash" look, it's an insult NYers use to define those slimy shady faux-cultured poseur euro guys in clubs. Maybe boho or hobo chic?

Nicole said...

@ heather - hmmmm,that's actually really interesting because among my group of friends/geographic location "eurotrash" is like you're TRYING to be dirty yet serious and artistic at the same time. Definitely poseur-ish too.

I always thought hobo chic was cute. Kiki's just dirty.

Thank you for the info, I always find it interesting to hear coloquial ways of describing things.

either way, kikis icky.

heather said...

nicole I think Kiki is trying to go for hobo (MK Olsen) or boho (Sienna Miller) but Kiki just can't quite get it. Eurotrash caught on big and lots of people use it for more but in NYC it was trying to be chic but "Americans couldn't possibly understand because they're so provincial BS". They invaded the clubs, naive chicks thought the 'fragrance', accents and poses meant sophistication. Think Euro lounge lizard. They'd be waiting at the ropes at good clubs in London, Paris etc.

Kat said...

I'm still laughing at Jax's comment. And I couldn't agree more.

It didn't take me long to learn that I wasn't REQUIRED to attend resuscitations in the ER. That didn't keep them from calling me on occasion, though. Little kid with invisible veins? Call the NICU nurse. Yes, the one who thinks feet are good places to start IVs. Call her.

Really, I didn't mind because they always called me while I still had something to shoot for. Mostly they got the IV in one stick and I didn't hear from them. Once in a great while I'd get that page. Sometimes they hadn't tried, but only because the kid had been in a lot and the parents were feeling really stressed. Late evening, I'd finished my routine restarts, I was just waiting around for pages for stick-and-runs anyway.

And resuscitations. Everywhere but the ER. So when the pager went off about the same time as the "Code Blue, Main Lobby" I nearly experienced loss of sphincter control.

I'd been to a few adult codes, but in the lobby? Can't be happening! I couldn't bolt down the steps, because I knew I would need my cart. The one with all the catheters, IV fluids, tubings -- all that stuff. No drugs, though.

The wait for the elevator seemed to take forever. It was probably under a minute, but I needed to get there. Nobody else around when it arrived and, fortunately, it was an express run to the first floor. When I got to the lobby, I was glad to see that the scene was well under control - and that someone had managed to get a crash cart to the scene.

What I didn't expect was the age of the person being coded. He couldn't have been much more than 15. 120 lbs soaking wet (which he wasn't, except for the vomit). He'd been intubated and the IV was already in place by the time I got there, so all I needed to do was stay out of the way while they moved him to a gurney and off to the ER.

I got the rest of story later from someone who'd been one of the first on the scene. He'd been intubated because he wasn't breathing effectively, but they'd never lost the heart rate. His blood alcohol level was nearly 4 times the legal limit of 0.08. Drugs? Tox screen wasn't back yet, but with a blood alcohol level that high, who needs drugs?

He'd been at a party. The friend's parents knew there was booze and thought the kids were safer drinking at someone's house. They hadn't realized how easily adolescents can go beyond intoxication to alcohol poisoning. Nobody wanted to get in trouble, so instead of calling 911 when the kid started looking bad, they called his brother - who pulled up to the nearest door when he started vomiting. Fortunately, someone inside recognized how serious things were and called for help right away or the story might have had a different ending.

You can kill yourself faster when you mix drugs and alcohol, but you can do a pretty good job with alcohol alone. The LD 50 (fatal for 50% of adults) blood alcohol level is considered to be .4 An adolescent who isn't used to drinking can be in a lot of trouble with a blood alcohol level half that. Choking on their own vomit is just one of the ways an intoxicated person can get into trouble. Alcohol can interfere with the part of the brain that controls breathing. Blood sugar can drop to the point that seizures occur. Dehydration and electrolyte imbalances can result from prolonged vomiting.

The kind of rapid binge drinking that can result from dares, games, or hazing can result in very high -- potentially lethal -- blood alcohol levels. Someone who has consumed a large amount of alcohol can die if left to "sleep it off" because they will continue to absorb the alcohol already consumed and the blood alcohol level may continue to increase. If there is a reason to suspect alcohol overdose, call 911.

I'm going to go against the grain here and admit I've always loved how Kristin dressed on the red carpet. Before she even was known to cavort with rockers, I saw the hipster edge in her. It's a little bit more sophisticated than the generic fucktardery you see out of every other Hollyweirdo who gets praised for their fashion equivalent of the JC Penny prom section. I don't follow celebrities or blogs like this normally so unless she's taken a MAJOR nosedive in the last two years in her wares, I'm on board with her clothes. She's one of my top 3 faves to look at for fashion, besides Cate Blanchett, who is my #1.

*Kirsten! Kirsten dresses cooler than the average fuckwitted celebrity. I've said my piece.
