Kirsten Dunst Turns 32, Revels in Fashion

By: Kimberly Ripley - April 30, 2014

Kirsten Dunst is celebrating her 32nd birthday on Monday. In honor of her big day, E! took a look back at some of her best forays into the fashion world. Not only has Dunst heated up red carpets for several years now, she also rocks her individual style in some fashions the rest of us simply can’t pull off.

Kirsten is married to actor Garrett Hedlund, who looks pretty darn good himself. These two are a stunning couple when spotted out and about side by side.

“My favorite age is now,” Dunst said in a recent interview. “I love my friendships, and I know I have fun things to look forward to.”

Looking back on Kirsten Dunst’s many fashion photos over the years, one can easily see that her style choices are eclectic. From jeans and off-the-shelf t-shirts to little black dresses replete with sexy cutouts, she brightens up everything she wears with well-defined lips in pink or red. The rest of her makeup palette stays light and fresh, however. Her hair is typically worn down or in a simple up do. Kirsten never appears like she’s a high maintenance kind of girl.

Dunst doesn’t much care what people think either. She is happy to be her own best self, and never feels like she needs to conform to what Hollywood–or anyone else for that matter–thinks of her. She crossed that line into the offensive recently, however, with the following comment in Harper’s Bazaar UK.

“I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued. We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking – it’s a valuable thing my mum created. And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armour. I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work,” she said.

What’s your take on what the actress says about gender roles?

Regardless of what people think, the actress is still celebrating turning 32, and she is likely doing it in style. Hopefully her birthday is celebrated in the company of family members and dear friends, where the women cook and clean up after the event and the men sit around enjoying cocktails and smoking their cigars.

Oh–you don’t think Kirsten Dunst would like that?

    Mz. Ripley the Queen of back handed compliments. So everyone has to feel want the same things as you, so much for freedom of choice.

      That was an incredibly backhanded compliment, wasn’t it!?!

    I couldn’t agree more with Kristen. I am 42 years old, incredibly independent and take care of everything myself because I’m single, but when I fall in love again I want it to be with a man that will take care of my car and the yard and fix things when they’re broken and open the car door for me and take control of certain things. And if he wants to support me while I only work part-time (or not at all and spend my time volunteering) – as long as the house is clean and inside chores are done that will be just fine with me. As long as it’s MY choice, bring it on!

    There is a mistake in this article. Garrett Hedlund is her boyfriend, but last I knew they weren’t even engaged, much less married!
