“THE ART OF BEING KIRSTEN DUNST” Hollywood’s bored and beautiful blonde has become an icon for a generation, but this year it’s all about reinvention. Art muse, rising director, even serious dramatic actress—you can be anything when you’re Kirsten Dunst. Inside V MAGAZINE (issue #64) Dunst discusses her unique friendships with both the Mulleavy sisters of Rodarte and Japanese pop artist Takashi Murakami as well as her upcoming long-awaited film All Good Things. V64 hit newsstands today.
ELLE was the first UK magazine to put Chloë Sevigny on its cover in March 2008. Two years later, fresh from her Golden Globe win, we’ve welcomed her back. And the ‘coolest girl in the world’ was everything we hoped she would be – fun, quirky and sporting a laugh that rattled the wine glasses on the table. From her break out role in Kids to her 1999 Oscar nomination for Boys Don’t Cry to her eccentric, could-never-recreate-if-you-tried style, Sevigny has always refused to play by the Hollywood rules. And we love her all the more for it. Now 35 (yes, really) and single, she tells ELLE what it’s like to be the coolest kid not in the in-crowd.
Tom Ford womenswear looks closer to becoming a reality this morning as rumours intensify that the designer is building a design team - and has begun recruiting accessories specialists, WWD reports - in preparation for the debut collection. The designer confirmed last year that it was a matter of "when" not "if" he would launch a women's line.
"Financing is extremely expensive right now, so if we find financing in the right situation we'll be able to start [a women's collection] soon. If we don't, we may have to wait a while," the former Gucci and YSL helmer said in October 2009. "You know it will take me 18 months when I start, because [I have] to hire the team, find the factories, put everything together and then get the stores ready so there's a place for these clothes."
It seems, six months on, that those plans are now finally underway.
