Kirsten Dunst doesn't need style tips

Kirsten Dunst has dubbed Sofia Coppola one of the chicest women she's met.

The 33-year-old actress always rocks a sleek and polished look on the red carpet, whether it's a floor-length gown or cute two-piece ensemble.

Rather than relying on the advice of others on what to wear, Kirsten has used her eye for style carefully.

"I don’t think I’ve ever gotten advice. It’s more that I had really good influences. When I was 16, I was working with Sofia Coppola, who is one of the chicest women I’ve ever met," she told Gotham magazine. "And my mom was always into fashion. She lived in Germany for ten years and had a lot of old Kenzo in her closet."

Kirsten was interviewed for the publication by fellow star Julianne Moore, 54, who was intrigued by the blonde beauty's choice of designers. Particularly fashion house Rodarte, with Kirsten the first major celebrity to wear the label.

"I have worked with these stylists, Nina and Clare Hallworth, since I was very young, and they introduced me to Rodarte’s clothes. Then I met [designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy] and we became fast friends. Now we’re making a movie together, and we start in a week," Kirsten smiled.

However she couldn't reveal what the film was about, apologising to Julianne for keeping details under wraps.

One of Kirsten's most elegant projects is arguably Marie Antoinette, in which she donned lavish dresses and headpieces. Looking so extravagant came at a price though.

"We had a genius, legendary costume designer, Milena Canonero. She always brought in accessories, and I was like, 'Oh, let’s do a red ribbon around my waist like I was cut in half, to foreshadow the beheading.' She liked that collaboration, but it was her fabrics, her designs. They were fabulous. It wasn’t very comfortable, but very impressive. Oh my god, corsets are the worst!" Kirsten recalled.
