Kirsten Dunst sticks to wardrobe staples

Kirsten Dunst doesn't mind wearing the same outfit two days in a row and lives in the same three pairs of jeans.

The American actress looks flawless on the red carpet, but when it comes to everyday errands, fashion is the furthest thing from her mind.

Despite the fact she's often snapped by paparazzi, her attitude to style is laid back.

“Sometimes when I leave the house I’ll think, ‘Wait – what if you get photographed? You’re going to be bummed,’” Kirsten laughed to The Edit.

“But I just can’t be bothered to pick out an outfit. Look [points to her denim shirt and navy shorts]: I wore the exact same thing yesterday, because if it worked yesterday, it will work today, right?”

When she does make the effort, her personal style can change from event to event.

She's a big fan of A.P.C. and Isabel Marant, and also loves the designs Kate Moss creates for Topshop. Kirsten recently snapped up a fringed suede jacket by Kate, but has only worn it once so far.

"Because I don’t want to dress like I’m in a rock band and it’s a delicate balance," she laughed.

For her shoot with The Edit, Kirsten rocks a bohemian look, with long skirts, shrugs and ruffles all making an appearance.

At 32, Kirsten likes to think back to the clothes she wore during her 20s, and even confesses her dress sense used to be better.

“I’ve got a little bit more of a tummy now, so although I own about 20 pairs of jeans, I’ll wear the same three for a year because the rest are from when I was skinnier. I guess if I wasn’t comfortable and in a relationship I’d be thinner," she revealed.

"When you’re with someone, you eat so much more and you chill out a bit – but I don’t criticise myself more than is healthy, because there’s such a lot of that, isn’t there? Whether it’s girls among themselves or gossip magazines, it’s all about women tearing apart other women. I don’t get why that’s so prevalent right now.”
