Kirsten Dunst has been somewhat off our radar of late. Last time she made a big impression on us was in a kitsch music video created by artist Takashi Murakami at the Tate Modern's Pop exhibition wearing a bright pink wig and singing along to a Japanese pop song.
But the Marie Antoinette star has shot back into our consciousness with an appearance on the cover of American magazine V and totally blew us away with this stylish cover shoot.
Wearing a slinky nude Dolce & Gabbana bustier top trimmed with black lace, Kirsten has been given the look of a 30s screen siren with pencil-thin eyebrows, raspberry lips and her blonde locks swept off her face. Shot by Mario Testino, the cover image is a groomed world away from Kirsten's own quirky style.
