Lately, we've learned not to underestimate a black dress. Just look at Kirsten Dunst on the Midnight Special red carpet at the Berlinale International Film Festival — her glittering Chanel Haute Couture gown is stunning, from its distressed chiffon spaghetti straps to its sheer train. We imagine that it felt completely blissful to slip into the beaded design. After all, Kirsten's train doesn't weigh her down, and the asymmetrical cut of her hem is such that she can show off her embellished Roger Vivier shoes.
This particular look, complete with glowing chandelier earrings, is feminine and almost flapper-like, and wasn't it Kirsten who left our jaws on the ground with that sexy Valentino number at the Golden Globes? The star is somewhat of a fashion chameleon, proving she can pull off a whole range of styles, and that, yes, black is not so boring. Read on for the proof.
