Kirsten Dunst V Magazine April 2010

Kirsten Dunst taps into some old-fashioned Hollywood glamour in a 1930s-inspired photoshoot for V Magazine. Decked out in garb designed by Givenchy, Kirsten channels her inner Greta Garbo while being snapped by famed fashion photographer Mario Testino. In this issue, Dunst discusses her unique friendships with both The Mulleavy Sssters of fashion house Rodarte and Japanese pop artist Takashi Murakami as well as her upcoming long-awaited film All Good Things, which she describes as the best work she has done to date.

Directed by Andrew Jarecki, the film will star Kirsten Dunst star alongside Ryan Gosling. Set in the 1980s, story centers on the scion of a New York real estate dynasty (Gosling) who falls for a beautiful girl from the wrong side of the tracks (Dunst), but the fairy tale ends when the girl disappears and people close to the case end up dead.

“‘I know I’ll be seen in a very different light. This role is the most I can show of myself and I think it’s the best work I’ve ever done, for sure,” Dunst said, speaking about her role in the film. ‘I’m ambitious. I want to do great work and work with great directors and do great movies and produce great films. I have criteria for myself that are probably too hard to ever meet, but I’m going to try. I think people who say they’re not ambitious and have gotten to a place of success are lying.”
