Although I tend to err on the more conservative side of fashion myself, I truly appreciate it when others take risks. Case in point: Kirsten Dunst in a provocative yet child-like Miu Miu Spring 2010 Ready-to-Wear frock. I cannot think of anyone better to pull off such a look than the former Miu Miu campaign model. She is quirky, eccentric, bold, and embodies the contradictive sexy-yet-innocent motif that Miuccia Prada's spring collection carried (note the red swallow print juxtaposed with sexy ladies along the torso).
While Kirsten styles the dress with subtle black accessories allowing it to retain focus, I probably would have worn Mary Jane pumps to exaggerate the school girl influence this look denotes or even carried a lunch box inspired purse. Kirsten, however, puts a lot less into her look than most girls would with a $2,400 dress. After all effortless chic is Kirsten's niche in the celebrity fashion world and it appears to work well for her.
Below are some other looks from the collection that I wouldn't mind walking the streets of New York in. You can also view a video of the full collection here.
