Kirsten Dunst In Rodarte – 2011 Cannes Film Festival “Melancholia” Premiere

It looks like Kirsten Dunst heard your pleas, because she opted for Rodarte tonight when she arrived on the red carpet for the “Melancholia” Premiere during the 2011 Cannes Film Festival this evening.

This marks a Cannes debut for Rodarte.

Kiki’s polka dot haltered mermaid Fall 2011 dress with a forest green wool bodice was a beautiful choice for an evening premiere.

I love the Swarovski crystal embellished zipper down the side of the dress, which is a beautiful way to disguise a zipper unlike some of the unsightly exposed zippers we usually see.

The emerald cuff was a perfect touch.

Love the smoky eyes.

Saoirse Ronan In Rodarte – 2011 Met Gala

Saoirse Ronan gave us something different to the gowns and mermaid hemlines at the 2011 Met Gala.

She opted to wear a Rodarte Fall 2011 look.

The red crepe collared jacket which drapes at the back was teamed with a red embroidered sequin skirt.

I wish she’d found better shoes to complement her look.

These silver Tabitha Simmons ‘Dixie’ heels aren’t working for me.

Keira Knightley In Rodarte – 2011 Jameson Empire Awards

Keira Knightley attended the 2011 Jameson Empire Awards in London tonight, where she was honored with the “Empire Hero Award.”

We’ve known Keira so long, that we know that she only has two “go-to” designers for big events.

Chanel and Rodarte.

On this occasion she opted for a Rodarte Spring 2011 look.

Her nude embellished dress with cold shoulders, ruffled trims and a Peter Pan collar was styled with black pumps.

Thankfully I’m so interested in the many features of her dress, that I can almost pretend that the black pumps are not really happening.

Is this a BDOTW contender for you?

Natalie Portman In Rodarte – 2011 Oscars

Most Consistent Award
Natalie Portman arrived very late on the red carpet tonight at the 2011 Oscars.

She was the last ones to arrive, no doubt to avoid any Dior/Galliano related questions.

The radiant mother-to-be wore a custom Rodarte gown.

Her purple off-the-shoulder gown is lightly embellished on the bodice which matches her dazzling fringed earrings.

The matchy matchy-ness of her look continues to her Jimmy Choo ‘Macy’ satin sandals.

We had high hopes for Natalie this awards season given the extra pressures of dressing her baby bump.

She surpassed my expectations, how about yours?

Kirsten Dunst In Rodarte – Art Of Elysium “Heaven” Gala

Kirsten Dunst also opted for something bold on the red carpet for the Art Of Elysium “Heaven” Gala in LA last night.

Just when I was starting to tire of Kirsten’s style she hits the red carpet wearing a Rodarte ‘Ming’ dress from the Spring 2011 collection.

The double patterned Rodarte wrap dress was unfortunately let down by some snooze-worthy maroon pumps.

Kirsten also added a Van Cleef & Arpels 1921 art deco diamond and sapphire bracelet to complement her dress.
