CelebrityKirsten Dunst Captivates for W Magazine

Kirsten Dunst is positively captivating in a recent photo shoot for W Magazine that embraces the styles of summer. We are loving her fresh faced look and tousled blonde locks, with red lipstick adding to the intrigue. Photographer Juergen Teller manages to create a casual and intimate vibe, making us feel like we’re just dropping in on some of Dunst’s summer fun. Our favorite part? A blingy bauble paired with a retro-style yellow swimsuit… adorable!Kirsten DunstDunst2Dunst3Dunst4

FashionWhat to Wear: Spring Weddings



Formal Weddings:

Formal weddings, otherwise known as black tie, are some of the most formal weddings you can attend. Most of the time they are set late in the day and into the evening, so be ready to get your glamour on! Though you can opt for a floor length gown, we suggest classing it up in a midi cocktail dress! We love our Black Swan Wells Midi Dress because of the clean lines (can you say slimming?) and the modern digi flower print! Pair with some strappy black heels, a statement necklace, and the perfect cat eye.

Garden Weddings:

Garden weddings usually lean towards semi-formal, so don’t go too casual. Choose a dress that reads slightly more formal, but go for lighter and brighter color and prints, and make sure that it’s shorter than the knee! We thought the Save the Last Dance Light Blue Dress would be the perfect fit for any garden wedding with its avant garde peplum that combines flirty fun and a splash of formality! Be sure to wear thicker heels or wedges so you don’t sink into the grass.

Beach Weddings:

Although beach weddings can be a formal affair, most of the time they are very casual. Maxis are a favorite among beach weddings, and we went with one of our favorites: the B. B. Dakota Elvya Maxi Dress. With all beach weddings you need to be aware of the elements, so stick with an elegant sandal or flat (no flip flops!), the perfect pair of sunnies, and be sure to bring a scarf, wrap, or light jacket, since it tends to get windy near the water.

FashionSpecial Occasion Sunglasses


As spring continues on into summer, odds are good you’ll be attending some special occasions in the great outdoors. Rather than silently squint into the sun, we recommend finding the perfect pair of sunglasses to complement your fancy attire.

If you’re going with classic black, like the Leave a Light on Black Dress, we recommend trying something clear or metallic to keep it chic while still adding some flair. The Quay Asha Gold Sunglasses accomplish this perfectly!

Going with a brighter hue? We paired the Colette White and Black Striped Sunglasses with the LULUS Exclusive Notch Landing Coral Pink Strapless Dress to find a balance between bright and subdued. The stripes on these sunglasses are a great addition to any frock that’s a solid color!

You can’t go wrong with neutral tones! The Feline Rust Brown Sunglasses have a great shape and a gorgeous shade of brown that will work for just about any dress. We love the way they look with the LULUS Exlcusive Be So Bow-ld Cutout Blue Dress!

Sunnies1Did we mention these oversized sunnies seen over at Atlantic Pacific? Some oversized black sunnies (tres chic!) and a gorgeous maxi are a winning combination for those spring and summer events that begin in the day, but last long into the night.
