Kirsten Dunst Announces Pregnancy With Rodarte Photoshoot


Unlike in previous decades, when celebrities endeavored to hide a pregnancy, today’s stars are much more open about their baby bumps. In fact, many celebs take it a step further and make their pregnancy announcement a huge deal. Some of them go big. We all remember where we were and what we were doing when Beyonce dropped this photo:

And some prefer an understated approach, like Kirsten Dunst did by showing off her baby bump in a fashion shoot for the brand Rodarte. And this wasn’t just a fashionable way for Dunst to tell the world she’s expecting. Dunst had been the subject of pregnancy rumors for months, which the declined to address, and this move puts the speculation to rest in one fell swoop.

Dunst’s announcement was photographed by Autumn de Wilde, and the outfits were styled by Ashley Furnival and Shirley Kurata. The above dress, which is called “Look 6,” is a red and silver-dotted tulle dress, layered over a pink, red, and white floral gown. Dunst also modeled Look 19, a brown and tan cape coat, with the biggest bow you have ever seen outside a Lexus commercial:

The Spiderman and Fargo season 2 star says her decision to get pregnant comes after many years of prioritizing her work. “I’m at a stage in my life where I’m like, ‘I’ve been working since I was 3. It’s time to have babies and chill,'” Dunst told Marie Claire UK.  “I wasn’t one of those ‘I need a baby!’ people until my goddaughter was born. I love her so much. That love is just like…You can’t experience that unless you have a kid. I put her to bed last night and she woke up this morning and said to her mom, ‘Where’s Kiki?’ I just love that love. That’s what I want.”

Dunst’s is having the baby with her fiance Jesse Plemons, known for his roles in Friday Night Lights, Breaking Bad, and Fargo season 2, which is where he and Dunst met. He’s also known for inspiring people to say, “Wait, THAT’S who Kirsten Dunst is dating?!”

Furnival and Kurata are also collaborating with Dunst on the dress for her upcoming wedding.

In the wake of the photoshoot, Dunst and Plemons haven’t announced a due date, but if this is any indication, it’ll probably be unexpected, subtle, and very fashionable. We can’t wait!
