Hot Mess: Kirsten Dunst in The Virgin Suicides

Most people miss the most important message of this film:
die young, beautiful, and stylish.

Well, maybe not the most important, if you want to get all philosophical about it. But I firmly believe that my new obsession in life, the ever-so stylish Sofia Coppola, is also somewhat obsessed with style, to the extent that she would incorporate it as a major theme in most (if not all) of her films.

Case in point: The Virgin Suicides (1999). 

All the sisters in the film have quite conservative styles (obviously, because of their strict parents), except for Lux (Kirsten Dunst). She's a rebel. Sure, she wears the virginal dresses while her parents are around, but as soon as they're out of the picture, the 70s' tease comes out. It's genius.

This look is perfect for summer time craziness.
