An Inside Look at Kirsten Dunst's Christian Dior Haute Couture Show Prep
At Couture Fashion Week in Paris, Christian Dior turned its Haute Couture runway into a real-life fairytale. And Kirsten Dunst sat first row at the fashion house’s secret garden set looking equally ethereal.
In-between running from show-to-show, the Hidden Figures star also hit up the week’s best parties including a Chopard soiree at the Theatre du Chatelet. While Dunst may make having that certain je ne sais quoi look effortless, her go-to makeup artist Sabrina Bedrani was by her side throughout the week to help perfect a classic French girl style.
Can you say chic? Scroll through for Bedrani’s exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how Dunst spent Paris Couture Fashion Week.
The Most Important Meal Of The Day
Fact: No trip to Paris is complete without a pastry—or two for breakfast.
Inside Sabrina Bedrani’s Kit for Kirsten Dunst’s Dior Show Look
The makeup artist prepped Dunst’s complexion with Dior’s Capture Totale Dreamskin 1 Minute Mask ($75; dior.com), followed by Dior’s Capture Total Dreamskin Advanced The Next Generation Iconic Perfect Skin Creator ($115; dior.com) for extra moisture. Next, she evened out Dunst’s skin with a combo of Dior Diorskin Forever in #10 ($50; dior.com) and Laura Mercier’s Secret Concealer in #2 ($27; sephora.com), and used Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze & Glow Face Sculpt & Highlight ($68; nordstrom.com) to sculpt her cheekbones.
To keep Dunst’s eyes on the bright side, Bedrani swept Dior Diorshow Mono Long-Wear Professional Mirror-Shine Eyeshadow in Mirror ($31; dior.com), a light champagne shade, all over her lids, and accentuated her eyes with the duo of Dior Diorshow Maximizer 3D Triple Volume Plumping Lash Primer ($30; dior.com) and Dior Diorshow Blackout Mascara in Black ($29; dior.com).
But First, Lipstick
Before Dunst headed out to the show, Bedrani applied a classic red lip to brighten her whole look. The pro prepped the actress’s lips by scrubbing with Dior Lip Sugar Scrub ($33; dior.com) and KNC Beauty’s Lip Mask ($5; urbanoutfitters.com). She finished by swiping on Dior Rouge Gradient 755 ($31; dior.com).

Sabrina Bedrani’s Arsenal for Kirsten’s Chopard Party Look
The pro added a little Laura Mercier Blush in Rose Blossom to create a pretty flush on Dunst’s cheeks. To bring out the actress’s eyes, Bedrani turned to the light brown/bronze shade in Dior’s 5 Couleurs Couture Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette in Cuir Canage ($62; dior.com) and blended it upwards and outwards to accentuate her eye. Bedrani lined Dunst’s lash line with Dior Diorshow Khôl in Smoky Black ($32; dior.com) and smudged it, and finished with two coats of Dior Diorshow Blackout Mascara in Black ($29; dior.com).
She kept Dunst’s look fresh with a coat of Dior Rouge Gradient 755 ($31; dior.com) on her lips after prepping them with a lip mask.
