Kirsten Dunst Just Wore the Pretty Color Trend That's All Over H&M and Nordstrom

There are so many ways to analyze the season's biggest trends. For instance, you can discuss silhouettes (Have you heard that bubble skirts are back?), texture, fabrics, hardware, hemlines, and more. For this story, I wanted to focus on one of my favorite ways to break things down: by color. After seeing Kirsten Dunst's newest outfit, I was suddenly inspired to add some butter yellow to my wardrobe this summer.

Photographed at the New York City premiere of Kinds of Kindness, Dunst wore an ethereal yellow gown by Erdem along with gold heels by Jimmy Choo. As my colleague reported on back in April, butter yellow was a hugely popular color trend on the S/S 24 runways. Bottega Veneta, for instance, showed a laser-cut dress in the sunshine hue, while Givenchy opted for a pastel yellow coat. As expected, the color trend trickled down into the affordable sector, too. H&M and Nordstrom, specifically, both have plenty of options if you want to test-drive the hue. Scroll down to see Kirsten Dunst's new outfit and shop butter-yellow pieces for yourself.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
