“If you expect nothing from somebody, you are never disappointed”.

If you haven’t heard of this quote, you sure will in the movie called ‘The Bell Jar’, that is believed to get released in the middle of 2017. In the lead role, we will be looking upon the stylish Dakota Fanning as Esther Greenwood, where Kirsten Dunst has co-written the script with Nellie Kim.

 ‘The Bell Jar’, a novel by Sylvia Plath, is a truthful, appalling and deeply expressive drama about a woman tumbling into the grip of insanity. The book falls under ‘American haunting Classic’ genre. In the movie, Dakota Fanning will be playing the role of Esther Greenwood, who is extremely talented and successful but slowly falling apart as she struggles with mental illness. The movie is off to get directed by Kirsten Dunst, who we know as ‘Merry Jane Watson’ from ‘Spiderman’ sequel.

Apart from short films, Kirsten Dunst never directed any mainstream movies before and it seems like this one is gonna be her first director’s credit. We might have not seen her off the screen with screenwriting and direction stuffs, but this one looks like she is really up with something that would hit the box office really hard. Well, let us all see.

Fashionable Dakota Fanning

If we speak of her style, the only word that can match up with it is ‘Flawless’. Her dressing sense has made most of the men go crazy for her. In an interview, she states that she would go for classy looks rather than look hot. She also confirms that when she gets anything for her to wear, the outfit needs to look elegant even after years and years when she looks at the photographs.

She says that she is more into getting it even if it takes hours of shop but not regret it later, which kinda make sense. Most of what she wears is Jeans and T-shirts along with boots with an outer or coat to make her look incredibly classy. To cover her eyes, she mostly uses Wayfarer and round sunglasses.
