Kirsten Dunst, who was once America’s favorite pre-teen vampire, turns 30 today. As we prepare watch Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Foy eclipse her breakthrough bloodsucking performance in 1994′s Interview With a Vampire, and Emma Stone takes over the role of Spider-Man’s main squeeze, Dunst has moved on to more grown-up roles. She wowed critics with her performance in Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia last year. This year, we’ll see her as a reluctant bridesmaid in the indie comedy Bachelorette and mix it up with the Beat poets as Camille in On the Road (opposite Stewart and Garrett Hedlund). And now she’s re-teamed with her Virgin Suicides and Marie Antoinette director Sofia Coppola for The Bling Ring (currently known as “that movie in which Emma Watson has a tramp stamp“).
With her adorable dimples, Kirsten probably could have picked a career as a rom-com staple — but she’s always balanced her cuteness with a bit of a dark edge, and a number of smoldering looks. That’s why we’re taking this moment to wish her a happy birthday with a collection of her 30 hottest looks.
