In June 2016, Star Trek: The Next Generation actress Kirsten Dunst sparkled on the red carpet at the 2016 CFDA Fashion Awards held at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.

23 years earlier, she made a guest appearance as young alien Hedril in the seventh season of Star Trek: The Next Generation at the age of 11, a year before her movie breakthrough role in the 1994 American gothic horror vampire film Interview with the Vampire.

In the episode, split-screen techniques and blue screens were employed to create the illusion of interaction between the characters and a trained but potentially dangerous wolf.

To ensure safety, Kirsten Dunst’s character petted a stand-in rather than the actual animal, with the wolf’s image added in post-production. In November 2016, she shared a charming throwback photo from her “Star Trek” days.

On the CFDA Fashion Awards 2016 red carpet, the then-34-year-old The Virgin Suicides actress wore a metallic moss and sheer lace sheath dress from Rodarte’s Fall 2016 collection.

The dress perfectly showcased her slender figure. The fun — yet elegant — dress featured bead and sequin embellishments in a wave pattern.

We think Kirsten was hard to ignore in it. The frock also boasted lace ruffles, side pleats, and a thigh-high split that offered a glimpse of her flawless legs.

Kirsten styled her blonde locks into old Hollywood curls, tucking one side behind her ear and showing off her brightly-colored orchid earring.

She rounded out her look with smoky eye makeup and pink lipstick.

The Jumanji star finished off her ensemble with a pair of pumps from Rodarte’s Fall 2016 collection.

They also feature white leather trims, peep toes, buckled ankle straps, and about 4.5-inch cone-shaped heels.
