In between the show hopping, trend watching and report writing this LFW, Grazia Daily always has time for some schleb schmoozing (just call it dedication to the fashwan cause). And that’s exactly what we were doing last night at the Mulberry mega-bash – one of the swankiest, and starriest, moments of the week. From the hustle and bustle of Bond Street, we stepped into a little patch of countryside idyll inside Claridge’s Hotel Ballroom, complete with toadstools, bird’s nests and hedgerows. And who should we spot amongst the foliage but Kirsten Dunst!

Kirsten has reappeared on our radar recently – starring in the Band of Outsiders campaign, sitting on the FROWs and bagging the Bulgari campaign – so you can understand our excitement when we found ourselves chatting to the Hollywood hipster over a bottle of organic cider. ‘I watched the Mulberry show this morning and thought everything was beautiful,’ she told us. So if Mulberry made The Kirsten bag, what would it look like? ‘It would be a small, across-the-body bag in navy blue. Or hot pink!’ she said. Emma Hill, over to you…

Indeed, Kiki looked every inch the Hollywood hipster wearing the Brit brand’s pleated Peggy dress from the Pre Fall collection, topped off with a ballerina bun and sultry smoky eyes. So can we expect to see the adorable 28-year-old bringing her A-list dazzle to more of London’s FROWs? ‘Sadly no, I’m flying to Milan tomorrow for Bulgari,’ she revealed, although not to shoot the campaign, because, she tells us, that’s already done and dusted. ‘And then I’m driving through Europe with my boyfriend’, who we can confirm is the very dishy Jason Boesel, aka: the drummer for indie rock band Rilo Kiley.

But before she left the woodland wonderland, and our fair city, Grazia Daily couldn’t resist asking Kirsten if she’s a Grazia fan. ‘Of course! I love Grazia!’ she trilled as we stifled our squeals of delight. ‘I was looking at Grazia Daily today actually where you wrote Leith Clark [who dresses her] is a superstylist!’ Aw, an A-list actress, a supercute style icon and a Grazia Daily reader? That Kiki D is too good to be true. So much so that this morning, we’re considering changing the name of our beloved site to Grazia Dunstly in honour of our new bestie. Stay tuned…
