Kirsten Dunst looked stylish on the red carpet for the season 2 premiere of FX’s Fargo at the Arclight Theatre in Los Angeles, Calif., on Wednesday.

Kirsten Dunst’s ‘Fargo’ Premiere Look

Dunst changed up her style for the Fargo premiere, donning a two-piece look from the Proenza Schouler Resort 2016 collection. The sage green outfit included a sleeveless leather shirt tucked into a matching high-waisted skirt that featured a belt, pockets and a waterfall ruffle at the hem.

On her feet, Dunst rocked a pair of silver and black Salvatore Ferragamo sandals.

In Fargo, Dunst joins the cast as Minnesota small-town beautician Peggy who has big city dreams and a husband (Jesse Plemons) who is the local butcher.

Peggy is a funny lady, I liken her to a Scooby Doo character sometimes. And she’s a little delusional, but she’s so real and believes in what she believes in, so you root for Peggy, too,” Dunst told Indiewire. “I thought I’d get to kill more people, to be honest. I was a little disappointed with that.”


A large part of Fargo projects is the distinctive Minnesota accent. Fortunately for Dunst, she was well acquainted with the manner of speaking.

“I had done the accent before, for Drop Dead Gorgeous, which was way over the top for what we’re doing, but it’s not a hard accent for me to sink into,” Dunst revealed, adding, “My grandma, she passed away, but she was from Minnesota, and she comes from a farm, with a family of 10. So it’s like, half my family is from Minnesota. So it’s in me, kind of. …. I spent summers in Minnesota, and I’ve been out on the farm.”

In addition to Dunst and Plemons, Fargo‘s second season stars Patrick Wilson, Cristin Milioti, Ted Danson, Rachel Keller, Bokeem Woodbine and Jean Smart.

Fargo season 2 premieres on FX Monday, Oct. 12.
