Glowing: Kirsten Dunst looked stunning in a coffee-coloured dress with gold details at the Mayfair premiere of Melancholia this evening
While the subject matter of her new film is dark to say the least, Kirsten Dunst looked radiant as she stepped out onto the red carpet for the premiere of her new apocalyptic drama, Melancholia.
Kirsten's beaming face made a stark contrast to the film's weighty themes, and she beamed as she greeted the crowds outside Mayfair's Curzon cinema.
The 29-year-old glowed in a coffee-coloured semi transparent dress with gold details.
Acclaim: Kirsten won a best actress award for her role at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year
Co-star: Actor John Hurt, who plays Kirsten's father in the film, was also present at the Curzon premiere

Written and Directed by Dancer in the Dark's Lars von Trier, Melancholia has already received a great deal of critical acclaim.
Kirsten won the best actress award at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year for her role as a bride whose difficult relationship with her sister is stretched to the limit as a planet called Melancholia is heading toward Earth.
Candid: Kirsten opened up on the red carpet about the depression she has suffered in the past
'I think that most human beings go through some sort of depression in their life. And if they don't, I think that's weird.'
She was also supportive of her director tonight, who came under fire when he told reporters at a Cannes press conference that he was 'a Nazi' and could understand Hitler.
'I would have done anything with Lars. I adore working with him. There's no one who's communicated emotion so simply and effectively to me than Lars. And he's funny and a joy to be around,' Dunst enthused.'
Proud: The star insisted that she had felt very comfortable while working on the difficult project due to the supportive atmosphere on set
