When Kirsten Dunst appeared on the 2017 Oscars red carpet, she looked like she was still in character, playing the role of NASA supervisor Vivian Mitchell in Hidden Figures. As it turns out, that wasn’t entirely coincidental because Dunst picked a dress that had roots not too far from the time of the story, 1961. Dunst opted for a sleeveless black gown that was originally designed in 1952 by Christian Dior for the autumn-winter Haute Couture collection. Here, an exclusive look at how the dress was made.
