The Woodstock star graced the cover of W Magazine’s new Directors Issue wearing a stunning sheer lace Rodarte dress that hugged her baby bump as she lounged on an ornate bed topped with a floral comforter and an intricate gold headboard.

Kirsten’s blonde hair was coiffed into a sleek bob with soft waves that oozed old Hollywood glamour. 

And while the renowned 38-year-old actress also wowed in a hot pink sleeveless Armani Privé dress and a gorgeous lavender Valentino number among other jaw-dropping looks, her cover dress was a fitting choice considering Kirsten’s love for - and close relationship with the Rodarte sisters, Laura and Kate Mulleavy, who co-founded the celeb-loved brand.

We loved the look (we also love just about anything the sisters design) and tracked down two similar versions for less. Rodarte's dresses often retail for thousands.

Kirsten also wore Rodarte when she announced she was pregnant with her son Ennis before she and her fiancé Jesse Plemons welcomed him in the spring of 2018.

The actress sang the designer duo’s praises back in 2019 when she presented them with the Designer of the Year Award at the 2019 InStyle Awards. “Laura and Kate’s creativity comes from something so personal and emotionally moving that their dresses almost feel like songs on your favorite album,” Kirsten said.

“They are pioneers of the fashion industry, sticking to their roots and always using their home state, family, and friends as a source of endless inspiration.” 

As for Kirsten’s shoot for W, that was inspired by another longtime collaborator - Sofia Coppola. According to the mag, the famed filmmaker channeled the “opulence of 1980s society hostesses” as inspiration for the shoot, captured by photographer Zoë Ghertner at a home in Beverly Hills. 

Kirsten joked about the setup of the shoot, saying, "Every shot was on the floor. I was like, 'I can't get up.' I felt like Urkel."

She also gushed over her longtime relationship with Sofia, saying, "It's just so beautiful to have that kind of friendship where you've seen each other have children.”

"There are few collaborations, to be honest, where it lasts, where someone knows you that long that's not your family." 

Sofia, 49, has two children, Romy, 14, and Cosima, 10.
