Kristen Stewart In Chanel: Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week





One of the best look at Chanel Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture (F/W 2013-14) show the other day belonged to Kristen Stewart. Usually associated with Balenciaga, Kristen Stewart wore Chanel Resort 2014 blazer and shorts with various Chanel accessories that toughened up the look and made it very much her own. I like the clothes, the braided hair, and the makeup. I'd venture a guess that Kristen's sophisticated smoky eye was achieved using Chanel Stylo Eye Shadow sticks from Summer 2013: Jade Shore and Black Stream, perhaps with a touch of Blue Bay *.

So much better than Rihanna.

*These eye shadows are among my favorite makeup products and see a lot of use. The ease of creating a full eye look with a swipe and a smudge is priceless. The Stylo sticks are a limited edition but still available on Chanel website, so consider yourself enabled. Let's hope for more colors in upcoming Chanel collections.

  1. The difference between KStew and Rihanna is the difference between looking cool and looking trashy. I think Uncle Karl would approve of the edge KStew brings to fashion. Somehow she retains that bad girl vibe all the while looking insouciant and elegant.

  2. Completely agree that it's a great look. I have to admit though that I enjoyed Rihanna's look as well for some reason!

  3. I wasn't sure at first- maybe wishing the shorts were just a shade longer- but at second glance, yes, I think that she has hit on something "tough chic" that works for her. I love the placement of the bracelet on her right forearm.

  4. I agree. I love how she took Chanel pieces and made it her own. It seems to reflect her personality. It is chic how she wore diamond bracelets with the outfit. The makeup and hair give the look an even more cool feel.

  5. Better than Rihanna. Indeed.

  6. This is totally rude (sorry if you're a Kristen Stewart fan), but she always looks skanky (sorry, I can't think of a better word that isn't equally or more insulting) to me. No matter what she wears, her makeup, her hair, she always looks tired and annoyed and trashy. What a waste of good Chanel. Rhianna looked better (IMO)--at least she smiles.

  7. This outfit would have been perfect without the "Karl" gloves. It doesn't add tough chic, it completely unbalances the look.The bracelets would have been quite enough. The shoes are exquisite.

  8. I like that KS has taken a page from Uncle Karl with the gloves. It's fascinating to see how classic Chanel pieces work in a modern way on this young star. Both she and Karl have personalities and physiques that transform their looks. So does Rihanna, but I don't think the crisp, tailored look of Chanel is the best match for her, as Amalia commented on the Rihanna post. ~~nozknoz

  9. I'm afraid I'll have to agree with Bella - the gloves have got to go. I'll also agree with Iron Maiden - has her face permanently frozen into "annoyed / constipated" mode?
