So a couple of days ago we pissed off an army of Kristen Stewart fan girls on twitter because we didn’t like her spread for GQ and didn’t think the retro glam looks they styled her in really suited her looks or her personality. We will never, no matter how long we do this fabulous job, ever understand when people get offended on behalf of celebrities. Kristen Stewart didn’t shed one tear over our comments if she even heard them at all and if she did, well… she can cry herself to sleep on a pile of fur-lined bags of money, as far as we’re concerned. But we’re pretty sure she doesn’t give a shit what we think.
Anyway. We seem to have gone off on a tangent. Where we were? Oh! We also said at the time:
“If we were styling her for a shoot, we’d be much more inclined to go the jeans, natural makeup, and blown out hair look with her, but everyone seems to want to dress her up like an old Hollywood star. Don’t get us wrong; she looks very pretty in all of these shots. She just doesn’t look like herself.”
Kristen Stewart featured in the November 2011 issue of Glamour magazine photographed by Matthias Vriens-McGrath and styled by Anne Christensen. Top, Bottega Veneta. Jeans, Current Elliott. White gold and diamond necklaces, Martin Katz and Jordan Alexander at Fragments.
T Lo’s point; it is made.
Come on, she looks amazing here and she doesn’t look nearly as stiff or uncomfortable as she did when they lacquered her up in Bettie Page drag.
Dress, Stella McCartney. White gold and diamond bracelet, DeBeers. Boots, Ash.
T-shirt, Sosume. Shorts, Peter Som. Shoes, Alexander Wang.
It’s slightly more glamorous and girly on the inside, but they wisely mitigated it by pairing the dress with some boots and the lace shorts and heels with a t-shirt. This is how you style a girl like her. She should always have her makeup done this way.
