IN or OUT: Kristen Stewart in Stella McCartney

Posted on May 30, 2012

Sassy’s not normally within K Stew’s wheelhouse, nor is it a word we word normally associate with her, but DAMN…

Kristen Stewart attends screening of “Snow White and the Huntsman” in Los Angeles in head-to-toe Stella McCartney.

… that is SASSY. We don’t love it unequivocally, though. Never did like the shape of those pumps. They look awkward to us. And the whole look is just a bit to self-consciously “business on the top, party on the bottom.” Some love the buttoned up collar and some don’t. Some can work it and some can’t. We just can’t shake the feeling she’d look better is she undid a button or two on the blouse. It’s a cute look – and definitely an IN for us – but we’re not entirely in love with it.

      • fungstyle

        truth! she should rock these types of separates looks more often, she looks so much more comfortable and happy than she ever does in a gown. 

    • Beardslee

      Kristen Stewart and Stella McCartney are an automatic double whammy of NO.

      I think she looks cute – IN

      I usually loathe her but this is qute. I’ll do her a solid. IN.

      • Kolo_Ol

        same here.  I am inclined to give her an in even though I cannot stand her

      • http://profiles.google.com/anplica Anplica Fiore

        Agreed – this is the best I’ve seen her, even though I hate the shoes.  

        • snarkmeister

          Agreed, best I’ve ever seen her look.  Apparently she looks pretty damn fab in those late-80s/early-90s “mod” looks we wore back in high school.  (I think the youngsters call it “goth” now.)  Apparently she was made for the vampire genre…just not the sparkly vampire genre.  It’s like she stepped out of an Anne Rice book, but slightly updated for a modern twist.

      • http://profiles.google.com/anplica Anplica Fiore

        Agreed – this is the best I’ve seen her, even though I hate the shoes.  

    • http://twitter.com/grooxcore Marie Ee

      I also find the fact that she actually got her hair and makeup done quite exciting.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/63F4DF4VDHSF2LPYOSWO5ZHAGU AdrienneD

        Agreed.  It seems like her hair has been better in the past few photos.  Maybe the constant comments that she looks like a drowned rat got to her.  

        • j_anson

          She is… what… early twenties? Maybe she’s just hit the end of that particular phase of self-presentation. Thank god if so.

    • http://twitter.com/msjwatt J.Watt

      In for a change. Really in.

    • http://twitter.com/younglibrarian Katie Dunneback

      I’m not a fan of KStew, but this is an IN for me without question. She looks as if she’s actually comfortable in her body and the style.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        She looks more at ease in this then in the more formal looks.  It’s not necessarily a style home run, but it’s close.

    • http://twitter.com/dixielou8 Ashley

      I’m not sold either TLo, hmm…

    • http://profiles.google.com/rosatcollege Ros Clarke

      OUT. I’m afraid she’s always going to be out for me until she learns to be a bit less awkward in whatever she’s wearing.

    • http://theargiehome.blogspot.com/ Gus Casals

      It’s IN! She looks age appropriate, cute and confortable, yet glam enough for an event. 

    • http://twitter.com/Menshevixen Diana

      Awwww. IN!

    • http://twitter.com/elizabethbake Elizabeth

      Out. The shoes are hiddy and she’s too buttoned up. If only she’d smile.

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

         But she DID!  Check out pic# 3!  Smiling KStew!

        • lovelyivy

           Seriously- she should be careful with that. Might pull a muscle…

          • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

            Really. I’m just thrilled to see it happen. She has a lovely smile, one wonders why it is so rarely seen.

        • http://twitter.com/elizabethbake Elizabeth

           A smile or an accidental opening of the jaw bone?

          • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

    • In_Stitches

      I can’t help but shake the feeling that she’s a bow-tie away from Zatanna territory, but that’s pretty fabulous, no?  IN. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Lucía-Gavello/1253586868 Lucía Gavello

      Is it me or is she coming to terms with dressing herself (or having stylists do)? It’s not perfect but she’s making it work and that’s miles from her “dresses with converse” days. She found a way to keep it a bit rock n’ roll without ruining it.

    • http://twitter.com/PlanetSandisan Sandisan

      IN.  With the caveat that I think a more colorful shoe would have been killa.

    • MarissaLG

      OUT. I don’t like what that jacket is doing to her figure, and those shoes are blehh.

      • mountainFashionista

         Yep, even though her legs look a mile long in the skirt (which I actually love), the overall effect is stumpy. I blame the jacket.  Out.

        • Spicytomato1

          I blame the jacket, too, too boxy. But the skirt and top are cute, combined with stunning hair and makeup. I gotta go with IN.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=37711231 Trishy Wishy

      Seriously, would it kill a girl to not looked stoned and smile?!

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/ZFKRECRF5BOBWB4RXAJGI4D6KA mmc

        I was born with that face!  If I’m not grinning, I look pissed off.  

        Color me self-conscious about the K Stewart comments!

        • http://www.celestiae.net Isy

           Me too. These, “god she needs to smile” give me a special irritation. My neutral face apparently looks like I’m about to cut a bitch and only people who know me know I’m not pissed off. Everyone else? “Cheer up! It’s not that bad!” Which only serves to make me pissed for real.

          • j_anson

            I feel that, because I’m the same way, although I think the TLo dictum on this is that people who don’t always look camera-friendly but have lives that put them on the red carpet a lot need to find a camera-friendly face and lock it in. Not that she’s, like, a BAD PERSON if she doesn’t, but the inevitable result is going to be that people think she’s being bitchy. I mean, she acts for a living, so picking an occasion-appropriate face and using it should be within her skill set…

            However, if you haven’t run across the interview in which Jeremy Renner talks about the same problem, you should google “Jeremy Renner” and “resting face”.

            • http://www.celestiae.net Isy

               Yep. Thing is, guys don’t get bothered for that shit in general. Someone he knows might poke fun at it, but I can almost guarantee he isn’t assaulted online or accosted by strangers in the street telling him to cheer up. My boyfriend has the same issue as we do… at worst, the bartender might make his drink stronger than normal and make a passing comment about it, but never some random a-hole telling him to change the configuration of muscles in his face.

              That said, Mr Renner’s resting face is pretty damn hilarious. Thank you for that!

          • NC_Meg

            Same here. My neutral face is very depressed looking. I’m not depressed, I’m just hanging out, ok?

          • Melissa Brogan

             I’m assuming you’re not a celeb poledancing for your latest flick. That’s the difference. If someone paid you big bucks to smile pretty for your new movie, you should smile pretty. If not, feel free to do whatever you like with your expression.

            • http://www.celestiae.net Isy

              No, it’s not the difference. I see lots of smiling in this post, and in pretty much every post, she just doesn’t look “happy enough” for some people to justify her millions, never mind that she spent months working on the movie. When she’s not smiling, she looks pissed. When she is smiling, it’s still somehow read as pissed. People need to get over it. I rarely see Johnny Depp crack a grin onthe RC, yet none of his posts are riddled with the types of comments this girl gets. Women are supposed to look happy. Men can look however they look without comment.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      I’m goin’ with IN.  She looks smartly put together, comfortable, and stylishly sexy.  My only issue is the sleeve length.  I know its deliberate, but I hate sleeves that partially cover the hands. It makes using your hands for anything whatever rather awkward.

      • raininmai

         She doesn’t really need her hands.  She has “people” for that.

    • suzq

      In.  Finally, a Stella McCartney garment I can abide.

    • http://twitter.com/shinobi42 Shinobi

      I wish the jacket were shorter, and the blouse fit better around the waist.  I love the skirt, but you can’t see it.  OUT

    • BazoDee

      OUT -the individual pieces are better than the sum. Some jewelry would have helped. I don’t like the line of the jacket with the line of the skirt. It doesn’t seem seasonally appropriate. Her make-up looks lovely though. 

      • kimmeister

        This, exactly.  I am coveting that jacket though.

        • BazoDee

          You take the jacket – I want the skirt! 

    • phrenk

      IN, I love it!  I could do with different shoes, but otherwise I have no complaints.

    • annie_wonder

      Out – that is one bizarro outfit which requires a whole lot of ‘tude to pull off, of which she is sorely lacking. And those shoes are turning my stomach – they look like rubber heels from a distance. Shudder.

      On the plus side, her make-up is lovely and that skirt would be super cute with something else.

    • StrandedFashionista

      It’s not really working for me. I can see where she was going with it… but it fell apart in the details. OUT for me. 

    • regina arthur

      In!  Very cute

    • RzYoung

      IN I really like this look on her, it suits her.

      • girliecue

        Ditto.

    • Melissa Brogan

      IN… in all but the one pic of almost-kinda-sorta smiling she’s still looking too pissed off and she’s still slouchy, but her outfit is pretty cute and she’s making it mostly work for her.

    • http://twitter.com/siao siao

      IN. It’d definitely look better with some buttons undone (maybe her normal cleavage-licious neckline) but it’s cute, and props for trying something different.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Francesca-Lagmay/7609751 Francesca Lagmay

      Whatevs. Like all the elements, but together, yawn. OUT

    • reddhouston

      In..I like it and think it’s “sassy” too.

    • Reneesance

      An IN!  She looks cute and happy with her outfit.  Only quibble is maybe not a double breasted jacket for a look like this.  Something a little more nipped in at the waist prehaps? 

    • http://twitter.com/delysia_lafosse Delysia LaFosse

      IN. She looks a million times more comfortable in this than in the Reem Acra gown from the Whiteboard yesterday. Very cute and very KStew.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=558631967 Ivona Foster

      Love the shirt as is but a more killer jacket was needed… but I’ll go with In cause she finally seems to be finding what works for her, not a scowl in sight

    • butterflysunita

      IN.  Has she gotten a new stylist?  And a new makeup artist?  And bought a hairbrush?  Whatever she’s done, she looks so much better in these last couple of posts.  

    • YAELS

      IN! Hate the hair (those two pieces taken down from the updo gross me out) but the outfit is CHIC and she actually looks somewhat at ease. Usually she looks like someone forced her into her outfit and you can almost visualize the disgust with which she gets home, casts off her thousand dollar dress, and changes into sweats. Or maybe that’s just how her face always looks?

    • Lizzyisi

      In.

    • Judy_S

      IN. She looks happy and healthy. For some reason I don’t hate those shoes.

    • RebeccaKW

      I rarely have anything nice to say about her clothing.  But.  It’s good to see the hair washed and fixed.  She looks as though she’s had a nap and is in fresh makeup.  I kind of like the look…I do hate the shoes.  I don’t mind the buttoned up collar on her.  I’m not sure I like that the jacket reaches right to the flare of the skirt…I feel it should hit higher on her waist.  But no side boob, she looks comfortable and clean and rested.  So, In.

    • siriuslover

      Too much Vampire Lestat. Whatevs.. out (though I grudgingly admit she looks cute)

    • CatherineRhodes

      OUT

    • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

      It’s better than most Stella designs, and KStew looks better than she normally does even if she cannot pose for her life. IN

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/C5T2QPOAWOBDRHFL2MFAV7KQCY Tracy

      IN.  Shoes were a lazy choice but everything else is so age-appropriately Rebellious Junior Equestrienne that I have to give it a yes.

    • LIz Keeney

      I like the idea of it (and I actually like her hair and makeup for once), but as always with this one, I hate the execution. 

    • estella_nyc

      OUT – there’s something off about the proportions up top, and I hate the buttoned up collar.  I do appreciate the hair and the red nails, though.

    • Judy_J

      I give her an IN for her smile alone.  She always looks like she just ate a persimmon or smelled something bad.  The smile is a nice and welcome change of pace for her.  I like that jacket, hate the shoes.

    • http://remedialstitcher.blogspot.com/ Sara Leigh Merrey

      The close-up of the shoes just accentuates the scrawniness of those legs. Very Minnie Mouse. Otherwise I like the look.

    • kelsita421

      Don’t love, but IN.

    • calimon

      OUT. Top half and bottom half are too distinctly conflicting personalities. From the waist down she looks like sassy highschool rebel,  waist up–like strict principle who is going to have to discipline her other half.

      The shoes look like small rowboats, but still IN.

    • YayaGurl

      She is a scroll up fug for me.  I see a cute outfit, then I get to her farbissina punim and I’m like “no.”

    • understateddiva

      In, though I’m not convinced she’s not about to rip off the jacket and do a strip tease to “Man, I feel like a woman.”

    • UrsNY

      IN. I salute her for being under 30 and managing to NOT dress like some twee county fair hostess.

    • mjude

      IN

    • unbornfawn

      IN, the OUTFIT is adorable, she’s still a vapid twit.

    • Beth G

      Out.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      The texture of the skirt is really cool – I think I’d prefer to see her in the full outfit instead of the white shirt and jacket – but it’s definitely Kristin’s style and she looks good in it.  The shoes are random… don’t love.

    • Lina_bee

      IN.  Not perfect, but striking and kind of fun! Also, it’s a Stella I don’t unequivocally hate — possibly because they pulled together separates that weren’t all shown together.

    • ccm800

      In – School girl -last day. 

    • http://twitter.com/Lily1129 Lily

      IN. She has the ability to rock a bit of androgyny/men’s tailoring, but pairing it with a sassy skirt SO WORKS on her. Plus her makeup is flawless and I like the bit messy hair with it. Good job. 

    • DinaSews

      IN.  It’s not great but her hair is clean and styled and her makeup looks good too which pushes it over for me.

    • colleenjanel

      Too stuffy up top for me. Lose the jacket, chop the sleeves off the blouse, and add some long necklaces.

    • CC06

      She looks put together and comfortable in her own skin for a change.  IN, undoubtedly.

    • muzan-e

      High necklines and tailored coats are amazing on her. The hair is perfection.  This is sleek and sharp and I will be nursing my girl-crush all. day. long.  *g*

      Really soft things don’t suit her well, so I think this really works since there’s an edginess to it. IN.

         I dunno.  I know she at least used to wear a lot of Chuck Taylors from Converse and these seem like a call back to that, which is why I kinda like em.

      One of her best looks ever (I know, not saying much, but still…) Can’t stand 99% of Stella’s designs and Kristen’s acting, but they seem to bring out the best … or at least the better … in each other! Her makeup looks gorgeous, too!

      Agree. I think she’s very pretty and these are nice pieces that would look better separately. Styles clashing. I don’t love it.

      So close. Those shoes are killing me. The buttoned up look suits her better than the strapless gowns though. But isn’t it summer on her home planet? Isn’t it like 90 degrees out? She’d have looked better in the original Stella top with that skirt. OUT.

      Out, but not for all the reasons she’s usually an out.  The hair is great, the makeup is great and for once she’s standing up straight and not looking sullen.  But the blouse.  I just can’t. It’s hideous.

    • http://profiles.google.com/adj.blair Adriana Blair

      I would have suggested the outfit without the jacket, but I think it’s good overall and her makeup looks really nice…IN.

    • Jessica O’Connell

      Begrudgingly, I’ll give her an IN. I like the sassy look and actually like the shoes. She really needs to fire her hair stylist though, because that shit is always a mess.

    • Melanie Harrison

      IN. Don’t love the shoes, but the rest of the outfit, combined with very good hair and make up really pull this look together for me.

    • momato

      Outfit looks mismatched and awkward to me.  Doesn’t help that she looks so awkward about wearing it.  Out.

    • Miriam Kumari

      Out. I think this would have looked better with cropped trousers. The shoes are great, but that close up of her leg is really unappealing.

    • rissa42210

      She looks adorable.  The A+ job on her makeup helps the B- job on her hair (little pieces in the front?!).  I agree with the discordance between the top and the bottom, but she looks cute.  I would have liked it better with pants and a little more androgyny.  IN.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_B53PQYXSJR4YJBV3J6BWYSICRQ Jamie

      She’s so pretty when she smiles – IN

    • BrooklynBomber

      Hhmmmm…. leaning towards out. I think the whole thing with her is that her vibe is jeans ‘n sneakers, scrappy tomboy down the street. And for some reason the oxymoron of putting her in grown up super expensive clothes appeals to people. The power of opposites, I guess. But I think this look would be better if her hair was down and she wasn’t wearing those shoes.

    • lifetime_student

      She looks adorable, she is even smiling in one shot. Also, she should wear her hair up more often. I had really never noticed how beautiful her eyes are because I was always so distracted by her normal unbrushed mess.

    • j_anson

      Hmm. I think she should have gone with a skirt that matched the rest of the outfit (in tone, not fabric – a full-on business suit would be weird), rather than trying to do the sly “I’m sneaking in a kind-of-punk-skirt, here!” route, because I don’t think the awesomeness of the skirt (though real) is actually adding to the awesomeness of the outfit. Still, she looks like she’s actually trying, and I happen to like the buttoned-up collar, so… in.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ENBX3563Q4ZNCVRGSJVFIB7OAA Thom

      You’re right, one or two buttons undone would’ve made it, but still IN.

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      IN, she looks great! That hairstyle is working for her, but I wish there was just the teensiest bit of color somewhere, shoes or jewelry (and I’d love to see her in the runway look with the blue stripe). 

    • http://twitter.com/poptartsjen Pop Tarts Jen

      IN x1,000. I love it – so sassy and different!

    • Lilak

      Good enough . . . Which means “Just over the line into IN,” I guess.
      (Trying to discipline myself not to quibble something out of a legitimate IN these days — reminding myself that the bar for IN isn’t necessarily as high as for Almost-WERQ.  We do get het up around here, don’t we?  Hee.)

    • giiiirrrr

      Perfection from the waist up.  Love the buttoned high collar on her.  The rest is isn’t bad either.  A solid IN.

    • sleepycat

      Awesome, IN

    • holdmewhileimnaked

      it’s an ancient–pre-precambrian, even–punkrocker look–something she often tries for & occasionally hits–but here it’s a bit off. nevertheless, it isnt bad–a bit of neck decor mightve even put it over onto the good side–either that or a lower collar–or a tie [but that would hit the punkrocker target a little too directly]–nevertheless redux, & as ever for me, this is better than it is worse, so put me down in the yes column.

      edited to add:
      ps. i hate the shoes.

    • Emily Guillory

      Oh, that’s a IN.  She looks great.

    • TSkot

      She looks ridiculous.  Definitely an OUT

    • Aly Light

      Stop trying to make me like her. I’m assuming the only reason y’all cut her a break is because you were never actually subjected to that Twilight shit. OUT.

    • jw_ny

      IN, but I really only like the skirt, and her makeup is perfect.  I think she looks especially pretty in the ‘I’m talking on my pretend cell phone’ pic above.  ;)  The outfit on a whole is rather a snore, but not bad enough to warrant an OUT.

    • Qitkat

      IN. Really a fantastic skirt.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3AJ237ND3GAHDQJZ4TLCO4WLRA Emily

      In.  She looks very put together.  Love it.

    • lesmaha

      I don’t like the jacket with the skirt. OUT.

    • demidaemon

      IN. Best she’s ever looked, in my opinion.

    • http://twitter.com/anibellee Lynsey M.

      In, these more casual looks suit her better than gowns usually seem to.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZNK2YOGTJVHW2MWCSUDM3RKMC4 Dave

      OUT – looks like a costume for a video mashup of Addicted to Love and…Baby One More Time?

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      Generally can’t stand her, but I’ll give her a begrudging IN.  That “smile” in the third pic sure looks forced.  And she looks a little wobbly on the heels.  But still, it is a cute outfit, even if it is Stella McCartney.  OTOH, her legs desperately need some spray on tan or something.  White as a sheet!  LOVE the jacket.

    • KathKo

      Wow ! Am I dreaming or Stella did finally manage to throw an actually nice outfit to the right girl  ?
      She looks fantastic, and I don’t like Kristen anymore than Stella.
      In.

    • CassieLee22

      IN….. but just barely

    • http://twitter.com/katshimmers Kat Wright

      In, but agree with the buttons undone suggestion!

    • http://profiles.google.com/h.e.waddell Heather Waddell

      In. Also, she’s growing on me with the interviews she’s doing about the new movie. I begin to suspect that most of her “sullen” reputation came from absolutely hating Twilight. And I can’t blame her for that.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      I think she isn’t pretty at all, and really mostly fug. And I hate those shoes. That said, she’s still IN in this outfit. I’m a ho for black and white.

    • leftcoastpickle

      Out. Hate the entire bottom half.

    • Monabel

      I like the neckline buttoned up because the line is clear. It could be softened with some color or ornament on the jacket. (how about a smashing antique brooch?)

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      She needs that jacket to be leather.   And blue.   And if she’s going to have hair that looks like she has been rolling around in the back of a taxi with a guy from the band, she’d also want to unbutton those buttons on that blouse.  Out.

      OUT. not a fan of the hair or the makeup and the top half of the outfit does not go with the bottom half to my eyes.

    • http://twitter.com/GaraStJames Gara St. James

      Yeah, I agree on the shoes and unbuttoning a button. I give it an “in” though, because it’s overall cute, and she smiled in some of the pics, which does a world of wonder for her.

    • Samantha Irene

      I would give it an in if she undid a few buttons and the black of the jacket matched her skirts black (as opposed to the buttons matching, but not the fabric) – but as is – must give an OUT – but do love the skirt, and like the idea of the outfit.

    • http://twitter.com/sarahohmygod Sarah Oleksyk

      This is working much better for her than some froufrou gown. IN!

      She looks like she hates everyone that dare gaze upon her. A sneer and a bad attitude are never pretty. 

    • http://eclectictsunami.blogspot.com/ Cassie

      Oh, what a great outfit. I don’t know if she carries it off as well as she could, but still – fabulous. Love that jacket and the high-buttoned blouse. Definitely IN.

    • Lisa

      OUT.  Shoes are way too big, and that left-over 80s jacket doesn’t even fit her.

    • eight_of_nine

      Girl looks great!  Maybe she should go with these uniform/menswear-inspired looks over gowns more often.

    • Jangle57

      My first thought was the jacket is too long.  Then I saw the same picture on another web site that just showed the outfit from about the knees up and I liked it so much better in that shot, the jacket’s length didn’t seem too long.  But I’m still going to give it an OUT

    • lessax3

      Without Patterson by her side she seems to be smiling more and looking better. Coincidence…

      I guess we’ll see when the press/opening circus starts for the next installment of I was a teenage vampire bride starts again. 

    • texashistorian
