Kristen Stewart in Balenciaga

Posted on September 28, 2012

We salute you, K Stew. Because we’re pretty sure you’re one of only a highly select few people who can make a neon yellow biker jacket and a pair of floral pants actually work.


Kristen Stewart attends the Balenciaga Spring 2013 fashion show during Paris Fashion Week.

Balenciaga Spring 2013 Capsule Collection Pants and Jacket. Fall 2011 ‘Poulaine’ Boot.

Sort of.

That’s a kickass jacket, you have to admit. The pants we can take or leave and the boots look like more trouble than they’re worth, but we didn’t realize until today just how much the world was crying out for a neon yellow biker jacket.

  • Not sure if she makes this work or if this just works – but there is a lot working in that outfit.

  • I love the jacket.  A lot.  Just can’t wear yellow.  Or afford it.  The boots are killa, too!

    • mjude

      but we can pretend we can! 

  • Meghan Bourn

    ummmm yeah… No.  

  • SapphoPoet

    I think she looks like a mess. And I wish she’d wash her hair. 

  • piecesofconfetti

    I do love that jacket. I’m not as pleased with the pants.

  • Paigealicious

    The jacket is pretty hot. Hate those floppy boots. And her greasy mop.

    • I think they clash with the pants, it looks so much better with the shoes the model’s wearing. Love the jacket.

  • kikisayshi

    I hate it when I like what she wears.

  • janetjb

    Love the jacket. 

  • afabulous50

    She has GOT to do something about that hair…wash it, brush it – I beg you!!! It takes away from everything she wears (in this case that might not be a bad thing).

    • Melissa Brogan

       Chop it all off if it’s that much work. Ugh!

    • AudreysMom

       Actually I was thinking how much I liked the red in her hair. Ok, a messy mob of red-tinted brown. But still, the new color is interesting.

  • Sobaika


  • ChiliP

    No. Just, no. No to the pastel yellow Michael Jackson jacket, no to the floral pants, no to those weird shoes, no to that hair. No.

    Yes, I’m especially bitter today. I need wine and chocolate,STAT.

  • Love the jacket; the pants, not so much.  I’m sorry, but her face always looks like she’s been rode too hard and put away wet.  Come to think of it, Robert Pattinson kind of gives me that vibe too.  It all makes it easier to sneer at the Twilight movies.

  • God, she’s a tiny little thing.

    I don’t mind the jacket. I do not like the pants or the boots and her hair is just tragic.

  • Ryan Williamson

    I think it’s actually pastel yellow.

    • MoHub

      Thank you! I simply couldn’t see it as neon either. Pale pastel yellow, for sure.

  • AlexisPayne

    I love her rocking these looks

  • I would kill to own that jacket in blue.  Small, insignificant creatures like flies and centipedes, but killing nevertheless…

    And fuck it, I like her hair.  My hair looks the same damn way after washing and drying; the genetic tree didn’t see fit to give either of us hair or scalps that ever look like a Panteen commercial.  It’s clean, it’s long, it doesn’t look fried and works with this faux-biker-chic thing.  But zip up those boots.

    • Ali

       I know, right? I think with the advent of silicone, shine spray, and flat irons, we’ve forgotten what natural hair looks like.

  • Jessica O’Connell

    P.S. That being said, please GO BRUSH YOUR GODDAMN HAIR.


  • ralish

    I think I’d love it if she swapped those (hideous) boots for some pumps.

  • Judy_J

    Maybe it’s my monitor, but that jacket looks more like canary yellow than neon yellow.  I like the way it looks to me….can’t imagine it in a neon shade. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again….she looks so much better when she smiles.

    • tereliz

      It’s sort of a citron on mine, which is color calibrated for important purposes completely unrelated to looking at fashion sites… But more of a washed out/pastel acid-yellow than neon. 

      I dig it, but think it might be better deployed to make a more feminine outfit edgier than to edge up an already graphic outfit. I hate the boots unreservedly. 

  • Monabel

    These photos make that jacket look like a pretty, soft greeny=lemony yellow, knot what I think of as neon.

  • Tatiana Luján

    Her makeup looks great! She looks pretty, fresh – faced and happy.
    No to the boots.

  • Lisa Dugan

    Great outfit but I hate the boots.  I get the point of them but too floppy for my test. Makeup is fab. 

  • GorgeousThings

    I like the idea of the flat boots, but the execution in that pair is not doing it for me. She is looking better and better these days. Getting out from under the Twilight stigma is doing good things for her.

  • RebeccaKW

    Love the jacket, the pants are okay.  The boots are HIDEOUS.  And…of course we have the dirty, unbrushed hair.  

  • schadenfreudelicious

    the world is also crying out for Kristin to wash her hair…..

  • Love it. I want to be her right now.

  • jahphotogal

    Yes, and she looks REALLY PRETTY.

  • Anathema_Device

    So ’80s, but in a good way. The boots are too fussy, but otherwise this is a great look.

  • NCDFan

    She looks great. There’s a nice harmony from the different elements of her outfit as well as the ‘wind-swept’ hair and the lovely makeup. 

  • Quirky and chic – way to go, K Stew.  She doesn’t look like your average, boring starlet, which is why she is the face of Balenciaga.

  • I work with a woman who can and does carry that off SO much better than K.Stew. Partly because she has much better hair.

  • Carleenml

    I think anybody young and cute could probably make this look young and cute. And it looks comfy. 

  • Rebecca Johnson

    Trying…to fight…my irrational….hatred….
    Nah, why bother? She looks ridiculous. I’ll save that fight for when she looks good and I still can’t stand her.

  • EEKstl

    That jacket is pretty badass.

  • That’s not neon yellow.  At best, that’s lemon or butter yellow.

  • lalahartma

    I do like the jacket.

  • Even though I like the print, the pants seem pajama-y to me.

  • nannypoo

    I like the outfit, but again with that shitty hair. Shampoo, Girl. What is wrong with you? And the boots suck. She should trade for the orange ones behind her.

    • PrunellaV

      Hey, it takes a LOT of product to get her hair to look like that! ;^)

  • marilyn

    Hate the boots.

  • The whole look suits her, and it’s a rather chic one at that. I hate the boots, though.

  • God, I can’t stand her. God, I love this outfit anyway. SO CONFLICTED!

  • PrunellaV

    Cuter than hell. And she’s actually smiling! With her mouth closed! (I kid because I love.)

  • The outfit, awesome. The hair, tragic.

  • Jillaine13

    I dug this look and she has the attitude to wear it well – until I got to the shoes.  She uglified and ruined the look with those god awful galoshes.  They look cheap with the white sole but know they’ve got to cost big $.  

  • I like all but the boots

  • siriuslover

    I think her “I don’t give a shit attitude” makes this work. Though that jacket is pretty freaking awesome! 

    • CozyCat

      Yes, the only way you can pull off floral pants is to act like, “aren’t these a hoot?”  Which is exactly the attitude she’s giving in the third picture.
      That jacket, however, would make anyone look (I hate to say the word but it fits)…fierce!

  • ratgirlagogo

    I love her whatever she wears. She is my current dykey-looking straight-girl “if only” crush, like Lisa-Marie Presley was for me twenty years ago (still is).  

  • That’s a badass outfit. She looks fantastic. Mere mortals would never get away with that look. 

  • Kind of wish she worn heels with the outfit, can’t help but think it would make it more awesome.

  • guest2visits

    Balenciaga can keep the boots, but she’s making everything else look great.
    First pic: well if most people noticed her before, – they certainly ALL do now.

  • I like the jacket, but I just can’t get past her hair. Lawd. When you don’t want to wash it or drag a comb through it…ponytail, dear..ponytail. 

  • Not sure I like the boots, but yeah, the pants & the jacket really kick this up a level.

    KStew brings it down.

  • elzatelzabelz

    I’m not impressed with her-her hair and make-up have reverted to her usual “blah-yuck-I just got out of bed).

  • MilaXX

    I guess after the whole scandal she finally said  eff it to trying to please people because her post scandal looks have been really great. I love this entire look, even the hair because it really works with the badassness of this look.

  • DesertRodent

    Poor KStew. She can’t help it if she has some sort of magnetic, negative vibe that attracts peoples’ criticism; whatever they can muster up. And if she’s got it goin’ on, they’ll just come up with, “I just hate her! And she should comb/not comb her hair.” Mostly I was looking at the Parisians in the background of the picture standing around judging her. I see her in the future being one tough old broad.

  • mmc2315

    The boots ruin it for me.  They are all wrong.  The outfit needs a different boot.  Something more kick ass and significantly less ugly.  Other than that?  Lookin’ good.

  • snarkykitten

    the boots are horrendous, but the rest works, oddly. I know it’s horribly sexist to say, but I do wish she’d bloody smile once in a while. The world has thrown shit at her for having an affair, while the married man got away clean, but must she always look so affected?

  • julnyes

    Love the jacket and I actually like her hair and makeup in these pictures. The pants are unfortunate.

  • KC

    I like it, did she get a stylist? She’s always had a kinda cool edgy style but I feel like these past couple months she’s been looking extra put together and comfortable.

    • Yeah, I’m thinking with the added pressure she’s been facing, she might be taking a much more methodical route to her public appearances than she did a few months ago when she truly did not give a crap and could away with not caring.

  • quiltrx

    I LOVE those pants!!

    Different style, same attitude, over 20 years ago…I used to rock a long taxicab-yellow blazer with a black/white herringbone skirt. 🙂

  • By all rights I should hate this and yet it’s all working. I don’t love it but it’s not making me want to throw things.

  • I hate each piece individually but she’s really making them work.

  • There is somethig “white trash” about KS…guess thats her thing!

    • bellafigura1

       Pejoratives kind of suck,  IMO.

  • I’m gonna have to say no to this outfit.  The yellow on the jacket is too pale for her.  The pants are… for a mime in a garden.  And those boots are terrible.  On their own, they’re fug, but with those pants, yeesh.  Truly fucking ugly.  No portmanteau can effectively describe how garish those boots are with those pants.  She shoulda borrowed Dakota’s boots from the other day.  Those were nice.  

  • Rebecca J.

    The jacket calls to mind those soft buttercream mints – the ones shaped like little pillows – in my Auntie Melna’s candy dish.  I loved those, and I love this jacket.

  • bellafigura1

    I rarely go against KS + Balenciaga, but ugh, no. I have a visceral hatred of yellow (or pink) and black and white together as a color story — it seems so cartoony-easy, and this outfit, with it’s zippers, big floral, white-soles just amps up the cartoon effect.  Blech.

  • Snailstsichr

    “Bikes, Blues & BBQ” is happening in my hometown this week – so she looks really stylin’ to me. (More so than any of the biker chicks I’ve seen about town, for sure.) Love the jacket.

  • la_lala

    This is not snark, but an honest question borne of curiosity: Does she make her hair look like that on purpose, like with a ton of product? Or is it really just constantly unwashed?

    • bellafigura1

       I have a 22 year old (blonde), and that is most definitely on purpose, and washed, with strategic scrunching and hairdryer-deploying and PhD-level understanding of product.

  • Fantastic.  She’s at the age where she can pull all this off.  Enjoy it while ya can.

  • Trisha26

    The outfit’s just okay. Shame she was running late & couldn’t have her hair washed & styled.

  • Tamara Hogan

    Love it. 

  • MzzPants

     I love that she’s brought couture into her bad-ass aesthetic.

  • what stylist with parkinsons paints her eyeliner on?

  • Swiftlytiltingplanet

    I know that this will never happen but I am compelled to say:  Please, please, please just make Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson just GO AWAY.  So tired of them both.  They’re not that pretty.  They’re not that talented.  Please.  MAKE IT STOP!!!!

    • Thank you!  I’m just not seeing this.  There are a couple instances where I *will* give her her due, but this isn’t one of them. I’d say 98% of the time, she just looks messy and unkempt to me.

  • galcurly

    The whole thing works other than the boots.  I don’t have a problem with boots with this outfit — just these boots.

  • HengRu

    Those pants and those boots are conspiring to make K-Stew’s legs look almost short, and I have seen enough pics of her here to know they are not.

  • txanne

    You are kidding right?  It’s all a hot mess.

  • shelley514

    She looks stiff and uncomfortable as usual.
