Kristen Stewart at the Chanel Fall 2013 Couture Show

Posted on July 03, 2013

Clear the room, everyone. Miss Kristen is serving up Severe Fashion Bitch realness and we should all give her a little space.


Kristen Stewart attends the Chanel Fall 2013 couture show in Paris, France.


We think all step-and-repeats should look like bombed-out European cities after the War, don’t you, darlings? Rubble chic!

We also think Miss Girl looks pretty amazing here. We’re having a very, very, VERY hard time with the idea of cutoffs at a Chanel show, but that’s just the kind of cheeky shit Uncle Karl gets moist for, so we suppose it’s venue-appropriate. What we’re really digging is the juxtaposition of that highly traditional – classic, even – Chanel jacket with the gloves, and the kickass jewelry, and yes, even the idea of shorts (if not the reality of cutoffs). It just all works for us in a fashion-can-be-fun kind of way. This is pretty much how you should do up Kristen for a Chanel show; give her something to show off a little attitude that’s relatively uncomplicated and easy to wear, make sure it tips its hat big-time to the Chanel aesthetic and give her something butch to wear, like driving gloves. Done and done.

    Dislike her, but she looks great. I’m always a sucker for fingerless gloves. Think I’d like the shoes more if they didn’t have the ankle part.

  • Squarah

    She looks like Karl’s pet. I bet there’s a leash that goes with one of those bracelets. I wouldn’t be remotely surprised if he picked this out himself since he’s so fond of her.

    • Denise Alden

      I think you’re on to something here. That being said, I don’t care much for Ms. Stewart or the Kaiser, but I think this look is fantastic.

  • selianth

    She looks seriously awesome here. I had a thought that maybe the shorts would be better if they were leather, but then that might put the whole thing a little too over the top. I don’t know.

  • ballerinawithagun

    Karl’s Dream Girl!

  • mini_d

    She smiles! Who knew?! Love the background too.

  • nannypoo

    I’m willing to give her all the space she needs.

  • Jessica Freeman

    I thought this was a photo shoot at first. She looks great, even in cut offs.

  • lindsmh

    She should break up with the Pattinson dude more often. As I recall, the last time those two called it quits she went out looking mighty fierce as well.

  • DamH

    Someone should get this girl some pants IMO/

  • Janet B

    After the show, she’ll remove the shoes, jacket and jewelry, put on her Converse and walk away happy.

  • Diego!

    She looks STUNNING! Shuting it down! How come this is not a WERQ???

    • I actually scrolled up to see if I had missed it in the headline. This is most DEFinitely a WERRRRRQ.

      • Diego!

        Definetely! She looks gorgeous!

    • Lisa Dugan

      Agree! Adore this!

  • beebee10

    I’d say this is WERQ-worthy. She (and her stylist) nailed it.

  • I really like this look, she pulls it off

  • I need those bracelets. Need.

    • StellaZafella

      Sorry Annabelle, to get them, you’ll have to sell the Ferrari. ;>)

  • MaggieMae

    Love it except for the gloves. I like the concept of adding some butch/rough to that jacket, but not those gloves. Maybe I could sign off on a kick ass cuff or other bold piece of jewelry with juxtaposition.

    • 3boysful

      Agree on the gloves. I’d have been like, “You want me to wear Madge-gloves??”

      • MaggieMae

        Exactly. Madonna-gloves was my first reaction too.

  • AlisonS

    She looks like a magazine editorial in the first couple of shots. Bravo girl!

  • desi_girl

    This has to be the first time I’ve liked her look. And she’s smiling, laughing even. How did that happen?

    • StellaZafella

      I would guess because, unlike the pole dances for Twilight, she actually wants to be here.

    • sekushinonyanko

      I think that’s her “this outfit is totally working” smile.

  • carnush

    This is one of my favorite Kristen looks of all time. Perfectly her and very Chanel. She looks fantastic.

  • AmeliaEve


  • Annarosa

    love it. attagirl.

  • eowyn_of_rohan

    She really does look great. Even if the thought of Uncle Karl getting moist will now serve as nightmare fuel.

    • “Uncle Karl getting moist” I gagged and laughed at the same time when I read that.

  • xmixiex

    looks fierce as hell; can’t stand her.

  • f_yeah_marie

    I was waiting for this post since I saw the photos yesterday! I’m not the biggest fan of K-Stew but sometimes she can rock looks that other stars her age can’t or wish they could. I loved her entire ensemble (except for the shoes).

  • Snailstsichr

    I hope she sent flowers to the artist who styled her! I’m agreeing with the personal best comments.

  • When I saw this last night, at first glance I thought she had a couple of bells hanging off the backs of the shoes, like a jester. Then I thought she was so cool for being so weird. Then I saw they were not bells and I was disappointed.

  • somebody blonde

    That first picture looks almost like a real photoshoot, not a step-and-repeat. So fierce.

  • Glam Dixie

    I think she looks amazing, I love this.

  • bliss

    I’m in love with the outfit and she knows how to rock it. she is really really pretty like a porcelain doll

  • Shawn EH

    Scroll-down fug for me, sorry Kristen.

  • nancy d

    This look is right up her alley. And one that not many young ladies can pull off with the same aplomb. I love the combined aesthetic of Karl and Kristen. They should team up more often.

    • AuntHo

      I love and hate her, but this is a fashion blog, so: she’s tough to dress and she doesn’t always get it right, but she looks great and this is perfect for her. A Karl/Kristen campaign would be a thing to behold.

  • TLJezebel

    Can’t she just go away?

    • momm

      can you just go away? nobody asks you to click and view this page.

      • alyce1213

        BKs say stuff like that all the time. Why the nasty to another kitten?

  • Erin Leahy

    I would just personally want to thank you for using the phrase “cheeky shit Uncle Karl gets moist for.”

  • Seannie5

    Wow, she looks stunning!

  • VioletFem

    This is a perfect look for her. I never would have thought that Channel would have been such a good fit for her.

  • Lola Channing

    she ruined it with the teenie tiny bag though. No fashion bitch carries her own shit.

    • Seannie5

      you do when it’s a fucking Chanel bag! Why would you WANT anybody else to carry it?

      • Lola Channing

        Why? Because it’d be pure luxury to have someone carry my things.

        • Rand Ortega

          LOL! Maybe she’s just carrying it for the photo op.

  • AmandaCathleen

    I love everything except the gloves, which will never not look like a costume to me.

  • SugarSnap108

    Eh, I find the fingerless gloves too forced here — Like she’s yelling, “Check this juxtaposition, bitches.” Otherwise, I love it.

  • drdarke

    Yes, @kiltdntiltd:disqus ! Those shoes don’t quite work with the rest – they need to be a bit less runway and a bit more kickass to work with this.

    I’m not a Kristen Stewart hata personally, though I’m still waiting for her to take that ‘tude and translate it to a role….

  • GillianHolroyd

    A good look for her. Handbag looks like an afterthought; wish she was wearing it as a shoulder strap.

  • mrspeel2

    Do I actually see a glimmer of a smile on her?! Do we think she’s tired of showing up in those “Bitchy Resting Face” vids.

  • formerlyAnon

    While I like seeing her smile, I think only photo #2 is fully successful. In all of the others she looks either too young or insufficiently serious & severe for the ensemble. (Also: not a fan of the shoes. The rest is fine, but Chanel wouldn’t be the name it is if this is what it had been built around.)

  • NMMagpie

    I saw this on another feed and wondered immediately what TLO would think about it. 🙂 I thought she looked good, full of attitude.

  • Gina

    Two snaps and a circle! BBgirl looking fierce!

  • That’s a perfect look for her for a Chanel show. Perfect. But I just cannot get my mind off the crazy step and repeat. WTF? I am loving these folks who are trying to mix it up but between the dumpster the other day and this. hmmm…

  • EEKstl

    Yeah, it’s all really working here, agreed. I have to say that any opportunity Miss Girl has to show off those amazing gams should be grabbed.

  • MilaXX

    I like it. It looks like her and it suits the venue.

  • d4divine

    When I was younger, I used to dressup my cousins in whatever I could find in their closet and my closet…boy did I make a mess. KS reminds me of my 4 year-old cousin posing…just stick it on her and put it in her hand…smile for me.

  • d4divine

    As for the outfit…love the outfit, but not the shoes. #partyrocktopladyfeet

  • Pannyx

    She looks so great for a second I thought that these were fashion ads. Especially that second shot.

  • frannyprof

    She looks awake, animated, even.

  • alyce1213

    Alert the authorities! The girl is SMILING (in two shots, anyway).
    I don’t usually go for Kristen’s looks, but she’s right on point here, except maybe the gloves.

  • frannyprof

    Agree. do not like the shoes.

  • SportifLateBoomer

    Wow she looks fantastic and I do love the outfit. But I will be a little bit devil’s advocate and ask the experts… isn’t it a little matchy matchy with all Chanel? Duh, I know she’s at the Chanel show so there’s that. It strikes me as a little too-too. But she’s rocking it well and smiling, so who cares?

    I do love a short-sleeved suit jacket like that. Can look so fierce. in my past corporate life, in the 90s, I had a few and wore them w/matching skirts in the summer, and I just felt so pulled together and sharp looking.

    • DF

      Shoes are not Chanel and they’re important to the look.

  • Terry

    I wish she’d lighten up her eye make up.

  • SusiePamudji

    I don’t dig the gloves, but the rest is gorgeous.

  • NoveltyRocker

    Maybe all of this mashup for an editorial instead…?

  • Toto Maya

    I think this is the best she’s looked.

  • random_poster

    Applause for this any way you slice it. I’d give her a WERQ.

  • A look that works precisely once, and only for her. Well done.

  • CeeRich

    I love this so much because the look is a perfect blend of HER style and Chanel. She looks great.

  • Rand Ortega

    Gorgeous. Perfect combination of Look + Girl + Aesthetic. Maybe she should have the Kaiser exclusively style her. They could span the globe giving bitchface to the undeserving. Until, of course, he gets tired of her being more attitudinal than he is & strangles her.

  • sweetlilvoice

    I actually love it and it appears she does too. Girl is serving it.

  • Lucas

    OH MY GOD SHE SMILED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who is she and what has she done with K-Stew? But anyway. Yes, I actually gotta give her props for looking fierce here. Is this the Twilight Zone?

  • marlie

    She looks great – even her hair looks like someone made an effort. And this edgy-chic looks is right up her alley.

  • Susan Bigler

    I HATE her hair. Why can’t the stylist smooth it so it looks sleek? I guess it’s deliberate and I vote no.

  • Anniebet

    Pin back her ears, get her a new hair stylist and I’ll maybe get on the bandwagon. Prolly not though. She appears to think her legs are the only thing she should feature.

  • demidaemon

    She’s smiling! I think hell just froze over.

    Also, her outfit is pretty cool and not see-through, so there’s that.

  • E. D.

    I’d give this a WERQ.

  • j_anson

    I kind of hated this in the first pic, but kind of loved it in the second. Which is probably because in the first pic she’s doing her standard slightly-defiant but uncomfortable thing, and in the second she looks like a model (ie standing up straight and looking like she’s judging someone).

  • Virginie

    Wow. She looks incredible. Future Sex Bomb!

  • bd73

    the jacket is the part that doesn’t work for me. a more modern chanel jacket, perhaps a bit fitted, feels more appropriate.

  • So…it appears we have a rabid KStew fan here. Welcome. We aren’t attacking you’re girl. We are expressing our opinions. I promise, we aren’t hurting her feelings in any way. Breath through it and go watch your Twighlight box set until you feel better.

  • LauraAgain

    I love Kristen Stewart! She can rock the Chanel look as well as punk (The Runaways) and grunge (Twilight) and still look adorable. I love how dainty and ladylike her diamond jewelry and purse are, up against the driving gloves.

    I would have put stud earrings on, though.

  • PeaceBang

    That’s a WERQ if I ever saw one. Perfect.

  • ItsDicey

    Girl is shutting it DOWN.

  • ankali

    She looks great, and is a very good match for the house, I think.

  • The best she’s looked in a while. Chanel yet punky.

  • LaSylphide

    Now this I love – maybe not so much the shoes, but she’s got the legs for them and they do go with the overall look. It’s fun seeing the classic Chanel interpreted like this, and it totally WERQs. Sexy AND chic (unlike the Rhianna mess).

  • KC

    Dude she looks awesome and I like the shorts. For me, this gets a WERQ.

  • snarkykitten

    I hate it when people tell women to smile more, but she looks…not better, but good/different when she smiles

  • understateddiva

    More styled by Chanel than the models on the runway. BORING. Hope some of the attendees had actual personal style.

  • Sadie-Ann

    I wish the shorts were just an inch or so longer so that you could really see them from under the jacket. Other than that, I really like it.

  • BuffaloBarbara

    I can get behind everything but the hair. Looks like the styled her starting with the shoes, and just pinned her hair out of the way while they were working, but then ran out of time before the event and sent her out unfinished.

  • Sagecreek

    Actually, I think that works really well on her. The whole look. I’m with KC…this is a WERQ.

  • GeorgiaMaude

    SHE HAS NO STYLE! UGH! She’s just a popular skinny celebrity on whom people put expensive clothes. That doesn’t a fashionista make. I’ve never seen her pull any of it off.

  • likingrob

    perfection for Kristen

  • friscogal

    So, I guess after seeing this outfit (and Rihanna’s Chanel “bathrobe”), we can assume that cutting off your pant legs up to your naughty bits (or just forgetting about the pants all together) will be the rage this season.
