Kristen Stewart in Chanel at the Chanel “Metiers d’Art” Show

Posted on December 11, 2013

This just may be the best Kristen Stewart look we’ve ever seen. Maybe not the most chic or fashion-forward…

Kristen Stewart attends the Chanel “Metiers d’Art” Show at Fair Park in Dallas, Texas in Chanel.

Chanel Spring 2014 Collection

 

But you can’t deny it suits her to a T. We don’t think we’ve ever seen her look quite so comfortable facing a bunch of photographers.

Actually, we’re going to say it: those pants are pretty damn chic. Hate us if you must, but we think they’re kinda killer.

    • Courtenay P

      man, she went away fast.

      • Lou2

        What do you mean went away? She’s the new face for Chanel’s Métiers D’Art Paris-Dallas Collection, so it doesn’t seem like she’s so gone…

        • six_dgrs

          Its not ok for celebs to take a break like they are real human beings, I mean who does she think she is a person?

        • dalgirl

          I’m not a Kristen hater, but I sure haven’t missed her. Credit for the pants, though!

          • terpsichory

            I am not really a Kristen lover but I actually HAVE missed der. I usually dig her out-of-left-field red carpet style, especially after a sudden onset of funeral fashion fun or just to liven up the usual boring/pretty fare.

    • Diego!

      The pants look great on her, but that top is not doing her any favors… And she looks kinda lost, doesn’t she?

      • altalinda

        To each his own, of course, but I disagree. I think the top is doing her lots of favors because she looks pretty hot. The wanna-be Veronica Lake hair, on the other hand,…..

        • ankali

          I agree. I think the top is crazy flattering.

    • annabelle archer

      I don’t hate you, TLo. Just those pants. And the ridic sweater tied around them.

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        What she said!

        • LipstickForPigs

          And the hank of dirty hair in the face.

          • jjfg

            The perma Mean Girl face…

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

        A leather prison jumpsuit doesn’t move you?

      • Sobaika

        I am HERE for the pants. Not the tied sweater, though. Does she have her period?

        • tereliz

          HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Every. Single. Day.

          Oh, wait, you were talking about the sweater around her waist?

          • marlie

            I keep coming back to this comment… it cracks me up!

    • MaggieMae

      Nope, hate it. The shape, the colors, bleh.

    • SAA

      She looks ridiculous. Ill fitting pants, sweatshirt tied around her waist causing a pooch effect, no bra and pulling up the sleeve so we can see the ‘oh so cool’ ugly tattoo… If this is Chanel’s future (she’s the ‘face’ for this collection), count me out. Balenciaga worked for her, Chanel? no.

      • six_dgrs

        Just saw the tattoo & it is indeed cool if you actually know the meaning of it. Art history major here.

        • SAA

          I do know the meaning of it. And I dont find it cool. I find it ugly and distracting. But to each his own. I’m sure some people think the same of my tatts.

        • effie

          would you mind sharing the meaning? or what it’s suppose to be?

          • ScarlettHarlot

            It’s the light bulb/sun from Picasso’s Guernica.

            • blondie65

              I saw Picasso’s Guernica many years ago as a teenager (ok..decades…) when I was visiting my older sis in NJ for two weeks during my summer vacation. There was a Picasso exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art and the entire Museum was a special exhibit of only Picasso paintings. My mother insisted my sister take me. We lived on the west coast of FL and as my mother said, nothing as signifcant as this exhibit will make its way down to this area any time soon. My sis & I would have preferred to go play tennis & hang at the pool, but neither of us wanted to face the wrath of my mom if my sis did not take me. To this day, I remember turning the corner and seeing that painting. It was one entire wall, the only painting in the room. 30 some odd years later, I forgot most of what I did the rest of that trip, but I’ll never forget seeing that painting in person.

            • Lulu

              I saw that exhibit too! And was also struck by the power of that painting.

        • tereliz

          MA in Art History, and IMO the All-Seeing-Eye is such a conservative symbol I’d hardly call it “cool”, no offense. I’m not a tatt hater, either, I have two large pieces myself. I just feel that using big blocks of black like that is a hallmark of a cheap tattoo from someone who isn’t that talented.

          Not that she couldn’t use an eye to watch over her, but wasn’t the tatt originally temporary for a role? Meant for the character she was playing, not herself? That makes it feel even more unoriginal to me.

          Sorry to comment so negatively, but I just don’t think it’s aesthetically pleasing as tattoos go.

          edit, just saw below someone’s Guernica comment, and while I see the resemblance, it completely lacks the elegance of the original. Still hate it.

          • another_laura

            I’m with you. It’s too generic to be a good “Guernica” reference. No art degree, just art appreciator and fan of “Guernica” and indifferent on the subject of tattoos.

            • ScarlettHarlot

              I don’t know anything about her personal life or reasons behind tattoo, and this is the first time I’ve seen it, but I do think it’s probably inspired by Guernica. I have an MA in Art History, so admittedly my mind does tend to jump to such comparisons, but that eye bulb is so iconic that, even rendered poorly against a solid black background as it is here, it’s a pretty recognizable symbol.

              That said, it is indeed poorly done. It is so simplified, it looks as though it was applied with a sharpie. I agree with tereliz, it looks like the tattoo artist simply wasn’t very talented. I like Guernica, I like the idea of the tattoo, but hate the execution.

      • somebody blonde

        Honestly, I think it’s kind of low to make fun of someone’s tattoos. It probably meant something meaningful to them if they felt it important enough to get permanently inked into their skin.

        • mightbewrong

          Just because an accessory’s permanent doesn’t mean it can’t be ugly or poorly-chosen.

        • SAA

          She can have whatever tattoo she wants. But pulling up every right arm sleeve she wears (as she has been doing lately, and followed suit here) in order that we are all forced to see it is my problem.

          • marlie

            There are some stars who seem to actively make their tattoos a part of their “outfit” by directly OR indirectly highlighting them. When/if that’s the case, they can become part of the commentary of the overall look. BUT at the same time, they’re not something that can be quickly or easily changed by hopping into the shower (like hair and makeup could be).

            • CT14

              But she has access to fabulous makeup that could cover it, easily changing the “accessory”.

              Personally, I’m just pleased she closed her mouth in one picture.

    • six_dgrs

      On anyone else I’d be like wtf, but she works them. I love this look on her.

      • Spicytomato1

        Yes, this is a perfect example of what doesn’t necessarily translate to the Real World working nicely on a celeb. It’s all about context.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

        I love it too, except the pointy shoes. They are too pointy and somehow uncool.

    • Nancer

      Love the pants, but what is it with the sweater as belt? They couldn’t leave that off?

      • Isabel

        Papa Karl must want to save some money on belts. Urgh. It looks like something that I used to do in high school.

      • deathandthestrawberry

        That sweater is making my eye twitch! I can’t…

        • Aurumgirl

          Mine, too, but let’s face it: this whole event is an ad for Karl, so everyone is wearing what they’re wearing exactly as they’ve been told to do. They’re all wearing the clothes almost precisely the way they were styled to go down the runway. Kristin just turned the sweater so that it ties in the front, not the side. She’s just doing her job.

    • HM3

      Sorry, Uncles. This is a bit TOO exactly copied from the runway look (right down to the sweater, which–sorry to go there–will always look like someone had an “accident,” when tied around the waist). Ick.

      • another_laura

        *snort* ah, the memories, the humiliation….

      • GillianHolroyd

        Now see I think the model looks great, okay, as great as you can look with two superfluous sweaters. I wish she’d copied the look more exactly. A sweater tied in front would’ve hidden the unattractive posture-pouch.

    • First

      Kristen is the new face of Chanel…. I actually like the pants more I see of them…. especially in HQ pics….. love that she is rocking her tattoo with that sleeve rolled up higher…

    • beammeup

      I like her outfit. It looks comfortable, cool and chic. Just like Kristen. And she was so comfortable and in the moment last night. It was great.

    • Vickiefantastico

      Guys, really? I don’t think I can jump on the bandwagon with you here. The makeup is too yellow-y, the hair is messy and ridiculous-looking, and her facial expression looks either very drugged out or uncomfortable. The sweater is okay, but don’t get me started on the large, orange, leather (pleather?) pants. I’m not a Kristen hater, but this is awful.

      • marlie

        Heh, I consider myself to be a Kristen hater, and this isn’t so bad to me. Her facial expressions and affectations are never going to change, but this outfit somehow works for her. And I appreciate that it looks like she washed her hair recently.

    • zenobar

      “Damn! I shouldn’t have run this sweatshirt through the dryer.”

      • charlotte

        “Whatever, I’m still gonna wear it.”

    • SarahMT20

      This is a look that grows on you. I wasn’t sure at first, but the more I see of it, the more I like it. I’m pretty Karl himself styled her and it was an event in a barn, with a mechanical bull. The people in couture were the ones who looked out of place.

    • zenobar

      Wow, someone is merrily downvoting every comment they don’t personally agree with, huh?

      • zenobar

        Including me, apparently. Carry on then.

      • Vickiefantastico

        I really don’t like the downvote. Brings unnecessary negativity to an otherwise lighthearted site.

        • zenobar

          Agreed. I feel the downvote should at least be reserved for really heinous, mean and/or nasty stuff.

          • marlie

            DUH. I should have read your comment first. :P

        • marlie

          And most of us reserve its use for comments that are nasty, contain body-snarking, or are otherwise inappropriate.

          • annabelle archer

            And stoopid. Don’t forget stoooopid.

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

        The fangurls have arrived, clearly.

      • ChiliP

        Man, there are some serious KStew fans onboard today- people are getting downvoted for making pretty mild criticisms.
        Also, agree about disliking the downvote option. I have a feeling that if it couldn’t be done anonymously, it wouldn’t be done nearly as frequently.

        • BigShamu

          Let’s get rid of upvoting and downvoting altogether and get back to talking about the interesting and relevant things TLo bring to the table.

          • boweryboy

            I think it’s a built-in feature of Disqus.

        • somebody blonde

          Honestly, I downvote pretty often (usually for overly negative/unfair opinions) and I’d rather it weren’t anonymous. I’d like to see who agrees with me when I downvote something.

          • boweryboy

            So, you down vote if you don’t like someone’s opinion? That seems a bit unfair since we all have differing opinions at times. I never down vote. If I find something overly negative or unfair I move on. Although, I do agree it shouldn’t be anonymous.

            ETA: I didn’t down vote you.

            • somebody blonde

              Not “disagree.” I said and meant overly negative/unfair. For example, I always downvote the ones that deride someone for not looking happy enough, because I think it’s kind of sexist and awful to police people’s facial expressions. Basically, I downvote the kind of stuff that I really think should be entirely gone from the site. It’s one thing to say the lady looks awful in this outfit, it’s quite another to say that she looks like a grumpy skank, you know what I mean?

            • boweryboy

              Well, the way I see it this site is like hanging out with a bunch of good friends dishing dirt and talking trash all in good fun. I don’t take any of the comments seriously because, for the most part I don’t think they’re suppose to be taken seriously.

              And to be fair, out of all the online message boards I visit this is the only one where everyone is genuinely friendly and fun to chat with even when there’s some sort of disagreement. I think that’s because a lot of us here love fashion and love discussing celebrities wearing fashion – both good and bad.

            • Vickiefantastico

              Well said, and I completely agree!

            • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

              Has anyone here said anything like that; that she looks like a grumpy skank?

      • llism

        It seems so. Someone has a serious hard-on for her, apparently.

      • Jessica Freeman

        The Twihards have arrived.

      • mightbewrong

        It drives me nuts, because it’s both passive aggressive AND adds nothing to the conversation. Trying to silence someone else is the weakest way to make your point.

        • marlie

          And TLo joke about it, but I think the part about “showing your work” when you’re critiquing a look adds a lot of valuable insight to the conversation. Even if I don’t agree with someone, I can still appreciate WHY their opinion differs.

          • annabelle archer

            That’s always my immediate request, just tell folks what you disagree with, be a part of the conversation. Unless it’s to a comment of mine that is clearly more humor than fashion critique. I get that my brand of bitch is not for everyone.

            • marlie

              And if you don’t think someone is funny, just move along.

              Personally, I love your brand of bitch. You’d fit in with my crowd. ;)

            • demidaemon

              Same here. I think we should turn it into a fragrance, cologne, and clothing line.

            • marlie

              Not everyone has to “show their work” all of the time. I’m cool with an “I love it” or” I hate it.” But if you’re going to react to something that someone says – particularly negatively, explain yourself.

              Each message board/comments section is different; aside from TLo’s explicit rules, we’ve generally set our own tacit rules around here, and people who aren’t regulars don’t know them.

      • annabelle archer

        Sigh. It makes me want to say something snarky and rude, something like, “It’s okay KStew stans, you can come here and down vote any comments you want. It’s not like you have better things to do with your time, like go see a new movie of hers, or read about her many upcoming projects.” Luckily, I’m not that argumentative.

    • JauntyJohn

      The epitome of someone who (for a change) seems to really like the way they look, and thus it empowers (there’s that word — sorry!) them to really give something to the cameras.
      I like the look on her – love the colors. The way the sweater fits we’re a skosh close to “I can see your dirty pillows” territory but I think she gets away with it.

    • Kent Roby

      The new face of Chanel? I don’t see her selling anything more high-end than lice shampoo.

    • sojourneryouth

      I really like the pants (although the sweater tied around them at the most unflattering point possible is ridic), but I don’t really like them on her. That type of wide pant is a more sophisticated look, and while I do think Kristen can be fashionable, polished she ain’t–she’s more edgy/casual. I don’t think she’s pulling them off. That cropped yoga top and bad bra (if she’s even wearing one?) isn’t helping things either.

    • msdamselfly

      are you blind?

      • tallgirl1204

        So, what’s your point? You disagree with TLo? So much more interesting if you could explain yourself. Otherwise all you’ve done is bring snarkiness to the conversation with no substance. Yawn.

        • mightbewrong

          Yeah, how dare someone make a short, kinda funny comment.

          • tallgirl1204

            A high rated comment is often “oh God, no,” with then a discussion of what exactly they mean. The explanation is all. I would really like to know what it is that msdamselfly saw that she thinks TLo totally missed. Other commenters have fleshed out what they see as the look’s deficiencies (or not)– “Are you blind?” is rude to two people who are anything but, and also doesn’t tell us anything at all about msdamselfly’s own ability to observe and analyze. And yes, I can tell that I am being boring here too–

            • mightbewrong

              It’s perfectly possible to say something like that in a funny way, without being insulting. And honestly, I’d rather read 10 short, mildly funny comments than one dullard berating them for not being ‘substantial’ enough.

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        No. Are you?

    • Scimommy

      Huh. I think I would’ve liked it more if she *wore* that black sweater instead of tying it around her hips.

    • KinoEye

      The new face of Chanel, eh? Interesting… I’ve got mixed feelings about Miss Missy, sowe’ll see how this all pans out. I actually don’t hate this look, like I feel I should, although the sweater around the waist is off-putting.

    • kimmeister

      The whole look is making her torso look very boyish, especially the sweater tied around her hips.

    • pugluv

      If a sweater is going to be tied anywhere, then across the shoulder, like on the model, across her waist just looks ridiculous. I just can’t go along with you on this T LO. I think it looks sloppy and her hair is just beyond awful.

      • marlie

        Although the model is also wearing a sweater tied around her waist backwards, which I think is even more ridiculous. If that starts to become a trend, I’m going to get rage-y.

    • jess89

      She looks like she’s developing some Britney Spears neck thing here.

      I just don’t get this girl. So average looking. So overwhelmed by everything she wears. Yet the fashion world adores her. Even signing her for new contracts while she’s still under another contract that she’s dissed in the press and in her actions. Some people are teflon.

    • kipper

      sorry, that sound you hear is COCO SPINNING IN HER GRAVE…..

      • SewingSiren

        She deserves it.

      • Carina

        no.

    • susan6

      Sorry TLo….everything below the neck is a trainwreck. That outfit seems like it is actively trying to be as ugly as possible.

    • MK03

      I’m sorry, I just can’t sign off on leather gauchos.

      • tereliz

        Please, these are leather palazzos! ;)

        • MK03

          Still can’t sign off on them. Blerg.

    • tereliz

      LOVE the pants, actually. It’s the sweater/shirt/wrap around the waist I can’t stand. If there’s no room for it in the actual outfit, and you’re not dressing in layers because of the swinging temps, FERTHELUVACHRIST leave it off. It’s not like that was an actual trend in the 90s, y’all. People just got hot.

    • imspinningaround

      I would like this outfit a lot better on Rihanna.

    • llism

      Regrettably, my personal distaste for her wooden acting colors my opinions of her fashion.

    • Jessica Freeman

      The sweatshirt tied around her waist is ridiculous. And for the first time in a while she actually looks like she is enjoying herself. I quite like this crazy outfit.

    • SusiePamudji

      I don’t mind it, but she could have worn a bra.

    • LuisaNL

      I kinda like it but it feels like the proportions are all off.and that sweater around her waist needs to go.

    • SouthernGirlRena

      That sweater is the color of dust. Why would anyone knit dust into a sweater? I actually kind of like the pants but the sweater tied around it ruins them.

      • kimmeister

        The mental image of knitting dust into a sweater has me in giggles. Then again, the dust at my house is 90% composed of cat hair, so it would actually be possible . . .

    • Anna_Cecilia

      The sweater around the waist looks more chic the way it’s styled on the model, but I love this outfit.
      I find it amusing that Kristen Stewart was a toddler when this look was first popular, but it really works for her. Not a full WERQ from me, but still, well done.

    • another_laura

      That particular sweater placement doesn’t work for me (see HM3’s comment above, oh man, been there, done that) but overall I think she looks pretty great in this.

    • SewingSiren

      For car shows, the leather pants should always be tight.

    • Nonmercisansfacon

      I think it’s bad. The shirt is too tight and the pants are not right for her. She looks like an apprentice at a garage!

      • kimmeister

        And she’s actually the kind of gal who could totally rock tight orange leather pants!

    • deb

      The pants look great on the model… where they sit low on the hips and there is visible waistline. Sitting high on the hips on miss K they just make her look like she has no figure at all. Not flattering — just thick waisted and stumpy (which I’m sure she isn’t). She always looks vacant and dull in the pics I’ve seen of her, am surprised she’s been chosen to be the face of Chanel. But then again, I’m hardly their demographic… :-)

      • somebody blonde

        There was one editorial in which she was done up in ’60s mod drag, with giant hair and major eyeliner and she looked damn good. I kind of think she just hates photos.

    • deathandthestrawberry

      The sweater placement baffles me. I mean, it almost offends me the way it’s tied around her waist like a bow over her veejay.

    • tallgirl1204

      Yay! I know they don’t look great on everyone, but I am cheering for high-waisted 1970s pants to come back… I also know that fashion demands discomfort, but geez, having pants at your real waist is so dang …… comfortable….

      • Supernumerary

        Especially for those of us with some serious hip action going on. Speaking for myself, I can’t keep low-rise pants in place. High-waisted, though, are a godsend.

        They do seem to be making a comeback, or at least 2013 has been pretty kind about lots of retailers stocking them.

        • tallgirl1204

          Maybe that’s what it is– I have what are known as “high hips” or spoon-shape. Even “mid-rise” pants sit well below my hipbones. YAY for the return of waistbands that sit above my hips!

      • kimmeister

        Not only more comfortable, so much more natural for wearing a belt or for tucking in a blouse.

    • Lesley

      if it was styled on her as it is seen on the runway i think she would of looked hot but this is just some great pieces executed very sloppy

    • boweryboy

      The outfit looks sloopy, the proportions are off, and those pants are kinds of hell to the no hiddy. At least she doesn’t look smelly as per usual so there’s that.

      • boweryboy

        Looks like there’s some Twilight/KStew fans on here down voting peeps. I said she doesn’t look smelly, so it’s a compliment – almost kind of.

        • SewingSiren

          Pssst..maybe it’s Uncle Karl.

          • boweryboy

            LOL!!! I can just imagine him now, hunched over a laptop, petting his cat with one hand, downvoting with the other, and foaming at mouth spewing obscenities towrds the BKs in French.

            • SewingSiren

              Or German!

    • bellafigura1

      I am in the vocal minority on K-Stew, I love her looks and her clothes and her surly attitude. I think this look is stellar, and suits her perfectly too. The pants are to die for.

    • stubbornthoughts

      There comes a day in every woman’s life when she must disagree with her fabulous uncles. This is that day.

      I hate those pants. And this outfit.

    • BrooklynBomber

      Yikes, I think this is terrible, head to toe.

    • MannahattaMamma

      adore the pants hate the attitude. if you really dislike it all so much…um…don’t do it? don’t take the free fab pants, don’t go to dallas to stand in front of a fancy car. but if you DO take the fancy pants for free, then smile because you’re wearing pants that cost more than most of us make in a month. Two months. Okay, six months. BIG SMILE.

    • Bexxx

      Remove the sweater and I like it a lot. I think she looks chic and very Kristen, and she looks comfortable for once.

      I really can’t believe she is the new face of Chanel. What a laughable decision. “A girl should be two things, classy and fabulous.” – Coco Chanel. Sorry but this chick is neither classy (swears like a sailor at public press events, flips off paparazzi in every shot, has an affair with a married man, etc) not fabulous (wears dirty tee shirts and sneakers and too tight jeans everywhere, can’t be bothered to dress up for RC events, annoyed that she has to make public appearances for her job, etc). No one who can actually afford Chanel is going to look to her as their seasonal inspiration.

      • Jaime

        Vogue voted her best dressed last year, so some people think she can be bothered to dress up for the red carpet. I think she’s a perfect choice for today’s couture.

        • demidaemon

          The people at Vogue must be either/both a) blind as fuck b) taking huge bribes c) serious fashion trolls. What does everyone else think?

          • marlie

            She made some interesting fashion choices, and I appreciate the fact that she’s willing to try looks that are a little more adventurous, but she missed the mark just as much as she hit it.

            So KStew wouldn’t win best dressed in my book, but maybe an honorable mention for trying different things.

        When you phrase it like “swears like a sailor at public press events, flips off paparazzi in
        every shot, has an affair with a married man, etc) not fabulous (wears
        dirty tee shirts and sneakers and too tight jeans everywhere, can’t be
        bothered to dress up for RC events, annoyed that she has to make public
        appearances for her job, etc” I like her so much more. I suspect the wee love is too young to know what “iconoclast” means, but I do have a soft spot for them.

    • mjude

      hmmmm not sure. but she does look comfortable.

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      Girl, that is SO your outfit. I’d hate those pants on anyone but the model and her.

    • Lori

      As someone over at Fug Girls pointed out, those pants have a Jethro belt. As in Beverly Hillbillies Jethro and that piece of rope he used to hold up his britches. And she’s wearing a sweater tied around her waist like she’s worried that the leather Jethro-belted pants make her butt look big. This can’t possibly be the best she’s ever looked in front of the photographers. It just can’t.

    • MilaXX

      I like the outfit. It suits her perfectly. I on the fence about the hair, It looks clean, but I think it’s a little too messy for my taste.

    • mightbewrong

      Vaguely reminds me of the girl from Portal, but I guess that’s better than a lot of things.

    • frannyprof

      I have an orange leather trenchcoat, complete with a matching leather belt/tie thingy, that would go perfectly with those pants. Feel free to hate me because I have it and you don’t.

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

        Do you? That is the most fabulous thing I have ever heard. I can’t wear orange but the fact that you do gives me life.

        • frannyprof

          Thank you ! I got it at an estate sale. Wasn’t sure I’d be able to pull it off, but I knew I’d regret not buying it.

    • DaveUWSNYC

      Is it me or are the high beams on?

    • blondie65

      Damn that is a beautiful car. For any car aficionados, I believe these pics confirm the car is a 58 Vette. Don’t hate the pants…she does look more comfortable than we normally see her at photo ops, which may be giving more life to the look than the actual clothes. However, I am totally flashing back to middle school with that tied sweater …I always wore mine like that on mornings that started out cold and later warmed up. It was the only way I could be sure not to leave it somewhere.

    • Jecca2244

      im always curious how brands pick celebs to front campaigns. I would say most of her fans are either too young for Chanel or can’t afford it. But i guess that’s not the point?

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

        The thing about couture is that it doesn’t make money. All of the houses make their ££ out of makeup and accessories. Her fans might not be able to afford a boucle suit but they sure as shit can afford a couple of nail polishes.

        • Jecca2244

          oh very smart!! that is what I buy..designer makeup. can’t afford much else but will shill out 27 bucks for nail polish. or lip stick.

          • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

            Exactly! I am a cheapskate (about everything) but because I live in the UK I have a lot of friends send me to Selfridges or wherever to see if they can get the designer polish that is sold out everywhere else. The Chanel look is quite conservative, but their cosmetics lines are much more edgy and interesting. And affordable. She’s a pretty good fit, really.

    • Ginny Ellsworth

      Is it the top, the ridic way she is standing or are the girls descending at different rates of acceleration? A really nice bra could have helped mitigate the effect.

      I like the pants but wonder what kind of top would have worked better than this one which gives the unfortunate appearance of a cut off sweatshirt.

      • Lori

        I think it’s the way she’s standing but yeah, a bra would have been a really good idea.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      Deeply odd, and while I can’t say I *like* it, I will say it suits her.

    • Julia

      Man, I have to disagree with you on this one, TLo. Looks a bit too much like futuristic pajamas for me. And I will never get over her hair.

    • marlie

      Get rid of the sweater around the waist (seriously… I stopped doing that when I was 15), and we’d have a KStew WERQ here. And that’s despite the fact that I hate cropped tops, midriff-baring, AND high-waisted pants. This time, it all works.

    • lynnlee

      I generally think she looks boring, but this looks great on her. The pants are too long, though.

    • ashtangajunkie

      I know I’m probably in the minority, but I kind of enjoy her hair like this. I want those pants and I certainly wouldn’t hide my bum with a sweater if I was wearing them.

    • Kate4queen

      I don’t like any of it. sorry. :(

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      HIGH WAISTED TROUSERS FOREVER. I have a pair of red leather pants that are similar. Also, super 90s look.

    • elemspbee

      Oh no. She looks terrible. But I like the hair.

    • AzSportsGirl

      I am utterly impressed wtih the way the sweater is tied and lays perfectly around her HIPS. Not her waist.. her HIPS. That’s some serious double stick tape to work on leather and what I am assuming is cashmere. But OMG.. what that double stick tape must be doing to said leather and cahsmere.

      • Trickytrisha

        Prolly took her assistant or stylist 2 hours to get the sweater tied Just Right.

    • Trickytrisha

      Long pants like these make me giggle. Pointy toed shoes that look like cartoon bird beaks make me giggle harder.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      Her face looks happy but her torso does not.

    • teensmom99

      Love the pants! And the first time I’ve ever seen her not look like she’s playing dress up.

    • Ragnarockette

      LOVE the pant…hate everything else. I imagine how chic Nicole Richie would look in these and it makes me cry that Kristin got to wear these.

    • SylviaFowler

      Having a Chanel label on it doesn’t mean it’s not trailer trash.

    • Janet B

      I’m not loving the complete outfit on Kristen, but those pants are fantastic.

      When I see a celebrity wearing a perfect garment, I feel bad that they probably won’t be able to wear that it again.

    • roverrun

      And when I think “Chanel” I immediately think “Fair Park, Dallas Texas”

    • Constant Reader

      I’m not in love with the colors –the top looks like it accidentally went through the wash with a dark load — but if she ditched it and wore the darker sweater on her hips as a top, we might have something.

      That said, she looks relaxed and like she might even be having a good time, which goes a long way toward making it all work.

    • Imasewsure

      I’d lose the waist sweater but I dig this…

    • Call me Bee

      Still dislike her more than I can say.

    • ABV

      How can we hate you,I want to Thankyou,Kristen looks fking Amazing and don’t underestimate her,she can rock a paperbag dude,luv her,KL made the perfect choice to choose her over every other female model/actress out there…Can’t wait to see her in all the fashion mags.

    • Froggae

      You may be right and this may be more fabulous than I realize, but the only reaction I can muster for her now is “ugh.” Oh, and “I’ve never wanted a celebrity to shave his/her head so much before.”

    • Sadie-Ann

      I feel like the sweatshirt around the waist is not something that should be seen outside of very informal events.

      • Jumpingjacks

        It’s not a red carpet.. and she’s basically wearing the look as the model wore it minus an extra sweater.

        If she is wearing the exact same look, I will say: A sweatshirt around the waist is not something that should be seen when already wearing such sweatshirt. At least tie something practical around your waist gheez

        • demidaemon

          Yes, but comparing her look to the the others we’ve seen from this event, it was clearly more formal than what KStew is wearing here.

    • John Bascomb Witt

      Welp. That’s not the most obviously coordinated runway photo op ever. Nope. Not. At. All. And yes I hate the pants.

    • Sam Smith

      The fact that this outfit is Chanel, makes no sense to me. But she looks comfy and chic, still can’t stand her.

    • Jacob Bowen

      Ladies! I don’t want to see your nipples ANYTIME really, but especially when you’re clothed.

    • pookiesmom

      Yikes.

    • formerlyAnon

      I like her better than most people who comment, she doesn’t bother me as she seems to bother so many. Moving on.

      I love those pants. They may be the first pair of leather pants that I have seen in ages that I could be enthused about. I will study them to recognize why some wide-legged pants have the lines and proportions to be chic and others don’t.

    • demidaemon

      I would like this more if she didn’t look so underdressed compared to everyone else. She needed a fancier top to go with the rest of that look. I’m not touching the whole elephant in the room (KStew’s continued existence) with a hundred foot pole.

    • E. D.

      Still can’t manage to wash her hair.

    • LeelaST

      What a mess.

    • CommentsByKatie

      I swear sometimes that she tries to dress purposefully ugly to be ironic and give the middle finger to us. I kind of appreciate that about her.

    • macwell

      I think i just realized why she doesn’t like t sile much – she has that Tom Cruise 2 front ‘teefs’ way off center thing going on….

    • elzatelzabelz

      I will deny it. It doesn’t suit anyone, unless you are some sort of weird auto-mechanic. And, please girl-the Hair. Bobby pins, a braid, a clip. Get it out of your face.

    • ThesisMonkey

      I’m about ready for her to get that hair out of her face.

    • p_capet

      um, yuck.

    • prettybigkitty

      Love the pants, too. Just not the obligatory wrap around sweater. Or whatever that is.

    • Aaminah Khan

      I like it, but I have to admit that I’m someone who sometimes ties sweaters around her waist as part of an outfit on purpose. *ducks thrown objects*

    • Kathy

      Up-size the sweatshirt, wear a bra, lose the attitude, clean the hair, and I’m on-board with this look.

    • Ann VerWiebe

      I wish the pants were 1/2″ shorter – but they’re leather and I’m sure Chanel was not about to hem them.

    • J. Preposterice

      I disagree, but not because there’s anything wrong with the outfit — I just think it obliterates her shape. She’s slim through the hips and doesn’t have a strongly defined waist, and she’s got loooong legs and a short torso. Although the pants work with her mile-long legs, I think the high rise + cropped top makes her look weird through the middle. The proportions are just a bit off for her. Put 3″ more on the top and shorten the rise by the same amount, and she would look SO SLAMMIN.

      She does look comfy, though. I think trousers of some form are in her wheelhouse. Sassypants. Go with the sassypants, K Stew. Take a page from K. Hep and M. Diet.

    • ConnieBV

      My grampa had a pair of pants just like these. He welded in them.

    • Fannie Wolston

      The sleeve on the right arm bugs, pushed up just to show her new ink? wtf is that anyway a tribal evil eye?

    • Cristina Okotte

      she is so cool
      this ‘hate’thing is so 2008 and only for Pattenson(or pattinson?) fans. Balenciaga and now Chanel.This girl is on fire .

      • Fannie Wolston

        I dunno about hate, maybe it’s boredom? anyway the fireman pants are good for a girl on fire

    • RuthGo

      I hate the whole thing top to bottom. Tying a sweater around your hips as part of a red carpet outfit? Just no.
