Miss Kristen had herself a hell of a 24 hours on the style front yesterday. We expected that she would acquit herself well during Cannes, and that she would give us much to talk about regarding her relationship with Chanel. But even we were surprised by the drop-dead chicness of these two looks. Girlfriend outdid herself.

We think a big part of why we respond so well to this look is that it doesn’t look remotely easy to pull off. The dress would look downright goofy in most instances. But it’s on the right wearer and she’s styled perfectly in response to it. The dress already had an edge to it, but the counter-intuitive hair and makeup choices really help turn it into what the fashion folk like to call A Moment.
And then she outdid herself again.

That’s not A Moment that’s a goddamn fashion MIC DROP.
We realize this look isn’t for everyone, but it couldn’t be more right for her, for this setting, and for modeling Chanel. She looks not just amazing, but unlike pretty much anyone else walking that Cannes red carpet this week. There have been a lot of really fabulous takes on the ladytux this past year, but this is the most modern and appealingly interpretive of the lot. LOVE IT.
