Now, let’s talk about her look tonight for the ‘Schiaparelli And Prada: Impossible Conversations’ Costume Institute Gala.
I dig it. Yeah, I said it. If you don’t, you can do either one of two things…continue reading as to why I love it — or bounce out now.
As the face of Balenciaga ‘s newest parfum, the 22-year-old actress made her red carpet debut in a Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière color-blocked leather and silk embroidered dress from the Fall 2012 collection.
She arrived at the Metropolitan Museum of Art as the guest of head-designer Ghesquière.
Kristen wore a strapless cocktail dress with a silver and black snake print wool jacquard v-neck bodice. Between the bodice and her knee-length, blue leather pencil skirt were two color-block leather inserts in red and dark purple. The center colors were modified slightly from the original dress.
While I could see it more for a premiere or photocall, it still worked. Although, I think if it had been customized into a full-length column gown with a slit up the back, it might’ve been even better for this particular fête.
Kristen kept her nails nearly bare in Chanel “Beige” polish and rocked smokey eyes with a thick black top liner as gorgeous cascading waves fell over her shoulders.
She finished off her look with black “Bobine” heels from the collection that were thickly laced with white strips all the way up to her ankle. These were the same shoes seen with the dress on the runway, so I’m not surprised that she wore them.
Do I have another preference? Sure! But, these weren’t bad.
One thing is for sure — she’s definitely a “Balenciaga girl”! Kristen embodies the brand.
So now that you’ve heard my thoughts, tell me YOURS! What did you think of Kristen’s look tonight?
