WHO: Kristen Stewart WHERE & WHEN: Paris Haute-Couture Fashion Week: CHANEL - Spring/Summer 2015 Presentation on January 27, 2015. WEARING: Head-to-toe Chanel with a Jillian Dempsey Fine Jewelry necklace. MY VERDICT: Kristen exuded cool confidence when she arrived for the Chanel Spring/Summer 2015 fashion show, held during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week this morning in Paris, France. The 24-year-old "Still Alice" actress showed off her legs in a structured white sleeveless dress from the Spring/Summer 2015 Ready-to-Wear collection that features black piping throughout. This was originally presented with a jacket over it, so it was nice to see the dress in full. The styling was kept relaxed and daytime appropriate with a pair of black leather lace up oxford booties from the Fall 2014 collection with a wood platform and heel. Interestingly, Kristen hasn't worn Chanel shoes at past shows for the fashion house.
WHO: Dakota Johnson WHERE & WHEN: 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards on January 11, 2015. WEARING: Chanel Haute Couture dress, Jimmy Choo shoes, a Rauwolf clutch & Chanel Fine Jewelry. MY VERDICT: Dakota upgraded from gray to silver when she hit the red carpet for the Golden Globes wearing shimmering Chanel. The "Fifty Shades of Grey" star selected the metallic sequin bustier gown from the Fall-Winter 2014 Haute Couture Collection; an embroidered strapless bodice attached to a molten slinky skirt featuring a sultry front split to show off a lot of leg--and her dainty matching heels. If you read my annual Golden Globes Wish List then you know I was hoping to see this dress.
WHO: Kristen Stewart WHERE & WHEN: Paris Haute-Couture Fashion Week: CHANEL - Fall/Winter 2014-2015 Presentation on July 8, 2014. WEARING: (Front Row) Chanel top pants, and jewelry, Christian Louboutin shoes & Jillian Dempsey jewelry.; (Leaving) Chanel top, pants, and hat, Christian Louboutin shoes, and jewelry from Chanel Fine Jewelry and Jillian Dempsey. MY VERDICT: Kristen seriously surprised on-lookers when she arrived for the Chanel Autumn/Winter 2014 fashion show presentation, held during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week today. Why? Isn't it obvious? The "Clouds of Sils Maria" actress chopped off her hair! The 24-year-old beauty debuted a shaggy cropped coif that still held much of the orange-red color she's been sporting since production of her last film. I have to admit that I already love it! As much as I liked her longer locks, I've always thought Kristen should try a shorter 'do--and she certainly pulls it off.
WHO: Kristen Stewart WHERE & WHEN: "Clouds of Sils Maria" Premiere during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival on May 23, 2014. WEARING: Chanel Haute Couture jumpsuit, Christian Louboutin shoes & Chanel Fine Jewelry. MY VERDICT: Kristen returned to the Cannes Film Festival for the second time tonight to celebrate the "Clouds of Sils Maria" premiere. Fresh off of a jet from shooting a movie in New Orleans, which caused her to miss the photocall this afternoon, the 24-year-old--and face of the latest Chanel campaign--walked the red carpet in a shimmering iridescent sequin-embroidered, nude lace sleeveless jogger jumpsuit from the Spring/Summer 2014 Haute Couture collection by the French fashion house. The designer didn't come as a surprise, but the outfit sure did.
WHO: Kristen Stewart WHERE & WHEN: Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala - "Charles James: Beyond Fashion" on May 5, 2014. WEARING: Chanel Haute Couture dress, Christian Louboutin shoes & Chanel Fine Jewelry. MY VERDICT: It's been a long time since we've seen Miss Stewart on the red carpet--since last year's MET Ball, in fact--and it seems that her ability to pull off an unconventional look has not waned. As the face of the CHANEL Métiers d'Art Paris-Dallas collection, the 24-year-old actress arrived wearing a look from the Spring/Summer 2014 Haute Couture collection, naturally. Kristen selected the long sleeve, tea-length black dress featuring an opened back completely embroidered with gold sequins that continue to gleam throughout her tea length sheer tulle skirt sitting beneath a full feathered skirt and sparkling corseted waist.
