Here are some photos of Kristen Stewart at the Chanel Metiers d’Art runway show in South Korea this week. As you can see, Kristen went for a LOOK for this show. She bleached her eyebrows and did heavy, dramatic eye makeup in black and green. Chanel gave her an interesting look too – puffy leather shorts and an open-air blouse. As much as I want to hate this, I don’t. I’ve always said that Kristen has one of those faces which can “take” really dramatic makeup. It’s still true. There’s something about her which makes this work. I have no idea if the brow-bleach was for fashion or for a movie, but I suspect it was just for fun, for fashion, for this appearance.
After all this time, are you surprised that K-Stew is still a Chanel girl? I am. She’s had a Chanel contract for years and years and the late Karl Lagerfeld was truly a fan of her look, even back when she and Chanel didn’t seem to be on the same page sartorially. Most of the Chanel muses are classic-beauty types, women who pull off the oft-times fussy and staid Chanel designs. Kristen is different – she brings her punk sensibility to Chanel and makes it look younger.
Kristen has JT LeRoy out right now, but she’ll be making a big promotional push this fall for the Charlie’s Angels reboot. I’m interested in seeing what that promo will look like.
