Love It Or Leave It: Kristen Stewart’s Tuxedo-Style Premiere Look?

Rachel Krause / June 2, 2012

Kristen Stewart has become somewhat of an unwilling fashion plate in the past few years, what with her red carpet ubiquity and relationship with Balenciaga, but I don’t always agree with her sartorial choices. She’s never photographed off-duty in anything but Converse, jeans, and a T-shirt, so I often find her event looks kind of contrived given that she seems so uncomfortable, like she has no idea why she’s where she is, wearing whatever she’s wearing. I will give her credit, though: she actually cracked a smile at this week’s LA screening of “Snow White And The Huntsman,” no small feat for a girl who usually looks like she’s about to cry. Nevertheless, I feel terribly ambivalent about the Stella McCartney ensemble she went for. A high, buttoned neck like this is flattering on next to nobody, but I think it could have worked on Kristen had she skipped the stuffy jacket. She looked fabulous at all of her Cannes appearances and while I prefer to see her in those opulent dresses with her hair down, this is probably the kind of outfit she feels more “herself” in, and I can’t argue with that. What do you think: is Kristen rocking this buttoned-up, slightly androgynous look?
