Embroiled in the biggest celebrity scandal of the year, model Liberty Ross - aka the woman whose husband Kristen Stewart was caught kissing on-camera - has faced the music over the past few days in some serious style. They say that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned – but Liberty seems to be channelling all her energy into a kick-ass wardrobe of spike heels, figure hugging skirts and has even been seen wearing an oversized crucifix by Lanvin.
Of course Liberty has never exactly been a wallflower in the sartorial stakes – just check out the racy see-thru sequinned gown by Tom Ford that she wore for the Snow White & The Huntsman (the film that both she and Stewart starred in and her husband Rupert Sanders directed) premiere in the gallery above. But there is definitely a marked difference in her style attitude.
Pictured for the first time since the scandal broke earlier this week in a chic navy suit with her wedding ring pointedly absent from her fourth finger, Liberty immediately made it clear she wasn’t going to play the victim. Yesterday’s outfit complete with platform ankle boots, super-tight pencil-skirt and a Lanvin crucifix necklace went even further to confirm that she meant business – with reports that she has met with lawyers to discuss a potential divorce from her love-cheat hubby.
Contrast her vixen-like looks this week from the pretty lace dress she wore on the red carpet last month or the sunny Stella McCartney frock she sported earlier in the year. In a world where pictures speak volumes, Liberty’s style background is proving extremely valuable – powerful and supremely chic, Liberty is holding her head up high. You go girl.
