UPDATE: Images have just landed of Kristen Stewart arriving at the Balenciaga show in Paris on this chilly Thursday morning and whad'ya know? She's treated us to another dose of her low-key cool. Top marks are awarded for adding a splash of neon to all the monochrome with a yellow quilted leather jacket and check out those fierce buckled boots! Admittedly, K-Stew's choice of black-and-white flower-print legwear isn't our fave (bring back the Cannes pair, we say) and we're concerned she went sliiightly overboard on the dry shampoo. But hey, Mr Lagerfeld would be proud. Also note she's still wearing that pendant back-on boyfriend Robert Pattinson gave her. All together now: awww.
26 September 2012: The Dior show, Hedi Slimane's debut, the French fancies on the FROW... there's MUCH to look forward to from Paris Fashion Week, which kicks into action today. But there's one unexpected PFW addition that's got us reeeally excited: Ms Kristen Stewart.
The Twilight actress is set to hit the chicest of front rows when the Balenciaga show takes place on Thursday - that's tomorrow, fact fans. Surprised? Admittedly K-Stew isn't in the die-hard FROWer league inhabited by Olivia Palermo and Alexa Chung and after THAT scandal, she's been lying lower than ever - but! Let's not forget Kristen is the face of Florabotanica, Balenciaga's new fragrance, so undoubtedly it's her duty to attend. All the better for us!
As for what she'll wear, Kristen's post-scandal appearances thus far suggest she'll look as fierce as ever. And what could be better for a 'don't mess' message than lashings of black Balenciaga leather? Besides, when she's not wearing her man’s clothes, K-Stew does scrub up rather well.
Take her appearance at the Toronto Film Festival earlier this month, par exemple, when she channelled her R-Patz heartbreak into a super-slick appearance. Then she promoted On The Road in New York last week wearing a pair of killer Jimmy Choo heels with a crisp Balenciaga shirt and a towering bouffant - as well as that dainty locket which is reportedly a gift from her beloved Rob.
With Breaking Dawn: Part 2 to promote in a matter of months, Kristen will be forced back into the public eye, so we say a VIP spot in Paree is a pretty good start. But will she accessorise with her back-on boyfriend? Watch this space.
