Oh, how we cheered when Kristen Stewart amped up her sartorial game after becoming a Balenciaga girl. Kick-started by her role as the face of the brand's fragrance, the actress went on an impressive style trajectory - who could forget that killer cut-out bodice top and tailored trouser combo? In fact, Kristen admitted that the reason she ever became interested in fashion was because of then creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière. So now that Ghesquière is out of the picture, it looks like Kristen is turning to another Parisian brand for fashion guidance - and where better to go than Chanel?
K-Stew made a surprise appearance on the house's FROW when the Couture collection showed in the French capital this morning. She added to the impressive star wattage, taking a seat alongside Michael Pitt, Vanessa Paradis and Rose Byrne while Rihanna sat across the catwalk. Admittedly, Kristen didn't look, err, terribly riveted by Karl's offering, but she certainly did look fierce. R-Pattz, who?
Her hair looked more black than auburn and was slicked back into a messy plait while her eye makeup was typically smokey with a hint of blue shimmer in the inner corners. It's an attitude-y approach to the classic Chanel look and we wouldn't expect anything less.
But it was when the actress posed alongside Karl Lagerfeld himself that the uncanniness really struck us. Has Kristen been raiding the Kaiser's wardobe? Black fingerless gloves? Check. Chunky silver chains? Check. A monochrome-only palette? Check, check, check! Add sunnies, a tie and a dollop of dry shampoo and she could be Karl's mini-me. We don't know how Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel would feel about Kristen's rock chick styling of the classic tweed jacket, but we're sure Karl is delighted.
