In related news, Kristen's stylist has spoken! Tara Swennen is the lady behind the star's style evolution, from embellished minis to dramatic gowns and a lot of Converse inbetween. Now that Kristen's career is coming to the end of a VERY exciting era, The Cut have got her stylist to reveal some intriguing styling secrets...
On K-Stew's recent red carpet numbers:
'It all stemmed from the fact that this was the end of a big chapter in her life. Twilight is coming to a close, so we wanted to do stronger looks. Just recently, she’s embraced doing the long-gown thing, so it was definitely an opportunity for me to stick as many as I could on her. We just wanted to make a grand escape, I guess, rather than a grand entrance. And through the years, she’s come into her own, and so now she’s letting me play a little bit more. I’m going from a glam moment to an androgynous moment from one carpet to the next; we like making sure that we push boundaries on every carpet.'
On those floor-sweeping gowns:
'I think it’s just time. She’s become a woman since I’ve known her. She’s a tomboy at heart (both of us are), but she understands that fashion is an arena, that she can be a chameleon and not dress the way she does every single day. She’ll always change into her Converse by halfway through a carpet, which is to be expected at this point, but she puts on the heels for me for the photos, God bless her. At the end of the day, I want my clients to be comfortable because I think it shows. She needs to put on her sneakers and that’s alright with me.'
Kristen's favourite fashion formula
On K-Stew's penchant for a trainer:
'Well, I clearly prefer a heel. I just think it photographs better. Regardless of it being any type of heel, I think it elongates the silhouette, which obviously you always wanna do, make them look taller and have that longer look. But it’s part of her personality; I think it’s fun when she does it. There are definitely times when I have to say, “Please, please, please put the heel on just for me."'
On Zuhair Murad's design:
'It really fits her silhouette. Like Balmain a few years ago, you pretty much just zip it up and it fits. He’s had some very unique pieces; as you can obviously see, we went from the lace bustier gown at the premiere to the completely sheer beaded jumpsuit in London. He really does have a lot of very exquisite pieces; it’s couture essentially. I’m drawn to it just because each look is so special, and then it’s been fitting her so elegantly. She’s worn three recently, and each one of them has been stunning. Don’t get me wrong, there are some pieces of his that she tried on that would never have worked, but these particular pieces have been amazing.'
On K-Stew's style evolution:
'It all came with embracing her womanhood. When it all started, she was 15 years old, I think, and she was a young girl, she was a young teen. Now she’s 22, and she’s a young woman. There are certain things you can pull off when you’re older that you can’t as a young teenager. She’s grown into being more comfortable on the red carpet; she’s definitely embracing elegance and gracefulness. Obviously I’ve been able to push more on her, but I think her confidence level is really the thing that’s changed the most over the years.'
On K-Stew in feminine gowns:
I’m able to get such beautiful pieces for her. There are certain silhouettes she still just gravitates toward and others that, like with any client, you have to push a little bit to take them out of their comfort zone. But she’s willing to try it on just for me, just so I can say, "Listen, this is like Christmas for me when these amazing couture pieces show up in these boxes; you have to try it on so I can see it in the flesh, and then you can take it off." But when she does that, every once in a while, she actually sees something that she hasn’t seen before and likes it, and all of a sudden we have something new that she wants to wear, which is super-exciting, so luckily for me, she likes to appease my begging.
Kristen in her 'second-skin' necklace
On K-Stew's jewels:
'Yes, her jewelry is jewelry that tends to stay on her only because it has sentimental value to her, whether it’s from friends or family, There was one bracelet [by Iwona Ludyga] that I gave her at the beginning of the tour, and she’s been wearing it a lot, it’s a red triangle. But it’s really a fluke with jewelry. I don’t even pull it at this point because I know that she’s gonna wear her personal stuff... It’s her second skin, essentially, at this point.'
On Nicolas Ghesquière leaving Balenciaga:
'I think he’s a genius. I think he did amazing stuff with the brand. Whatever he chooses to do, I think he’ll be brilliant at it, and I think they’ll choose somebody wonderful to fill his shoes. I still love the brand, I will continue to pull it, and she’ll continue to wear it. We have a wonderful relationship with Nicolas, and that won’t change either. She actually still has one more [Balenciaga.] Obviously she still has her On the Road press through the end of the year. We still have one more look that I’d love to get on her.'
