Fugger: Kristen Stewart

Fug or Fab the Cover: Kristen Stewart on T

In case you were wondering if the 90s are well and truly back, the answer is yes. Yes, they are. This could have run as a CK One ad:


That is not a complaint. It is just an observation. Another one: I am really into the totally effed up hair on Kristen Stewart. I would look like I had just rolled out of bed after three days with norovirus if I did this with my hair, but it works with her general aesthetic.  Leaning into that crabby, disaffected vibe she gives off sometimes — although, for what it’s worth, I don’t think she is disaffected; if anything, and the interview with T bears this out, I think she’s very affected by things — has been really smart for her, stylistically speaking. The sparkly mini-skirt thing she did while she was in Twilight was often quite cute, but this feels a lot more genuine. (Don’t tell anyone, but I also confess to loving a sweater dress. Although I prefer that no one be able to see my granny panties when I’m wearing one.)

Speaking of genuine, I also thought she handled questions about her personal life well. For example:

Only recently has she been open to a conversation about her romantic life, let alone her sexuality. “I would never talk about any of my relationships before, but once I started dating girls it seemed like there was an opportunity to represent something really positive,” she says. “I still want to protect my personal life, but I don’t want to seem like I’m protecting the idea, so that does sort of feel like I owe something to people.”

That would be a hard line to walk. I am a total nosy gossip and I always want to know about people’s personal lives — from celebrities to the people who live across the street to the lady at the deli counter the other day who turned to me and announced, “I’M GETTING A DIVORCE,” to the lady at the deli counter the day before that who ordered three pounds of lox, and when I (cheerfully) said, “that’s a lot of lox,” rolled her eyes and said, “all she eats is lox. IT’S INSANE” — but I get why a celebrity would want to keep that on lockdown. Once you start using your personal life for PR, the public gets annoyed when you change your mind about doing that, which is unfair but understandable. But if you start to feel like being private as a choice to protect yourself has started to make it look more like you’re trying to hide something, I can see where you might make the choice to open the door to people. It’s kind of a thorny issue. How far should you open the door?

WTF: Kristen Stewart in Chanel at the Cafe Society Premiere

Let me just say, first of all, that Kristen Stewart has turned into a much more interesting person than I would have anticipated, say, eight years ago when Twilight came out.  Plenty of actors ended up in buzzy films in 2008 and have fallen off the radar entirely — a squizz through our archives proves that, if nothing else — and while I think that K Stew is decent in the Twilight films, I’m not sure they did her justice, and as a way of introducing her to the world at large, I think they (for a while) overshadowed her skills (and her otherwise interesting taste in projects). I don’t think she was wrong to take that part — it made her a huge star, and it made her enough money that she can basically take whatever parts she wants from now on.

That musing aside, I have to note that she looks BONKERS in this Chanel number:

Amazon & Lionsgate With The Cinema Society Host The New York Premiere Of "Cafe Society" - Arrivals

I blame Karl Lagerfeld for this totally, obviously. It’s very evocative — a dash of Miss Havisham, a teaspoon of dominatrix, a giant handful of WTF — and it’s certainly not boring. It’s so not-boring, in fact, that it took me twenty minutes to realize that what I was seeing on her thighs were the inner-locking Cs of the Chanel logo, and not something written on the step-and-repeat behind her. Yes, for a whole I was trying to figure out how it was possible that Kristen Stewart, as a corporeal being, became partially transparent. I told you she was interesting.

Fugs and Fabs: Kristen Stewart

Somewhere, I feel like SWINTON just looked at this — and by “somewhere,” I mean “probably in a tree house in as-yet undiscovered Scottish forest that exists outside of normal human longitude but still gets decent WiFi” — and nodded with approval.

Kristen Stewart Leaving Her Hotel In NYC

I’D look like a dumb-ass in this, mostly because I’d spill all over it immediately, but she looks cool and groovy and interesting. Points for sunglasses and a red lip, both of which go a long way toward making me like anything.

She wore this on Fallon last night:

What the Fug: Kristen Stewart in Jonathan Simkhai

This ostensibly artsy dress is more of a Rorschach test from Satan’s own inkwell.

Kristen Stewart

I say that because when I look at it, I don’t see a house, or a dog, or even a face. I see only a screaming pelvic vortex feeding on itself.

Fuglight: Kristen Stewart in Preen

I can’t help but feel this was foisted upon her.

Kristen Stewart

And no, it’s not because she isn’t smiling (she was perfectly cheery in other shots; just none that showed the entire outfit). Rather, it’s because Kristen Stewart — especially with that hair — seems edgier than this. Sheer for the sake of sheer is a bland, passé eye-roll at this point; Stew seems a lot more rock and roll than a dress I would classify as Britney Spears Gets Married Again In Las Vegas Because She Lost A Bet.

Fug or Fab: Kristen Stewart in Chanel

I know, I know. I should NOT approve of a strapless leather tube dress, BUT I CAN’T HELP IT:


I just think she looks cool. Is it the stellar red lipstick? Am I really that easy? Wait, don’t answer that.
