Fugger: Kristen Stewart

Fugs and Fabs: Everyone at the Chanel 2015/16 Cruise Collection


You guys, this means that SWINTON and K Stew have met. I feel like this could lead only to good things.

Well Played, Kristen Stewart in Harper’s Bazaar UK


You’ve probably read about this interview with Kristen Stewart – it’s the one where she says she met a lot of “soul-sucking, cut-throat fashion people,” and that filming sex scenes for Twilight was agony (that quote’s been taken out of context a lot) — and it’s worth a read. But mostly, I think this shoot is worth a thank you note. I was REALLY doubtful about this Chanel partnership, and still have some trepidation about her red carpet looks, but she has been photographing beautifully in it (the ad she did for their new bag is awesome).

Fugs of Sils Maria: Kristen Stewart


Lately, ol’ Stewie has been doing a nice job wearing stuff that seems more organic to her personality — stuff where she, at least, seems comfortable in the clothes, as opposed to strapped inside of them.

Not so much here:

Those pants are really pretty awkward. And while I get that the black tube top is probably there in aid of nippular modesty (sure, let’s invent “nippular”), it somehow comes off more like they’re being blindfolded and/or fell into a hunter’s trap. Nothing about this is particularly self-assured — I was unlikely to buy it regardless, but she isn’t doing much selling, either — and the vibe it therefore creates is one of, “My grandmother bought this for me for Easter and Mom said I HAD to wear it or else I would make BOTH of them cry and so hopefully emotional blackmail is hot for spring.”

Fug or Fab the Ad: Kristen Stewart for Chanel


Here’s the thing:

chanel-3girls-3bags-kristen-stewart-11-12

I don’t know if Kristen Stewart is the first actress who pops into mind when I think “sexy French business lady.” However, she might be SELLING ME “sexy French business lady” here. Because when I saw this photo, I did not think, “why is K Stew dressed like she’s off to go star on the French version of The Good Wife?” I thought, “ooh, I love that hair.” You guys, that hair would make most people look like they inadvertently had their head sucked into the automatic hand-dryer in the ladies room. And I’ve never seen K Stew in a proper suit before, and would never think of her as being a person who would ever even put a suit anywhere near her body. HOWEVER. This ad makes me think that maybe she should, even if that means she’s somehow going to need to magick a way to live in a wholly black and white world, like the beginning of The Wizard of Oz forever. Because I sort of think this entire endeavor just might be….successful? (The bag, of course, is a classic. I am not a Quilted Chanel Bag Person, and even I realize that this bag is a classic.)

Hit me with your thinkpieces, please.

Fugs or Fabs: Kristen Stewart in Chanel


While we were prepping for and then covering the Oscars, Kristen Stewart was off in Paris winning a Cesar Award. (That’s basically the French Academy Award; she is the first American actress to ever win one, for Clouds of Sils Maria. Between that, and the accolades she’s getting for Still Alice, this year has been very good for her career. [The story to which I just linked also told me that K Stew's dad is the stage manager for ABC's Oscars pre-show, a factoid I love for some reason.])

Fugs and Fabs: Celebs at Couture Week, Part II


Kris Jenner was also there, but we already covered her because…well, that was DEFCON 1 of fug. It needed to be addressed immediately.
