Two-thousand sixteen was the year Kristen Stewart was finally recognized as a Great Actress. She won a César (the first American to do so) and she had not one but three films entered in the New York Film Festival (the first actress to do so). Woody Allen loves her; so too, apparently, does Olivier Assayas. This year is already shaping up to be Stewart’s year yet again — on Thursday night, her second outing with Assayas, Personal Shopper, debuted at the Metrograph theater on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. She has two more films on the slate — the Lizzie Borden period drama Lizzie with Chloë Sevigny, and the action thriller Underwater with T.J. Miller.
And just as Kristen Stewart has earned increasing acclaim among cinephiles, she’s also a rising star in the fashion world. Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld adopted the actress as his muse; she’s appeared in numerous campaigns for the brand, including, most recently, a spot alongside Cara Delevingne, Caroline de Maigret, and Pharrell Williams. Naturally, Lagerfeld also outfits Stewart for each and every red carpet outing — and, making a label historically known for its tweed her own with every occasion, Stewart never fails to disappoint. (Even if, sometimes, it involves taking a pair of fabric shears to a couture t-shirt.) Her Metrograph appearance was no exception.
Who: Kristen Stewart.
When: Thursday, March 9.
Where: The premiere of Personal Shopper at the Metrograph Theater in New York, New York.
What: A blush-pink halter gown with a sweater neck and pockets from the Chanel Pre-Fall 2017 collection with a dark eye and her newly buzz-cut bleach blonde hair.
Why: At the Chanel Métiers d’arts show, this dress was presented with matching arm warmers, a Pepto-pink knit scarf, and white oxford shoes. That, evidently, is not quite KStew’s speed — she opts for a far simpler look, foregoing all the embellishments. It’s a bit more elevated than the mall goth-inspired couture she’s plucked off the runway in the past — especially considering the low-key environment at Metrograph, where Personal Shopper premiered — but she still wears it with her trademark casual confidence.
