While Kristen Stewart celebrates her birthday Marie Claire honours her fashion choices
Kristen Stewart celebrates her birthday today (Tuesday) so Marie Claire thought it only fitting to pay homage to the 23-year-old’s very specific sense of style that doesn’t play by the rules! From wearing Converse on the red carpet to sharing her boyfriend’s Robert Pattinson’s clothes, there’s no one else who’s shaken up celebrity dressing the way Kristen has.
Not convinced? Just hear from some of fashion’s finest then. Julien Macdonlad recently dubbed the actress’ look ‘iconic’ saying: ‘I like girls like Kristen Stewart, she is an amazing woman. Iconic. When she started wearing my clothes it was amazing!’
Not even her decision to cover her stunning Osman Yousefzada two piece in green gunge at the Kid’s Choice Awards last month could raise a well-arched fashion eyebrow. Osman reacted by saying it was ‘incredible’ that she’d worn his clothes and that she looked ‘stunning’.
The birthday girl’s stylist Tara Swennen also believes the star has something special even admiring her resistance to wear heels saying: ‘It’s part of her personality; I think it’s fun when she does it [wears trainers on the red carpet]. There are definitely times when I have to say, “Please, please, please put the heel on just for me.”‘
And while Kristen Stewart enjoys a relaxed approach to her wardrobe, even she has been romanced by the charms of style. She said: ‘With high fashion you feel like you’re really telling a story. It’s part of a concept, it evokes a feeling. It can bring things out of it you couldn’t expect. You can unlock yourself.’
Whether inadvertently or not, Kristen keeps all eyes on her fashion choices be it swapping her shoes at film openings, changing out of Zuhair Murad jumpsuit almost immediately after the Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere in London or owning three of the same Balenciaga jackets at £1,625 each – you can’t deny we still want to know what she’s going to do next.
And that’s makes her one of style’s most interesting stars.
Happy birthday Kristen!
