Kristen Stewart And Nike Seem Like The Perfect Pair

  • The actress is known for her love of trainers and comfortable footwear - so the rumours that she could be endorsing Nike weren't surprising

    Kristen Stewart is known for her love of casual clothes and comfy trainers.

    And while she loves to make a high-fashion statement in a gorgeous designer dress, she often pairs her fancy frocks with trainers – or at least changes into them after snapping a few pictures.

    So when we first heard rumours that Nike had chosen the well-known tomboy as its latest spokeswoman, we nodded in approval.

    It’s not just Kristen’s sporty style that would make her the perfect choice. She already has a history of promoting the brand.

    For the London premiere of Snow White And The Huntsman in 2012, the 23-year-old actress dazzled in a sheer black lace Marchesa gown.

    She paired the dress with elegant black courts for her big arrival – but famously switched to a pair of black-and-white Nikes halfway before doing red-carpet interviews.

    The early rumours had no confirmation from either Kristen or Nike – but a source told Radar Online that Nike’s pursuit of K-Stew was a strategic move. ‘The company obviously wants to broaden its base from athletes to actors, and, in particular, appeal to young women,’ their source said.

    But now Nike has spoken out to Vogue about the unverified reports.

    ‘Kristen is very talented and we’re delighted she chooses to wear Nike, but we’re not in discussions with her over an endorsement contract,’ a Nike spokesperson said.

    Well that’s settled, then. At least for now.

    The Twilight star has previously served as the face of Balenciaga and Chanel. Perhaps she’s choosing to stick with high-end luxury brands for the foreseeable future.
