Kristen Stewart brings Chanel’s short shorts to the red carpet
For eight years that Kristen Stewart has been a Chanel ambassador, the Spencer the star has mastered wearing the brand in her own way. As one of France’s most revered houses, Chanel is known for its chic and classic ensembles, but Stewart and her stylist Tara Swennen aren’t shy. The actress’ red carpet looks adhere to the same avant-garde sensibility as her off-duty wardrobe, so everything she packed for her trip to the Venice Film Festival was meant to get people talking. Today, when she arrived by water taxi for her photocall with director Pablo Larraín, Stewart did not disappoint.
As the only guest at Chanel’s Métiers d’Art Paris-Château des Dames show in December, Stewart got a first glimpse of the entire collection. Dressed in a Chanel jumpsuit with cropped legs so high they looked like hot pants, Stewart continued her habit of selecting the most daring pieces from Virginie Viard’s catwalk. The black tweed jumpsuit with metallic details on the pockets and oversized double buttons was precisely the kind of trendy fashion she gravitated towards. With her freshly dyed blonde locks and a gold Coco Crush ring completing the look, Stewart was all smiles when she took the stage.
Later that day, Stewart took another risky look, arriving at by Spencer first in seafoam green briefs and short lace pants from Chanel Haute Couture. The pastel boudoir moment was unexpected, but it’s hard to top these shorts. A welcome throwback to the extreme silhouettes of the now classic Chanel collections like Spring / Summer 1994 and Spring / Summer 2007, Stewart’s jumpsuit was one of the most standout outfits of the ceremony so far.
