From her edgy mini to slip-on Vans, K-Stew looked stunning! Find out how they decided on her get-up.
Kristen Stewart may be most comfortable in a pair of skinny jeans and Converse sneakers, but when she gets all dressed up she looks effortlessly chic, just like she did last night on Jun. 5 at the MTV Movie Awards. We got the chance to catch up with Kristen’s longtime stylist, Tara Swennen. The talented woman behind the edgy Balmain on Kristen that left us breathless last night said the dress seemed to be made for the star!
“It was like Christmas taking that dress out of the box, it fit her without needing a stitch of alternations. Kristen is very willing to push the boundaries. Most people would shudder at the thought of a complete safety pin and red leather dress, but she really has an adventurous side and she loved it the moment she saw it. We were both very drawn to it and the moment we zipped it up and saw how amazing her body looked, it was perfect. It was like it was made for her,” Tara said.
Aside from the fit of the frock, Tara said the style of the Balmain strapless was also consistent with Kristen’s look. “To be honest, I have wanted her in Balmain for years, we just haven’t been able to find the right dress for her. I think it’s a great brand for her and it compliments her personality.” If anyone would know K-Stew’s look, it’s Tara — the LA based stylist has been working with the star since she was 15-years-old!
Kristen looked stunning on the red carpet, pairing the dress with Christian Louboutin‘s, but she looked just as chic when she slipped into a pair of Vans before taking the stage. Her fans love how she stays true to her stellar sense of style — and so does her stylist!
“I want her to be comfortable, and she manages to pull off the look so well. God bless her for even putting the heels on for just a minute. We looked over all of her sneakers and decided that the Vans were the best ones to wear. They were easy to slip on and they didn’t have laces — going up and down the steps can be difficult and I want her to be comfortable and feel great.”
While Kristen is a red carpet pro, the star is as easy-going as one would expect. “When she feels really good in something it shows — you can tell by the way she’s standing that she’s really happy.”
Kristen may have a penchant for minis on the red carpet, but everyday she prefers keeping it casual in jeans and a basic tee. “Day to day she is a jeans and Converse girl,” Tara said. She loves plaid shirts, her Ray-Bans, and tank tops, her style is very effortless — she’s a laid-back girl.”
While K-Stew has mastered her personal sense of style, she’s likely to be hard at work on set than hitting the mall. “She’s more of the ‘vintage shopping on the weekend’ type than anything else,” Tara said.
Whether she’s dressed down in jeans or all done up in a glam get-up, there’s no denying the fact that all eyes are on Kristen.
