Kristen Stewart promotes Balenciaga in Paris: lovely and cool, or just grim?

Jesus, I love those leather pants. I want those. But I couldn’t pull them off. I’m too old and I’m not skinny and leggy enough for them. These are new photos of Kristen Stewart once again in Paris – hopefully she won’t flip the bird on this trip. Since Kristen is the new face of Balenciaga, one of her duties is to show up at the Balenciaga show during Paris Fashion Week. I’m assuming she’s wearing head-to-toe Balenciaga. Dislike the blouse, the jacket is… odd. But the pants!!! I’m still not sold on the idea of Kristen fronting a major fashion campaign, but I’m glad to see her fulfilling her duties without her usual eye-rolls and lip-bites. Hopefully, she’s growing in confidence, or she’s just learning how to carry herself with more professionalism. Also: Sparkles didn’t join Kristen for this trip to Paris. She’s flying solo in Paris! Epic.

Kristen was most recently in LA over Oscar weekend – she and Robert Pattinson both put in some appearances at various industry parties. By all accounts, they were completely and utterly loved up and affectionate all over the place. Some people (Twihards) were surprised that neither Sparkles nor Kristen presented at the Oscars – although those people (Twihards) also think that Kristen and Rob specifically avoided the Oscars because Breaking Dawn didn’t get nominated for anything. For real. Like, some people thought it would get nominated for an OSCAR. Honestly, though – I would have loved to have seen one or both of them at the Oscars. There should have been more younger acctors invited to present this year. Everything felt so dated, so early 2000s.

One last thing – the new poster for On the Road. Is this movie going to suck? I’m kind of worried that the book is simply un-adaptable.

    those pants look uncomfortable and not really attractive. I think of that unfortunate phase in my life where I liked pleather pants. sweaty.

  2. trollontheloose says:

    yeah for the pants nope for the shoes..

    • Sloane Wyatt says:

      She looks great in the leather pants, and I think Kristin Stewart is made for high fashion. BUT, I also think she needs to cool it on the getting high. A vacant stoned look will hurt her career and reputation. Maybe she doesn’t care about either, since Kristin has plenty of loot now. Pity.

  3. JustJen says:

    Seriously? What is Balenciaga thinking? None of the TwiTwits can afford their line. She isn’t high fashion, she isn’t rocker chic, she’s just blah. And she makes their clothes look blah. Bad move.

  4. RockAndi says:

    Love the pants.. Hate the roots.

  5. podzol says:

    Outfit? I’m too busy staring at the unwashed hair.

  6. normades says:

    I for one want to see On the Road and that Snow White thingy, so KStew looks like she’ll be around for awhile.

  7. Hanna says:

    The shoes reminds me of Naruto, I dont care for the blouse, but that jacket is fug!!! and she looks tired. Go to bed girl!

  8. Tapioca says:

    Love the trousers, hate everything above the waist. Balenciaga make extrovert clothing that you need a certain “something” to pull off – and head-down, lip-biting, pot-smoking apathy is not it!

  9. Nev says:


    so much hot new MODELS and they choose her.

  10. ramona says:

    I HATE what she’s wearing. But if someone paid me a few hundred grand to wear it, I’d probably have a big smile on my face.

    Really, I think she’s got an amazing figure, and that blouse makes her look round.

  11. Jade says:

    I’m always taken aback by how pretty Kristen is. I’m very excited to see were her career goes after twilight. Will she go back to the indie world Or will she strike a balance between Indie and mainstream.
    Out of all her peers I think her career Path will be the most interesting to watch.

  12. Gala says:

    Hmmm…I have no strong feeling about Kstew one way or the other, but that 1st picture is definitely making me feel a little bicurious all of a sudden.

  13. katie says:

    Ahh, shes so boring and plain looking. She can’t act. Don’t see what the fuss is over her.

  14. The Original Mia says:

    Not a fan of leather pants, regardless of the brand & cost. Sweaty coochie.

    Sullen has taken to those extensions like a duck to water. Since they were put in, I don’t think I’ve seen her with a different hair style. Bizarre.

  15. Kate says:


    The third picture of K-stew, a girl in the background with her brown hair in a ponytail, with the pink scarf kind of looks like Jennifer Lawrence….sizing K-stew up like bitch pleaseeeee.

    Random observation!

  16. eileen says:

    She looks like a bored corpse.

    • DreamyK says:

      For someone who kind of shuns the fame thing, this is an odd move for her. Clearly she doesn’t need the money, so why is she pimping clothes?

      She looks like she hates what she’s wearing. Women that love the outfit that they are wearing project a sort of glow and confidence that Kris is not exhibiting.

      • emma says:

        “For someone who kind of shuns the fame thing”

        She wants fame. She’s doing this to ensure she remains relevant after Twilight is done.

      • carolina says:

        I don’t think all women react identically when they are wearing something they love. And these are just a few pictures. There’s a bunch of her at the show smiling and giggling and happy.

        I think she took the campaign personally cause it helps cement her as an adult and a star since twilight is about to end and she’s shouldering movies on her own now.

      • eileen says:

        I can’t see one ounce of personality in this girl. I love seeing girls making it not on looks alone-but she doesn’t have any redeeming qualities from what I can see. Maybe I’m being harsh-but mouth-breathing/lip-biting, eye-rolling and complaining while the whole world is your oyster will come back to bite you at some point. Brands&Hollywood give chances based on your name and celebrity, but if you don’t do anything with that-you’re toast.

  17. nina says:

    Love all the pieces on her. I don’t know if I would have paired them together, but overall it looks great on her. She’s got a model body in the sense she’s all legs and a short torso, so clothes usually look great on her.

  18. Maripily says:

    I think she is very beautiful. I like her bored, sleepy eyed look, sometimes I get so tired of all these young starlets with their wide eyes and cheesy grins. I like the pants too, with an edgier top. I’m slender enough to wear those pants, but I’m not young enough. I’m 36 now…those pants would look to try hard on a woman my age.

    • Funnylilou says:

      the trick of these pants is that theY can be sported by a lot of women contrary to what appears, here in Paris theSe are a very popular hit for few years now, and you see even mature women sporting and by mature I mean late 40′s/50′s so you still pretty young…;D

      But the thing is how to wear them, for your age you can pair it with a more contemporary blouse not into the pants but on it, no too long, a nice blazer paired with a very chic pair of pumps you would kill ! add some cool accessories and you would have a cool outfit and age appropriate (my aunt who is 47 rock them like nobody else, also she is very slim and fit!!)

      don’t limit yourself !!:D

  19. Ro says:

    She looks great and considering she’s worn the brand in the past (and has looked amazing in it), I think it’s a great fit – and just think of all the press they’re going to get once she starts promoting her movies again.

  20. Sunshine says:

    I think she looks amazing. Her eyebrows and make-up look really fresh and pretty here. I love the open toe shoes with the pants, she kind of reminds me of what Victoria Beckham has been wearing lately. Love her, and I’m excited for OTR and the Snow White movie!

  21. mucha says:

    I’m glas someone put her in pants becuse that’s real her, and not those dresses she doesn’t fell comfortable in.

  22. Jess says:

    They’re going to ruin that magnificent book!!!

  23. Natalie says:

    The shoes are absolutely fug.

  24. smileyface says:

    she is really beautiful i love her shes my favorite. i don’t get what everyone here has against her, she just choses to be more interested in her work than her PR, i think its cool. and she really is a good actress and is doing really well post twilight. i saw a shot of her as mary lou she looked amazing. so excited about this movie i can not wait sh*it!

  25. Elena says:

    I like her. But she looks sort of creepy here. Downright creepy, actually.

  26. vanessa says:

    She makes the clothes look horrible, they look cheap and ill-fitted, not to mention her awful awful awful hair, posture, look on her face – I have no idea why a high end fashion house would pick her to represent ANYTHING….. AWKWARD.

  27. Linney says:

    Is she leaving a heroin den in this picture? Jesus, she looks sick and unbathed.

  28. tessa says:

    What’s with people always saying her hair is dirty? Her hair looks fine, just wind swept and not overly styled.

    I don’t really get the intensity of some commenters here with her.

  29. Rose says:

    Slimy, Oily, Greasy.
    Depressed and Depressing.
    I can’t stand this angsty girl. I just need to go to my local mall to see this sight, there’s no need for her to be plastered on ads and movies. I’ve been over this.

  30. marlee says:

    I have such a love/hate relationship with KStew. I have to admit, I read all the Twilight books and have seen all the movies (many, many times.) They are a guilty pleasure. I almost love how terrible they are. And Kristen…. she is so, SO bad in them (Lautner is the worst in my opinion.) But for some reason, I want SO bad to like her.

    I think she is a very pretty girl, so I like that. But then I get mad at her because so often, she looks revolting. Why not just try, a little? What’s the harm?

    I want to like her whole down to earth, aloof, angsty vibe that she puts off… but then I get mad, because I feel like there’s so much Try going into it. Why work so hard to make it look like you’re not working hard???

    I don’t know. Still love/hate. Same with the outfit. Love the pants. Hate the top/shoes.

  31. Madison says:

    No she does not look good those in those high waisted leather pants they are pretty fug, maybe if she was taller it it would look better, the top is nice though.

  32. kristipistol says:

    Seriously, the girl needs to get into shoes. The pants suck too.

  33. Blue says:

    Interesting that posters I have never seen always pop up for Kstew posts and gush over her. She is an average looking girl, prettier when she smiles and I haven’t watched anything she’s been except panic room(?) so I can’t judge her acting. I don’t get the fuss over her.

  34. Dibba says:

    I saw her in “The Panic Room” with Jodie Foster. She spent most of the movie in a diabetic coma…

  35. Stacy Dresden says:

    Breaking Dawn was one of the worst films I have ever seen in my life. It was cheesy and ludicrous although I’m not sure my expectations were dashed, considering I’d read the source material.

    I like her because she seems to be willing to take risks in choosing which films to take on. As for her looks, I guess I’m on board…that overly ‘Shopped W Magazine cover absolutely took my breath away.

  36. sarah says:

    Did she dye her hair? It looks darker. The outfit is ok. I also like the pants, but not the shoes.

  37. shailee says:

    she looks beautiful, I find it funny that here you gyus always put pictures of her looking mad, there are plenty of pictures where she is smiling. They chose her because she is not your typical starlett that you guys want her to be, she is herself and her fans love her for it, stop hating on her for no damn reason

  38. mel says:

    I like the outfit…I bet it looks a lot cuter in person. She looks tired…like didn’t she just land in Paris a few hours ago…it seemed that way. Either way – I have major figure envy!

  39. Camille (The original) says:

    Love the pants. Hate the top. I like her hair that long too, very pretty.

  40. Lili says:

    .I think she is a beautiful girl, but I saw way better pics on popsugar….Anyway, Kaiser’s Kristen Stewart Jennifer Lawrence piece was interesting to me…Lawrence is way more talented, but I do think Stewart has something…She’s better than Emma Watson, I’ll give her that…Also, unlike Kaiser I don’t find Lawrence attractive at all…She’s got great hair and a killer body but her face…Well, I think Jennifer Lawrence has no definition in her face…I saw those pics with her boyfriend and she, to be frank, looked straight up unattractive…Stewart, on the other hand, I think is way more beautiful than Lawrence but her hair looks like shit half the time and while she’s got a good body, she is always slouching…Anyway, just my analysis…I think both girls will be around and probably A/B list, but I do think Jennifer Lawrence will be the one with the Oscar like Kaiser said.

  41. akku says:

    Sorry ,she cannot carry this dress. The dress is wearing her. She neither has the pulling power or confidence to wear this dress. After all she is not Emma Watson or Dakota Fanning who can model these dresses with ease. They are quite natural with it. Kristen is awkward in these dresses

  42. taksi says:

    Isn’t she naturally blondish? i wish she’d go back to that (though she would then be virtually indistinguishable from Teresa palmer) or at least a warmer shade of brown.

  43. Noi says:

    pants look off i never say baggy skin tight pants before the fabric gathering at the waist is blah
    I like the blouse but it doesn’t go well with the pant’s nor the jacket
    to me she always looks stoned out

  44. Boo says:

    Girl always looks like she wants to cut a bitch.

  45. Mashmash says:

    The only Oscar I could ever in my wildest dreams see Twilight get is one for either the makeup or cgi [I don't know what was used] used to make kstew look on the verge of death so convincingly in Breaking Dawn.

    That sh*t was terrifying.

  46. Aiobhan says:

    I agree with everything you wrote. I think the waist is a little too high. It looks like it is trying to eat her up. She looks miserable. I like Balenciage a lot and maybe they see something in her that I do not. Does she always look this way?
