Kristen Stewart wore Chanel, won a Cesar Award in France: cute or tragic?


Kristen Stewart is now the first American actress to ever win a Cesar Award. The Cesar Awards are the French Oscars, and Kristen was the first American woman to be nominated for a Cesar in decades, and then last night, she WON. She won for her supporting work in Clouds of Sils Maria, the film she did with Juliette Binoche. Kristen got great reviews for that film, and it was somewhat a French production? Something like that. Other winners at last night’s Cesars included Timbuktu (Best Picture and six other awards), with Saint-Laurent picking up only Best Costume. You can read more about the awards here. Here’s Kristen Stewart being awkward and twitchy when she won her Cesar:

Well, congrats to her. But God, she’s awkward. Anyway, fashion notes! Kristen’s gown was Chanel Haute Couture Spring 2015. It’s not great. I think Kristen does look better when she wears more body-con styles, and that skirt looks too stiff and BIG for her. I’ll give Kristen this though: her hair and makeup were on-point. Kristen’s date last night was Juliette Binoche (Binoche lost her Cesar!) and Binoche wore Balenciaga. The dress is cute enough, I just wish Binoche had done something different with her hair and worn different shoes.


Also in attendance: Marion Cotillard and her lover/partner Guillaume Canet. Marion wore Dior. Consider this to be a preview of what she’ll wear at the Oscars.


Charlize Theron and Sean Penn were also in attendance. Charlize also wore Dior (gown and blazer). Her gown is so much better than Marion’s.

    This is going to be my favorite story this week. Does bad acting not translate into other languages? Have they never seen her work before?! LOL!

    • Ivy says:

      Did you see this film? Because she IS very good in it 😉

      • double says:

        I didn’t think she was. It always comes down to preference with her. I dislike the more European style of cinema in general and acting particularly where long slow shots and pauses and dialogue rather than movement and energy make a film’s points. As such I found her awful and the whole movie a bore. People who like that type (the French) find it amazing and award worthy. I think she couldn’t act to save her life.

      • geekychick says:

        European film, especially in the last decade or so, it’s rhythm(slowness), long shots, giving time to the actor to truly act, not just with words and exaggerated facial expressions is a characteristic of European cinema*. If you’re used to mainstream, American or americanized movies, they are gonna be too slow at first. I watched one a few days ago after a considerable pause(few years) and for the first ten minutes, I almost jumped out of my seat waiting for something to happen. But just 5 minutes later, when I realized that actors just made a scene in which they perfectly captured social anxiety without saying a word, driving in a car-I was hooked. It’s a completely different philosophy of movie making and I don’t think it’s fair to write it’s accomplishments off just because of it. And it’s not just the French that like them. By the way, that type of movie making was popularized by Romanian films in the last decade or so*.

        *My bff, an actress who finished our only official, national Acadamy of Performing Arts (MA in acting) taught me this during the last discussion-film history, theory and critic is part of their education.

      • double says:

        I worded my post really carefully to not create the connection you (and I suspect most) did but I guess it’s unavoidable. I don’t like modern mainstream American movies. I like Easy Rider and Cool Hand Luke and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Toshiro Mifune in Seven Samurai and Peter O’Toole in Lawrence of Arabia. A frenetic energy that less tells the audience what to feel and more implants that energy into them as they watch. I dislike when films tell me what to feel rather than making me feel it. One modern example would be The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Perhaps we can agree it is a case of 5+5=10 but so does 6+4?

    • Kiddo says:

      Long toenails, that is all.


    • Talie says:

      From someone who saw the film, I can tell you, she did deserve it. BUT if she wants to make a go of awards season next year (Sils Maria will be eligible for Oscar in 2016), she *needs* to work on her speech skills! Her acceptance speech was a hot mess…granted, she did seem completely shocked.

    • Helo says:

      @Hudson Girl: Ha!!…my thoughts exactly.

    • HoustonGrl says:

      Much as I find her antics a bit tiresome, the girl can act.

    • the think panther says:

      I watched the film in german and I couldn’t take my eyes of her. She was mesmerizing and easily held her own when paired with Binoche. The whole movie was an ode to actresses and heavily relied on the tension and chemistry between Binoche’s and Stewart’s characters. Kirsten really won me over (I hate-watched Twilight and wasn’t exactly a fan of her acting), although in all fairness, I suspect it helped that her character had some resemblance to herself. Still a subtle and nuanced performance and a very pleasant surprise.

    The French are trolling us

  3. MG says:

    I love Marion’s look!

    God, Sean Pean looks horrible.

  4. kai says:

    wow..if it had been Jennifer Lawrence winning this, this site would have gushed and praised to kingdom come over what if she is awkward.???.she is always been.This is a great win and the first american to do so…its freaken awesome.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • ell says:

      this. I bet most didn’t even watch this film, so how do you know how good she was?

      • kai says:

        she got rave reviews, the movie got great reviews too,…the film was a French production,..anyway point is she won,its great recognition,and she did a good job.lets swallow the negativity cause she is ‘awkward’ (her speech made me gringe a bit too,but we all cant b charming funny goofy JLAW can we? ) just give it to her just this one time.

    • mädchen says:

      So happy for her! She was highly praised for her performance in Cannes and every Film festival around the world. She was favorite of the most critics in predictions. What I like the most is Cesar isn’t popularity contest the way Oscar is. Best performance gets the award, not the best campain. Very well deserved for K. But I’m not surprised by some comments here. Just think it tells more about the person commenting than about the subject. Everybody has different taste in movies, actors. It’s wonderful, provides more diversity. This is why I don’t understand the mocking of her or anyone other critical acclaim, implying the members of academy must be trolling. Just because they don’t like the actor/ actress.
      About the “awkward” : I wish I could tell it to K in person what I tell my young sister every time she gets something like ” omg you so awkward, I had so much second hand embarrassment” etc etc etc. You are better than anyone who makes such comments. I know how much it costs you every time to be around people let alone speak publicly and I am very proud of you! If it pains them so much to hear you speak and watch you, they don’t have to. It’s not mandatory.

    • JH says:

      Yep. She looks beautiful and she’s not awkward- she is shocked. Marion looks AMAZING! Everything about her is perfection. Love the dress, hair, make-up…everything.

      • kai says:

        yes,she looks amazing, she very nervous, which to me makes it a lot more genuine. Kristen Steward is a great actress, and she has always been committed to these sorta films even when she was doing so happy for her.Good for her.
        I just got annoyed with this damn site cause they barely gave her credit, its very clear CB dont like her at all cz she isnt chatty goof ball..whiles ths site can gush and praise and be over the top with much lesser news.

    • Evyn says:

      First American actress. Adrien Brody won for The Pianist.

  5. Lily says:

    Is Charlize pregnant? That dress looks like it was designed to hide a bit of a bump.

  6. Tanguerita says:

    watching her accepting this award almost made my eyes bleed. You are an actress, for God’s sake, try to act like a grown-up person.

  7. ell says:

    sorry but that guy was being a dick when she asked him to put it down because her hands were shaking, she’s obviously very very nervous.

    well deserved btw, she was very good in clouds of sils maria.

    • CTgirl says:

      Helloooo, he may not speak English and La Stew isn’t known for being coherent in her own language let alone French.

    • Nora says:

      she was very moved and I was afraid that her joy starr balance cesar has the figure ( do not ask me why this scoundrel is still in invite judiciere ceremony saw the locker he has for violence against women ) in all if it was a pleasure to see and I hope it will continue in this direction.
      Marion was when you ‘re very lucky you are not forcing you to stuff his head nonsensical speech that last 1 hour

      • Nora says:

        My translator fails the guy who remisson him cesar s’apelle Joey starr

      • Nora says:

        oops ! My translator translate the name of the guy who delivered the cesar JOEY STARR with joy. I hope that my message is understandable

      • CTgirl says:

        @ell, the idea that everyone else in the world speaks English is so patronizing and arrogant. Does that mean Ell that if you visit Russia or China or Portugal that you automatically know and can converse in those languages? Because I’d really like to see that.

      • ell says:

        @CTgirl, first of all you have NO clue what my first language is so calm down (guess what, it’s not English). Secondly, I’m not debating whether it’s fair or not, I’m just saying that most actors nowadays DO speak English to at least some degree.

      • CTgirl says:

        @ell, I’m perfectly calm. Read my post again, I didn’t assume anything about your first language. However, you’re assuming that the presenter speaks English. You are the only one making assumptions.

      • ell says:

        @Ctgirl lol, I mean you got up in arms about me going to china and speaking chinese, so no the way it looks to me isn’t exactly ‘calm”. I’m assuming most actors/celebrities nowadays would know some English, because that’s usually the case. It’s taught in schools, and actually has been for quite some time now so it would be very surprising to find anyone who doesn’t speak any English at all.

        You don’t seem to understand that I’m not making any social commentary over whether English being spoken by most foreigners is right or not, I’m just pointing out that the presenter not knowing any English is unlikely.

      • Elly says:

        Joey Starr raps in english if he wants to… he also likes to beat the s*it out of his girlfriends and stewardesses… and even animals if i remember well.

    • Lahdidahbaby says:

      Dude knew exactly what she was trying to say. He was just pissed that une Americaine had won. Really bad form of him to ridicule her and slam the award down. Creep.

      • Ivy says:

        Nope, dude is just an a*shole.
        It’s pretty cool to be une Américaine. If your face is moving and your boobs are real 😉

      • LadidahBaby says:

        Well, I think we’re saying essentially the same thing about the as*hole. Sure, I agree with the rest, too.

    • anne_000 says:

      I found KS to be very rude in refusing to even touch the award. Would she have done the same thing if it was an Oscar?

      It just looked very ungracious of her. She needs to learn to act like she’s appreciative instead of looking like she’s weak and needs to be catered to. Basically she needs to grow up and stop acting like a young teenager, especially with that very poor speech and presentation she gave.

      • ell says:

        she looks appreciative, and she looks very moved. did you listen to her speech? she’s incredibly graceful towards her co-workers and the award she received. some people are uncomfortable with some social situations, it’s not very fair to call them rude for it (and no, it doesn’t matter that she’s an actress in the spotlight, if she’s shy and anxious these situations are going to be hard no matter what).

        also, if you read the comments you’d know that many french people have pointed out the guy giving the award is an ass, regardless of what he’s doing with kristen.

      • anne_000 says:

        I saw the speech. I saw the opposite of what you did. Totally ungraceful. Totally unappreciative. And totally rude.

        Most award recipients, imo, aren’t completely comfortable up there accepting awards. But they’ve got enough manners to know how to act graciously.

        Like I said below, he’s not her waiter. It’s not like she should act like he’s her waiter and is telling him to put the dish down on the table. Just be grown up enough and have enough manners to take the award and put it on the pedestal herself.

      • ell says:

        @anne_000 what’s ungracious about it exactly? she’s thanking all the people she’s worked with in this film, naming them one by one and mentioning how much they’ve opened her world and perspective. i think that some people dislike kristen and always will not matter what she does.

        @stephanie exactly. I don’t think some understand how it works when you’re truly anxious. I’ve had that hand thing happen to me as well on a couple of occasions, and I literally could not move my hands. not everyone is outgoing and can keep anxiety at bay, it has very little to do with manners.

    • Stephanie says:

      She said she couldn’t open her hands. If you watch she massages them at one point and you can see Her thumb in an awkward position at different points in the video. It is a nervous thing that has happened to me maybe 20 times and it is God awful and no you can’t just hold something in your hands if it happens.

      • Crumpet says:

        I suffer from social anxiety, so I am somewhat familiar what can happen when I get nervous. I have to admit I’ve never had that happen to me! It sounds terrible.

      • Stephanie says:

        crumpet -me too. Those general anxiety people get all the attention😉 …which is ok with me, lol.

  8. Kali says:

    I honestly love what Marion’s wearing, she has enough style to pull that off so it looks effortlessly bohemian (with just a splash of charmingly bonkers…). I can’t wait to see what she wears at the Oscars. At a bare minimum, she’s at least always interesting.

    • lucy2 says:

      Charmingly bonkers is a great way to describe her style. For her, and her alone, I love this as well.

  9. CTgirl says:

    It’s a relief that KS seems to have her public hair masturbation under control. Finally.

  10. Winterberry says:

    I think totally differently. Charlize Theron’s style is so predictable. Red, white, black, nude- her palette is so limited. Every time I see her dressed up for something I am never surprised by her choice. Marion Cotillard keeps me interested. I like her dress. It is feminine, romantic and imaginative. Whenever I read about her I wonder what she will be wearing and her choice is usually just right for her. As for Kristen Stewart, I like her dress too. It’s nice to see her in something other than jeans or something that looks like it was painted on.

  11. Kristin says:

    Charlize looks like she’s knocked up; Sean Penn looks like my old, drunk uncle who falls shitfaced into our swimming pool every 4th of July; and I actually like Kristen’s gown, but I just don’t think it fits her all that well. If it had been more tailored to her frame I think it would have been lovely.

  12. Cali says:

    I want to like Kristen in that dress but I don’t. She’s so much more comfortable looking in pants. The dress just looks awkward at the bottom.

    I thought it was douchy of Kristen to remark how much more she loves doing movies for the French over American studios. Kind of a dick thing to say.

    I love Marion’s look.

    • Daisy says:

      She’s accepting an award at a French ceremony. It’s actually a really nice thing of her to say, since the audience was full of French filmmakers, and she was talking about how great it was working with the director and being asked to do her first French film. I wouldn’t take it too seriously as anything other than having had a great experience on that movie.

  13. Kiddo says:

    Just missing a staff, but I’ll bleat this out:

    Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep,
    And doesn’t know where to find them;
    Leave them alone, And they’ll come home,
    Wagging their tails behind them

  14. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Seems the only two choices were awful or boring.

    • Kiddo says:

      Oh come on, who doesn’t love a dress with expansion panels, so you can eat as much as you like at dinner, (Juliette Binoche)? I actually kind of like Marion Cotillard’s Peruvian/Spanish?-Inspired skirt. I like that she kept the top simple with it.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        You just like it because the bottom looks like fringe.

      • Kiddo says:

        I love you GNAT.

      • irm says:

        I like Marion’s, too. She and Cate Blanchett can wear anything and have it look elegant or whimsical. How do they look so ethereal and beautiful no matter what they wear? lol Marion is perhaps my to watch besides Cate, as far as carpets and premier fashion, actually.

  15. muffins says:

    I LOVE KS’s dress, but oh, how I wish she would stand with her legs closed. It will make her dresses look so much better.

    • Lahdidahbaby says:

      True. And the fact that girl walks like a truck driver in drag isn’t helping with that. Still, a lovely dress and she looked very pretty until she began walking.

    • oneshot says:

      that stance would have been A-ok if she was wearing trousers. She looks good when she wears stuff that shows off her legs, this dress is like the opposite of whatever style she has. Surely Chanel would have had a good tuxedo or two in the awards season loaners, they would have suited her much better than this ugly fish scale-looking poof of a dress.

  16. Miss M says:

    1-Theron looks pregnant
    2-I loved cotillard’s style
    3- Kristen used to be a very good child actress. I am glad she is moving on from her twitching-lip biting phase , at least on screen.

    Congrats to her!

    • oneshot says:

      She was very good in Speak, which I believe was filmed when she was only 13 or 14. I’m glad to see her moving on from that franchise and putting in good performances.

  17. Ivy says:

    Kristen was very good in that film, she deserved to win (it’s a coproduction between France, Germany & Switzerland by the way),
    I thought she was very pretty in that dress (loved the shoes).
    She seemed both happy to win and completely frightened to be on that stage (after having to sit through the dullest award show ever, poor girl)

  18. Megan says:

    Are Chanel and Dior having an ugly dress contest?

  19. ClaireB says:

    Saw the movie, which was good , and she was good in it, but in a ” I’m Kristen Stewart being Kristen Stewart in a good movie excellently directed with an awsome and excellent co-star that tends to go a little overboard because her role requires it, therefore making everything I do very natural and very logical” way.

    But as a french, as I was not surprised by her win. It is so ..french, so..”hey, that would be cool.” And I wouldn’t be surprised if Juliette Binoche had a lot to do with it, behind the scenes.

    • Kiddo says:

      Ah, so it was good, like when Jack Nicholson’s roles called for Jack Nicholson characters? Don;t get me wrong, he was very good, but always Jack Nicholson.

  20. GingerCrunch says:

    Beauty and the Beast there, with Theron & Penn! Wow. And I love that Kaiser referred to Marion’s boyfriend as her “lover”. How French!

    • AustenGirl says:

      @GingerCrunch: That was my favorite part of the article! From hence forth, Mr. AustenGirl, a man to whom I’ve been married for 22+ years, will be referred to as my “lover and partner” in all of my press releases and in any informal media coverage.

      • GingerCrunch says:

        I think our long-time spouses would get a kick out of being referred to as such and it would prolly do our marriages hella good, too! Am I RIGHT?!?!

  21. Jess says:

    I like the dress on Kristen, but my stomach turns watching her acceptance speech, what’s with that guy slamming the award down and looking pissed? Also, Charlize looks pregnant.

    • anne_000 says:

      She refused to accept it into her hands. She told him to put it down on the pedestal instead. Though she said her hands were shaking, I found her actions to be very rude.

      Would she have refused to touch an Oscar if she had won one? This award is the French version of an Oscar and for her to refuse to even touch it was ungracious.

      • Jess says:

        It’s obvious she was very nervous and since her hands were so shaky maybe she didn’t want to drop it. She’s known to be extremely awkward at these things, she wasn’t being rude at all, he was.

      • anne_000 says:

        Has she ever been known to do this on a regular basis? Has she ever dropped an award? Is this the first time or first ten times she’s gotten an award?

        She needs to get a hold of herself and know that he’s not her waiter. Just get the award in your hands and put it on the pedestal all by yourself.

      • Crumpet says:

        This is the third time you have felt the need to post your rant, so I thought I’d just say it: You are taking this all way to personally.

      • lolab says:

        She dropped her mtv award before when she won- probably didn’t want a repeat at a Swankier awards show. No need to overdramatize it-it’s not like she asked him to do anything labor intensive.

      • Cindy says:

        Seems like maybe you are over-reacting to this. She was shaking, it was visible in the video.

    • rudy says:

      She DID drop an award before which is why she did not want to drop this one.

      omg, you guys are SO critical. If she had taken the award and dropped it, then what?

      The guy is an ass. He is known as an ass.

      Get off her case people. Kristin did a great job in the movie and deserved the award.

  22. kri says:

    Oh my god, Karl. Please stop this. She looks like a damn beeehive/beekeeper outfit. I don’t know what it is, but it is hurting my spirit. I have enough of a whiteout here without looking at these crap fabric experiments.

  23. oneshot says:

    good for Kstew actually improving her acting skills and putting in a good performance. Now to work on ditching that awkwardness, because it is understandable in a teenager spearheading a franchise with crazy fans, not so much in an almost 25-year-old woman who’s repping a film she is presumably proud of and happy to be a part of. (no one needs her to be Jlaw, but….less twitchy would be less grating). Also that dress is ugly, can’t Karl get her something better?

    I love Marion’s dress, it’s not your usual boring red carpet dress (unlike Charlize) and – quite unusually for Raf’s Dior – is pretty and flattering. Juliette Binoche looks beautiful, as always. And I absolutely agree with the commenter who said Sean Penn has the face he deserves. It’s a fairly accurate reflection of his character methinks.

    • OhDear says:

      I don’t think Stewart understands that not being awkward during these types of situations is part of her job, which is odd given how long she’s been in the industry. These awards shows are technically work functions for actors.

      Also agreed on Penn.

    • Kim says:

      Jen L is just as awkward at these awards shows. How many times does she trip, fall or almost fall? Or Jen L. thinking everyone was laughing at her, on stage at last years Oscars? That was awkward of Jen. How would people react if Kristen had tripped on the red carper or going onto the stage? Nerves are nerves, it doesn’t matter which actress. Humans (actors) get nervous at these events.

  24. Tig says:

    I didn’t like the Chanel dress either- but I haven’t liked too much of what they/Karl have put her in. Marion’s is a bit better, bec at least kept the focus on the skirt.

    How good/same she was in Silas M I will leave to others. As the Frence say-c’est la vie.

  25. Helo says:

    It’s a joke, right?…right??!!.

    The French are indeed trolling us.

  26. Tara says:

    The French actors must be annoyed with the Cesar’s kissing up to Hollywood.

    Charlize and Sean are beauty and the beast. She’s gorgeous in red. Hard living has really caught up to him though.

    Marion looks nice. The French can pull that off.

    • Freebunny says:

      If you looks at the vid, french actors are not annoyed.
      She was the fav for every french critics. People knew she was going to win and they are not upset with that.

  27. geekychick says:

    For the first time I actually like the Chanel on her: all the times before it looked like they were trying to find the worst piece they could for her, and this one I actually like, as in, I’d wear it. Binoche is the goddess, I love her, even if she came in a trash bag. But I can’t agree on Theron-Cotiliard assessment: Marion has something fresh, quirky and original, Theron has a dress that could be bought at the mall (or it looks that way). I find it pretty boring.
    And am I the only one that can’t help but think what kind of an as*hole Theron is if she gets so swimmingly with Penn?

  28. Catk says:

    Is Penn wearing a girdle? His stomach looks suspiciously flat compared to recent pictures of him.

  29. anne_000 says:

    Courtney Love could have done a better speech high….

    I loved how the presenter slammed the award down on the pedestal when she refused to accept it into her hands. Would she have done that with an Oscar?

    • ell says:

      yes, because her hands were shaking. she did nothing wrong.

    • Crumpet says:

      Good Lord – make that 4 times!

    • Div says:

      Good lord Anne you’ve posted six times on it. The girl said in her speech she couldn’t move her hands they were shaking so much. How is that rude? It would have been rude to drop it or not explain why. Even Joey Starr, who is a woman beater and shouldn’t have been invited, didn’t seem bothered once he saw how awkward she was at speaking and the person next to him probably explained. You are reaching to bitch on her. Her speech was a hot mess and awkward but she wasn’t rude

    • Cindy says:

      Anne-settle down. Geez.

  30. dr mantis toboggan says:

    I just watched the video and … Wow.
    I don’t think anybody is as bad at anything as Kristen Stewart is at everything.

    • Ssmartinez55 says:

      She is a train wreck. She has been at this long enough to have become comfortable in the spotlight. Nothing about that speech was cute or gracious. Only her stans could see anything adorable in that wretchedness. So dramatic and immature. For as full of herself as she is in her interviews, the awkwardness and lack of poise she displays is almost unbelievable. If she wasn’t so arrogant I would almost feel sorry for her. If you want to be a movie star, this is not the way. There are soooo many other more talented starlets out there who have the composure and maturity to handle he fame and accolades that come with the territory. She could not go away fast enough as far as I’m concerned.

    • cyndi says:

      Yes. So bad she was nominated And WON Best Supporting Actress! So bad at EVERYTHING!!
      Tut tut.

  31. Jayna says:

    I love Marion’s look on the red carpet.

  32. Ice Queen says:

    Wow, Marion’s look is awesome. I love Charlize’s blazer. And I would’ve loved Kristen’s gown if it were longer or shorter.

  33. Grace says:

    kristen and Marion look like they are wearing lampshades as skirts. But they look cute though.

  34. Nibbi says:

    Sils Maria was a really good movie, worth seeing… just throwing that out there.

    Mostly I remember Juliette Binoche deserving an award for her performance.

  35. moo says:

    agreed, the skirt part of stewart’s dress doesn’t work on her.
    the bodice is nice.

  36. MyDarlingPinkett says:

    My god, that speech was awkward. And it wasn’t even just her that was awkward. Horrible dress, too, and I agree that bodycon dresses suit her better.

    She’s basically played herself in everything I’ve seen her in (which doesn’t even include Twilight, since I could never be bothered), but I haven’t seen this one yet, so I’ll hold off on saying she was bad in it. You never know, right? My film tastes are all over the board, and that includes French movies, so I’ll probably see this at some point.

    Good for her. I’m not a fan of the dress, but her makeup/hair is on point. She really needs to work on her speeches and on being less nervous. She thanked everyone so that was good, but she looked like a startled rabbit. Clouds of Sils Maria is qualifying for 2016 and there’s a decent chance she may be nominated for smaller awards after this or at least present to Juliette Binoche so hopefully she’ll get a little better

    I don’t mind the dress, but the shoes are all wrong for it. Way too dark and heavy for the whimsy of the cut. Marian Cotillard is a gem, though.

    Speaking of cringe-worthy.
    The most cringe-worthy thing during the ceremony was Marion’s speech to introduce Sean Penn. It was really really painful.
    If you look at the twitter hashtag french people had much more problems with Marion’s never ending speech than with Kristen being her awkward self.

    Kristin looks like she’s wearing a costume, as though she’s playing someone going to a ball. Her own personal style seems like she’d be more comfortable in a simple mini dress and boots.

    So having a stroke on screen while playing yourself in different situations in literally every role is award worthy now? Good to know.

    I LOVE Marion’s dress! I don’t care for Charlize’s much, too sack like in the fit.
