Is Kristen Stewart now happily dating 30-year-old French singer Soko?


This ^^ is Soko. Her full name is Stephanie Sokolinski, but she performs under the name Soko. She’s a 30-year-old French singer-songwriter and one of the latest Fashion Darlings/It Girls, at least according to Vogue. Soko has been attending Paris Fashion Week events all week, and people are excited about her baby-bangs, vintage-y “look” and her music. Personally, I don’t believe women should ever, ever wear red eye makeup and/or baby bangs, but perhaps that’s a personal quirk. Anyway, there’s another reason why people are starting to pay attention to Soko: she might be Kristen Stewart’s new girlfriend! Last week, Kristen and Soko stepped out in LA, looking affectionate and somewhat loved up. Here’s a photo:

Star Magazine says that it is ON, and Kristen’s relationship with Alicia Cargile really is over.

After just a year of dating, Kristen Stewart has split from former assistant Alicia Cargile, a source tells Star, citing the common strains of a long-distance relationship. Not that Stewart, 25, is wasting any time wallowing!

An eagle-eyed spy spotted K-Stew packing on the PDA with 30-year-old French musician Soko (born Stephanie Sokolinski) on March 2 after showing down at organic chain Café Gratitude in LA.

“They were obviously more than friends, Those two couldn’t keep their hands off each other,” explains the eyewitness. “At first, they were walking arm in arm, cuddling and holding hands. But then they started making out and at one point, Soko grabbed Kristen’s butt.”

[Star Magazine, print edition]

Kristen spent much of fall 2015 in France, working on Personal Shopper with writer/director Olivier Assayas. Is it possible that Kristen quietly broke up with Alicia at some point last year and started dating Soko while in Paris? I think it’s more than possible. And for those of you who don’t believe in this kind of speculation… I mean, even Kristen says “Google me, I’m not hiding.” She’s never verbally confirmed that she’s dating women, but she’s not hiding it. And I think these photos from LA were an open pap stroll, like Kristen doesn’t care if we know that she’s got a new girlfriend.

Also, Kristen arrived in France last night and Soko came to pick her up. Soko brought flowers.

    Baby bangs are a misdemeanor, red eye shadow is a felony.

    • Lizzie McGuire says:

      Baby bangs need to be banned, but seriously why?! Say no to baby bangs 2016!

    • Aarika says:

      Right? Absolutely atrocious. I actually leaned back from my computer upon looking at this picture. JUST NO.

    • Mimi says:

      She probably met this girl during filming in France last year, but she was papped with Alicia in January.
      Typical KStew, she finds the replacement while still in the previous relationship!
      Judging from Soko’s IG, she’s kind ‘ve a trainwreck, I love it!

    • Erinn says:

      Oh God – she looks like Selma Blair dressed up for a role as a cracked out 80s/90s train wreck.

      • SnarkySnarkers says:

        They both look like they need 10 showers. Also, THIS girl was going to Paris fashion week? Flannel, a terrible acid wash jean jacket and dark high waisted denim? The baby bangs are not the only fashion crime being committed here!

    • funcakes says:

      I would comment but I’m afraid Soko will find me and beat me up.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      I like baby bangs. The red eyeshadow is awful. But these photos don’t do her justice, she’s actually a pretty woman.
      I first heard one of Soko’s songs in that strangers kiss video that went viral a few years ago. Her music is really nice.

      • Truthful says:

        I find her really beautiful and interesting. I saw her in bye bye Blondie and she is really really pretty

      • Magnoliarose says:

        I don’t mind them either especially women who are rocking a vintage look. It’s a break from the same old same old. I too like her music.

      • QQ says:

        I too Love Soko’s musical Vibe

    • JRenee says:

      Laughing my entire ass off, wow ^^^

  2. LAK says:

    That’s some 80s realness.

    I can’t believe the 80s is inspiring to hipsters.

    • Kitten says:

      I’m getting more of a mid-to-late 1990s vibe from these pics.

      What’s funny is that even though hipsters borrow heavily from the 80s and 90s, you never see them doing the awful AquaNet hairstyles. I guess their commitment only goes so far.

      • M says:

        Yes! I am getting 90s too! I was shopping recently and couldn’t believe all the 90s styles that were out. I texted some pics to my little sister who is a 20 year old sorority girl in college and she said many of her friends wear similar styles. I said it was a crime

      • Eleonor says:

        90’s, totally 90’s.
        I used to dress like that between 1994 and 1997.
        The grunge “chemise” is back. Lord have mercy.
        Specifically the one Soko is wearing has nearly the same colours of the one Axl Rose wore during the Use Your Illusion world tour.
        And now I feel old.

      • Locke Lamora says:

        I just googled AquaNet hairstyles. My eyes. My poor eyes.
        The 90s were kinda nice fashion-wise. Especially the grunge fashion ( the clothes, not the “I bathe once a year” look). The 80s were much worse ( I’m judging this only from pictures, I was born in 1993). The 00s fashion was god awful too.

      • Truthful says:

        @Locke Lamora: I did exactly the same. maaaan! my poor eyes too… then I laughed a lot!

      • Narak says:

        She’s channeling Édouard Manet’s bar maid, painting from 1882. I love this.

      • Katie says:

        We didn’t look ANYTHING like this in the 80s!! Please!!?

    • CTgirl says:

      I lived through the 90’s the first time. Nothing can induce me to revisit that fashion hole of a decade.

  3. Kitten says:

    Wow..Kaiser-your comments about her baby bangs were really tame compared to what I was expecting. I didn’t even see the word “trauma” in there.
    You’re getting soft, my friend 😉

    Her hair is an abomination. It’s terrible.
    That being said, these two look cute together.

  4. Artemis says:

    Don’t most of her relationships overlap?
    Soko is cute.

    • Santia says:

      Soko is cute? I can’t see past the high/drugged and dirty look she sports all the time.

    • Div says:

      There were several tabloid stories about her and Alicia being over in September but that they were trying to remain friendly-ish and might possibly get together. Besides, she and Alicia haven’t been papped together in a couple of months….so I’m not sure why everyone goes “overlap.”

    • Artemis says:


      Yes, I find her cute. I generally don’t like the overly primmed and plucked look most celebrities sport for a pap stroll so I like this casual look. I don’t see drugged, I see 2 make-upless girls who aren’t dressed to the nines while hanging out. Hot.


      Because in her dating history she has both cheated and had overlap that’s why. And yeah, I read that but then on twitter there were LQ pictures from fans who spotted the 2 of them in cafés. I don’t keep track of her timeline though, like I don’t care even if there is overlap. It was just in case there was a clear overlap that I was ‘asking’.

      • Div says:

        Nah, there was no “clear” overlap tho I do feel sort of bad for Alicia since there was a very publicist sounding/friend talked to the press break up notice several months ago that made it sound like they were friendly and it might be a temporary break up….but KStew clearly moved on and is being far more open than she ever was with Alicia. It had to be hard being with a semi-closeted star with an insane fanbase, and then see her openly move out of the closet with someone else just a few months later….especially when she used to be like “duck behind a garbage bin/walk ten feet ahead of someone” half the time and nowadays seems to be zen and ignoring the paps.

        Anyway, Soko is pretty cute, this is not the most flattering photo of her. She’s vegan straight edge and KStew seems like burgers and a blunt, so it is a weird match up. Guess opposites attract.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      Cute is the right word; I’m having trouble believing Soko is 30! She looks much younger.

  5. JENNA says:

    Omg! I met Soko a few years ago through a mutual friend. That girl is annoying and a nutcase.

    • Bettyrose says:

      They sound perfect for each other! Honestly, I was sold on Soko as KStew’s soul mate from the top pic. Imagine all the eye rolling and existential angst these two can share.

  6. Greenieweenie says:

    Nothing to add except I had that same belt in 1992, and microfringe is a thing. I’m thinking about it…maybe after my job hunt.

  7. Lizzie McGuire says:

    I read it as “Now happily married to Yoko” which kinda gave me a heart attack.

  8. Astrid says:

    why do they look greasy and dirty? Hipster wannabee’s don’t wash their hair?

    • CornyBlue says:

      They absolutely do not look dirty or greasy. Kristen is the face of Chanel. I am sure she knows how to take care of herself.

    • Santia says:

      I posted this above before I saw your comment. They look dirty AF.

    • Erinn says:

      I wouldn’t say greasy/dirty. A bit disheveled, maybe – like if I rolled out of bed and had to take the dog out in the morning before I got a chance to get changed/do my hair.

      I think dirty/gross is pushing it, though they definitely aren’t done up. And really – do they need to be?

      • Div says:


        Yeah, I sort of like KStew but I’ll be the first person to admit she looks greasy and disheveled at times…but this “ha ha greasy sloppy dirty” line sometimes bugs me when it comes to her because it’s often thrown at her when she’s not on the red carpet and often seems sort of another way of saying “not dressed in a feminine enough manner.” Ellen Page used to get a lot of the same “sloppy” remarks thrown at her even when she was out at a cafe or something.

      • Naya says:

        @Div I agree. Anybody can see its just coded language for “unlady like”. Theres nothing greesy in those pics, just two casually dressed women who didnt spend their morning ironing creases, coiffing hair and painting faces.

      • Locke Lamora says:

        I don’t think she looks greasy or dirty in these pictures, but she sometimes walks around with greasy hair. Harry Styles does it too. That gives them the sort of dirty-ish look. You’d think that with their money they could afford the best shampoos.

      • Magnoliarose says:

        That’s my take too. Unkempt maybe but not filthy.

  9. Deb says:


  10. Donna says:

    “Fashion darling/It girl”… Um…this is not a nice comment for me to make, but from that header photo, if that’s what’s passing for an ” it girl”, apparently being attractive isn’t a requirement. Sorry.

  11. ell says:

    she kinda has a type doesn’t she… are there still people who might not believe she’s bisexual? i thought most of her crazy stans had given up by now

    • kai says:

      What are the Robsten truthers making of this? Just another diversion? Is she having her third child?

      • I ♡Robsten 4-eva! says:

        Excuse me…just hold up for a second. Rob and Kristen have two children, not three. They continue to be happily married and share a deep, spiritual, almost otherworldly connection that mere mortals like you and I will never comprehend.
        In Kristen’s spare time she keeps the Stewart-Pattinson Los Angeles based homestead squeaky clean while baking pies and making homemade jam for her devoted husband Rob to enjoy. Rob is the most devoted daddy in the world to their adorable little babies, which we aren’t allowed to know the names of because PRIVACY. I respect that, along with their ninja- like ability to all travel together in secret around the world because of the constant danger they are in from the paparazzi.
        So next time, stop being so jel and check your facts before jumping to conclusions. Kristen Stewart-Pattinson has birthed TWO beautiful girls with her devoted hubby–not three. And don’t even get me started about the horrifying rumors that Kristen likes women. NOPE! How could she….she’s been married to Robert for years. Honestly, the bs that some people are naive enough to believe just boggles my twi-enlightened mind.

      • Naya says:

        Lmao and also a little scared, robsten lover.

        Seriously though, just visited the HKN haven site and this is pretty accurate. They think Kristen is trying to divert attention from Robsten and the tots. I guess she intends to hide behind “staged” romances until the kids are 18? Poor Rob is so committed to hiding, he is engaged to marry another woman.

  12. Mia4s says:

    Say something nice…say something nice…uhhh, I like…the colour red?

  13. Insomniac says:

    Aren’t those photos of KStew and Soko older than a week? I could swear I saw those a while ago.

  14. Kelly says:

    So why is it okay to insult these girls looks so badly? But people here bend over backwards to defend the tiniest insult about other celebs?

    • nina says:

      I think it’s because people are commenting on their style and not their facial features or body.
      When people comment on someone like say Jennifer Aniston, they are talking about things she can’t change without surgery, like jaw size, nose etc I mean someone actually wrote that she looks like tootsie…
      I don’t see anything wrong in saying someone looks ‘dirty’ because this hipster style does look dirty, I’m sure even actual hispter would tell you that’s the look they’re going for to show they “don’t care” (even though they spent hours perfecting that greasy hair with gel)

    • Sullivan says:

      Kelly, I was wondering the same thing.

    • madi says:

      It always amazes me how hypocrite people are.

    • Bobo says:

      Kelly – I agree.

  15. Original T.C. says:

    I like Soko’s styling and her personality just jumps off the pages. Thumbs up for this relationship. *Ducks and covers*

  16. Dani says:

    Soko has great music…that doesn’t match her at all. I got nothing else.

  17. hannah says:

    I don’t think they look dirty. That vogue press release tho is suspect. It read like Kstews publicist wrote it to make us believe Soko is credible and a fashion it girl. Sorry Charlie, not believable – besides last week she’s not been on the scene. Why can’t she just be the new thing, why the vogue hard sell. lol Cheers all.

  18. Zaid says:

    What happened to Soko? She looks busted.

    That said, this is such a random couple.

  19. sigghh says:

    I smell a toxic personality…..I’d like to see kate with another type of chick, enough with the grungies

  20. OhDear says:

    Judging by appearances alone, it looks like they have a lot in common. They even kind of look alike!

    Hope that they are both happy, if this is true.

  21. Who ARE these people? says:

    Always good to chow down on organic food before lighting up a ciggie.

    • Magnoliarose says:

      Nothing wrong with pesticide free food with a nicotine chaser. They offset each other.

  22. Apsutter says:

    Yeeesh that’s a hard 30! I’m always amazed at how people my age have aged differently.

  23. Rasheeda says:

    *shrug* I’ve known she was gay since early-2000s and always figured she would come out once the Twilight frenzy ended and here we are.

  24. Div says:

    The Robsten/twihard idiots are already leaving the most homophobic, nasty messages on her IG to the point she had to delete some photos. I believe they were under the (homophobic) impression that her relationship with Alicia was just a “phase,” and since they hadn’t been photographed together in a few months and there were some tabloid stories about them breaking up back then too, they thought that “phase” (ugh, homophobic idiots) was over and she would be back to men. I always kind of figured they would turn on her (a lot already had) like they did to RPattz when he got engaged to FKA Twigs when they finally realized they moved on years ago and probably weren’t ever a real couple in the first place back when Twilight happened.

    Anyway, I like Soko. She’s outspoken about being vegan straight edge though and has an over the top personality, despite looking like an angsty party hard rock star, so I don’t exactly see how she’s going to mesh with KStew who seems like a low key hippie stoner. She’s been around for a while in France as an actress/singer—she was nominated for a Cesar a few years ago—but I guess she’s trying to make a break for it in the English speaking world with the recent Vogue, etc. interviews.

    • drnotknowitall says:

      Yeah, Soko is a bit too public about her love meltdowns. Kstew should run the other way.

  25. HappyMom says:

    Soko seems way more into her than she is-I give it a few months.

  26. Leahpet says:

    I’m just going to say it – they both look like they smell really bad – in the realm of Johnny Depp funk. I’m guessing a combination of BO, cigarettes, pot, and Ramen Noodles.

  27. Blackwood says:

    all I can take from this is: anyone can be a potential “it girl”, apparently the only thing you need is channel Kurt Cobain with the plaid flannel shirt and the greasy hair. Maybe it’s actually a competition to see who can spend more days without washing their hair/face or who has the strongest smoke scent.

  28. magpie says:

    This is PERFECT coupling imo, makes total sense.

    Anyone remember that “first kiss” video that went viral a couple years back where 20 good looking hipsters were asked to kiss when they just met? Soko was in the “lesbian couple” and it was pretty hot.

  29. Jenna says:

    Dies laughing. What happened to the “girl” that was so private. This is absolutely hilarious. What a show boat.

  30. drea says:

    Best wishes, but for some reason this seems a little sad. Seeing a 30 year-old woman dressed like a four year-old publicly hanging all over a tomboy-ish young woman just looks like two very lost souls in need of attention and probably extensive psychotherapy. They knew they were being photographed so this is clearly intentional but I cannot imagine why.

  31. Shannon says:

    This will never last. I saw her instagram account and she’s too over the top for KStew. Too many public declarations and all that.

  32. drnotknowitall says:

    Oh boy. Soko is a bit clingy. This will end badly. Seriously, I just checked out her Instagram. Too much “love me please” drama.

  33. Magnoliarose says:

    I’m glad Kristin stopped somewhat hiding and is obviously enjoying herself with someone with some common interests most likely. I think for some being young is all about having crazy or fun relationships and learning about yourself as well as taking yourself way too seriously and behaving a little reckless. Soko gives me wacky emotionally intense vibes but I think K Stew would like that.

  34. I.don’

  35. Mrs. Odie says:

    Are we sure that isn’t Duckie from Pretty in Pink? Did anyone check her shoes?

  36. mimi says:

    so, after fake romance with pattinson for 4 years, she is now dating woman.
    wow, that’s really a blow for her fans, i mean, ellen page more classy than k-stew, she is proud she’s being gay in the public and she’s definitely look more happy than k-stew

  37. KJ says:

    Loved Soku’s first EP the lyrics were so funny and relatable. Good for them! Hope they have a long happy life together.

    Adore this song.

  38. gaucho says:

    do you read “La Nación” ??? wow

  39. Rice says:

    Unpopular opinion but all I see are 2 friends who are women that are hanging out together. I mean if people believe statements from so-called spies about this, then any statements from “spies” should be believed for all celebs.

    Having said that, I don’t see what the big deal is if she is gay or bisexual. It’s her life.
