Kristen Stewart in Chanel at Cannes ‘Cafe Society’ premiere: tragic or cute?


It was never going to be a surprise: Kristen Stewart was always going to wear Chanel throughout this year’s Cannes Film Festival. She has a lucrative Chanel contract and Karl Lagerfeld has some weird affection for her “look.” But did they have to choose one of the weirdest Chanel Resort looks of the season? The blouse is pure ‘80s: sheer, with breast pockets and solid cuffs. It looks SO CHEAP. The skirt is interesting, at least, although I will never believe that tea-length is the new full-length. Think about this… what is the skirt was actually a ball gown-type skirt? And what if Kristen paired it with a light black cashmere t-shirt? It would actually be stunning.



Vanessa Paradis also wore Chanel to the Café Society premiere at Cannes. In some photos, it’s sort of interesting, but then you look closely at the detailing and the material, and this is just made of NOPE. That is some really cheap-looking lace.


Doutzen Kroes is everything even if her Brandon Maxwell gown is slightly boring. You know what would have made it more interesting? If the whole gown was the same rich black velvet of the top. Still, her face is perfect!


Gong Li wore Roberto Cavalli and this makes me SO sad. Gong Li is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful women in the world. She should be wearing Armani or… I don’t know, something other than this faux-hippie mess. This looks like something from Stevie Nicks’ closet, only Dolly Parton’s rhinestone guy got a hold of it.


Don’t hate me, but I have no idea what a “Bianca Balti” is, but she decided to wear this BIG Alberta Ferretti gown. I like the shade of blue, but the tulle tiers are tragic.

    WTF is Kristen wearing?

  3. Alix says:

    Tragique indeed.

  4. Sam says:

    Tragic. She got upstaged at her own premiere by a bunch of other women who brought their A game.

  5. Locke Lamora says:

    I like it. I would like it better if the shirt wasn’t sheer and she didn’t wear orange lipstick, but all in all, I like it.
    Doutzen Kroes is such a boring model. Pretty but so so boring.
    I like the cut of Vanessa’s dress, but not the material or colour.

    • Bridget says:

      I really hate that orange red lipstick is in this year. It looks so dated on most of the women wearing it.

  6. Bishg says:

    Bianca Balti is an Italian supermodel.
    She’s been a major testimonial of several brands such as Dolce Gabbana and L’Oreal.
    She’s gorgeous and quite lovely as a person (not that I know her personally, she just gives me this vibe).

  7. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I know everybody loves KStew’s hair that way, but I really hate it.

    • Goats on the Roof says:

      I think it looks awful. I was pretty surprised that so many seem to like it.

    • Kate says:

      Thank you!!! It barely looks washed much less styled!!

    • mia girl says:

      I’m with you. I think the bleaching was poorly done plus it doesn’t flatter her features or work with her skin tone.

    • Fallon says:

      I hate it. You’re not alone.

    • noway says:

      I hate her hair too. What’s with the platinum blonde on these girls and she has to add the roots to give it an even more I don’t give a f look? I like her skirt here, and in this group even though they are all awful Kristen’s is the best of awful because I like the skirt, but the top has to go. The others are boring or costumey or just all around bad. Yuck.

      • Myrna says:

        How perfect would KStew be with Jesse Eisenberg?
        I’d love to see it – no?!

        BTW – I love her look here, minus the see through top. Wish that was sold black & silky or a simple camisole would have sealed the deal.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        Pretty sure she would totally dominate that little dweeb and I would love to see it. He gives me creepy vibes – like he’d be degrading to women he thinks he can get away with it with. I’m also waiting for him to get start tanning, taking steroids and get pec implants in an effort to escape his pale wormy body.

      • Myrna says:

        That made me LOL!

        But I think they’re both so quirky and angry and awkward – yeah, she’d probably dominate him, too – that they’d be perfect together…

      • WhatAmIDoingHere? says:

        Maybe that’s who she cheated on her girl friend with, they look like they’re vibing of one another. He is rather insufferable just like her.

      • hmmm says:

        Her hair looks ratty like that. The rat standing beside her enhances the look.

    • lucy2 says:

      I don’t like it either.
      It’s as if she, Taylor Swift, and Jennifer Lawrence all go to the same hairstylist and someone accidentally poured bleach into the products. All way, way, way too blonde.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        I wonder if they were going for ScarJo’s look but it didn’t turn out right.

      • threetoedsloth says:

        Agreed! The thing with bleached platinum hair is that it doesn’t look good when it’s un-styled, it just looks really, really cheap. And so many of today’s hairstyles are carefully styled to look un-styled!

    • Kitten says:

      It’s fug.

    • Magnoliarose says:

      Joining the club. I like edgy looks but this just looks like some cheap dye job some southern Californian skateboarder would wear.

      • susanne says:

        My hair looks better, and my daughter says it looks like a reese’s cup that got snowed on. I’m not sure what that means, exactly. Orange and brown with some white, I fear. It’s not good, but better than Kstew’s.
        Pretty confident in that.

  8. mia girl says:

    The BeeGees sung it best…TRAGEDY!

  9. UCatwoman says:

    I’d rather wear Jaclyn Smith for K-Matt than Chanel.

  10. CornyBlue says:

    Doutzen is one of the prettiest girls I have ever seen. She is so pretty it makes me want to cry

    • noway says:

      She is gorgeous, but that dress looks like it fell out of Fredericks of Hollywood circa 1970’s and not in a good way.

    • Kitten says:

      IKR? How can one woman be that gorgeous?
      She is ridiculously stunning.

  11. felixswan2 says:

    Kristen looks horrible in my opinion. Her hair, makeup and that top are all awful. I think she’s a beautiful woman, but she has been looking really bad lately. The skirt is pretty though, but the fitting is all wrong.

    • threetoedsloth says:

      I hate that blouse so much, plus it’s a look that has been done to death. I actually like the skirt, but it’s a definite sign that the waistband is too tight if someone as slim as Kristen has a roll of flesh hanging over it, js!

    • Kitten says:

      Yeah she’s been looking really bad. Shame because I was loving the short, dark hair on her-I thought it suited her face perfectly.

  12. roxane says:

    Everyone is tragic.

  13. Margo S. says:

    Ewww. Woody is so creepy. #barf

  14. dagdag says:

    What happened to Jesse Eisenberg´s pants in the first and third picture? Photoshopping gone mad?

  15. PunkyMomma says:

    I thought Kristen’s makeup was terrific. The blouse is tragic – especially when worn by someone who slouches. She might have carried that ensemble off had she stood up straight.

  16. Lex says:

    Why are professionals, people that are paid to put on makeup, pairing Kristen with that heavy eye makeup and bright lipstick?? How can they honestly look at their work and say that it looks good?

  17. Insomniac says:

    Oh ugh — ok, that looks more like the usual frightmares Chanel sticks Kristen in.

  18. Tig says:

    KS’ skirt had potential, but that shirt is horrific. In all seriousness, if this how Karl dresses his “favs”, run Lilly Depp!!

    I do like the color of the tiered gown. I miss the Robert Cavalli of a few years ago- he did some amazing red carpet dresses.

  19. lilacflowers says:

    Donald Sutherland. That is all. That is all there ever needs to be.

  20. Kate says:

    She looks like she bathed for the event? That’s all I got.

  21. Mia4s says:

    ……..Are we sure Karl Lagerfeld likes these women? Because that’s a lot of ugly.

  22. SilkyMalice says:

    I love Gong Li’s dress.

  23. lucy2 says:

    Dreadful all around.

  24. QQ says:

    OHHH nooooo Gong Li was done wrong… actually that goes for everyone in this post, frankly Kristen being the least objectionable of the bunch

    • cd3 says:

      LOL makes me think of that line in China Rich Girlfriend: “under no circumstances should you ever wear Roberto Cavalli again, ever.”

    • elns says:

      Ugh. I totally agree. I got my hopes up. She usually delivers, but this … is definitely Stevie Nicksesque. sigh.

  25. Eveil says:

    Ugh. Someone fire Gong Li’s stylist.

  26. Joannie says:

    I think Kristin Stewart looks amazing! Love the whole look. Very fashion forward.

  27. Mac says:

    Kristen looks good. She looks young, pretty and happy.

  28. Magnoliarose says:

    A parade of tore up from the floor ups. Doutzen deserves a better dress. Well they all do really.

  29. Chem says:

    Bianca Balti is an italian supermodel, she is been in every D&G ad for years. She is gorgeous

  30. Bread and Circuses says:

    Kristen seems to really like sheer things. She’s worn many outfits, especially on red carpets, that were some variation on sheer (like the lace dress she wore when she jokingly gave Charlize Theron the finger.)

  31. cd3 says:

    Gee, you can really feel the sizzling chemistry bw Kristen and Jesse.

  32. Smd says:

    Clearly I don’t get the bleached hair fashion statement. It looks terrible to me, cheap and unflattering. I get some roots showing but this look is so extreme, it just confuses the eye.The strong orangey red lip and dark eyes are just too much on most, even models who can carry any looks. Usually the older and wiser one gets the more acceptance on what works and doesn’t work for us despite fads develops. I think Kristin is still searching for her style.

    • Veronica says:

      I suspect it’s for a role, and I’ll give her a pass on it because of how damaging the bleaching process is. Sometimes you have to let the roots grow in a bit and let the hair recover before you bleach so it doesn’t wind up totally fried.

  33. Veronica says:

    I feel like sheer has to be really flattering to the body to work, and this just kind of looks sloppy. It’s so obvious tape is being used to hold the pockets in the right place. Like, if we’re seeing a 360 shot of your tits sans nipple, you might as well go all out, eh? It’s Cannes.

    She also went braless in a white crop top elsewhere, so I’m kind of like…okay honey, what are you trying to distract us from?

    Tiny rant on the latter: The braless t-shirt look almost never works for me unless the breasts are enhanced or smaller because of how the material winds up sitting over them. The wider part of the shirt where the fabric has more give for your breasts is generally designed with a bra in mind, so it sits higher than where natural breasts fall. Instead of edgy, you get this weird stretching effect where the boobs are shoved into odd positions and the shirt looks too small.

  34. what's inside says:

    This is Cannes, Mecca of the well-dressed red carpet look – what happened to you all?

  35. Mylene-Montreal says:

    She look SO good ! her hair can be better .. but i love the style. She have a amazing stylist !
