Are you feeling Kristen Stewart’s Bowie-esque ruffled Rodarte look?


I will never understand pink eye makeup. I’m just putting that out there – I think pink eye makeup is some kind of trick being played on women, because it never looks good. These are photos of Kristen Stewart at the New York premiere of Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, which was directed by Ang Lee. Kristen is fashioning an impressive career for herself these days, carefully choosing independent films, European filmmakers and smaller parts in bigger movies with prestigious directors. Ang Lee is one of the greatest directors working today, and I suspect Kristen would have done any role for Ang, in any film. Her role in this is supporting, but it’s a significant move for her to work with someone like Ang Lee.

As for her fashion… um… this look is Rodarte. Kristen has been wearing so much Chanel lately, I was surprised to see her in Rodarte, and in an ensemble that is quite… challenging. It’s quite a look, I’ll say that. I guess she’s probably channeling David Bowie with the hair and makeup, and the pants seem more like Mick Jagger. The blouse is not rock and roll, unless we’re talking about cheesy ‘80s hair bands.

What else? Everyone’s talking about how Kristen is totally loved up with St. Vincent now. They’ve been spending a lot of time in New York together over the past few weeks. St. Vincent is fresh off a break up with Cara Delevingne. And surprisingly – ??? – St. Vincent, Cara and Kristen all ended up at the same place last Thursday: the Bowery Ballroom. Cara was there with Taylor Swift and the squad. Kristen and St. Vincent were presumably there together. Awkward? Who knows. My vibe is that Cara is one to hold a grudge, especially if she was the one who got dumped, but we really don’t know.

Last thing: one of Kristen’s new films is Certain Women, currently making its way through film festivals now. It just won the big award at the BFI London Film Festival. I’m telling you, Kristen is making some really smart career choices.

    It’s, at the same time, horrible and fun.

    • Janetdr says:

      Not a big fan of the pants, but also feel she looks much better than usual. Pink eye makeup usually makes one look sick, but even that is not horrible in this picture.

  2. AlleyCat says:

    I’m just shocked she keeps getting good roles. She is not a good actress, and does not have a significant audience base to bring in lots of revenue. Another one of life’s mysteries.

    • ell says:

      i used to think she wasn’t very good, but after clouds of sils maria i changed my mind.

      • Hummos says:

        I also used to think she was a bad actress but then I watched her in Still Alice and there is something really believable about her interactions with the other actors. I don’t know my opinion has changed

      • original kay says:

        You know, me too. I used to think she was horrible, but then I reread Twilight (no hate) and she actually played Bella exactly as written. It was the character who sucked.

        We watched her in American Ultra and she was really good, fantastic in the role even. Great movie too.

      • Sunsetsnow says:

        Watch her in Equals. She’s good and getting better post Twilight. I am a fan!

      • Tiffany :) says:

        “she actually played Bella exactly as written. It was the character who sucked.”

        Exactly my thoughts.

    • TotallyOld says:

      So let me get this straight. It’s Cara who may be upset because she was dumped but no mention of Alicia who Kristen was so in love with just a month ago in her magazine interview. How is okay for a woman who moves from woman to woman on awhim to not get dogged by all of you for being a cheating, lying human. If this was a man cheating on his girlfriend, all of you would be up in arms over him cheating on his girlfriend or boyfriend. But, it’s okay for a bi-sexual woman to change partners and cheat over and over again. I don’t understand the mentality that believes that’s okay. And don’t say “we don’t know what her relationship with Alicia is, maybe they have an open relationship” because if anyone read her social media posts when Kristen was loving up on Soko you would know that Alicia was devastated and hurt. She sounded depressed enough to do something drastic. I hope Alicia has learned how it is with Kristen and no longer cares for her. She shouldn’t be anyone’s doormat.

      • blueb says:

        @TotallyOld, I agree… how come no one seems to bring up the constant overlap in Kristen’s relationships? No other celebrity seems to get a pass on that one, if there is even a hint of cheating, everyone jumps on that bully train… I feel really bad for Alicia Cargile. I don’t care how good of an actress everyone suddenly thinks Kristen Stewart is – she is still a sh#@y person to be in a relationship with.

      • Mac says:

        Kristen may have been happy in the relationship, when interviewed, but the interviews happen months in advance.

      • TotallyOld says:

        @Mac, no it was not months ago, it was August and besides it’s nothing new for Kristen. It’s not a one time event for Kristen, she’s done it before and will continue to do it because everyone thinks she is a “badass” and that’s it’s perfectly okay to cheat just because…..

  3. Amelia says:

    I’ve never seen anyone manage to wear pink eye make-up without looking completely baked at the same time, but I’ve enjoyed watching Kristen’s fashion choices on the festival circuit. Lots of hits and misses, but bonus points for experimenting and having fun with it.

    The consistent overlap in her relationships, however, deserves *major* side-eye.
    It’s really inconsiderate and downright sh*tty to keep doing that to people.

    • Tris says:

      I think looking baked is sort of the point of pink eye make up. Makes you look strung out and up-all-night. I see the punk coolness of it.

  4. Another Anne says:

    I totally agree about the pink eye makeup. It makes you look like you’ve either been punched in the eye, or are having a major allergy attack.

    Those pants could have been cool with the proper top. But that blouse is dreadful. I’m really over this blonde hair look on her. The color does nothing for her.

    • Deanna says:

      I’m allergic to grass, and have a reaction identical to her makeup when my allergy is triggered

    • G says:

      Pink — and red!! — eye makeup is consistently horrendous. Kristen looks ridiculous and I think she might know it. If she were in a campy surrealist movie set in the ’80s… Yeah, sure. Also getting a vague Hunger Games feeling from this.

  5. ell says:

    i love the trousers, and the top would probably be fine if it didn’t have that long sleeve. make up is horrendous.

    she’s doing well with her career, lots of young-ish actors tend to go for big protagonists roles that usually lack quality, whereas she picks good films (with the exception of the woody allen movie).

    • Algernon says:

      She already made her money with Twilight, so now she can be choosy. Robert Pattinson is doing the same thing.

      • TotallyOld says:

        Exactly Algernon. Neither want to be typecast as Edward & Bella. THey’re taking different paths to achieve the same outcome. Making prestige movies.

  6. Carmen says:

    Pants are great. Top is terrible. Hair and makeup a total fail. JMO

  7. Savreien says:

    I’ve pretty much loved her ever since I saw her in Still Alice. She was perfect in that film.

  8. Megan says:

    Love the way her hair is styled.

  9. serena says:

    I like her pants, the blouse and -above all- that haircolour/style has to go.

  10. Ali says:

    Not Bowie. She’s a deadringer for Brigitte Nielsen from that old James Bond movie from the 80s.

  11. Tig says:

    No one bats a thousand, and the reviews I saw re this movie were tepid at best. I like Ang Lee, but he seems to have lost focus or something. The theatrical trailer I saw for this was just a mess.
    Re this get up- toredor pants and a frilly top? And then all white? Not a good look on anybody.

  12. Splinter says:

    To me it looks like she has taken some makeup tips from St. Vincent. She just loves to match her SO of the moment, doesn’t she? She copied the eye makeup of her previous girfriend, shared clothes with others, that is just her thing.

    • D says:

      No, she didn’t. She’s been doing that red make up thing since Twilight promo. Did she copy that off rpatts?

      • Abby says:

        To be fair, she used to dress exactly EXACTLY like Robert.

      • D says:

        How? Jeans and tshirt? Didn’t know Rob created that look. WOW!

      • TotallyOld says:

        @D. You seem like a great Kristen fan so you must know how she dressed just like Rob back during Twilight days. In fact, she wore his clothes most of the time. She was wearing his sweats and his cap when she was snogging the director on the streets and in her car. She still wears some of his clothes that he didn’t get back from her.
        She also dressed just like Soko when she was dating her, Soko wrote several nasty comments on SM about her copying her style. It’s just a thing Kristen does, I guess you could say, she is indicating she admires their style so she imitates it.

    • Mac says:

      She is representing the Chanel line of makeup. She is the spokesman for the makeup, she is wearing.

  13. M says:

    She looks like Zuul in Ghostbusters

    • Cate says:

      Like Gozer actually, which technically is Zuul. Google it, the likeness is astonishing/hilarious!

    • Tully says:

      “Gozer the Traveler. He will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldrini, the traveler came as a large and moving Torg! Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the McKetrick supplicants, they chose a new form for him: that of a giant Slor! Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you! “

  14. Sullivan says:

    She looks gorgeous. I wouldn’t wear the top, but she manages to pull it off.

  15. Wren33 says:

    I’ve always loved her weird fashion. It doesn’t look “good” but it works for her.

  16. I Choose Me says:

    I actually really like her whole look here. No comment on her relationships. Just side-eye.

  17. D says:

    I hated it at first, then slowly warmed up to the pants, then i must say i actually think it’s pretty cool. The hair and make up really make it a ‘look’. I’m surprised she carried it off because she is so tiny, you usually need a tall woman like Cate or Nicole for this style.

    As for the St Vincent thing… i am FASCINATED! I hope it lasts a while!

  18. AngelaH says:

    I’m apparently one of the few that likes pink eye makeup. Actually, I love it!

    • Sabs says:

      I love her makeup here too! I think KS has flawless skin and is just so beautiful. It’s amazing what she can pull off. She seems fearless that way too, like she’s willing to try anything with her styling.

      FYI… the MUA behind this look is Beau Nelson. It’s all over his Instagram.

      • AngelaH says:

        She does have amazing skin and I think her eye makeup looks amazing. I will have to check out this MUA and get some tips!

    • madi says:

      I love it too. I think you can use any color in eyeshadow. It only comes down to technique and skills. I wish I could experiment with eyeshadowes but unfortunately my eyes are hooded.
      Kristen looks amazing. It’s a great look.

  19. hey-ya says:

    …has she had work done….am loving this look…

  20. poppy says:

    not bowie but definitely prince styling (minus the low classy safety pins)

  21. Abby says:

    aw I wear pink eye makeup a lot. oops. I think her makeup looks great, and I’m not even a fan or her. I wish her hair/shirt/pants weren’t all different shades of yellowish white. If the pants were a different color I would have liked the outfit.

  22. Bread and Circuses says:

    If it weren’t for the safety pins, I think it would sort of work. Even just a less-ratty looking silver adornment instead of safety pins. And I don’t like the sleeve, but it helps keep the rest of the top from looking like a mop made of lace.

  23. Tania says:

    Love her hair colour note that it’s been fixed and love her make up. Her hair and make up situation has never been better.
