Was Kristen Stewart the best-dressed woman at the PFW Chanel show?

Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2017-2018 - Chanel - Arrivals

It should be obvious by now that I have little respect for the House of Dior these days, but you probably also know that I also loathe most of what Karl Lagerfeld has done to Chanel. On one hand, Lagerfeld has had a lot of success at Chanel, and Chanel – as a label/brand – still has an enormous amount of cachet and power. Lagerfeld understands marketing and he’s not afraid of growing the brand and bringing in new blood and fresh talent. On the other hand, Lagerfeld’s designs are often struggling, unflattering and kind of awful. So imagine my surprise when I was looking through the Chanel photos at Paris Fashion Week and… I didn’t really hate these clothes? Not all of them, although of course there are a few questionable looks.

Katy Perry brought her mom to the Chanel show, which is kind of sweet. Katy was also given a sort of bizarre “suit” to wear. The pattern on the fabric looks a lot like… the x-rays of astronauts? Maybe? And the suit consists of a three-quarter-sleeve jacket and a skirt over knee-high shorts? In any case, I weirdly do not hate this.

No, I honestly don’t know what Cara Delevingne is wearing. Lagerfeld loves her for some reason and I really don’t get it. She doesn’t fit with Chanel at all.

Here’s Kristen Stewart, wearing what other outlets are referring to as a “catsuit.” Are we really calling it that? It’s, like, a onesie? A really flattering onesie that makes Kristen look kind of awesome. I never knew a onesie could be so stylish, honestly. Kristen looks really great here (and her short hair looks so much better than Cara’s).

Tilda Swinton in a very strange kind of pantsuit, and yes, those are pants. Like, hyper-palazzo pants. I would wear the pants and I would wear the blazer, but not together. I would wear the blazer with jeans, and I would wear the pants with a t-shirt. And I would wear those fug slippers when hell froze over.

It’s kind of cool that Julianne Moore got the little black minidress while a younger woman like Katy Perry got the more classic “Chanel suit/lady who lunches” look.

    Claudia S. looked good too.

  2. Tanguerita says:

    Stewart looks ridiculously amazing here.

  3. sash says:

    With the exception of Julianne Moore, this page is pretty much a color chart on the different effects you’ll get when you leave your toner on for x-amount of minutes. Pretty much 50 shades of peroxide.

  4. Goats on the Roof says:

    I don’t care for capri length pants on anyone, so no I don’t like like Kristen’s look. I think they all look a hot mess.

    • Sarah says:

      I hate Kristen’s catsuit. Really looks awkward in my very humble view. I like Tilda’s jacket. That is all.

  5. astrid says:

    No thanks. I guess I’m not a high fashion person. wouldn’t wear any of this

  6. Pumpkin Pie says:

    I didn’t know what to expect, but I like what KS’s wearing. I can’t say though if it’s one piece or two pieces masterfully combined. If it’s one, I can’t imagine what going to the loo is like. Does the wearer need an assistant? Is the piece hanging down the floor when she’s taking care of the business? Is there a Channel zipper in the crotch area?

  7. Abby says:

    Dang, saying it again. I like Kristen’s look. She looks great with short blondish hair and I really like her outfit. I’m not a KS fan at all but she’s really upped her style lately!

  8. Aren says:

    I can’t stand Lagerfeld, but I love how Katy looks.
    Still, Katy and Kristen should’ve switched clothes, I’m sure they both would have been more comfortable.

  9. Abby says:

    Also, out of all of these I think I would wear Claudia’s outfit. It looks comfortable and chic.

  10. Kk says:

    They all look so much better than the dior crowd.

  11. OSTONE says:

    I would wear what Claudia and Julianne are wearing. The rest are fug! What’s going on with the Paris Haute Couture houses?!!!

  12. slowsnow says:

    Sometimes I go to charity shops that only have brands and this is the kind of outfit they have. You see Dior, Chanel, Rykiel, Dolce & Gabanna and your heart goes boom and then… you take the item and a) you have no idea how to wear it b) you secretly think someone sewed a Dior label onto a totally bonkers fashion student project reject.

    Katy looks like Cara’s a fatigued mother.

  13. khaveman says:

    Katy Perry has aged herself 15 years with that look. The edgy mother of the bride? The weird suit getup? The shorter hair doesn’t work for her like it does for Cara or KS.

  14. Sage says:

    Kristens stylist picks the best Chanel looks for her. I Ike Caras look too.

  15. zinjojo says:

    So remind me again which fashion week this one is…I know it’s not fall or spring fashions being shown, so is it winter? resort? How many fashion weeks are there now?

  16. Elisa the I. says:

    Kristen Stewart looks amazing, the only thing I don’t like is the fugly tat on her right arm.

  17. serena says:

    I’m kind of over the short blonde hairstyle, especially on Katy (it looks awful on her). I don’t like Kristen’s outfit, she’s too slouched out and doesn’t deliver.. also the pant part is a big no, they look like sparkly leggins.

  18. Gaby says:

    Katy looks terrible and at least ten years older. Kristen looks beautiful and fresh from the neck up but the capris do nothing for her figure, IMO.

  19. Cupcake says:

    Kristen looks incredible. Side note – I miss the posts on Karl’s cat!!

  20. MyHiddles says:

    Katy Perry looks best dressed. For one.

  21. edith says:

    no, julianne looks like the lady who lunches. I’m kinda happy that Karl Lagerfeld does something different with chanel than the same old same old tweed esemble (he still does that but we also see new designs like the astronaut print which I love and k-stews jumpsuit (it looks dope but at the same time like she will have her tiddies out in a sec)
    anyway I honestly think all those ladies look good, and julianne looks the most boring (but still okay)

  22. detritus says:

    Kristen and Cara look sexy.
    I hate everyone’s sunglasses. Including Sparkle’s glasses from yesterday.

  23. jugil1 says:

    Kristen’s hair looks flattering on her.
