Arriving at her third Met Gala, amid a couture red carpet crush and screaming press, Kristen Stewart rocked a fiercely, individual Balenciaga A-line mid-length dress with upper black and silver asymmetric detail, and red, black and blue skirt panels. It was a bold, modern choice for the actress, complemented by punky white and black pumps – also by Balenciaga.
Accompanied by Balenciaga head designer Nicolas Ghesquiere, Kristen is also the newest ‘face’ of the fashion house’s fragrance lines. Some Kristen Stewart fans had travelled from all over the world to get a glimpse of her, and online reactions suggest most were delighted by the actress’s ensemble.
To detractors, it’s probably worth saying this: if the point about fashion is to wear the clothes and not let them wear ‘you’ – then tonight, Kristen Stewart rocked it. Hard.
