It’s been a minute since we last heard from Kristen Stewart—and after dealing with an injured foot at the Oscars, girl probably could’ve used a break! So needless to say, we were psyched to see the actress out at tonight’s 2013 Kids’ Choice Awards, turning heads in a major way. Dressed in a navy blue shorts outfit designed by Osman Studio, K.Stew looked KILLER, that much is obvious. While we all know she can rock floor-length gowns like a pro, and it’s also a well-publicized fact that she loooves to go cas in sneakers and a t-shirt, the cool thing about her outfit here is that it actually straddles the line between the two. Part off-duty K.Stew and part ultra-glam movie star, these easygoing shorts plus classic black pumps are the perfect combination. It’s not the first time she’s eschewed a dress for shorts at events, and the leggy look is a formula that obviously works.
Oh, and about that rad fishtail braid! Full disclosure: we’ve spent way more time than we’d like to admit watching how-to YouTube videos on creating a fishtail braid. We clearly haven’t mastered it quite yet, but consider Kristen’s amazing version at the Kids’ Choice Awards enough motivation to REALLY buckle down in front of the laptop and get. it. done. She kept her braid loose, with a couple of placement tendrils— almost like she skipped the brush and just combed it through with her fingers. Granted, it probably took a team of people and several hours to get the result just so, but it LOOKS effortless…and that’s what matters most, right?
