Forget all the pretty studded 2013 Met Gala gowns for a second. Forget those strategically-placed cutouts and ubiquitous “I’m so punk by NOT being punk!” lines, too. Right now, let’s all focus on Kristen Stewart, who decided to wear a Stella McCartney jumpsuit on the red carpet tonight, and boy, did she ROCK it. It’s only fitting that the former Runaways star would pay sartorial homage to “Punk: Chaos to Couture” in true K.Stew fashion: by not smiling and wearing pants (and not surprisingly, schooling everyone on her fave punk songs…). And this time, her no-nonsense casual attitude meshed perfectly with the night’s theme.
Sporting a burgundy jumpsuit covered in lace embellishment, the jaw-dropping outfit might be a surprisingly minimal look, but it’s definitely one that’s guaranteed to stand out in the sea of spikes, studs, and metallic accessories. Well, she MAY have had spikes on her black pumps, but the only accessory the actress brought with her was a small gold box clutch. No earrings, no necklace, nada! Keeping her beauty look in tune with the outfit’s bold color but still playing into the minimalist vibe, Kristen heated things up with a red smoky eye and left the rest of her face totally porcelain. Now, we’ve gotta talk about the hair…
She might be a fan of high ponytails and fishtail braids, but it’s a rare occasion when K.Stew goes all out with a slicked-back coif. We’re glad she got the memo about the whole “Costume” portion of the entire night, and dressed for the theme rather than playing it safe with classic red carpet go-tos. Although, Kristen, if you start wearing jumpsuits on the reg now, we probably wouldn’t complain one bit.
