These. Pants. Are. So. Awesome.
Kristen goes Balenciaga bold at the ‘On the Road’ Photocall at the Cannes Film Festival last month! She loved her Balenciaga foilage top so much that she decided to wear the pants in the same pattern! This is why I love her most: she is not afraid to take risks – fashion or otherwise! Printed pants are the hottest spring and summer trend right now and are an absolute MUST in your closet! A black blazer is a seasonal staple to have as well, and here she makes the Rebecca Minkoff piece look so comfortable by dressing it down with a white Juicy Couture tank!
Keep your look clean with simple jewelry, adding a long chained necklace and a single skinny bangle. The pants are busy enough, so you want to keep it looking fresh…more like you’re showcasing your impeccable fashion sense instead of trying to get people to notice the flowers covering your entire lower half.
This look is sophisticated, yet playful and I am all for spicing up the work week with unique statement pieces!
Do you look this cool at the airport? I think Kristen has beat us all with her super-caschh travel attire! After filming the last-last-last shots of Breaking Dawn Part 2in Vancouver with Rob, Kristen was spotted wearing a novelty version of the popular “Perfume” logo from Hollywood Made, her red low-top converse, and her Leisure Society shades.
I cannot even begin to describe how easy this is. You actually don’t even need me to tell you how to recreate this, but I thought I’d share some of my ideas below in my collage! I’d obviously go with a feather gray hoodie with black strings if possible, or I’d find a perfume logo sweater like the faux-Chanel one. That – or you can never go wrong with Victoria’s Secret PINK collection.
Totally rocking this look as I travel this summer!
I love this! It looks SO easy and so natural! I’m definitely bookmarking this on Youtube to try it sometime! You can see how they were inspired by the poster!
Don’t you just love it when Kristen makes an oversized striped polo look sexy?
In her new photoshoot with Garrett Hedlund and Sam Riley in Jalouse Magazine, Kristen makes Claudie Pierlo stripes and Prada polka dots look more than appealing (I guess the name-dropping would do it). I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been one to gravitate toward either. However, she makes me want to make a bold move like this!
I find her 3 color-block striped Tommy Hilfiger polo very playful and comfortable, yet structured. Because of the uniqueness (is that even a word?) of the shirt, It would be hard to find one just like it. Don’t let that derail your inspiration! Take a look at some similar striped items below and remember the next time you’re out to find classic patterns instead of solids!
Did Kristen not look kick ass on Tonight with Jay Leno this month?! Appearing on the show to promote ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’, Kristen opted for a Rebecca Minkoff three-quarter sleeve blazer with a Dolce & Gabbana James Dean graphic tee underneath, and ditched the jeans for leather J Brand. Let’s just say she rocks blazers on that show like it’s her business! *three snaps*
Not only is this easy to re-style for yourself, it’s an outfit that you can wear year-round! A lightweight red/orange blazer over any old-hollywood celebrity graphic tee (can be found in thrift stores, retail stores, or department stores – very common t-shirt style) paired with thin pleather or vinyl pants or leggings (such as these) say, ‘I’m badass without trying too hard because I always dress like this’. Also note that this outfit doesn’t require heels and actually looks better without them – yay! Points for comfort!
Keep the makeup you wear light and don’t go too heavy on the black eyeliner unless you’re really going for that out-on-the-town approach. Kristen manages to look fresh-faced by letting her outfit be the statement instead of raccoon eyes. Stick with neutrals such as browns, peaches, and golds. Gloss on that shiny lip color to mix the bold with the beautiful!
It is LondonStew once again this week with Kristen promoting ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ in the UK! Remember when Kristen showed up to the Mulberry Spring/Summer ’12 Fashion Show in London last fall and the fashionistas in us all passed out from shock/bliss? Yeah. That day.
One of my favorite Kristen dresses, this Mulberry Belted Neely Dress with a drop waist and three-quarter sleeves is light and airy for spring and the powder blue instantly softens up anyone’s wardrobe. Of course, Kristen found the perfect combination of pixie chick and badass by wearing Mulberry black braided ankle booties during the show.
The key to this look is to find that perfect dress with the low waistline, quarter-length sleeves, and scoopneck. The similar dress below is sold online at Target and is an affordable price of $18.00! That’s about… $850.00 less than Mulberry! *high five* Pocket that change and buy some Nars Cream Eye Shadow to complete a light blue smokey eye like Kristen!

Okay, ladies! If you didn’t love Kristen’s Stella McCartney get-up at the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards this month, then you must get with the trends! This royal blue color is everywhere this season and Kristen knows it!
Kristen in Stella McCartney at the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards
To be successful at mimicking this look, just make sure you have a little (preferably a lot) of blue lace in your shirt, skirt, or dress, and voilá! For the most flattering look, find a dress with a belt or piece of fabric to create that empire waistline. Dig those blue pumps out of the back of your closet and bring them to the front of your wardrobe for the spring! I promise you’ll get your use out of them this season!
Don’t be afraid to match your shoe color with your dress perfectly or wear a completely different color nail polish than what’s in your outfit – you can see here that it works for Kristen! Now you can make it work for you, too!
