What I like about British Glamour Magazine's Best Dressed Woman of 2013 AKA is her willingness to try something new sartorially. Sure, in her downtime she mostly sticks to classics – well cut skinny jeans, plain tees, a soft hoodie or two, but who doesn't? Like most of us, it's when she dresses up that we get to see Kristen's more adventurous fashion persona.
While she's always willing to experiment, Kristen has a few recurring themes when it comes to evening wear, such as a gauzy fabrics paired with black lace usually worn with a smoky eye. You can take the girl out of the vampire flick, etc. However, as the Huffington Post has reported, at Thursday's Zuhair Murad couture runway show in Paris she found a way to make her signature look seem new again.
I love the 90s surfer babe hair - great side parting! And obviously, the ruched top half of this jumpsuit's killer. But what do we think about the sheer lace pants? I'm undecided - I think Kristen gets snaps for going for it, because if not in your early twenties, then when? But does it work?
The Huffington Post also featured photos of Kristen's fashion evolution and it was great to see how much she's grown into her style. Whatever you think of the way she dresses, you have to admit that she's got a distinctive style that's completely her own - something you can't say for a lot of the identikit actresses on the red carpet in blandly tasteful strapless gowns. I've posted a few of the snaps below:
Keeping things simple in a white shirt and pale denim.
The beginning of Kristen's luxe grunge daytime look.
Trying out a more tailored style at a film festival.
The beginning of Kristen's love affair with showing off her enviable gams.
Pretty in prints!
The beginning of Kristen's style as we know it: a mix of feminine and rock-chick stylings.
Going for a more glamorous red carpet look in a sweeping gown and elegant up-do.
Looking on trend in rock-chick metallics and clashing bright blue nails.
Looking stylish in sequins and working a tried-and-trusted smoky eye.
My favorite look of the bunch - great tailoring paired with fluoro yellow shoes to make the outfit pop.
Who's this scarlet screen siren? Crimson lips + crimson dress = perfection
Futuristic and fantastic! I love the bright colors, pale lips and the beachy hair.
What do you think of Kristen's style evolution and that daring pantsuit? Let me know thoughts, feelings, comments below!
