Twilight star, Kristen Stewart, was spotted at the 2013 Met Gala looking red but not-so-hot. Had she remained true to her trademark edgy look, she would have probably bagged the Best Dressed title at the punk-themed night, but instead, she fell flat on the red carpet with her Star Trek-meets-Vampire Diaries look.
The charge sheet
Although her hairdo suits the theme perfectly, it appears flat with too much gel on it. We would have appreciated more volume on the front without a side-part. Letting her beautiful hair down would have definitely been a bonus.
Matching your eye make-up with the colour of your outfit is often the first intuition but if that particular colour is red, it’s better left on the palette! That overdose of red powder around Kristen’s gorgeous green eyes looks less like an eye shadow and more like she has had a viral eye infection. We would have instead preferred a smokey gold eye make-up with some well-defined eyeliner.
No doubt jumpsuits are number one on 2013’s trends list but Kristen made the wrong choice. We love the colour and the embellished lace detailing but the stiff silhouette makes her look heavy around the hips and is totally unflattering. A sleeveless flared bottom jumpsuit with a deeper neckline would have been a better pick.
We hardly see any accessories on our vampire’s dream girl except for that uber chic gold box clutch. We understand that any kind of chunky accessory would have simply clashed with the heavily worked outfit but nevertheless; we would have appreciated some gold studs on those bare ears and a ring on that finger.
Kristen is wearing a pair of matching maroon patent court shoes with gold spikes on the back and we are guessing it wasn’t a great shoe day after all. How about some pointed stilettos or peep-toes Kristen? We thought so…
The Resident Evil wonder woman, Kate looked absolutely dazzling in a fuchsia DVF jumpsuit and a pair of Louboutins at the Film Independent Spirit Awards. She topped off her stunning look by letting her hair down in a wavy blow-dry and wearing a chunky cuff bracelet.
If there is anyone who can pull off a punk rock look to perfection, then it’s Disney’s favourite Hannah Montanna! She kept it bang on trend with the structured colourblock Valentino jumpsuit, strappy heels and luscious red lips at Maxim’s Hot 100 party.
Hollywood actor Rose Byrne looked ravishing in a feminine, white lace jumpsuit at the SAG awards last year. Despite the bold neckline, heavy embellishment and that ever-so-stylish bob, Rose was a treat for the eyes!
