Chanel ambassador Kristen Stewart has always worn those double Cs her way. The red-carpet rebel, who makes traditionalists clutch their pearls at the sight of her unbuttoned bouclé, brought her punkish brand of cool girl to the latest Metièrs d’Art show. The plot twist? It was in Manchester.
The thought of K-Stew chanting football anthems at a Man City game (the pre-show entertainment laid on by the house, complete with Chanelified shirts and scarves) is brilliant, but kind of makes perfect sense? The Spencer actor, whose style leans left field, but remains unequivocally glamorous, arguably has more in common with the north’s Madchester style history than the other Chanel ambassadors (see: Sofia Coppola and Tilda Swinton, who were also in attendance).
In the event of the show itself, she was classic K-Stew through and through. Modeling a mishmash of silver chain necklaces dripping down her open black-and-white tweed pleated dress, the mood was LA comes to the Northern Quarter–a fresh sprinkling of red highlights in her choppy fringe only adding to the Hollywood-goes-local charm.
