Best MET Androgen: Kristen Stewart
In Stella McCartney. And before you go clutching your Reese Witherspoon pearls, remember it was Punk Night at the MET Gala. So even though this might not be your flavour, at this event anyway, it’s better than Michelle Williams and Blake Lively and Emily Blunt and Katie Holmes and oh my God, Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson.
With the exception of Jessica Pare, which was tragic anyway, very few attendees punked out in pants. Kristen Stewart not only chose pants, she also played up the androgyny. Sure, the crotch area isn’t a great fit, but I’m not sure that wasn’t intentional. Fitted pants would change the tone of look entirely. Fitted pants would swing the outfit over to the feminine. Her sex appeal here isn’t in the feminine or the masculine but in what can’t be defined. There’s a natural raw hardness to Stewart -- it reminds me of my beloved Gia Carangi -- that McCartney is bringing out in her styling. It’s why she looks so much more comfortable and confident here than, say, in comparison to that sh-tty Reem Acra gown that she wore to the Oscars. Click here for a refresher. Why was Kristen Stewart down-dressing in Reem Acra anyway?
And for those of you wondering about Robert Pattinson -- he wasn’t at the event but she left with Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge, Pattinson’s best friend, and apparently met up for dinner afterwards.
