    Steal Her Look: Kristen Stewart

    Dark, rebellious, yet elegant and sexy – we reveal Kristen Stewart’s wardrobe mystery

    Outside her Twilight actions, Kristen is famous for rebelling against conventional fashion rules. While other stars bear the pain of 5inch Jimmy Choos, Kristen swaps designer heels into none other than Nike sneakers.

    ‘Fashion pariah’. That is what Hollywood stylists call her – refusing to work with her for she keeps it low profile. For Kristen, it is almost always substance over style.

    On a daily basis, she is happily spotted in old track pants and loose tops.

    When she really has to, however, Kristen dazzles with her porcelain skin, high cheekbones, and almost-flawless figure. No wonder designers are competing to have their dresses worn by her – Roberto Cavalli, Oscar de la Renta, Marchesa – you name it all.

    Carolina Herrera did not seem to have any problems dressing Kristen with the out-of-the-world wedding gown for Twilight’s Bella Swan wedding.

    We adore her attitude – dress it down for daily activities, but look your best when you really have to!

    For the weekend, we show you how to get Kristen’s minimalistic sexy look in black and white from Glamour photospread in November 2011.
