Whether you loved or hated Kristen Stewart's ruby red floor-length Proenza Schouler gown at Monday night's Met Gala, there is no question the starlet, who obviously prefers jeans and sneakers to ball gowns, always makes what she wears her own.
Whether it's designer minidresses paired with her Converse flats or modern takes on Gothic gowns, K.Stew definitely infuses her own personal style, for better or worse, into a world of celebrity look-alikes.
But even our Kristen needs a little help sometimes...
Cue K.Stew's stylist: Tara Swennen.
"Tara has been working with Kristen for years," a fashion source who's always at the top of most of the A-list events tells us. "She helps Kristen put together outfits for every event she goes to."
Well, every event except for the Met Ball, where Kristen was dressed by the Proenza Schouler design duo of Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough, who doubled as her dates for the evening.
While most celebs hit fashion's biggest event in feminine gowns encrusted with bling, K.Stew took a different approach with a business-in-the-front, party-in-the-back red and black, boldly patterned number that was almost upstaged by her sexy heels, also Proenza Schouler.
And to add to her different look, K.Stew accessorized with a pair of 19th century Berlin iron, scrollwork bracelets by Fred Leighton.
"Kristen definitely has a point of view in her fashion choices," adds our fashion insider. "Her style isn't overly girly; she likes to be comfortable but still look cool. She knows what she likes."
Hmmm. Our fashionista-type insists she wasn't being bitchy, but sincere. Guess we're just so used to people crapping all over K.Stew we're just gun-shy at this point. Regardless, why do we get the feeling K.Stew likes a chill night at home with Robert Pattinson more than a fashion-forward event? That isn't to say that the girl doesn't know how to girlie girl it up once in a while.
"Kristen has worn Proenza before and always love to wear Brian Atwood heels when dressing up," adds the celeb-fashion vet. "But some of her other favorite brands that she wears often include Chanel, Reem Acra, Roland Mouret, Emilio Pucci, Prabal Gurung and Burberry Prorsum."
Oh, hell, do what you want, Kristen ‘cause the only audience that matters is already waiting for you at home!
