Fame10 Fashion Evolution: Kristen Stewart
MTV Video Music Awards – 2008
Kristen Stewart looked like she was trying to dress her age at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards. She wore this Derek Lam mini-dress with Sergio Rossi Marissa cut out pumps. While this is an improvement over the matronly dress that she wore to the “Into the Wild” premiere, we still aren’t crazy about this mini-dress. Also, what is going on with her hair? It looks like it hasn’t been washed or brushed.
At this point, Stewart was on her way to becoming a superstar. She landed the part of Bella in the “Twilight” franchise. The movies were based on Stephanie Meyer’s bestselling books of the same name. Like most of her other film roles, the critics gave her performance in “Twilight” mixed reviews. Some praised her for capturing “Bella’s detachment, as well as her need to bust through it;” other others called her acting “wooden” and her facial expressions “blank.”
MTV Movie Awards – 2009
The “Twilight” star showed a bit of her rebellious side at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards. She rocked this red black taffeta Yigal Azrouël dress, which featured black embroidery, with a pair of black high top converse sneakers. We like the dress – it looks great on her. The shoes, however, are a bit of a problem. She really should have gone the extra mile with a pair of black heels but, you know Kristen Stewart, she doesn’t like to fit in. I guess we can respect that.
Her career was really taking off in 2009. She reprised her role of Bella in the “Twilight” sequel, “New Moon.” Again, critics gave her performance mixed reviews. While Jordan Mintzer from Variety called Stewart “the heart and soul of the film,” praising her for giving “both weight and depth to dialogue,” Manohla Dargis from The New York Times said Stewart’s “lonely-girl blues soon grow wearisome” and Billy Goodykoontz from The Arizona Republic called her “a huge disappointment.”
