Here’s a little story for you:
Back in the day, I had a go-to Halloween costume–a Robert Palmer Girl. You know, one of those blank-faced live-action mannequins in the Addicted to Love video? Fun, easy and a little bit tarty, right? That is until I received one single comment which made me never want to put on that particular
everyday outfit Halloween costume again.
“Julia!? I thought you were DRESSING UP for Halloween!”, a party-goer scolded. “I AM dressed up“, I hissed right back at the woman. Very nice. I guess I ALWAYS look bored and wear too much lipstick.
The Classic Robert Palmer Girls
My point? Exhibit A: Kristen Stewart at the premiere of her film, “On The Road” during the 2012 AFI Fest presented by Audi at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre a couple nights ago Hollywood.
KStew in Balenciaga and Red Lips
KStew‘s rocking a straight-from-the-runway Balenciaga black trousers/white bra-top ensemble, and pointy black Louboutins along with some serious burgundy/oxblood makeup. Frankly, I’m digging her look. I’m weary of the “accentuate your eyes OR your lips–never BOTH“-law. I realize we don’t need to doll up just to run out to Ralph’s (yes, we do), but come ON.
I say Kristen Stewart is a big, fat HIT…especially with her raised brow and side-eye.
