Red Carpet Redo: Kristen Stewart Edition

I love all things vampire. Anyone that knows me is well aware of my life-long obsession with these creatures of the night. From the classic Bram Stoker book to the more up-to-date cult favorites like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, if it's about vampires I'm there like a bear. So you can imagine how completely out of touch I feel when I know absolutely nothing about the Twilight series. Yep, that's right, I live under that famous rock everyone keeps referring to. OK, I do know a little about the plot, but I suppose the fact that these books were geared toward teenagers explains my lack of enthusiasm. As for the films, all I know is that the cute guy from Harry Potter and Jodie Foster's daughter from Panic Room are in them. So there you go, I'm a clueless dork.

Speaking about the young actress from Panic Room, I can hardly believe the grown up Kristen Stewart and her are, in fact, one in the same. After seeing Kristen and Rob Pattinson's Harper's Bazaar photo shoot, I realized this young woman has the potential to be quite the fashionista. Her body is made to wear the best high fashion has to offer. At her new film's London premiere, Kristen chose an outfit fresh from Proenza Schouler's Spring 2010 collection.

The scuba gear-inspired blouse and skirt are not my favorite pieces from this collection, and frankly, not the most flattering for Kristen's slightly boyish frame. Instead, I would've preferred to see her in one of these mini-dresses. The flouncy black overly on the indigo dress is great for the evening and works well on a square body frame. The pattern, coloring and twist detailing on the second dress would help Kristen look more sexy.

I was hoping to see the actress sporting a chic evening clutch, but I was sorely disappointed. Something like Judith Leiber's Rounded Minaudiere would be ideal. Let's be honest, there's nothing like a little "bling" to help elevate a look from just plain old chic to downright fabulous. So, ladies, keep these fun, modern Proenza Schouler dresses in mind come spring and use the remaining months to save up for one of these flashy clutches. They'll run you a mind-numbing $3000.
