Kristen Talks About Her Style in ELLE UK Magazine February 2013 (Scans + Transcript)

Transcript

I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A TOMBOY. I wanted to look like my older brother when I was younger. I lived in hand-me-downs and was always borrowing his clothes. My earliest fashion memory is cutting up an old pair of Levi's and going to careers day at nursery dressed as a rock star.


MY FILM COSTUMES MEAN A LOT TO ME. I usually take one or two things from each film as a souvenir. It's fun to put that suff on; it reminds you of good times. I have my armour from Snow White and the Huntsman and still wear the T-shirts from The Runaways; I gave the leather jacket I won to Joan Jett, the Blackhearts frontwoman [who I played in the film], with a note scrawled on the back in white pen.

IT'S CLEAR WHEN I DON'T LIKE MY OUTFIT. I've always worked with the same stylist, Tara Swennen, who I love, but I've definitely had fashion regrets, which I can't reveal - I'd hate to offend anyone. But I'm way more comfortable now. The other day I realised I do actually have more than one pair of jeans and a T-shirt. I have some cool stuff that I need to start wearing.

I LOVE STELLA McCARTNEY. She's so talented and I'm drawn to simplicity - I'm not really into adornments and decoration. If you were to mix Patti Smith (1) and Brigitte Bardot (2) to make one person, she would be my style icon.

MY MOST TREASURED ITEM is the leather jacket Balenciaga gave me. I would be devastated if I lost it. I live in it! It started off fairly sturdy but now it feels like a blanket.

FASHION INSPIRES SELF-DISCOVERY. I first met Nicholas Ghesquiere [ex-Balenciaga creative director] on a shoot six years ago. Our interests go hand in hand. What I love about my job as an actress is that you can discover aspects of yourself that are really surprising and fashion inspires you in exactly the same way.

MY FIRST FASHION SHOW was Burberry a/w 2010. Claire Danes was sitting across from me, which was very exciting. I love her! It opened my eyes to the world of fashion. It's so cool to look at a fashion show as a whole because they're like little movies, every single detail is carefully considered.

MY JEWELLERY IS ALL INSANELY AND DEEPLY IMPORTANT TO ME. I have all the rings that I wore as Bella in Twilight, including her wedding ring. My other treasured pieces are mainly vintage and a Cartier 'Nail' bracelet that I wear a lot.

PERFUME IS LIKE AN ACCESSORY. I'd never worn a scent before I tried Balenciaga Florabotanica, but like clothes can make you aware of different aspects of yourself so a smell can elevate you. There's something hot about it - a little heated and slightly more dangerous than the name suggests.

    1. as far as I can rememeber she never mentioned the bracelet before, so we can only guess ;), but I think she either bought it herself or it's from Rob since this bracelet costs $30,000

    2. I heard that Rob gave it to her when they were in Cannes. It's his way of saying "you nailed it" at the On The Road showing. He also gave her the necklace that she always wears and , of course, the gold ring that he gave her for her birthday in 2010.( she has made reference to these in interviews for Snow White.

    3. @anon5:09 Since nothing happens these days I have nothing better to do but 'join' the speculations.:) I always thought the ring was a gift for their 1 year anniversary since Kristen is not wearing it in May 2010 at the MET gala (after her birthday). I first saw the ring in June pictures (and I do think they got together somewhere in May/June 2009). But this is pure speculation. Maybe I missed some pictures or something else, idk. :) As for the Cartier bracelet, I have no scenario, I just noticed two days ago that she wears two of them in the Jalouse photoshoot with Garrett. :)

      PS Did she mention the ring also in the SW interviews? I only remember the necklace. :)

    4. The "Nail" bracelet is also from Rob but she had it before Cannes. She mentioned in an interview once that that bracelet means a lot to her because it reminds her of a person (I'm guessing Rob) but I can't remember who she did the interview with.

    5. Hi IB!

      She started wearing the ring after Rob and Kristen left Budapest, where Kristen visited him on her birthday because he was shooting Bel Ami there at that time. You can see her wearing it at the Oprah Show in May 2010, but on her left hand. I was always wondering why she had it first on her left and then on her right hand.

      And she mentioned the ring in her Elle(US)interview in June 2012.

      Quote: And the gold ring circling her index finger? "Everyone wants to know," Stewart says shyly. She shakes her head. "Everyone knows already - it's ridiculous."

      So she didn't mention Rob namely but it's so obvious what she meant.

    6. I also think that the gold ring was a birthday gift, when you zoom in you will see a symbol of the Aries zodiac sign engraved. I loved how she describes her jewelry as INSANELY important as opposed to just saying important :)

      I don't know when the necklace started appearing but I know that the inscriptions translate to something like 'my heart/love is with you even if we are apart' or something to that thought :)

      I love how she thought of going as a rockstar in NURSERY. Only Kristen.. Some people are just born cool.

  4. I love just hearing her talk. Especially about her jewerly... Just say'n.

  5. She's perfect......a tomboy with a class and a heart. Kristen wears what she's comfortable with not what everybody's wearing according to the fashion magazines in order to blend in. She's got her own style which identifies who's she really is as a person.

    1. I agree with you! I admire her.

    2. I love the way she dresses its down to earth

  6. I wonder where she keeps that armour from Snow White and the Huntsman? Also, she forgot to mention her "other" treasured jewelry is the necklace. She wears it a lot :D - just as much as she does the "Nail" bracelet.

    1. I think she's including the necklace when she mentions her 'vintage' pieces of jewelry that are particularly special -- it is a vintage Cartier locket, I believe. Also, she mentions the SWATH suit of armor as being just one of many items from her different movie sets that she kept & has 'on-display' at her home in the most recent interview she did with Jay Leno for the Tonight Show as part of BD2 promo (Nov 2012). She also alluded to the pink g-string she kept from the Welcome to the Riley's set as being on-display, as well! LOL

  8. Thank you.I think it's great to know that she grow into more confident and learn to embrace fashion.I love her style even she don't try harder it's like natural on her it's relatable and simple.

  9. wish she would stop talking about keeping stuff from SWATH. So disrespectful to Rob. especially if they live together.

    1. Have to admit I cringe a little anytime Kristen mentions SWATH. Loved the movie but it is tainted for me now even though I don't really think Kristen had an affair. Still stirs up bad memories. Sorry.

      Delete
    2. They have all moved on. Maybe it's time you did too..

      Delete
    3. Get over it! Everyone involved has moved on and if you can't then that's your problem not anyone else's. How old are some of you people? You are not a part of THEIR relationship nor do you get a say. Who are you to say what is or isn't appropriate, especially between 2 people who are obviously more mature and professional than the whole of this fandom of young and old (enough to be their parents in some cases)??

      It's clear that they aren't cringing and freaking out, and if it were an issue it would be between them and I doubt there would've been a mention. So you can continue to act like a 2 year old at the mere mention of Snow White and the Huntsman but I doubt R is stamping his foot and taking a tantrum. And K worked hard and should be proud because anything less is the bigger FU to all the people who worked hard on it Charlize, Chris, Sam, all the crew from lighting to sound, etc. One person doesn't make the full experience of film, and if you can't get that then it's unfortunate for you as you may be someone that lets one thing ruin entire experiences for you throughout life.

    4. oh come on anon 6.27....she is an actress and she is proud for every movie she has done...she is not disrespectful to rob because she talks for her job.if she never mention it again it would be disrespectful for her as an actress. it has nothing to do with what happened in the summer...they have both moved on and she is even planning to do a sequel for SWATH...kristen and rob have moved on....you should too.

    5. To Anon 6:27. I wish you would stop presuming you know what transpired back in July. Kristen, as well as Rob do and from the look of things, whatever did happen is irrelevant and insignificant. She worked hard on that movie as she does with all her films. She is proud of that film as well. It's childish to think that she should never speak of SWATH again because of what people think they know. Thankfully, her mate is bigger and brighter than that.

      Delete
    6. I believe in Kristen as a genuine, kind person. She wouldn't say something intentionally to hurt someone, esp. someone she loved. She mentioned SWATH several times in other interviews recently. She'd be clever enough to avoid the topics if that would cause any pain to people. So I doubt that what happened in last July is really what media has shown to the public. At least it's not as serious as it's shown. Ya.. so we should move on as R/K have moved on.

    7. WOW! I really don't think these verbal attacks on someone for expressing their feelings is appropriate. You call 6:27 immature but the other comments are just as immature.

  10. She looks so good in jeans and a tee!!Love her for what she is ,shes totally brutally honest and she worked as hard on SWATH as on any of her other movies.I dont think one should take that away from her.One can believe what they want to,but its a fact that SWATH is what it is because of Kristens hardwork along with her other coactors as well.She deserves to be proud of that movie coz she rocked in it.I want to see SWATH-2 only for her.

  12. Ugh every time she mentions SWATH I cringe for Rob.

  13. yes love k style comfort over fashion. thats always been my style too. i was also a tomboy too but now evolving more into fashion. so, k reminds me of myself. love her. in answer to swath comments, i know kristen never cheated on rob. we were duped back in july. come on people do u really think k would take a role in swath 2 if she cheated and rob forgave her. she would turn it down out of respect for rob. her people would suggest she turn it down to keep public reaction from tainting the release. and universal might feel just to risky to keep her on. k can talk about swath openly and carefree because she, rob, her family and friends know it was all fake and soon the public will know too!

  14. how do you get Elle FEB 2013 in jan ? its not even publish yet ?

  15. Can we all just move on, please? Whatever happened is done and over. As for her style, I love it. I was a big tomboy when I was growing up, still am. I think she has a great balance between the fashion side and her everyday look. She looks gorgeous no matter what. I truly believe she could be in rags and look amazing. I loved the interview.

  19. I SO wish ALL of Kristen's & Rob's fans the world over could come together & hold hands, uniting in a peaceful circle, & pass around one BIG, FAT JOINT... so we could all just R-E-L-A-X & let the past be the past. We all need to stop pretending that we know jack shit about either of them personally, or what has transpired in their relationship over the years... AND we need to give up the hope that we will EVER really know, because we won't... & that's exactly as it should be. Can we just learn to be thankful for the small glimpses of 'heaven' we get to see captured on camera on occasion as they look into each other's eyes, or share the simplest of touches? Can we just let that inspire us to love the people in our own lives a little bit better, a little more purely, my sisters & brothers?? AMEN. :-)
