Kristen Stewart, is that you? While talking to Marie Claire UK about her ever-evolving red carpet style, the 23-year-old Twilight Star admitted there was one premiere photo that absolutely makes her cringe. Can you guess the one KStew is referring to? We'll give you a hint: She’s young, she’s blond, and she’s rocking a trench coat. That’s right! We’re talking about Stewart’s picture at the premiere of her flick Panic Room 12 years ago, where the young actress starred alongside Jodi Foster.
Stewart now considers the tragedy of her style as harrowing as the suspense thriller she was promoting at the time. "It's like a popular image to show from when I was younger, you know, like, 'She was a kid!'" she told the magazine. "I look at that and I'm like, 'Oh... my... gosh.'"
The actress attempted to explain what was going on in the adorable photo from 2002. "I had like these baby hairs and I was being weird about them, so I was like, 'I'm just gonna cut them off.' And I had like these little things poking out from under my hair and behind my ears, and a ridiculous outfit. I did not know how to get dressed up at that age at all — I didn't even know what I liked," Stewart said of her 12-year-old self. "It's just funny to see like that goofy kid version — [because] when I should really be looking at old school photos, I'm looking at a red carpet photo."
The Snow White and the Huntsman actress went on to say that she knows she shouldn’t be embarrassed of the awkward photo because she was a cinema newbie. “I was so young, but it doesn't even matter how young you are. You're just so, so embarrassed."
But my has Stewart come a long way from her days in loafers. Currently, the silver screen star is the face of Chanel’s Paris-Dallas 2013 Métiers d'Art Collection, which will be released in May 2014. "Karl Lagerfeld has chosen Kristen Stewart to be the face of the upcoming campaign of the 20131/4 Metiers d'Art Paris-Dallas collection," a company press release said, confirming the news.
So how does it feel to go from rags to couture? "It is a good feeling, though, when you get it right and you can walk tall," says Stewart. "It shows — everyone can see that."
