Well, we probably should have seen this coming. While promoting her forthcoming film, Clouds of Sils Maria, at the Cannes Film Festival this week, Kristen Stewart debuted an accessory that was not only fitting in terms of her personal style, but also contractually so: Chanel Couture’s highly buzzed-about and handcrafted sneakers.
True to Stewart’s red carpet M.O., she walked Cannes’ red carpet in a pair of nude pumps before changing into the kicks in question at the film’s after-party. While her red carpet heels certainly vibed with that sequined jumpsuit (also by Chanel), it was the sneakers that made her tomboy outfit a memorable one.
As the face of Chanel’s Southwestern-influenced Metiers d’Art Paris-Dallas collection, Stewart will likely be in head-to-toe Chanel until her Karl Lagerfeld muse-ship expires. But if this particular look is any indication, this partnership is going to be a remarkably chic one.
