What a day. That is all i have to say, i have been trying to write reports and ID her outfit all day. We're at that stage of the year where the majority of Kristen's outfits will be from the fall 2010 lines. We *may* even see some Cruise 2011 in there depending on her personal choices in clothing. There may be an issue with getting a hold of some defaults as some of the clothing she is wearing may not be available yet. Yes I've said it many time and I'll say it again, the advantages of being Kristen Stewart. Now on with the outfit.
Never in my whole life has a skirt caused me so much annoyance. Seriously that skirt is absolutely fabulous but trying to ID that skirt is a nightmare. My first thought was Balenciaga, Elizabeth and James or Versace. I've been sitting all day trying to finish the huge mass of work i have to complete by tomorrow and Kristen's skirt keeps distracting me. After a few hours it was discovered to be by Jenni Kanye and is a modification of a longer skirt from her spring summer collection (thank you to @kstewartnews for confirming this via Jenny Kanyes twitter). Lets talk about the outfit as a whole, i loved it. Did you? If you actually read what i write both here and on twitter you will know that i absolutely adore yellow so when this skirt (even though it annoyed me all afternoon) appeared i was blissful. I love the structured back of the skirt, despite the skirt being bright yellow leather with a large side zip it almost adds a feminine touch to something that is slightly edgy. Her tee is by Market, she has been wearing alot of their t-shirts since March and guess what? It's only $32 here is the link if you want to snag yourself one before they all sell out : http://www.market-ts.com/shop.cfm/Tee-Shirts/Short-Sleeve/003/. This tee complimented her skirt beautifully, i think if she had chosen a dark black one it may have made the look too dramatic so the charcoal grey suits perfectly. Her shoes are from the Sergio Rossi Fall collection and i took this picture from the press room section of his website, if you scroll along to the lace up ankle booties you can download the picture. Here is the link for anyone who wants to browse the website: http://www.sergiorossi.com/int/en/footer/press_area.aspx i love the shoes and Kristen wears Sergio Rossi so well, it seems to be one of her favourite shoe brands as it has been popping up frequently since New Moon promotion. I'm glad to see the return of her Seiko watch its been absent for a little while along with the rest of her rings. I loved this whole look it was bright and i really want Kristen to bring in more pops of colour throughout this press tour. Also did anyone else think she looked fresh faced? Loving the side ponytail as well, a fantastic way to kick off the promotion tour steeze.

*This post is dedicated to one of my followers, i can not find your tweet but you sent me a picture of a 1950s look and asked if i was doing this. Here is is and it's for you let me know if you liked it.*
Kristen Stewart is set to begin filming 'On The Road' this August a film based on the novel of the same name by Jack Kerouac. The film will see her playing the role of Mary Lou a rather sexually driven character. This is a different role for Kristen and will see her play a more mature and sexual character, i personally am excited to see her in this role as i believe it will be the role that will take the Twilight label off her. Twilight is a huge part of her life but it isn't the best acting role we have seen her play and i feel this role will allow fans who are mainly aware of her for Twilight to see her for the true talented actress she is.
“Marylou was a pretty blonde with immense ringlets of hair like a sea of golden tresses; she sat there on the edge of the couch with her hands hanging in her lap and her smoky blue country eyes fixed in a wide stare because she was in an evil gray New York pad that she’d heard about back West, and waiting like a longbodied emaciated Modigliani surrealist woman in a serious room. But, outside of being a sweet little girl, she was awfully dumb and capable of doing terrible things.” - On The Road
The narrative is dated at 1947 and the book was written and published in the 1950s making this the era of fashion for the movie. This is probably one of the reasons i am excited for this movie, the fashion. 1950s fashion is perhaps one of my favourite fashion eras and to see my favourite star in this kind of clothing........ i simply have no words. Kristen has never really starred in a more period piece of work so for my readers who are not familiar with this era of fashion this post is dedicated to taking a look back and looking at potential looks for the movie. The character i believe will have a more beat up look through out but this is just general overview of the fashion era for you to look at. I see her in more casual clothing from this time, maybe more beat up dresses but given that her character is seductive you never know.
The late forties was an era in time where the country was moving in a different fashion direction after the recovery of the war. Glamour returned with Dior single handedly bringing an end to the war time clothing with the christening of a new look. Knee length skirts, draped dresses, clinched waists, emphasised bust lines and padded hips became a key feature in clothing. Pencil skirts also became an alternative to full bodied skirts.

Gloves were a key feature to women's clothing and a women were not properly accessorised without gloves to finish their look. Gloves were either cotton, sometimes chiffon and leather for those who could afford them.
Late 1940s Glove Styles
The shoes of this era were often very high with rounded or peep toes. By mid 1950 we saw pointed toe shoes become more popular with some standing at 5 inches tall.

Balenciaga were first to show the 'pillbox' hat which became the hat of the 50s and later the hat of the 60s. It featured veil which covered part of the face giving way to the 'new look' glamour.

*I hope this helped, i am ridiculously excited for filming to begin to see how they dress Kristen. I have not yet read the book but i plan to do so this summer before filming to get a better grasp on the character as a whole. This is just a general report on this fashion era during filming i may post a more detailed one.*

Morning! I woke up this morning to new Kristen pictures, i'm quickly blogging this before i head out to see Sex and the City 2 so if there are any add ons i'll take care of that later on this evening. First off Kristen looks adorable (hello freckles) and second hello necklace! It is so tiny though i literally have not one clue what it is.......... nice present though, nice and unique i'd say. Wonder where she got it from ;)
Kristen looks casual and mighty cute here in a simple outfit consisting of black skinny jeans (i'll get back to you on that one later) and a Simdog zipper tank. This tank has been worn before by Ashley Greene, i swear the Twilight cast get sent stuff in bulk because they all end up with similar shirts, tanks and sunglasses. I love this tank even though we didn't get to see more of it (maybe we will when she arrives in Austrailia?) it looks so comfortable yet has the edge that makes it Kristen. Her hoodie is her favourite ECStar 'Nuns with Guns' hoodie and her shoes are Vans Saddle Sid shoes. These shoes seem quite rare, i haven't seen any pictures of them elsewhere but Kristen seems to have a thing for bright canvas sneakers. She carries a Izaac Mizhari Fall 2010 Coat that we have seen her wear before back in NYC when she was pictured outside Regis and Kelly. The coat has been slightly modified for Kristen, ah the advantages of being Kristen Stewart. To finish off she carries her favourite Nike All Access Lair Backpack and tops it all of with a cute black beenie. Such a cute look.
On another note, Eclipe promotion is about to start and you all know how excited i am for the steeze we will see. Australia here we come, i can't wait to see what it has in store for us. I'll meet you there ;).

UPDATED - Arrival in Sydney
Upon arrival Kristen wore her same travel outfit just changing her shoes from the Vans saddle sids to Vans prision shoes. What can i say? The girl sure loves her Vans shoes.She also slipped on one of her favourite pairs of sunglasses, the Mont Blanc MB214SW sunglasses. I love them, they seem to be her 'go to' sunglasses when she doens't have her Ray Bans. Oh and also i can't believe i never mentioned this yesterday but hello rings! It went over my head i was so suprised (and happy) to see the return of the spoon ring i missed it! I'm hoping she'll debut some killer rings during Eclipse promotion......i know i'm aiming high but you never know. To the people asking on Twitter and such about the beanie, yes i'm very aware it looks familiar and may be borrowed for a handsome young man but we'll leave it at that and enjoy the pictures ;)
