Creating a “best dressed” list is always a controversial endeavor, especially given how passionate people can be when it comes to fashion. So the fact that Kristen Stewart has been given the number one spot on Glamour UK’s Best Dressed Women 2012 list is sure to raise a few well-plucked eyebrows. Stewart has always been a bit of a wild card when it comes to style, so it’s surprising she ranked quite so high on the list.
That’s not to say she hasn’t had stunning moments because she most certainly has, but she still tends to prefer wearing her boyfriend Robert Pattinson’s T-shirts to gorgeous gowns. This girl wears what she wants, where she wants, which includes shifting over to sneakers at the Breaking Dawn Part 1 UK premiere in 2011. While it’s nice to see someone in Hollywood elect for comfort over style, how does that make her the best dressed woman of the year?
The 22-year-old star beat well known style gurus Emma Watson (who placed second), Blake Lively (who placed seventh), Diane Kruger (who placed 28th), and Jennifer Aniston (who was ranked at No. 30). Shockingly, even the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton only managed to place fourth on the list. Talk about a royal snub.
Am I the only one who thinks this doesn’t make sense? I get how Stewart deserves praise for her Twilight hayday, but does that qualify her for a Best Dressed victory? Somewhere Joan Rivers and Tim Gunn must be having heart attacks.
