Chopped: Kristen Stewart Rocks a New Pixie Cut

Following in the footsteps of A-list counterparts JLaw and Emma Watson, Kristen Stewart has chopped off her long locks – and it looks good.

The Twilight star and former sweetheart of Robert Pattinson debuted her perfectly messy pixie cut yesterday at Chanel’s Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2014/15 show in Paris. Her shorter style also sported a hint of orange, said to be the result of a grown-out dye job from the actress’s upcoming role in American Ultra.

Shocking? Maybe if it were Jennifer Aniston, but from Kristen Stewart, we’ve come to expect the unexpected.

Cowgirl Up: A Look at Kristen Stewart’s Chanel Ads

Kristen Stewart – a self-described tomboy who famously favors chucks over heels – might not be the first person you’d pick to front a high-fashion campaign. Yet, her sepia-tinged images from Chanel’s Paris-Dallas collection surfaced today, and the results are stunning.

Now, this isn’t the first time the actress has fronted a major fashion campaign (she spent two years as the brand ambassador for Balenciaga’s Rosabotanica fragrance). But when she was chosen as the face of Chanel, well, I had my doubts. After poring over these images, however, I’m jumping on the KStew bandwagon. I mean, let’s face it: head-to-spur Western clothing could come off as hokey, but she brings just the right gritty intensity the look needs.

So when it comes to Kristen Stewart, high-fashion model, I’m sold. (Along with anything SXSW-related.)

Pack Your Baguette: Karl Lagerfeld Hotel to Open in 2017

It’s difficult to imagine the design genius behind two of the most innovative fashion houses falling behind where trends are concerned. Well, I’m here to inform you that the impossible has happened. Between Palazzo Versace in Australia and Armani Hotel Dubai, hotels designed by fashion bigwigs is hardly a new idea. But, as of earlier this month, Karl Lagerfeld has agreed to follow in his peers’ footsteps. That’s right – the Karl Lagerfeld Hotel, a 270-room, 20-story high-rise, is set to open in Macau, China in 2017.

Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

Awards season isn’t letting up anytime soon. Next on the list? The Oscars – and when it comes to Academy fashion, we’re totally on board with Hollywood stylist Brad Goreski’s dress predictions.

1. Jennifer Lawrence recently signed on for three more years with Christian Dior. So we all know what she’s wearing.

2. Goreski wants to see Sandra Bullock in Versace, and why not? Gaga isn’t the only girl who can rock it.

3. Claiming with confidence that Cate Blanchett will likely wear Givenchy, we think this stylist may have just have insider information.

4. Lupita Nyong’o has been lighting up the red carpet in American designs. So, Goreski thinks it’s time she works it the Parisian way – in Chanel.

5. We didn’t get a prediction on this one, but we’re putting our money on Amy Adams wearing Ralph Lauren.
