For the 2013 Met Gala, Kristen Stewart had a decidedly "girl power moment." The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala this year for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibit was themed as such, and celebrities in film, fashion and more turned out their most punk looks for the night of glitz and glamour.

Kristen Stewart's wardrobe stylist Tara Swennen opened up about the inspiration behind the Twilight star's rough-around-the-edges look. The 23-year-old went with a jumpsuit for the 2013 Met Gala red carpet instead of a dress and chose a red lace-effect Stella McCartney number.
"For Kristen Stewart... we started about a month out by figuring out who [she was] with. We loved the idea of Stella McCartney for Kristen because she hasn't gone with a girl before, so we were having our girl power moment," Tara Swennen told Stylecaster.
The creative process between the stylist and Kristen Stewart for the 2013 Met Gala red carpet look was easier than anticipated. "We went over the sketches via email - and it was unanimous decision that we really liked the jumpsuit. Stella had given us the option of doing it in black or green and the cranberry red color that we ended up going with. Kristen went back and forth between the red and the green - and we just decided we loved it," Swennen said, adding, "Her hair is a little bit reddish right now, so we thought it would complement it well."
Stewart's eye makeup and dark shoes on the 2013 Met Gala red carpet grounded the lace effect and put it into edgier territory. Lace was more sexy than sweet for Kristen Stewart! A pulled-back hair look polished off the jumpsuit. The punk theme for the 2013 Met Gala for PUNK: Chaos to Couture was of course a huge inspiration in the look.
"The main thing for me is that the girls feel comfortable and in their element. With Kristen, the theme was perfect for her, that's why we thought the pant was kind of cool and different from a gown," the stylist, who also dressed Teresa Palmer for the event, said. "The pantsuit was definitely her interpretation of punk. I knew a lot of it would be hair and make-up, since Kristen doesn't accessorize that much, so it had to be in the outfit as well as the beauty. Kristen doesn't have her ears pierced or anything so I tried to add a studded heel for a little bit of a punk edge."
