Kristen Stewart’s Red Carpet Chuck Taylors Explained
Ever wonder why Kristen Stewart wears her Converse Chuck Taylor sneakers on the red carpet so much? Now we know!
Much has been made about Kristen Stewart’s habit of wearing her Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star sneakers on the red carpet. Is it appropriate? Is it NOT appropriate? Is it some kind of weird affectation or eccentricity? Does she just not care?
But now we can finally stop our speculation, because we’ve got an answer: She likes to wear her Chucks on the red carpet because she can sign more autographs for fans wearing flats than she can in foot-killing heels. That… makes a lot of sense, actually.
“I just so wholeheartedly disagree with people who don’t like what I wear,” the Twilight star told Vogue recently. She says that she dislikes people who are “more concerned about looking pretty in your heels, and so you’re walking slowly down the line. Put a pair of sneakers on.
Of course, this DOES beg the question of why she hasn’t bothered to find a comfortable yet red carpet-worthy pair of flats; but given that I tend to wear my own sneakers unless I absolutely HAVE to wear something more formal, I can’t really give her too hard a time about it. Besides, it’s nice to know that she’s actually got her fans in mind here.
And there you have it!
