Stewart joins a bevy of celebrities from Ellen Page to Jody Foster and Ellen DeGeneres who routinely wear clothes inspired by mens’ fashions.
Several are openly gay and Kristen has been dogged by tabloid rumors lately that she is switch-hitting with Cargile, her long-time assistant. None of the rumors have been substantiated.
But she sure looked the part at Stella McCartney’s Autumn 2015 presentation in New York City on Monday.
Kristen chose to wear one of McCartney’s more masculine designs. She donned a black structured suit jacket with matching slacks and glossy men’s style loafers. She wore a white v-neck sweater underneath.
Kristen spent the holidays in Hawaii with Cargile. They were spotted holding hands and Kristen also draped her arm around her as they enjoyed the islands, fueling even more rumors about her sexuality.
They were also spotted out together over the weekend.
Stewart, 24, was obviously feeling a little defiant when she posed for photographers with a deadpan look in New York. She also clashed with paparazzi and fans at LAX airport when she returned to Los Angeles from her vacation.
As far as relationships go, Stewart, of course, is best known for dating her “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson. They broke up in 2013.
These days, Stewart is one of a growing list of celebrities who openly embrace bi-sexuality and lesbianism in what can only be described as the latest Hollywood fad… lesbian chic.
But the question has to be asked: Are celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Rihanna and others merely using lesbianism as a publicity tool and a way to express hipster coolness and nonconformity?
For celebrities who have come out, androgynous seems de rigueur. Ellen Page has taken to wearing little man suits ever since she came out as gay last February at the Human Rights Campaign’s “Time To THRIVE” conference for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Youth.
Ellen DeGeneres, who is also openly gay, rarely wears anything but androgynous clothes inspired by men’s fashions.
When actress Jodi Foster came out she also switched to androgynous clothes, but these days she also frequently wears feminine fashions.
Sara Gilbert, 39, best known for her show on the hit sit-com “Roseanne,” came out in 2010 and also wears androgynous clothes almost exclusively.
A more open and accepting climate in Hollywood makes it possible for gay actors to come out unlike any previous time in film history. That suggests androgynous fashions are here to stay and may go mainstream in 2015.
