Get the Look: Kristen Stewart's Joan Jett-Inspired Style!

Richie Buxo/Splash News Online

From dying her hair black to her new rock ‘n’ roll style, Kristen Stewart is really getting into character. While filming a Joan Jett biopic, Kristen has adopted a uniform of vintage rock tees and skinny jeans, and has even gone so far as to hang out with the rock legend she is portraying. (We can hardly tell them apart!) While this new punk look is genres away from Twilight‘s Bella Swan, we think Kristen totally pulls it off. Just yesterday, she turned up to Comic-Con in another Chaser T-shirt featuring early-’80s hardcore punk band Minor Threat. And what’s better, it’s totally affordable!

Gabby on

Love her new look. Way hard core. Get away from Bella, far away. HAHA

lisa on

she has a joan jett vibe! straighten the hair more, add sharp bangs and they’re twins

sureha on

it realy does show the real her but also love the look

Emily on

Oh, god. I hope people don’t go out and buy that Minor Threat shirt just because she wears it.

Listen to the music, people >.<
Minor Threat is a good band.

jaimie on

while she may be filming ‘joan jett’ i think she favors extreme eye make-up. she looks strung out, grungy and unattractive. as ‘bella’ she is able to achieve a simple form gorgeous.

grunge vs gorgeous? let’s remember you are a role model for young girls and teens…

Hey Jaimie….I don’t think Kristen gives a rat’s a– about being someone’s role model..people should find their own course in life and figure out what works for them…heavy makeup for the Jett movie? No. She looks great no matter what she wears or how much or little makeup she puts on…Do you wear your makeup the same way every single day of your life? BORING, BORING, BORING. Snooooooooze.

Chelsea on

Joan Jett and Kristen Stewart look so alike…I could barely tell who was who.

emmy on

what was she thinking? she is so awkward and her hair just shows that. I love Kristen but with all the people she is surrounded with can she not have a better haircut?

Brooke on

in my opinion she looked SO MUCH BETTER with her redish brown hair i loved it but now she ruined it she looks to old for me like seriously killed the whole bella look i liked that one.
this ones ok as far as the clothing goes but her hair is ridiculos.its a disater, a horriblely complete jaw dropping disater.
i miss the old kritian and i want her least the hair(:

jireh on

Kristen can pull out any hairstyle.. That’s because she is naturally beautiful..
For those who hated her.. your just so jealous because she is so stunningly pretty and talented!

glassy on

Kristen Rules! She is so beautiful, no one can imitate her beauty. She is so gorgeous.. She is sexy and hot without much effort. She is just so pretty.. love those eyes.

Brooke on

Im not trying to be judgemental and Im about a decade older than this girl but in every pic I see her in she looks strung out and tired. Im not saying she needs to cheese it up w/ a fake smile but the empty expression is troubling, esp. over and over again. Is this normal?

becci on

i honestly dont thnk she cares about being a role model either shes on pot for god sake and she was before she went joan jett esk! and she way suited her other look so much more than this

Yvonne on

This is a part she is playing. Give her a break!

sheldonjames on

she’s way hotter minus the sparklehumping style.

Ett on

yuk throw up in my mouth. the style is ok but her hair is horrifying

kaka on

She has a rat face. Enough said.

Joan Jett on

i think she is not suitable to play the role of Joan Jett in the new Runaway’s movie. First of all she doesnt even look like her and second when she “acts like joan jett” ITS ALL AN ACT!

Scott on

yea i dont think it should be misunderstood as a “fashion statement” you wear bands merch if you love and support that band. and as far as the comment below…who cares if she looks kinda “grungy” shes not bella swan, bella swan is a movie character from the twilight series. she is an individual just like all of us, your opinion is a closed minded one and if you dont think shes a good role model, boycott! its your american right. as far as the 22 dollar minor threat t-shirt goes, make sure you buy it for the right reasons and give the band a listen. be legit people. “ive got straight edge!”

heather pattinson on

i think kris is rockin’ that hair and she looks great.she always looks great!!i just love her style.she’s my role model i love her!i agree with the kstw crew

Danielle on

I love her hair im getting my hair cut like hers!!! you rock kristen!!!!!

Jenna on

I agree with this one other post I saw, in that I hope people don’t go out and buy this Minor Threat shirt just because she’s wearing it. They are a great band, so listen to them :) Also, I really love Kristens hair how it is now. I mean, her old hair style was pretty, just because she’s a pretty person. But it was just like every other hair cut. This ones rad. And she probably didn’t even decide to get it cut this way, cause its for a role. Kristens an awesome actress, even though I don’t particularly care for Twilight.

sara on

I’m straight and a girl and I think she looks sexy lol

Dana on

Honestly I’m not sure who she is but I met Joan in person twice and this girl looks NOTHING like her except for having black hair. She looks totally Irish, and Joan does not. Anyone can dye their hair black but NO ONE can copy Joan’s unique style. This girl doesn’t even come close. Probably most of the posters here don’t even know who Joan Jett is!
