    Kristen Stewart Is Just Thrilled To Be Wearing These Leather Chanel Hot Pants

    She looks great. And she's actually smiling.

    Everyone's favorite sourpuss Kristen Stewart attended the fall/winter 2013 Chanel Haute Couture show in Paris.

    She is sat front row alongside — deep breaths — Vanessa Paradis, Michael Pitt, Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale. (Rihanna was also in attendance, but sat somewhere else.)

    Here she is posing outside pre-show in a quintessential tweed Chanel jacket and leather microshorts.

    Karl Lagerfeld may have even loaned her a pair of his very own fingerless leather gloves.

    This is unlikely, however. KStew probably has her own pair.

    You may be wondering why the backdrop looks like a building site. Kristen is wondering that, in fact.

    That "deep in thought, scratching my head" pose is no coincidence.

    It's probably ironic, juxtaposing Chanel's haute couture finery with a pile of old slate.

    Karl likes to do that sort of thing.

    And Kristen totally gets that.

    It's like presenting one's highbrow acting chops amid a campy vampiric franchise.

    Right?

    Ok no, not really.

    Oh, and one last thing: would KStew ever really wear this outfit if she weren't almost certainly being paid by a fashion brand to do so?

    Paid some major $$$, that smile says. (After all, she's the face of Balenciaga fragrances right now so it's not like she's attending out of branded loyalty.)
