Designers Camilla & Marc Dish On Dressing Kristen


Siblings-in-fash Camilla and Marc Freeman first launched their eponymous label at Australia Fashion Week in 2003. Fast forward 10 years and since their humble beginnings, you can find the brand’s signature minimalist silhouettes, tailoring and luxurious dresses in some of the most significant stores, and on the backs of some of the best dressed ladies in the limelight. “They are all innately chic, but with their own edge,” Camilla told us of their A-list following, “Each [of them] are confident young women, who know who they are and like to mix luxe casualness into however they dress.” Rihanna, Kristen Stewart and Miranda Kerr are in the club, but has there ever been a favourite? “Kristen Stewart was certainly one of them,” the duo admitted, “It was just when the Twilight-mania had begun to really take a grip on the world and because of that moment, we had a huge response internationally.”

Get Kristen’s Pretty Purple Manicure From The Kid’s Choice Awards


Kristen Stewart chose a fun, printed ensemble by Osman for the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards this weekend, and her manicurist Ashlie Johnson played off of the deep tones of the look to inspire Stewart’s metallic eggplant nails. “Her outfit was this gorgeous purple-blue that looks different depending on the light and angle, just like the nail color,” said Johnson, who chose Chanel’s Le Vernis in Taboo ($27 at, a gorgeous new violet shade that has a shimmer of red. And Johnson also offered a tip to prevent any manicure mishaps—like last-minute smudges. “Apply a thin layer of cuticle oil on top of the color,” advised Johnson, who has also painted the famous fingers of Naomi Watts and Rooney Mara. “If you bump one of your nails on the way out, it won’t dent the polish.” Great tip!

Kristen’s Academy Awards Beauty Rundown


Even on crutches, Kristen Stewart killed it on the Oscars red carpet. Beau Nelson created Kristen Stewart’s lovely makeup look for the evening, while her nails were tended to by celebrity manicurist Ashlie Johnson. Here’s how to get Kristen Stewart’s makeup and nails looks, respectively.

Inspiration: “Kristen’s dress is an ombre rosé colored gown with intricate Swarovski detail. I wanted to create a beautiful rose monochrome look with creamy skin, rose cheeks and rose lips. I even used rose colored shadow under smoky layers of taupe and brown to create a very diffused smoky eye,” says Nelson.

I started by prepping the skin with CHANEL Sublimage La Crème Yeux and CHANEL Hydra Beauty Serum to
hydrate the skin, layered with CHANEL Sublimage La Crème to give the skin a beaufful dewy glow. I used a sponge to
apply Le Blanc de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Base to the high planes of the face and under the eyes for a subtle highlighting effect.

I used two shades of CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Fresh And Hydra ng
Cream Compact Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15, and used CHANEL
Correcteur Perfecon Long Lasting Concealer in Beige Claire under the eyes to
brighten them.

I applied CHANEL Powder Blush in Tumulte to the apples of the cheekbones
and blended back towards the hairline quite low on the cheek to preserve the
highlights of the face. I finished by applying a translucent powder all over the face
except the tops of the cheekbones.

I applied CHANEL So Touch Eyeshadow in Rose Favorite, a rose
colored shadow, to the crease of the eye and all the way around the eye, with a so
brush to create a super so focus pink haze around the eye. I then applied CHANEL
Quadra Eyeshadow in Raffinement in smoky layers around the eye and into the pink
shadow I had applied before. I used the darkest shade near the outer edge of the
eye, top and bottom, to give it shape. I then applied CHANEL Stylo Yeux Waterproof
Long-­‐Lasng Eyeliner in Santal to the top lashes and blended it well.

I curled lashes and applied Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir top and bottom.

Lips were shaded with CHANEL Precision Lip Definer in Rubellite and CHANEL Rouge Coco Hydrating Crème Lip
Colour in Legende applied with a brush, but then blended slightly with my finger to create a so focus lip that wasn’t
too done.

Johnson’s inspiration was “goddess cool.”

“CHANEL Le Vernis Nail Colour in Emprise on the hands was a perfect match for her
pinky nude sparkly gown. To keep her inner rock star cool, and keep it from looking too much like a little girl, we used CHANEL Le Vernis Nail Colour in Western Light on her toes.

I soaked both her hands and feet then used CHANEL Gommage Microperlé
Éclat Maximum Radiance Exfolia ng Gel, massaged her with CHANEL Body Excellence
Nourishing and Rejuvena ng Hand Cream, cleansed the nail and applied CHANEL Base
Protectrice Protecve Base Coat, then two coats of CHANEL color, and finished with CHANEL Extreme Shine Nail Lacquer.”
