Wow. Really? Check out this photo of Kristen Stewart carrying a Chanel backpack, which just happens to come with a hefty price tag of $3,400. She was spotted with the fancy-schmancy bag in Paris -- and I should probably mention that yes, that's another, smaller Chanel purse she's carrying -- and she's wearing a Chanel sweatshirt.
Can someone please tell me what the heck is going on, here? Am I missing something, or is adorning herself with designer accessories totally out of character for KStew? Oh, that's right. She's the new face of Chanel and was headed to a photo shoot when this pic was taken. But still.
Sure, she has her signature casual, grungy look going on with the jeans, hat, and sneakers -- but the bags just seem so out of place.
I don't know why, but I was always under the impression that high-end stuff was kind of beneath her, as odd as that may sound. She just doesn't seem like the type of person who is into flashy or pricey things, though I guess we can't really blame her for glamming herself up a little for once.

She certainly has a bank account big enough to afford this stuff, so it's not like she's styling herself beyond her means or anything like that. (Not that she paid for the bags herself.)
Still ... I'm just not sure I can get used to the idea of seeing Kristen in anything remotely indulgent.
Part of her "charm" is the fact that she acts like she doesn't feel the need to impress anyone or throw her money and fame in anyone's face. Which is kind of what the Chanel overload does. (Even if she is being paid to wear this stuff.)
