Kristen Stewart geared up to promote her new film Happiest Season in what we’ll call the best celebrity WFH press look we’ve seen so far.
The actress, who stars alongside Mackenzie Davis and Schitt’s Creek’s Dan Levy in the new Hulu movie, worked with her stylist Tara Swennen on a colorful, laidback look that she put on for an appearance with Levy on the Today Show.
As you probably know, lounge sets are having a moment as most of us (apparently actors too!) are moving from the bed or couch to a desk for a Zoom call, all within 30 minutes. Celebrities, they’re just like us.
Swennen and Stewart were sure to give this look a sportier touch with the addition of Nike Cortez sneakers and an open button-down shirt from COS that reveals Kristen’s ribbed cashmere bra, also from COS.
A pair of cerulean slacks from St. John broke up the relaxed basics, and Stewart added a chainlink choker necklace with a lock pendant, opting for a few silver rings and a wet hair look.
While the finishes may not be as edgy as we’re used to seeing Stewark pull off on the red carpet — i.e. studded pumps, sheer panels, and a fistful of chunky jewelry — they help her appear like the homebody version of herself, and that’s really all we expect right now.

Kristen Stewart and Dan Levy Leave Us With All the Winter-Coat Envy in Their New Film
Hulu’s new original holiday movie Happiest Season stars Kristen Stewart, Mackenzie Davis, and Schitt’s Creek’s one and only Dan Levy. The Clea DuVall-directed film’s storyline is so real that it’s obvious we’ve been missing it from our ranks of historic seasonal favorites — Christmas With the Kranks, Home Alone, The Holiday, Love Actually, and the list goes on.
Kristen plays Abby, who goes home to meet her girlfriend Harper’s family, only to discover that they don’t know she’s gay — or that Abby is more than just her roommate. Abby promptly panics and calls her best friend, John — played by Dan — and the narrative unfolds from there.
It’s relatable like the characters’ outfits are relatable, all brought to life by costume designer Kathleen Felix-Hager, who confirmed that just because fashion is not the movie’s focus doesn’t mean it isn’t hugely important.
“[Clea DuVall] had a very specific vision for all of the characters and we worked closely together to create the looks,” Kathleen told me. “Each character had a color palette and a silhouette that we adhered to.
It was very important to keep the characters feeling like real, authentic people and to keep the costumes as classic as possible, since Christmas films live on forever.” It’s true that this is one holiday film that will definitely remain relevant, and Kathleen’s right in that there will never be a time when the winter coats and holiday outfits here do not feel timely.
In fact, the outerwear — from plaid coats and dinner jackets to bombers and beanies — is arguably the best part of the movie.
“Outerwear was super important — one because it’s Christmas and it’s freezing and also because it helps to define the characters,” Kathleen said. Every coat does, in a subtle way, help to distinguish personality traits in the film.
We see that most with Harper, who has a strong sense of self when she’s alone with Abby before they get to her parents’ house. But when we see her swap her sophisticated camel coat for a flannel throw-over that she probably pulled out of a childhood bedroom drawer, she is withdrawing from her relationship to be the person her parents have assumed her to be.
Kathleen enjoyed working with the entire cast, which also includes Aubrey Plaza, Alison Brie, and Step Brothers’s Mary Steenburgen, but really loved collaborating with Kristen Stewart, whose Christmas dinner party outfit is reminiscent of tailored pantsuits from the star’s iconic red carpet looks past.
“She is really smart and has great instincts regarding her character. . . . Kristen and I went shopping together one weekend and had a blast!” Kathleen said.
Ahead, Kathleen was kind enough to break down the coat closet and fill us in on all the winter outerwear you won’t just appreciate during the movie, but admire enough to shop and wear forever. Because like we said, this holiday rom-com deserves a spot in your top five, now and always.
