Kristen Stewart took a quick trip to Paris to take care of some fashion business. Reports have her meeting with fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld regarding her duties as the face of Chanel's Paris-Dallas Métiers d'Art Collection line to be released this May.

Stewart was also doing a bit of promotion for the Balenciaga fragrance Rosabotanica. She talks style and more in an interview with Refinery.
Read a few highlights of the interview below and the entire interview here.
What do you love best about working with a brand like Balenciaga?
"If I wasn’t in the position that I’m in, I don’t think that I’d be able to find these sides of myself. I’m a pretty basic, practical dresser. But, you know at the same time when I go to an event or participate in a photo shoot or am involved with something like this, it can really make me aware that I have those things in me somewhere.
What about your personal style? Any tips to low-maintenance chic dressing?
"I'm such an L.A. kid. I always forget to wear socks — I'll be outside, like, 'Oh my god, I'm freezing!' I feel so un-chic. I feel like that's kind of my thing. Like, 'Oh, whatever, I'm gonna go to Paris, but I'm not gonna change my T-shirt.' But, I don't really approach it too much in my daily life. I have things that I gravitate towards, like I like things to look worn in... I don't really put too much thought into it."
One thing we've been loving lately about the red carpet is how we've moved away from this cookie-cutter notion of beauty — tanned, blonde, glamour waves, red lips — and are starting to see much more celebration of unconventional beauty. What are your thoughts on that?
"I think it's awesome. As soon as you start viewing all of this as anything more than just something fun and creative to do, and you feel like there are notes you have to hit to satisfy a certain thing, then why are you even doing it? You should be driven by something that you admire. You should be driven by impulses that are, you know, like experimentation. You should mess with things and find it naturally rather than trying to create this product.
"I feel bad for people who feel like they operate from this place of fear when you really should be risky and make mistakes. The happy mistake is always the one that's the best, when you go, 'Whoa, that is just different. I've never seen that, and she is rocking it.' I'd rather be around people that love what they do and that are really good and really artistic rather than, like, technically pretty looks. Pretty is never what you want to go for."
