The Runaways Fashion
In New York City to hype the release of their rock flick The Runaways, Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart(Fanning plays Cherie Currie, the all-girl band’s lead singer, while Stewart channels Joan Jett) told us how the vintage costumes helped transport them back to the days of the pre-punk era. “I’ve never played that kind of character before,” said Fanning, who sports school uniforms and denim jumpsuits in the film’s early scenes but later struts the stage in fishnets, platform heels and barely there lingerie. Her favorite fashion moment? “Putting on a corset and performing ‘Cherry Bomb’ was the best,” she says. To channel Joan Jett, Stewart underwent a real-life makeover, cutting off her tresses and dying her crop black. The actress’s resemblance to Jett’s teenage self resulted in a few surreal moments for the present day rock icon. “She really does look a lot like me in the film,” said Jett of Stewart’s dead-on portrayal. “Except I didn’t wear leather all the time. And I don’t think I ever wore leather pants!”
In the Joan Jett-inspired movie, The Runaways, Kristen Stewart plays the music legend, Dakota Fanning plays band member Cherie Currie—and they both look incredibly ’70s chic in this exclusive, never-before-seen photo from the set. “I designed The Runaways eyes around Make Up For Ever shadows,” said Robin Mathews, makeup department head. For Stewart’s smokey eyes, she smudged a mix of black liner and metallic taupe and brown black shadows on the lids. Fanning’s eyes were rimmed in navy blue liner and topped with copper and blue shadows.
