Kristen Stewart recently reminisced her love of Manchester bands such as Oasis and Joy Division during an appearance at a Chanel show via NME.
It has been noted that the moment took place when the actress, popular for her role as Bella Swan in the Twilight franchise , arrived at the Chanel fashion show taking place in Manchester on December 7.
The event is the annual Métiers d’Art show, which was introducted in the UK city for the first time for the 2023 installment. The new location was chosen as the region is widely known for its rich music history – the origins of acts including The Stone Roses, Joy Division, Buzzcocks and Oasis.
Now, as part of an interview with I-D magazine, actor Kristen Stewart has recalled her love of the city and excitement that the location is “the birthplace of Oasis”.
“I would have been so sad if I wasn’t allowed to come to this particular show because I feel like… I feel like this is my juice,” she told the outlet when asked about which part of the show she enjoyed. “Like I am such a California girl so, the sort of sharpness and intensity of the tailoring.”
“This is the birthplace of Oasis,” she later exclaimed. “This is like… The Smiths and Joy Division. You couldn’t get me going faster than listing those bands.”
Around 600 guests were in attendance for the show in Manchester last night, including more famous faces from the entertainment world such as Tilda Swinton, Hugh Grant and director Sofia Coppola.
