Kristen Stewart is a "fashion chameleon".

Kristen Stewart's stylist Tara Swennen is happy to oblige her client's need for comfort.

Over the years the Twilight actress has developed a habit of ditching stylish but painful designer stilettos and stepping into cosy sneakers on the red carpet, and Swennen has learned to accept the star's preference for tennis shoes.

"I'm always happy to oblige (the shoe change)," the stylist tells Us Weekly magazine. "She goes through a lot of pain, so at this point, if she's comfortable, I'm happy. We start with a beautiful heel, and then comfort is key for all of us. I love it. It's her thing now!”

Most recently Stewart swapped her black Christian Louboutin pumps for a pair of tattered denim sneakers while walking the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday (17May16) for the premiere of her movie Personal Shopper.

Both shoe selections complimented her white Chanel dress - a natural frock choice for the star, who has served as an ambassador for the French fashion house since 2013.

Swennen has been working with Stewart for 11 years now and the fashion professional has helped the star fill her closet with several types of sneakers made by popular brands Converse, Keds and Vans, among others.

Swennen absolutely loves the clothing diversity challenge Stewart poses for her, as in addition to finding comfortable casual outfits for her client, she is also constantly on the hunt for fabulous couture frocks.

"I think her aesthetic changes every month!" Swennen smiles. "She loves to play with fashion. She's always open to new things... She's a fashion chameleon. It's ever-changing, and that's why we have the best of times together."
