Last week, we officially declared the Season of Sleaze. But even though folks like Justin Bieber, Pete Davidson, and Bella Thorne are leading the charge right now, they aren't the only ones making sleazecore happen. In fact, as writer Helen Holmes pointed out over at Observer, Kristen Stewart has championed the look for years now. And she looks damn cool doing it. Here, in honor of the OG Queen of the Sleazelords, are some of her best scum-chic looks. 

1| Necklaces + tank tops is some pretty basic sleazecore arithmetic. 


2| So is a flannel and a beanie when it's clearly actually warm outside.

3| Long before guys everywhere were hiking up their crew socks, K. Stew was setting an example. (Keep in mind, this shot is from 2015.) 


4| Not the sleaziest of sleazy looks, but a damn sight sleazier than her walking companion in the floral sun dress. 


5| Bright red Adidas tracksuit? Check. Bold and sorta-clashing sneakers? Check. Sleazy? You're damn right it is.


6| Clearly, Shia LaBeouf was taking notes.   


7| This leans a little punk, but it still feels right in line with the overarching sleazecore aesthetic.  


8| Note the hair. And the dirty jeans.


9| A blazer isn't exactly sleazy, but wearing it with a big-ass necklace while simultaneously flashing a peace sign and sticking out your tongue takes the look to a whole other level. 


10| Hangover Sleaze.


11| As Pete Davidson himself will tell you, super-cropped bleach-blonde hair is pretty sleazy.


12| Exhibit B.


13| Throw a cropped tee and some ripped jeans at the situation, and it just gets better. 


14| Ditto that for acid wash and a not-quite-kept-up version of the haircut. 


15| Her hair kinda looks like leopard print at this point. Very sleazy. 


16| As is refusing to wear your whole jacket because it's hot, but, you know, you still need to wear that jacket.


17| Thrasher sweatpants are practically part of the sleazecore handbook. Well played, Kristen.
