Well, it seems like Kristen Stewart might be cozying up to someone new in the new year. Last year, she was rumored to be dating her personal assistant Alicia Cargile, and I was not even aware that the two had officially "broken up" or gone their separate ways since then. But that seems to be the case if some new photos say anything. According to Us Weekly and photos released of the pair, Kristen Stewart and a musician named SoKo have been spending some time together. While you likely know Stewart pretty well by this point for her film roles and high-profile relationship with Robert Pattinson, you might not be as familiar (or familiar at all) with the 30-year-old French musician.
SoKo (real name: Stéphanie Sokolinski) and Stewart were first spotted in early March 2016, while out to lunch in Los Angeles. The two women looked very cozy and friendly, shortly after other rumors emerged that Stewart was dating her Equals co-star, Nicholas Hoult. More recently, Stewart and Soko took their possible romance to Paris, where they were spotted holding hands.
If this is, in fact, the beginning of a new romance, here are some facts about Soko that K-Stew fans should know.
She Uses A Stage Name
SoKo was born in Bordeaux, France, and her birth name is Stéphanie Sokolinski.
She Is An Established Musician
SoKo released her first album, I Thought I Was An Alien, in 2012 and her follow-up, My Dreams Dictate My Reality, in 2015, collaborating with Ariel Pink.
She Is Also A Darling Of The Fashion World
This past Paris Fashion Week, she was seen front row at major designers' shows, and has been supporting Chanel for many seasons. She and Stewart have this in common, because the actor is one of Karl Lagerfield's favorites, and is the face of Chanel's current makeup campaign.
She Is Also An Actor
Along with being a singer-songwriter, SoKo has appeared in various films. She was the voice of Isabella in Her , and her talents earned her a Cesar Most Promising Actress Award nomination in 2009 for the film A l'origine.
She Has A Very Attractive Gene Pool
Her brother, Max Sokolinski, seems to be a model/musician and has an incredible head of flowing locks.
She Has An Eclectic Fashion Sense
SoKo definitely isn't afraid to wear what she feels like wearing, and she and Stewart make a very unique, fashion forward pair. She described her style to Vogue as, "hiding my insecurities behind weird grungy clothes."
Well, if Stewart and SoKo are dating, I think they make a pretty good match as far as I can see!
