Following weather-related shipping delays, Kristin Juszczyk’s handcrafted creation was hand-delivered to the star just in time for the game’s kickoff
Taylor Lautner doesn’t care about Team Jacob, he is all about Team Lions!
The Twilight actress, 31, who is a Michigan native, cheered on the Detroit Lions when they beat the Los Angeles Rams by just a few points on Sunday afternoon. The best part is that he did it in style.
A custom creation made by Kristin Juszczyk kept the actor warm at the Ford Field game, a game in which she kept warm and cozy with her favorite football star, Simone Biles, Brittany Mahomes, and most recently Lautner’s former girlfriend Taylor Swift, who wore it during the Chiefs-Dolphins playoff game on Saturday.
She has recently gained a lot of attention for her work on many prominent NFL fans such as Simone Biles and Brittany Mahomes.
His custom outerwear was varsity-style jackets emblazoned with Aidan Hutchinson’s name, number, and name rather than puffer coats or vests worn by other celebrities.
Lautner’s custom Lions merch was made using details from two Hutchinson jerseys, Kristin disclosed on Instagram. (She is the wife of 49er fullback Kyle Juszczyk.)
A severe winter weather event nearly prevented the piece from making it to Lautner, the designer revealed in the same post.
As it turned out, FedEx was able to deliver the jacket just in time, hand-delivering it to the actor just before the start of the playoff game at Ford Field, where he eagerly unboxed it and put it on in time for the game to start.
“You are an actual mastermind and I am so here for it,” Lautner commented on the designer’s post, while his wife, Tay Lautner, wrote, “YOU ARE A ROCKSTAR.”
Kristin’s story also received lauds from Sharkboy and Lavagirl’s star, who said the designer “killed” the look.
As he posted a video of the moment he received the coat, he captioned it, “LFG LIONS!”. The jacket was made by my hero @kristinjuszczyk, delivered just in time for kickoff despite snowstorms and truck breakdowns.”
Lautner shared another post about the jacket and the home team’s win after the Lions defeated the Rams by a score of 24-23, writing, “Same place next week, same jacket, same team.”
In addition, Kristin joked that the fact that Swift and Lautner had worn her clothing while playing in the NFL playoffs may have been a factor in the team’s winning.
In her Instagram story, she joked, “My jackets are 2-0 in the postseason,” as she joked about her jackets. “I’m just saying.”
