Kristen Stewart’s red carpet role is always the reluctant glamour girl, with the starlet pairing her designer duds with an uncomfortable half smile that says “I’d rather be wearing Chucks.” But this position is pretty hard to defend when you take a look at the stunningly sexy J. Mendel gown the actress wore for last night’s premiere Breaking Dawn Part One–the penultimate film of The Twilight Saga. The shimmering blue sheer dress features a thigh high slit that Stewart worked to the max in towering Jimmy Choo platforms.
Stewart’s usual dressing up m.o. is to go for a short-short mini and it’s nice to see her embracing a more grown-up look as she navigates her way from teen idol status. And she seems to be enjoying herself, with one exception: those shoes. The actress complained to Access Hollywood that her feet “hurt so bad.” Maybe she’d rather be wearing those Converse after all.
