Actress Kristen Stewart has perfected the look of ripped jeans and a white T-shirt as well as the I-just-rolled-out-of-bed hairstyle, so when she’s all dolled up on the red carpet, people take notice. She’s busy promoting two new films, “On the Road,” which is being released in the U.S. later this year, and the last in the Twilight series, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2,” which hits theaters today, and giving Twi-hards a welcome look at a more refined Stewart.
Stewart stopped by “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” Monday in a colorful Peter Pilotto dress, while “Twilight” costar and sometimes-boyfriend Robert Pattinson visited “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” At a photo-call for “Twilight” in Tokyo, Stewart sported a brown and white checked Louis Vuitton playsuit and dressed up in a Bec & Bridge dress and Burberry heels at the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.

Stewart’s recent appearance in Balenciaga at a screening for “On the Road” at the AFI Fest was of particular significance. It was refreshing to see Stewart in menswear-reminiscent attire — the jumpsuit was sort of a sexy cutout tuxedo. But after news broke Monday that creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere was leaving Balenciaga, the outfit had more resonance: It marked one of the last times one of Ghesquiere’s designs hit the red carpet while he was still with the brand.
