Kristen Stewart in Balenciaga at the AFI screening of ‘OTR’: lovely or corpsey?

These are some photos from last night’s On the Road premiere in at the AFI Fest. I guess it was a “screening” more than a premiere, but whatever. On the Road doesn’t come out for wide release until December, and I guess the studio kind of wants to build the buzz for a possible Oscar nomination for Garrett Hedlund. But who can pay attention to Hedlund when Kristen Stewart is around? Ugh. I have to say… Kristen looked like ten kinds of hell at this screening. Almost always, I have to give Kristen credit for always rocking some great makeup – usually, her makeup artist knows what they’re doing, and Kristen can pull off some very strong makeup “looks”. But this was way, way too much. She looks ghoulish and corpsey. The lipstick is too dark, the eyes are much too heavy. As for the hair… eh. Kristen’s hair stylist is hit or miss, and I think this is a miss. Maybe her Glam Squad is pissed at her?

Kristen’s outfit is Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière. The pants are… not great. I don’t get why pleated pants are making such a comeback – they weren’t flattering the first time around, and this time around it’s not “retro,” it’s just fug. And that top looks like “Wonderbra by Balenciaga”.

I’m also including some photos of Hedlund, who was remarkably clean-shaven and that’s kind of killing any biscuit-tingle on my part. Also there: Amy Adams in a too-prom-y Dolce & Gabbana. CB likes Amy’s hair, though.

    Gah! Turn off the raccoon eyes!

  2. Sushi says:

    She looks good actually… very edgy and chick. This is one of those rare moments that she got it right.

  3. Giselle says:

    she DOES look like a corpse but I love the structured look of her top. and that is the first/last nice thing i will say about this ghastly girl.

  4. Mirella says:

    I love Amy Adams, but what is she wearing???

  5. Vivian says:

    I also seen other photos with better lighting and she looked great.

  6. MrsBPitt says:

    Are you sure she is not promoting Breaking Dawn….cause she looks kinda vampirey in these pics. Or maybe she is embracing her homewrecking side…cause she looks kinda slutty too…or maybe she is combining the styles and dressing to give the impression of a slutty, bitch-face vampire! Don’t like her (can you tell)…don’t get the hype!

  7. UNF Joan Jett! says:

    I don´t know. I don´t hate it. But it´s more of a catwalk look than one for a red carpet event. It´s very strong and too edgy with it´s focus on eyes, brows and lips. It looks great when Kristens’ brows are relaxed but still too much to be a “beauty look”.

    Love the top! The pants are okay on her but they should be banned for us non-leggy mortals who are not size 0.

  8. BeautifulDisaster says:

    That makeup is horrible.

  9. BeautifulDisaster says:

    Her makeup is horrible. Looks like Halloween makeup.

  10. Sushi says:

    Yeah she went too far on smokey eye shadow but her outfit and hair look great.

  11. another nina says:

    Hedlund looks like a cat that got fixed recently.

  12. SusieQ2 says:

    Well, at least she washed her hair.

    Garrett Hedlund looks like Maggie Gyllenhall in that picture.

    Amy Adams normally gets it perfect for the red carpet – big fail here. Her make-up is lovely and natural though.

  13. Celine says:

    Well at least we can all now agree that she did not get breast implants.

    (The top looks okay on her though – it’s one of those pieces that a flat chested girl can rock while bigger boobs would make it look just trashy.)

  14. says:

    Love the outfit! Crap makeup and hair though.

  15. Liv says:

    I actually like her outfit, she looks good! But I just can’t forget all her whining and quotes about her boyfriend licking her armpits! Ugh!!

  16. Boo says:

    Kristen looks like a bag of sleazy hell.

    She is the anti-Amy Adams.

  17. Snowangel says:

    Lipstick is way too much with the heavy eye shadow. I actually think they tried to match the eyeshadow color to the lipstick color. Who did this to her? Her skin is too pale to wear a white top like that, would have been ok in black.

  18. deb says:

    Another tangled hair mess, a too big bra top & baggy pants. Trampella’s transvestite look.

  19. McLane says:

    Ughh this smug homewrecker.
    It’s disgusting that he media is kissing her arse and not confronting her with her lies and hypocrisy about fucking a married man while acting all mighty and above it.

    • Kimbob says:

      @McLane, I do agree w/you that she’s looking way too smug in these pics. And many times, she does.

      She projects a smug & “I’m OVER this” kind of look…..and it fails, for sure.

      I think she’s way overrated…WAY overrated. And yes, she looks like all kinds of hell here. Nothing to be smug about IMHO.

    • honeybee says:

      + 1000

      No comeuppance for her wrongdoing at all. She was protected well by her team and Summit in the kind of questions she was posed during her promotions. AND she got Rob again!!
      No wonder she is smug.

      This will only make her that much more arrogant, narcissistic.

    • Kim says:

      What lies and hypocrisy? She admitted cheating and her BF forgave her.She is not the first or the last person to be unfaithful .Case closed

      • AJ says:

        Lie #1: “Momentary indiscretion”

        How is it “momentary” when you make the decisions to: leave your boyfriend sitting at home, put his clothes on, get in YOUR car, pick up your cheatmate in said car, then drive around for who knows how long to find your mack spot.

        Lie #2: “Loves and Respects Rob more than anything”

        You don’t cheat on people you “love and respect”.

        And these are just the lies from that BS statement. Not even the hypocrisy from her every day interviews.

        Having said all that, Rob’s a dumbass and is clearly too stupid to see that he may have saved her career for now, but there will come a day when he becomes a liability to her aspirations and will be kicked to the curb when it suits her. Idiot.

  20. HotPockets says:

    You never do smokey eyes with a bold lip because it is too much on anyone. I’ve learned that working in cosmetics. If you do a bold eye, you should always do a nude or neutral lip color. It also wouldn’t hurt if they put a little blush or highlighter on the girl, so she wouldn’t look so corpse-y.

    Maybe looking dead and vacant is her signature look?

  21. Gwyneth says:

    She is overexposed, overrated, and overestimated. She is not even pretty. Just go away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Pamspam says:

    I know this will sound incredibly mean, but I think she needs to go back to not smiling.

  23. MG says:

    I like the outfit. The makeup looks horrible close up but not too bad further away. I usually never have anything nice to say about her but she looks relaxed and happy in these photos, which is a nice change from her usual awkward and uncomfortable look.

  24. khaveman says:

    I like that she went for a modern, more sophisticated ensemble. What I don’t like is the fact she is wearing what looks like a giant sports bra. ANY other color than white would have worked with this top. And I agree with many others, that she should do smoky eye and tone down the lips. I don’t hate the hair. It’s edgy.

  25. geekychick says:

    I love the pants, I love the cut, although it’s always (for me) hard to find the ones that fit just right, but it’s worth the effort. :)
    I like the hair thingie-but not on this outfit. A bun on top of the head, maybe? IDK.
    The make up is just too much, she looks like a character from a zombie movie.
    btw, adams looks like a ballerina/doll from “Nutcracker(Scelkuncik)”.

  26. dread pirate cuervo says:

    Her make up is very 90′s heroin chic. I love. I don’t love her outfit.

  27. zack says:

    is that a nipple slip or just a shadow in 3rd and 4th pics ?

  28. Linda says:

    Holy shit her makeup is terrible! She usually never gets it worng when it comes to makeup but damn here…so ugly. But I’m kinda on the fence on this outfit, I love those pants but the crop top is a little too much for me.

  29. Sugar says:

    Photo #3 scared me so early in the morning but after putting my glasses on & having some coffe I revisited it. Now my opinion is somebody has been playing in mommy’s make-up drawer again.
    I think a high sleek ponytail on KS would have looked better with the simple lines of her outfit & Amy should have had about 10lbs of material taken off that dress-but hey I’m just a small town simpleton w/zero fashion sense when it comes to HW. off to refill java cup & skip over to Eva:)

    • RuddyZooKeeper says:

      Totally agree, this is what I looked like after raiding my mother’s makeup and playing “date night” at her vanity mirror. Her reaction was much the same: raised eyebrows and a stammered “uh, um … Wow … don’t you look …” Yup. Evidently, KS is as clueless as I was.

  30. Jeanie.amour says:

    I can’t figure out what that pink/red indentation type line around her tummy is. At first I thought maybe from her pants when she was sitting…but it doesnt seem to be in the right place for that….At least for me, that makes the whole belly baring statement (which i hate to begin with) even worse.

  31. Elceibeno says:

    Kristen looks 15 years older with that heavy make up on.

  32. Elceibeno says:

    Kristen looks 15 years older with that heavy make up on.

  33. bns says:

    She’s just not chic enough to pull this off. Kate Moss or Charlotte Gainsbourg would know what to do with it.

  34. Jenna says:

    The outfit isn’t bad. But the make-up? Oh. My. Eww. You can’t have bold eyes and bold lips; it’s always either one or the other. Now she looks like she was a few days late for Halloween. And her posture…lord, how I hate that little lean back with her hands in fists. Oy.

  35. Ramona says:

    No mention of Robert. Is this the sort of thing he would attend if they are “together”? Does it mean something that he is not there? Is this something that is done solo?

    • smiley says:

      mm,well he did there r pics out there!

    • Michele says:

      Rob was at the after party with her. There were lots of people who were also there tweeting last night about seeing Rob there with Kristen. He didn’t do the red carpet. He snuck into the after party without getting papped. I also saw a fan pic of him at the party posing with some older looking woman.

    • honeybee says:

      Yeah he was there at the after party. It would have been glaringly obvious if he had not attended it, you know? So close to BD2 release and all.

      Despite all these outings I still think they will go their separate ways sometime in 2013.

      • Michele says:

        It’s so “glaringly obvious” he was only there to fulfill his PR duties. Can’t wait to see all the pics of Rob and Kristen from the red carpet posing together for all the media outlets. I just remembered. Rob didn’t do the red carpet. And he snuck into the after party so I guess no Rob and Kristen photo op arriving at the party together. They really suck at promoting their fake PR relationship.

      • honeybee says:

        To Michele

        Yes they are smart enough to play it the way they always played prior to her cheating and their ‘reunion’

        They never walked eachother’s red carpet together. Why would he do so now?
        So he ‘sneaked’ thru the back door only to be seen/tweeted by so many anyways as to how ‘cute’ they were together. Blech.
        If he had not attended this and seen by others, there will be a lot of speculation as to why her BF didn’t make it her movie after-party. Of course he would make it.

        He claimed in an interview as to how he isn’t into Halloween. So why attend one now, particularly when it is infested by paps everywhere?
        Their obvious attempts are obvious.

      • Scarlett says:

        Not much of a ‘secret’ since it’s on every gossip blog.

      • Freda says:

        Even E!Online reported that they were separate most of the time there. Rob was talking to AFI producers, and Kristen – who the f–k cares what she was doing. He came over her toward the end of the party right before they left, obviously, to be eventually seen with her. Doesn’t look so sweet and epic.

  36. Bored suburbanhousewife says:

    Sports bra allows her to strategically flash her Magic Armpits of Doom.

    Amy has more talent in her left nostril than Trampella has in her whole body.

  37. some bitch says:

    The outfit is very 90s.

    The makeup is very terrible.

  38. Crazy says:

    Why does she appear pissed off 90% of the time? She makes more in one film than most people make in a lifetime, she does what she wants for a living, she somehow lured Rob back. You think she’d be elated and a tiny bit grateful.

  39. Crazy says:

  40. Jennifer12 says:

    What is with these people? They can afford the best and look like hell. Amy Adams looks like she’s going to a 1957 prom and whoever said Garrett looks like Maggie Gyllenhaal is spot on. But Kristen, good God. The pleats are unattractive but she’s so thin she can wear them. But what’s with the bra top? She needs some kind of form fitting, scoop neck top with that. And the makeup is way too heavy and her hair looks messy. Doesn’t work at all.

  41. mia girl says:

    Looks like her makeup/hair stylist were going for an 80s Nagel model look… but they took it too far.

  42. Amy says:

    Lips that thin shouldn’t wear lipstick that dark. And I thought we learned in Makeup 101 to pick a strong lip or a strong eye — never do both at the same time or you’ll look like a poor man’s Elvira.

  43. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    I don’t like the pants.

  44. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    They all look awful. KStew looks especially bad here.

  45. Lee says:

    I think Kristen would have looked better if she had focused on eyes OR lips. It looks too heavy with both. It’s a shame because usually her make up looks are pretty flawless.

    The outfit though. Yikes, it looks like something Gwen Stafani would have worn on a No Doubt tour.

  46. Dawning Red says:

    I didn’t know they were doing a remake of The Addams Family.

    Morticia, right? I think Stews too old to play Wednesday.

  47. Dahlia1947 says:

    Yeah I agree, it’s either do up the eyes or the lips! This is waay too much! I miss Garrett’s facial hair. He looks positively sexy with it!

  48. skuddles says:

    KS needs a different shade of lipstick…otherwise, I quite like her look.

  49. aquarius64 says:

    Hey Kristen,

    Cindy Lauper called. She wanted her ’90s look back.

    The eye makeup makes her look like a vampire hooker.

    Was this premiere on an open street? Let’s see the BD2 premiere which will be on an open street. How is Summit going to prevent someone from showing up wearing a “Kristen Stewart is a Trampire” t-shirt, whereupon an upset Twi-hard or Robsten fan sees it and a fight gets started? Seeing comments from this and other boards shows the cheating scandal has not completely gone away for her, or Rob, despite the controlled environments these two appear. Summit better have beefed up the security for the premieres.

  50. Elle says:

    Is it weird that Amy Adams and Kristen Stewart look like they are the same age when Amy has like 16 years on her?

    I think one of the reasons Amy struggles with fashion sometimes is because she looks so damn young. I don’t think the stylists know what to do with her. She has to find that happy medium between celebrating how young she looks and still finding the right look.

    I do like Amy’s hair up though. Emphasizes her long neck and great skin. I don’t love the dress.

    I…don’t hate the outfit on Kstew. But the makeup does not work for me. I also really can’t handle her smugness. I don’t know. I don’t hate Kstew as others do but I do find her hard to like sometimes.

  51. Melissa says:

    She looks awful. The makeup is too harsh. I see she’s actually smiling in some pictures. She is trying to rehab her public image no matter what anyone says.

  52. Scarlett says:

    She kind of looks like Rumer Willis.

  53. ThatWay says:

    I dunno….. I kinda love it. I think she looks great.

  54. anna says:

    I think she looks beautiful, maybe a lighter shade of lipstick, but other than that she looks great, she has the figure to pull it off.

    And can people please stop with the pr crap, he didnt have to go to her party, she is not even promoting BD, he snuck in the back, he let her have her night, after all she was there WORKING, he doesnt have to be all over her to prove they’re together.

    He took her back, call him names all you want, he made his choice, let him be!!!

  55. Mare says:

    Actually she looks great. One of the few outfits she looks comfortable in. Great styling.

  56. GoodCapon says:

    She smiles! Hallelujah!

    It seems like she and Amy are competing for the night’s ugliest outfit.

  57. Aria says:

    KS is a pretty girl and this Balenciaga goth look does nothing for her. At least she looks clean which in my book it’s a HUGE improvement.

  58. Biffco says:

    Looking good Kristen. I would rather see an actress attempt different looks than play it safe all the time.

    But of course no post here would be complete without the bitch contingent!

  59. Get a clue says:

    I think it’s funny that she is dressing in more revealing clothes since the cheating scandal.

  60. Anonymous says:

    The outfit kind of proves that she didn’t get a boob job though, look at the gap between the shirt and her chest in the third photo…totally flat!

  61. Gabby says:

    Kinda looks like kStew has 2 black eyes. Wish they hadn’t kept blending up towards her eyebrow bones and the red shadow makes it look harsh. Otherwise I do think it looks edgy, she actually has some cheekbone structure. As for Amy Adams, can’t believe she’s almost 40 the woman is gorgeous, even if that outfit isn’t!

  62. Jan says:

    Rob was supporting his woman at the after party of OTR. How nice that would be to have a man crazy about me like he apparently is with her or he would have never taken her back. Love is strange.

  63. Chelley says:

    She looks like a vampire…in a very bad way.

  64. lucy2 says:

    That makeup looks ridiculous.

    Her outfit reminds me of on Raising Hope when Mawmaw goes running out of the house in her bra.

  65. citygirlsf says:

    If K can’t wear high-waisted, pleated pants, then NOBODY can. For reals.

  66. A says:

    I love the outfit, actually…kind of looks like a mash up of an 80s music video with a more modern twist. She looks comfortable, unlike most of the time when she wears more elaborate dresses. She should stick to pant suits more often. Dislike the hair…with that type of a top, I think her hair should have been left down. The makeup is okay…Looks good in certain photos (and other photos on a different website) but overdone in the close up photos. I wonder if it was Patrick Dempsey’s wife? She is a makeup artist that often works with Amanda Seyfried, Jennifer Lawrence, and Blake Lively. She’s probably worked with KStew before…anyway, she tends to go overboard with the eyeshadow/eyeliner. Overall, I like the look. I appreciate when stars take risks, even when it doesn’t translate that well.

    Oh Garrett. Usually, he looks so hot and rugged. Here he just looks like an over groomed mess.

  67. dcypher1 says:

    Garrett is really hot meow!

  68. lbeees says:

    Dramatic eyes OR lips, not both. Hair is a MESS.

    Love the top, though. I could never pull that off… not in a crop top anyway! The outfit is pretty swanky. KStew is the tall skinny waify type that pleated pants *would* look good on, but for the rest of us mere mortals… alas.

    OVerall, 6/10, would not bang.

  69. Linda says:

    OMG now I know who she looks like here, Lisa Marie Presley! Exactly like her.

  70. Louise says:

    Hahaha! She always looks so skanky. I think Amy looks lovely. Kirsten, words fail. What a mess.

  71. Cookie says:

    Hideous. The rule of heavy eye makeup is to balance your face by wearing a nude lip. It’s just too much. I don’t mind her hair though. But that outfit has got to go.

  72. Bootsie says:

    I think that she looks great. She is obviously devoted to Balenciaga and is following thru with the full runway looks of makeup and styling. This is what fashion is. She is young enough and has a beautiful figure. She can carry these looks off as the designer intended them to be. Amy Adams looks fun and beautiful. Again her dress is beautiful and very fashion forward. and she is the perfect girl to carry off such a pretty look. The question is Kristen Stewart not a lesbian? Is this some big Hollywood secret?

  73. Steph says:

    I LOVE the outfit. I think it is really cute. The makeup though . . . did really look in a mirror and think “oh, this works?” HORRIBLE

  74. Amory says:

    To me, she will never be lovely regardless of what she is wearing because she looks like a sulky, spoiled teenager. That’s not a good look on anyone.

  75. Jane says:

    If her makeup was softer and her hair less severe, maybe the outfit would look ok. MAYBE. But she doesn’t seem chic enough to pull this off.

  76. Shafawn says:

    I don’t care what she does or how she dresses .. she is gorgeous. She can’t help it.
    I just hope she doesn’t try to become somebody she’s not to win approval and favor from a world who is too fickle and feckless to rely on.
    In Twilight she sold the public on the ideal that following your heart means not following the crowd and that being uniquely yourself has greater rewards. It doesn’t matter that the movie script gave her that story it was Kristen Stewart who sold it. Now because of Twilight Kristen Stewart is identified with not following the crowd and being vulnerably strong because of it.
    I hope she can glean the moral of that story into her own life.
