Kristen Stewart in leather A.L.C. & terrible makeup in NYC: awful or not that bad?

Here are some new photos of Kristen Stewart entering a NYC screening for On the Road – we don’t have access to any photos from the actual carpet for the screening, but these are good enough. Kristen’s leather dress is by A.L.C. It’s cute. I think the jacket is Balenciaga – and I’m not a fan. I don’t mind that she’s doing a lot of leather these days, I just take issue with the “dated” looks that she chooses for some of her leather looks, but the dress is fine. I think the Barbara Bui heels are kind of cheap-looking, though. I’m sure they’re expensive, but I wonder if maybe a simple black closed-toe Jimmy Choo slingback might have worked better? Kristen didn’t attend the screening with Robert Pattinson, and I can’t find any reports that he was there, being low-key or whatever. He’s already seen the movie a few times, so maybe he just wasn’t interested this time.

Can we talk about Kristen’s makeup? What is going on with her lately? For years and years, I thought she had maybe the best makeup of any young actress in Hollywood. Like, her makeup artists knew what the hell they were doing, and Kristen just has the kind of “blank slate” face that can pull off really strong makeup looks. But then that corpse-y appearance at the AFI Fest happened last weekend, and now this. This was actually my first thought when I looked through these Kristen photos:

Right? Kristen totally looks like the Angry Unibrow Baby from The Simpsons. Kristen needs to stop getting high with her makeup people. Or she needs to stop getting high and trying to do her own version of a bold, smoky eye.

In other K-Stew news, Radar was sort of right – Kristen and Rob did adopt another dog! Radar said the adoption was coming, but Kristen confirmed the adoption while she was doing press this week in NYC. She got another rescue, and she named her Bernie. Like, short for Bernadette or Bernice?

When Kristen Stewart met her newest rescue dog, Bernie, at an animal shelter, the actress admits the pooch knew just how to steal her heart.

“She was very emotionally manipulative. She really milked it,” the Twilight starlet told Kelly Ripa on Wednesday’s episode of Live! With Kelly and Michael. “Then I got her home, and she was like, ‘I have arrived.’”

But while Bernie wasted no time making herself at home with an A-list star, with Stewart again comparing the pet to a “roommate,” her other rescue dog, Bear, didn’t fare as well with the adjustment.

“She was very comfortable instantly,” Stewart says of Bernie, “taking Bear’s stuff. I was like, ‘You need to slow your roll, girl. You need to watch it!’”

Asked by Ripa if she wanted to provide a playmate for Bear, the 22-year-old says it was a simpler motivation that led her to adopt again.

“I’m just sort of obsessed with rescuing the pooches,” Stewart said.

So Bear is living with Kristen – but I thought Bear was more Rob’s dog? Didn’t he do the rescuing? Oh well. More proof that they’re together, I guess.

    terrible make-up, great jacket

  2. Mari says:

    It looks like runway makeup, which cannot be pulled off in the real world. Horrid!

  3. Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

    I think the eyeshadow needs to be applied higher in the centre of the eye so as not to get such a horizontal look. And less in the inner corner. Makeup artists, help me out here, because I love black eyeshadow and want to learn to do it…

    I’m probably in the minority here, but I usually like her clothes. She has a tomboyish thing going for her, and it’s very much her own look in a sea of cutouts.

    I can’t say I’m a fan, but I usually click posts to see what she’s wearing.

  4. bammer says:

    She’s awful regardless of her hair, makeup or outfits.

  5. Grace says:

    She looks like a Geico cavegirl.

  6. Jenna says:

    Love the shoes; the dress is fine, but nothing special. And are you freaking kidding me with the eye-shadow? I can’t even…

  7. Riana says:

    The makeup is actually great up to a point. They kept her skin warm so she doesn’t look like a corpse and didn’t give her strong lips like last time.

    The problem is they brought that black shadow all way IN to to the inner corner of her eyes and even on part of her nose. It immediately draws your attention and makes her eyes look close-set.

    Oh well, every makeup artist has a bad day.

  8. ladybert62 says:

    Are those false eyelashes? She looks trashy.

  9. Erinn says:

    She looks… cleaner than usually… though she went overboard on the eyemakeup. It’s nothing fabulous, but I’d chalk it up to “not bad”

  10. marie says:

    my favorite part of her outfit is the shoes, not a fan of the dress. while her make up doesn’t look great here, there are photos from when she’s on the red carpet and while it’s jarring at first-her eyeshadow is really not bad, I kinda like it..

  11. T.C. says:

    The makeup is too dark but she looks good in the outfit. Even sexy. I like the shoes too, they don’t look cheap.

    On the topic of miss “leave them guessing” funny how she brings up her dog lives with Robert Pattinson’s Dog. Bringing everyone’s attention to the fact that she and Sparkles are living together again. Yes Kstew sure you don’t discuss your personal life in public. LMAO.

  12. Mirella says:

    Like the dress & the shoes, but the makeup? Does her makeup artist hate her?

  13. Bugsrunny says:

    I think she looks edgy, modern, and hip. She and Emma Watson both push the fashion and makeup envelope, I think. And while I don’t like every look they end up with, I’m all for their bold experimentation. For me, that beats a sparkly ballgown every time.

    • gogoGorilla says:

      I agree. I’m not a fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I think she looks best when she does rocker chic. It works for her. I don’t love the jacket, but it’s not bad and it works with the dress. The shoes also, although I think a kick-ass boot might have been a lot cooler and possibly more seasonal.

      The eye makeup is definitely overdone, but she generally looks good with a lot of stuff on her face.

    • Mari says:

      Dirty is not a fashion. That being said, her outfit here looks quite good, but her makeup is distracting from it.

    • UNF Joan Jett says:

      Yup, I love it when actresses don´t play safe but try modern, edgy styles. Not everything looks good but this one I quite like. Saw the make-up with a diffrent light situation at Lainey and it looked awesome. Also love the jacket and the dress. The shoes are okay, but mybe too chilly for the cold NYC weather?

  14. ORLY says:

    I like the length of the dress…
    That’s all I’ve got.

  15. Ann says:

    I like the whole look except for the eye makeup. It’s much too dark and overdone. Her eyes are pretty when her makeup is done right, but here they are completely obscured by the makep. Also, it looks like there are false eyelashes gone wrong. Like spiders sitting on her eyelids.

  16. Mar says:

    I love it. I guess I’m the minority

  17. KellyinSeattle says:

    I like the jacket; the whole outfit is okay. No comment on her makeup, but at least she’s not wearing bright , loud lipstick.

  18. NeNe says:

    Can someone please tell me what the fascination is with this girl? I personally do not get it, plus, I can’t stand her!!

    • Annie says:

      Me neither! I mean I have plenty of “guilty pleasure” celebs I really shouldn’t care about but always like to comment on, but k-stew is just so BORING, and imo the whole on-again-off again romance with Sparkles is so obviously fake from start to finish. I don’t know why people fall for it. I think she’s pretty and that’s it.

  19. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I kind of like it too but I also got the nickname “eyeshadow” in college for going WAY too heavy on the eye makeup ;) I think she’s a very pretty girl.

    BTW, did anyone see her on the Today Show (or whatever other dumb morning show it was)?
    Apologies if this was already covered here, but she was extra-grumpy in her response about whether she’s back together with Rob. Really, she was just rude. It was amusing to see Rob’s response when they asked him the same question.
    He just seems like such a genuinely good-natured guy. If they really are back together, then it’s definitely a case of opposites attract!

  20. megsie says:

    I hate to say it but this is a look Rupert would absolutely love. :D I notice Kristen’s look has changed recently into something darker, edgier, attempting a more fashion conscious image. Reminiscent of a certain someones style, and I’m trying very hard to assume it’s a coincidence. Strange.

  21. Rose says:

    Unless this new dog is a Bear replacement because RPatz will be taking Bear back to England when their contract expires? ;)

    • Michele says:

      Why would Rob take Bear back to England when he has lived permanently in LA for the past 5 years? He even bought a house last year in LA. Both Kristen and Rob have confirmed that they have 2 dogs now in recent interviews. Kristen mentioned on the Kelly and Michael Show that Bear lives with her. Since Bear lives with Kristen, it’s safe to assume that Rob lives with them as well.

      I have to laugh at all the desperate ones clinging to the notion that Rob and Kristen are in a fake PR relationship with an expiration date when the Twilight saga ends. You’d rather paint Rob as a fake and a liar than a legit boyfriend to Kristen.

      • Zelda Fitzgerald says:

        OMG do you people REALLY buy any of this?

        It was a fake relationsip, a fake affair, and a fake reconciliation.

        You people will eat up anything the media feeds you. Hollywood is a BUSINESS, people! The shit coming out of there is just to sell you their products.


    • Freya Magritt says:

      To Rose. I have the same thoughts about the dog replacement. In a recent interview RPattz said next year he’s gonna spend more time in England with his relatives and friends, and most of his movie projects are planned to be shot abroad (not in US). He must be planning to move Bear to England.
      The dogs’ photo on the Kelly and Michael show was one more element to the cheap pr game. It’s so obvious it was snapped and displayed in addition to the sweet adoption rumors about the new life of happy couple. It isn’t even subtle, it’s plein to see.

      • Michele says:

        Bear is Rob and Kristen’s dog. He lives with both of them. Rob and Kristen have both chatted about Bear and released personal pics of Bear, referring to him as their pet, all week long in their interviews.

        Rob has said many times that he now considers LA his home. He even said that his family and friends back in England visit him in LA often and now they even want to move to LA too.

      • another nina says:

        @ Michele

        Me, me, I’m a dog owner, I’m qualified for this heated discussion! Bernie is a replacement for Kristen’s fake love for Bear. See, the contract is coming to an end, so Kristen would have her own dog to love, rather than faking it with Bear…Are we on the same page?

        P.S. I’m responding to an earlier version of your post…I really enjoyed the passion of it…

      • Ann says:

        He’s not going to be able to spend much time in England. He’s got 5 movies slated to shoot next year, in various countries. One of them will shoot partially in England. One is in LA. Don’t expect him to pull out of LA any time soon.

      • Michele says:

        “Bernie is a replacement for Kristen’s fake love for Bear”

        wow. The lengths some of you go to when it comes to facing the reality of Rob and Kristen’s relationship. Now there’s a replacement dog for Kristen when Rob moves back to England with Bear when Twilight ends because Kristen never loved Bear for reals.

        Whatever it takes to get you through the night.

      • another nina says:

        Michelle – you and your enlightening wisdom — that’s what gets me through the night.
        Yup, I know nothing about the depth of Kristen’s love for Bear. But since she is faking everything else, it’s safe to assume that Bear is just another victim…

      • Deidra says:

        There’s something strange about the happily reunited couple – two homes, two dogs, two cars when they arrive/leave talk shows in one place. And on Q&A with Josh Horowitz the question about his favourite side of bed – he prefers the whole one. So beds are different as well.
        Different lives – and mutual promotion.
        P.S. Most of 2013 he’ll be shooting outside US all over the globe, it’s strange to adopt another dog in this situation. I think it’s for Kristen.

    • Zelda Fitzgerald says:

      By all means, whatever is said on Kelly and Michael is filled with truth and light and not designed to, you know, sell a movie.

      It is my no means a coincidence that every talk show appearance is filled with questions and pictures of ‘their’ dogs.

      These kind of celeb friendly chat shows pre-plan questions and topics in advance.

      They are selling a real life fairly tale to idiots Twihards who eat up every word about the happy ‘family’ including ‘babies’ i.e. dogs.

      My eyes can’t even roll back enough that people believe this farce.

      And no, I don’t care about this dumb couple but people this gullible and stupid are the reason shit like this sells.

  22. Bells says:

    She’s been sporting these quilted leather Balenciaga jackets ever since she signed on for Florabotanica, and from the first time I saw her in it, I’ve had the nagging feeling I’d seen the exact jacket before. Thanks to my annual Halloween tradition of watching Hocus Pocus, I have FINALLY figured it out. These jackets look just like the quilted leather jacket the shoe-stealing punk wears in the movie. Seriously, google up a pic of ‘Hocus Pocus Jay’ and see what I mean. Although, I’m not sure how fashion-forward this is supposed to make her, what with ripping off the scraggly, scrawny, peroxide-blond, wannabe thug from a cheesy ’93 Disney movie? So fucking hardcore, man.

  23. Mi says:

    I can’t wait when Kaiser start calling Kristen Sparkle.She plays sparkle vamp in BD2 after all.It’s time for equality.

  24. Melissa says:

    She’s channeling Frida Kahlo with thos eye makeup!

  25. Reece says:

    I like it in general.
    I liked the jacket at first but now I’m over it. I think the matching toes and hands are a bit much but she’s mentally stunted at 14 so I don’t expect more thought than that. Quite frankly I’m surprised she’s not in those damn chucks or vans so…*shrug*

  26. JosieJ says:

    She looks great minus the makeup. I love the whole look. Love the shoes.

    I don’t care for her as an actress or as a person BUT she is a gorgeous girl.

  27. MyLeNe says:

    Ok Ok ! I think we talk about every way she can be vilain ! The promotion going well but they are a “infidelity smog” but nothing majeur. I think everybody accept or deal with the story .. Just see the next

  28. eileen says:

    Lord that dress is awful. It bunches all around her midsection, whether planned or not, and looks cheap. Jacket and shoes are ok-but the make up is a BAD choice for her! Models do this on the runway for an edgier theme, but this just makes her look like a little girl getting caught putting on mommies make up.

  29. MyLeNe says:

    I’m agree to give a chance to this girl. She is young, on a world i think u need to be IN to understand every move .. If your BFF come to u and say she have a affair with a other man but she is mad in love with the boyfriend .. What you going to say ?

  30. serena says:

    Love the shoes and the dress!! Not so much that leather jacket.. and also hair and make-up were are a total mess.

  31. Get a clue says:

    Maybe I’m out of touch, but I have no idea what “slow your roll” means. Is this a phrase that is actually used? I never understand what this girl Is saying.

  32. april says:

    Kristen seems to be the masculine half of her relationship with Pattinson. He has the feminine qualities. So it’s not surprising she had the affair. They both seem to have very similar personalities.

  33. j.eyre says:

    I agree on the shoes. Not sure that a black closed-toe would be the way to go – maybe a pop of color for the shoe? Bold blue or red?

  34. Lexi says:

    I think the makeup is awful, bur her dress and jacket are okay

  35. skuddles says:

    I like this look. The eye make up is rather bold but it works well with the black leather. She looks more like a woman now and less like a child.

  36. natalina says:

    yikes the last picture is awful

  37. Annelise says:

    It seems like she’s trying to make a statement with all the extreme makeup and and fashion she’s been sporting lately. Like she no longer cares about being accessible, since she has to keep promoting Twilight and her fauxmance for a little longer. She may as well just push the envelope with fashion.

  38. says:

    Love the dress, shoes and jacket but the ensemble could have used a pop of color. And by pop of color, I do not mean excessive use of blush and bronzer on her cheekbones.

  39. oivey says:

    I actually like it.

    But it’s funny that she’s being “super private” and yet still some how manages to drop hints. Everyone knows, okay maybe not EVERYONE, that Rob’s dog is called Bear and here’s super private Kristen talking about how her new dog keeps stealing Bear’s toys.

    tldr; kudos to her for rescuing a dog.

  40. geekychick says:

    This is actually one of her better looks, IMO. I like the make-up, I wouldn’t wear it, but this is kind of red-carpet, no-I think it’s fitting for that kind of event.

  41. Ramona says:

    No-one has commented in hours so I’m probably writing for my own benefit but I noticed that there are no smiles in these photos. Did she forget the new instructions already? I am kinda glad though because she scares me when she smiles (like happy Alanis Morissette songs) It just is so obviously out of character and the totally opposite of Rob who seems to love to smile and laugh and realizes that part of his job when being interviewed is to entertain the audience (see Jimmy Fallon water fight). Can’t picture her giggling or having a real belly laugh – again something Rob seems to love to do….

  42. missgangrene says:

    I think this is the best she’s ever looked. And she looks like she’s bathed. +1

  43. kimcheee says:

    She looks like she got botox in her brow. That alone makes actresses look like they have a brain injury or are mentally handicapped….plus the awful unibrow dumb looking make up….Ugh. Train wreck. I think she is both ugly and incredibly stupid – so it suits her!

  44. Bear says:

    Always looks like she’s playing dress-up. Mistook a Sharpie for eyeliner.

  45. LittleDeadGirl says:

    It’s kinda of a cute look. I like her rocker style but admit I lean more to dressing like her so I’m biased in that regard. The makeup is too dark … I think probably in person it’d be fine but I can totally see the unibrow reference at certain angles. Not good.

  46. Marilu says:

    Sadly this is the best ive ever seen her look. Shes wearing heels, tights, makeup and apparently, not on crystal meth.
