Kristen Stewart in chrome yellow Dior in Madrid: great look or too bright?

As many of you have noticed, I don’t really care for dresses or gowns in yellow or orange. Mostly orange – I rarely think orange is a flattering color on anyone. Sometimes yellow can work, though. Is it working here, on Kristen Stewart at the Madrid premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 2? I can’t decide. The minidress is Christian Dior… I wonder if Dior makes it any other colors? I could see it in black or blue on Salma Hayek or Marion Cotillard. I think the cut of the dress actually suits Kristen rather well, surprisingly enough. And maybe the yellow is just “chrome” or “electric” enough to work. Before I get to anything else, I just have to show you this wonderful photo that actually made me LOL:

Right? Perfect photo is perfect.

Anyway, did you know Kristen Stewart has an oral fixation? True story. Doesn’t it all make sense now?! She pretty much admitted that during a recent appearance on Conan O’Brien’s show where they discussed how she quit smoking:

Kristen Stewart called herself out on Conan Wednesday night. The 22-year-old actress recently quit smoking, but told host Conan O’Brien that it really wasn’t that difficult for her — because she wasn’t really a smoker to begin with.

“I was a bit of a faker, a circumstantial smoker,” she argued. “I just feel like I wasn’t addicted to nicotine,” Stewart explained. Struggling to find the right words, she eventually gave up and added, “I just wanted something in my mouth.”

Red-faced after her R-rated pun, she asked O’Brien, “Why did I do that?” O’Brien joked, “I’m glad for the Internet that you did do that.”

The actress also chatted with O’Brien about the new style of filming for the vampire sex scenes in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 where they shot just a close-up of her face. “It’s nice to see your own reflection while your making ‘shmexy’ faces,” she said sarcastically. “It’s absolutely absurd, actually.”

“It’s got me now thinking that I want to shoot myself, just my face,” O’Brien joked.

“I want to shoot myself,” Stewart quipped.

The interview was previously recorded, as Stewart is overseas attending the film’s premieres. The actress walked the red carpet in a sheer, black lace Zuhair Murad bodysuit on Wednesday at the London premiere.

On the London red carpet, Stewart told Us Weekly that the fan support throughout the films has meant a lot to her. “That’s honestly been, I mean, to sustain energy on one project in five years is pretty remarkable, and we wouldn’t have been able to do that if we were the only fans of it,” she said. “But to look over your shoulder and see a million people doing that with you is insane and amazing and contagious. Once in a lifetime.”

And she was thrilled to finally play a vampire in the final film — except for those vampire contacts.

“Those red contacts are awul — like, tunnel vision, wallpaper eyes,” she told reporters. “I think I’ve been sitting around for years watching everyone else do it. I’ve played [Bella] every step of the way as a human, so that final one made so much sense to me, I was raring to go.”

So Kristen and Rob quit smoking at the same time? It was claimed that Rob has quit before he found out about The Mini-Coopering, but then he took it up again during the bad period, and then he quit again. I guess that was part of their “getting back together” clause – no smoking! Of course, I don’t really buy it. I think they’ll be back to ciggies soon enough. It’s a hard habit to break, especially when you constantly need to be sucking on something. Cough. I wonder what Rupert is up to? Cough.

AAAHHH!! She’s smiling!! *crosses self*

    LMAO @ “crosses self”!!! Nice, Kaiser.

    I think she looks beautiful. I don’t know her at all (obv), and I don’t “blame” only her for the affair…but sometimes when I see pictures of her, I think she looks beautiful on the outside but is probably pretty ugly on the inside. I don’t know what it is about her that makes me feel that way, but these pictures are a perfect example.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I think she’s very pretty also.

      I don’t know about “ugly on the inside” but she REALLY needs to learn how to polish up her public image. Beyond the mini-coopering incident, she just projects a bad attitude that is so off-putting to so many. The thing is-I sort of empathize with her because I think she’s not a “people person”. I’m not either, but I am incredibly good at faking it. She needs to learn this if she wants to have a successful, lasting career in Hollywood.

    • Liv says:

      This is definitely her best look since the tour started!

      I think she’s a spoiled brat. She should learn how to behave quickly because her time of being protected is over. No more charades.

      • T.C. says:

        Agree. Best look yet. A tad too short but great cut and the color works well for her skin. I don’t know if she’s ugly inside just an off putting personality.

        Sparkles looks like a douche in all his pictures. Taylor is just meh.

      • Apples says:

        That color does NOT go well with her skin tone. Through not fault of her own, it is too bright and too strong a color for her to pull off. I do, however, fault her stylist- they should know these things.

        Her hair looks cute here in a braid, but, her ears stick out in other pictures I have seen.
        Can’t decide on makeup making her look pretty or too frosty.

  2. sullivan says:

    She looks very pretty in that dress. Not many girls could make the color work.

  3. LittleDeadGirl says:

    Cut is flattering and cute but the color is terrible. That’s subjective though because I’m not a fan of super bright color and yellow is by far the one I hate the most. My eyes hurt just looking at it. Still her interview with Conan wasn’t … terrible … I can’t believe it. He managed to overcome her awkwardness …

  4. Apple says:

    Wow she looks gorgeous in yellow!

  5. prim&proper says:

    I wish she would wear green more, to pick up the green of her eyes. I think this yellow is a little too bright, but the style is OK, perhaps a slightly lower and wider neckline, or remove those capsleeves. The shoes are great.

  6. emmie_a says:

    It’s a little bright but the overall styling with her hair and makeup makes it work for her.

  7. Saskia says:

    The fit of this dress is TERRIBLE. It’s way too big at the shoulders & arms, but it’s at least one size too small at the waist. I also don’t care for the halfhearted mullet going on with the hemline. In general this whole thing just looks like it was cut by a designer who was either blindfolded or drunk.

  8. marie says:

    I think she looks good, to me it’s her best look. I’m even a fan of her hairstyle.

    as for the Conan awkwardness, I don’t even know.. girl needs to invest in a coach, she’s been in the game too long to not be able to handle a 5-10 interview without putting her foot in her mouth..(well then there you go, she smokes cause it’s too hard to talk around a foot in the mouth)

  9. SmokeyBlues says:

    I actually totally get what she is saying. I’m orally fixated also, and the hardest part of quitting smoking for me was losing all that oh-so-comforting hand to mouth contact. I sucked on lollipops to help me.
    Also I love that dress. This is the first positive thing I have ever written about KStew, lol.

    • Ann says:

      That’s really common for smokers. Most everyone who quits needs to chew gum, use lollipops, etc. And why so many people end up gaining weight when they quit.

      Good for you for quitting! I have a lot of ex-smokers in my life, and it was brutal for all of them getting through that first year or so. Nasty habit.

    • geekychick says:

      That’s the reason why I just can’t quit! Ok, that, and the fact that I like knowing that I can take a cig and calm down in a matter of minutes. My nerves are epic sometimes.
      But yeah, I do get it. ;)

      • marie says:

        you have to want to quit/ be ready to, and you don’t sound like you’re there yet. I smoked for 17 yrs and honestly one day I got fed up and walked away-I haven’t looked back. I can sit around people who smoke and not feel the need to join in. Now I’m not a soapbox (cause I hate when former smokers lecture smokers, such assfaces)all I’m saying is you’ll be surprised at what you can do when you’re ready.

      • smartyparty says:

        I agree with Marie, you will know when it’s time. For me it was when I went through a bad illness. When I recovered I realized that I did not want to jeopardize my health anymore. But I was never a very heavy smoker so I am sure it was easier for me than for some others.

  10. Ann says:

    I think the dress is cute, and it works on her. Love the shoes too. It’s a cute look.

    They did both quit smoking awhile back. I remember it being discussed in interviews when they were in Cannes. Robert was chewing toothpicks in interviews. And Kristen talked about it in an interview too. No doubt there were relapses due to a bit of stress this summer. :) If they’ve managed to quit again, good for them.

  11. Sisi says:

    the look would be perfect if the dress was a little less tight at the waist.

    But this is certainly her best look yet duting the BD2 promotion

  12. Bored suburbanhousewife says:

    They all three look exhausted and miserable.

    • aquarius64 says:

      True, this looks like a hostage picture. And notice she’s dressing more demure (for her) in these photocalls. I think she and her team learned of the blowback she was getting for her outfits she wore at the Hollywood and London premieres. Not only was she roundly criticized, but the outfits served to remind people of the cheating scandal. (Too many references to Rupert in comments.) I think they decided from here on out to tone it down.

      • Bored suburbanhousewife says:

        Someone yesterday posted that they were told to tone down the bling for Madrid because of the severe economic troubles there.

        Some commenters noted the dress looked too tight. Maybe she was fitted for it during her breakup anorexia period.

        People seem bored now with the cheating/reunion story. I think we are now in the third installment of the Robsten Trilogy–The Final Break Up. Tick tock

      • JS says:

        @Boredsuburbanhousewife:
        “I think we are now in the third installment of the Robsten Trilogy–The Final Break Up”

        We’ll see. I think they’ve bricked themselves in. I don’t see how either of them can get out alive at this point. I can only hope that they really don’t want to, because it could be very awkward otherwise. But, if that is the case, I have no sympathy at all: the opportunity for a clean exit was there for each of them last summer and they didn’t take it. A PR simpleton could have seen this trap closing several months ago as soon as they started the Robsten reborn tack.

      • boredsuburbanhousewife says:

        @JS Interesting take. I still think long term it won’t last. She never seemed that into him and now the guilt and mistrust thing to deal with.

    • Ann says:

      Don’t think they were miserable. It’s all about which pictures you look at. There were lots of pictures of the same photo op on other sites yesterday where they were laughing and looked fine. You really can’t play photo assumption from one image out of a hundred or so from an event.

      I do bet they’re exhausted though. They’ve been travelling all over for promo, one day per location sometimes, and dealing with time zone changes too. It’s tough to do. After days of screaming fans and constant travel, I’d need to head to a remote island somewhere.

    • DreamyK says:

      Taylor looks particularly joyless.

      Too bright of a yellow. She has clearly decided to pick out talk worthy outfits so people will gab about her weird ass choices and not ask her about getting mini-coopered.

  13. Danielle says:

    I think this dress would look so much better with a black panty hose. I really dont like Kristens white veiny legs. They always look really awful in all her mini dresses. And I think she bites her nails, look how she hides her fingers in her fists.

  14. I.want.shoes says:

    Love the dress (color and cut) and the shoes but the dress is definitely a little too tight around the waist. In pic #4 you can clearly see that the seam at the waist is digging into her flesh.

  15. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    She’s looking cute. Forgive me for saying that. That dress reminded me of my childhood. My mother bought a dress same as this one. I hated the color and called it ‘Omlette’ dress. Lol
    Her braid! Hehe that was my hair style in high school. ^_^

  16. Mamao says:

    Kristen’s Dress and make up here looks way better than the previous ones!

  17. Get a clue says:

    I actually think her entire look is very good here. Nice dress, I like the color on her, hair and makeup look good. Did I just say that?

  18. aquarius64 says:

    Uh, Taylor WAS at this photocall, wasn’t he? Poor guy, he’s being treated more and more like a step-child thanks to this scandal. HE would have to say he messed with Kristen behind Rob’s back to get some ink.

  19. judyjudy says:

    I think she looks great. That dress is really flattering.

  20. Zelda Fitzgerald says:

    You can already feel the slide into irrelevancy with this trio. Bye bye.

  21. Erinn says:

    Oh God… I’m like that already. I have never smoked either. I’ll be sitting at work and all of a sudden I’m chewing on something, or eating candy, or biting my nails. Such an annoying habit.

  22. JosieJ says:

    She looks good. Best look so far at these premieres.

    Did Rupert awaken her sexual side. I think their affair was months and you can tell when she started dressing and trying to portray herself as more sexual.

    • Ann says:

      Don’t think so. She’s worn little minidresses, and strapless things for a few years now. It’s not like she dressed like a nun on the RC. You could go back to premieres for the earlier Twilight movies and you’d find slinky things. She just gets more notice for them now. Plus, she bought into the dreadful trend of sheer & lace outfits like so many other actresses. Why so many of them want to dress like they’re wearing Marchesa crap is beyond me.

      I think for most girls, you start to dress differently in your 20′s than you did in your teens anyway.

  23. Jessica says:

    The shoes seem too tiny for that dress…anyone know what I mean??

  24. Christina says:

    I am not much of a fan of hers, but she looks cute. To me personally, the color is atrocious and the neckline looks like someone made it in home ec class…however, the bottom cut is good on her. She has great legs for a short dress and the shoes are adorable.I am not crazy about the hair, looks like she is hanging out cleaning the house.She has nice hair and maybe they could have done something better with it. The men look handsome, but that is not a surprise.

  25. Jackson says:

    I really do not like that color on her at all – probably not on anyone. However, the overall cut and style seems much more appropriate for her to be wearing at premieres of this film. It’s younger and a little flirty and just works so much better than those sheer, trashy, overdone outfits.

  26. Sloane Wyatt says:

    Judy Jetson, you look beautiful!!

    No,really, Kristen looks lovely and the color works on her. I’m glad to see she took my advice to stand up straight and look as if she’s glad to be there. This makes a nice change from sulking.

  27. Diana says:

    Such vast improvement from the last two desasters. I think the whole look is perfect and it suits her. Her hair in a braid it’s very flattering and the make up went back to awsome. Thank God she pulled it together.

  28. serena says:

    The dress is really lovely. The best dress of the BD2 promotions till now.
    If only it wasn’t for her always dumbfounded expression..sigh.

  29. Jenna says:

    I like the cut and the length and I LOVE the shoes (I want them), but the color is a bit too bright. I wish she would’ve broken it up with a nice black belt or something. Overall it’s a nice look. And yes, I still want to smack her hands and make her stand straight and not be her fidgety self for a second. Ahem.

  30. Tig says:

    At least she wasn’t quasi-naked. Isn’t this a shorter version of the Dior gown that Julianne Moore recently wore to an awards show? Bec both versions do really weird things across the chest- it looks like a compression garment. Agree on the shoes.

    I also agree that they are splitting soon, if not already.

  31. Velouria says:

    Eh, I don’t love it but she can pull it off.

  32. Andrew says:

    I think she looks so fresh right here…like she doesn’t seem like she is pulling around all of her emotional baggage. Her makeup is nice, and her dress is nice, and she’s freaking smiling. And it’s not even an awkward fake smile! I really don’t like her, but she actually doesn’t annoy me here.

  33. megsie says:

    This is more more in line with her age and style imo. Kristen doesn’t yet have what it takes in presence or maturity to carry an ultra glamourous Hollywood look. She’s too young and uncomfortable in her skin. And the vamp look was a little off putting considering recent events. This little dress works so well though. The length is just right for her legs, but the upper half hasn’t been fitted well. Yellow is surprisingly good for her. Not often a girl can pull that off. Good shoes. Makeup just right. Not fond of the braid though.

  34. Tania says:

    The girl has no sex appeal whatsoever. I don’t know what it is about her but she is very unsexy.

  35. midnightmoon says:

    Yes-it MIGHT look better if she pulled her shoulders back. I think she looks like an overgrown 5-year-old here. She swings too far either way lately. Too adult or too young. Age-appropriate seems to be one of several skills she lacks, the biggest being social adeptness. Starting to think she might be an Aspy, which would explain A LOT except her acting career thus far… just sayin’, not an expert or medical professional. I live with one, and it can be soooo excruciatingly awkward in public with him. So.

  36. Lexi says:

    I think its too bright, i am not a fan of the crazy bright colors like that

  37. Katija says:

    HA! Every twenty-year-old female smoker says that. Hell, I said that, and I’m still smoking. Guess what, babe? You’re an addict. You’re an addict once you buy your own pack.

  38. MonicaQ says:

    Wait are gray suits “in”? When I watched the ESPYs back in July that’s all I saw. Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, and Tim Tebow all had them.

  39. Karen says:

    I’m jealous of Kristen’s skin, it always look so clear….not fair.

  40. Amory says:

    It’s a great dress but the fit is not flawless and it should be. She also doesn’t really carry it well – a little poise and confidence would really make this dress zing. The idea is great, and it suits her age better than the other trash she’s been wearing.

  41. Loop says:

    Lol there’re pictures of her smoking in a balcony during the press days for breaking d in LA, And there’s an insta of her posing in a hotel room with a lighted cig on the day of on the road screening. Fake twit.

  42. Kosmos says:

    She’s definitely not a people person, and also standoffish, and I don’t like her so much after all. She needs to grow up, stop giving the finger at public events, and just get over herself. Although I like yellow, I find this dress so bright that it detracts from the person who is wearing it.

  43. Mew says:

    It’s wrong shade of yellow. Yellow by this time of the year is a nice idea, but the yellow should be better shade of yellow. This is neon yellow, the kind of “warning sign melted on me, but in case the lights go out, you can at least still see me very bright and clear” -yellow.
    Wrong yellow.

  44. ben says:

    She has the mentality of a 12 year old and dresses as such.

  45. Dani says:

    I would love it if for once she unclenched her fists. Try not to look so miserable, you DID sign up for this (acting, red carpets etc) willingly. Appreciate it.
