Kristen Stewart in Elie Saab at the Berlin ‘BD 2′ premiere: glamorous or showgirl-y?

Here are some photos from what I believe is the absolute last premiere of all of the Twilight crap. Right? They were in Berlin on Friday, and these are pics from the evening premiere. Kristen wore this gold Elie Saab. It’s… ugh. I mean, it’s not completely awful. But I have a real question: is this really Kristen’s new style? I didn’t have a big problem with her old red carpet style (not he everyday style!) – it was more conservative, and she tended to err on the side of “slightly more mature than she should dress.” But with this promotional tour, it feels like Kristen has gone all showgirl-glam. Too much skin showing, too much glitter and sequins and spangles and shadowy biscuits. This Elie Saab feels more like a throwback to her older style, but it’s still rather showgirl-y. It’s weird.

Kristen wore Christian Louboutin heels/booties/whatever for the red carpet, but she switched those out quickly when it came to introduce the film to the Berlin audience. By that point, Kristen was wearing some beat-up oxfords and her Balenciaga leather jacket. Weird look, right? Something nice: her hair looks great pulled back and her makeup person doesn’t hate her anymore.

By the way, BD2 is on track to make a lot of money, but I can’t tell if the film is actually out-performing previous Twilight films. In its first 24 hours, the box office was $72.1 million, slightly shy of the $72.7 million made in the first 24 hours of New Moon. This is apparently the sixth biggest opening in America ever, so it’s still “record-breaking” but it’s not blowing every other record out of the water. Summit’s in-house prediction is that this film will make around $135 million, but earlier last week, I heard predictions of $160 million or above, so maybe Summit is just trying to mess with our expectations and claim victory in any case. I guess Kristen and Rob did their duties – they smiled for the cameras and got back together and everyone believes in true love, etc, etc. Breakup by New Year’s?

  1. Ugh, I can’t with her “hardcore” styling with the leather jacket and beat-up sneakers. Love the dress though, it’s incredibly pretty yet glamourous.

    • Joanna says:

      I don’t think that’s hardcore styling, I think that’s her wearing her sneakers when she’s not having a posed picture taken. that’s not a posed picture.

    • The Original Genevieve says:

      ITA 100%.

      Love the intricacy of the beaded, patterned dress. Also adore the Louboutin boots, I have a similar pair that I’ve worn the heels off of. But the pairing is really awful.

      I get “edgy” thing and all, but just…NO.

    • Me Too says:

      I’m sorry but I don’t blame her! No one actually walks in those shoes for any length of time. That’s why the soles are usually really thin on his shoes …he knows the women who can afford to buy them regularly do not wear them for long periods.

      Have you tried to walk/stand for long periods in 6 inch heels? After an hour, the balls of your feet either go numb or start to ache. Men, as usual, have it easy! They wear comfortable shoes no matter what.

      The sad thing is that because celebs wear these shoes we lemmings buy them and, hey!, I spent 600+ on these shoes so I’m getting my money’s worth rules the day. And I can tell you from personal experience, by the end of the day, I could barely walk and the soles of the shoes wore thru. When I took them back, the saleswoman told me they “weren’t made for walking!”

    • Dani says:

      Me Too – I wear 4-6 inch heels everyday from 830 to 630. I walk to and from the subway, around the city, around the office, and make it home with my feet still intact. Depends on the person and definitely the shoe. Loubs for all they’re worth, are crap (speaking from experience).

    • Katie says:

      That girl can flat out ruin an outfit. Every.single. Time.

  2. kaligula says:

    Hmmm…I can’t decide. She’s just not carrying herself with any star quality and the potential impact of the dress is not coming through.

  3. Summer says:

    She finally got it 100% right.

  4. SmokeyBlues says:

    Yeah the shoes are so juvenile, and the jacket. She continues to remind me of a bratty “too cool” high schooler. Also she looks boxy in this dress. Fail.

  5. Abby says:

    This is what bothers me about her changing all the time- it’s disrespectful to her job. She is working at these events, she signed up for it, suck it up and play the part for those hours when you’re “on”.

    I am not a large fan of dressing up a lot in formal business wear, but I signed up for a job where I am well paid to wear suits about half the time. At the end of the day I don’t get to say to my boss “i”m uncomfortable now, let me change out of this suit for the last few hours a day because it’s almost over anyway. Those pesky clients who pay our bills won’t care.” I buy the best suits I can afford that I am comfortable enough in and get on with my life because that’s what grown ups do. Time to grow up girl, the stitchk is getting old.

    I think her casual style is gross and sloppy too, but let’s not even go there….

    • Michele says:

      She has said numerous times that she changes into sneakers so she can reach more fans who have been waiting to meet her on the sidelines. When she’s finished doing all the press pics and interviews on the red carpet, she then changes into more comfortable shoes to sign and pose for pics with the fans. She said she can move faster and reach more fans if she’s wearing comfortable shoes. What’s so terrible about that?

      • keats says:

        Nothing, i suppose. Interesting how every other woman in Hollywood manages to keep her heels on though.

      • sullivan says:

        Good to know. I’m sure her fans appreciate the effort even if she did change into comfortable shoes. *The Horror!*

        Geez. The amount of hate for this young woman is asinine.

      • CTgirl says:

        If you can’t handle heels that high for an event then wear lower heels. And if you absolutely must change into more comfortable shoes then wear some that don’t look like there is moss and fungus growing in them and on them. This really isn’t rocket science.

      • GrandPoobah says:

        Michele: If that is the real reason that she changes into disgusting, moldy looking shoes then fine, good on her for being good to the fans of this beyond stupid franchise.

        However, she could just wear a pair of cute black flats instead of…those. Or her ridiculous ‘look how punk I am” chucks.

      • Elizabeth says:

        I am no KStew fan (she’s a wooden actress at best) but I can sympathize over the shoe issue. I was never comfortable in heels and after foot surgery, anything other than ugly “sensible shoes” are too painful to stand up in, let alone walk around in. But if I had tons of money, I would maybe try to get some custom-made to look dressier.

      • Michele says:

        The fans couldn’t care less what she wears on her feet when she’s signing things for them and posing for pics with them. Kristen wears her heels for the photo ops on the red carpet. The fans still get to see her in them. The only people bitching about the shoe switch are the people who WANT to find something to bitch about.

      • aquarius64 says:

        She gives people something to gripe about, starting with her Mini-Cooper incident. Her cheating is part of her Wikipedia bio – SHE WILL NEVER LIVE IT DOWN.

      • Michele says:

        The fans, Rob, his family, and long time friends seem to have forgiven Kristen. Rob’s mom was seen hanging out with Kristen’s dad at the LA premiere. Rob’s sister was seen hugging and talking to Kristen at the London premiere. And yes, there is a pic of Kristen and the sister together on the red carpet as well as pics of Rob’s mom and Kristen’s dad smiling and chatting at the after party. It’s only the people who have never liked Kristen for whatever reason who constantly bring up “mini cooper” and the cheating STILL…4 months later when the most important people in Kristen’s life have forgiven her and moved on. Why some people who have no real connection on a personal level with Kristen feel this need to constantly dwell on it is beyond me. Life goes on. Well, for some.

    • Joanna says:

      wow, that’s harsh. big deal she takes her heels off in between pictures.

  6. prim&proper says:

    The dress isn’t bad, but don’t like those shoes with it. RP’s jacket – too tight and too short! TL looks good.

  7. Eleonor says:

    her posture ruins everything, as always.

  8. Sara says:

    It’s like she is not “wearing the dress” “the dress is wearing her”. But I like her hair. I prefer the Spain dress and hair.

  9. B says:

    Ha, it looks like “Baking Dawn” in the second pic.

  10. B says:

    Ha, it looks like “Baking Dawn” in the second and last pics.

  11. CTgirl says:

    This is a train wreck of a look with so many unflattering details. The high cowl neck visually shortens her neck. The drape of the dress makes her look like she’s developing saddlebags. She looks thick through the middle without any waist detailing. The shoes and jacket are just ridiculous with this dress. And a final note, if you can’t walk in the heels wear lower heels. Better that then a pair of old tennis shoes that look like they stink to high heaven. Just all around bleh.

  12. Blue says:

    That dress is not faltering to her shape. Why doesn’t she ask for an outfit that she can be comfortable in for the whole event. Changing into beat up sneakers and her regular street clothes is not cute. I get that it’s her thing but it seems disrespectful and immature.

  13. Riana says:

    I love Taylor Lautner’s suit, he really looks amazing.

    I think it’s pretty clear, genuine or not, Kristin’s back to not giving two phucks.

    She’ll wear whatever crazy dress she wants, she’ll wear dirty sneakers if she wants, she doesn’t care. The signature on the check’s still valid.

  14. hillbillyinthecorner says:

    You can’t make a Silk Purse out of a Sow’s ear …….
    and sorry but this girl is definattely a Sow’s ear…..she is flat and has a little weasel face and has not posture what so ever….the dress would look good on probably anybody else but whomever picked this one was thinking of someone else…I havn’t seen her in anything flattering this whole opening tour….and you can’t blame it on the dresses….She is just not a attractive woman…..

  15. mia girl says:

    This dress is just all wrong and actually makes me nostalgic for that RHOBH blinged out pool cover up Stewart wore to the LA premiere.

    I think most of us can agree that the whole BD2 promo tour has been a big fail for Stewart’s styling.

    Meanwhile, Lautner and Pattinson had great looks throughout.

  16. Dree says:

    I definitely preferred her old style, just because it seemed more like her. The last thing I’d expect from Kristen Stewart is showgirl glamour, you know? This dress seems to be wearing her, as lame as that sounds.

  17. Ms Kay says:

    - K Screw will go hunt for another married director to scrub her Mini Cooper.

    - Pattidiot will go off to count the insane amount money he made from the PR game, and send a “Thank you Twidiots!” note to his fans.

    - Taylor Lautner will finally make his coming out saying he likes other big strong Werewolves.

    - Kellan Lutz will go on help people in groceries and hunt down that imaginary Kellan Lutz Oscar.

    - Peter Facinelli thinks he’s already a superstar so he’ll go over his head and ask for big bucks for any crap script coming to him, and when his foolishness of a career sinks down the toilets he’d be 50 and broke.

    Twatlight No. 5 – Inevitable

  18. Mirella says:

    A big no. That dress is awful on her & does nothing for her figure. I like the boots, just not with the dress. Her makeup looks great.

    I have to give Taylor credit, I think he’s looked fantastic. I’ve listened to his interviews & is so eloquent for someone so young. Kristen should take lessons from him.

  19. Joanna says:

    I get it, she f*cked a married man. Still, I don’t think she deserves all the hate she gets on here. Now we’re giving someone h*ll for wearing tennis shoes? gimme a break. get over it, folks. it wasn’t your old man. I love the looks of heels, but since i hardly ever wear them, they hurt my feet. i’d be kicking them off any chance i got.

    • jano1981 says:

      Ive never seen another star unable to wear their heels and get photographed in tennis shoes with their gown. Nothing to do with Rupert, I think she needs to sac up
      and wear her shoes or get some she can wear all night. Its her job to
      look put together not like a kid playing dress up.

    • Riana says:

      The reality is she doesn’t have to wear heels.

      I’m undecided as to whether this is a deal or not, but at the end of the day how people dress at their job is a result of them needing their job and wanting to be appropriate for it.

      Kristin is in a field where she can set her own rules. The studio cares more that she shows up than she wears heels. Look at Johnny Depp…when’s the last time he dressed appropriately for a red carpet? But no one’s gonna say boo because they want him there even if he’s wearing 3 dozen bracelets on one arm.

      • jano1981 says:

        Just pick flats or heels and stick with it. Maybe a ballet flat would have made her look.as awkward. Like I said a kid playing dress up. Looks like they tried to give her a pair with a platform and a wide heel. I could run in those!

      • Lady D says:

        My feet are dying from a neuropathic disease. I can use them for 3-4 hours a day and then the pain becomes too much, even with morphine. I haven’t worn a pair of heels in 10 years, and I cannot wear flats or flipflops. I’m pretty much doomed to wear running shoes/nursing shoes for as long as I have my feet. It makes dressing up hurtful and frustrating. I pretty much avoid it because of the shoe issue.

    • Marigold says:

      If you get it, then get over people being bothered by it more than you are. Same goes for the shoes. Some of us find the shoes gross and inappropriate for the event. You coming to her defense every time someone makes a comment about the damn shoes is silly. I know you’re trying your damnedest to hide it but man, your Twihard is showing.

  20. Metry says:

    Someone like Charlize Theron would have rocked that dress the way it was meant to be. What a waste.

  21. jano1981 says:

    No waist! No waist! Look how tight the belt or tie thing is at the waist and it barely makes a dent in her man waist.

    • hannah says:

      she has no control over her waist. it is how she is built. it isn’t as if she is overweight. i hate it, but i’m built like her, (with better legs imo) and there is nothing except surgery that would fix my waist.

      we talk about having more variety of healthy body types, yet frequently women built like kstew get ripped for not having curves, she isn’t sickly thin, this is how she is built. how is your comment different than “she is fat! she is fat” directed at a plus-sized woman?

  22. Mew says:

    I have no idea about the dress because I keep eyeing Pattisons too small dress pants.. (they annoy the hell out of me)

  23. vixo says:

    Well, this girl wants us to believe she’s so edgy and hardcore, yet she has a chance to subvert the traditional red carpet glam look but she totally conforms and gives us this ”I’m totally unconfortable and pissed off” look on her face. I think of Diane Keaton, Helena Bohan Carter even Zooey Deschanel to name a few. You don’t need to look excentric, weird just find your own style, something you feel confortable with and enjoy, for Christ’s sake !

  24. j.eyre says:

    The dress intrigues me; I think it was probably gorgeous in motion. I don’t necessarily like it but that warped, non-uniformed wave pattern in deeper bronze is interesting and probably got attention as you walked. Also, in the second to last photo, where she is stepping up, I LOVE what the dress is doing to her silhouette. The outline from her derrière down her leg in what looks like gold paint is very sexy.

  25. Bella says:

    She looks like (and is) cheap slut no matter what she is wearing. And her boyfriend has no pride and self esteem. He is beyond pathetic.

  26. Delilah says:

    This is like the never ending parade of fashion faux pas of Kristin Stewart. I give her face an 8 & body a 6. That’s a lot to work with, yet someone seems to be sleeping on the job. Get her to charm school.

  31. Lou says:

    I’ll probably get crap for this, but Kristen has gained weight recently, and it is especially noticeable in this dress. I am not calling her overweight or fat by any stretch, but the extra weight around her middle makes this dress pretty impossible to pull off. Also, if you’re getting paid an insane amount of millions of dollars for some crap movies, I don’t think it’s unreasonable for people to expect you to wear your heels for a few hours at the premiere.

  32. JudyK says:

    Hideous and dated (where is Cleopatra when you need her)…when is someone going to remember that “less is more”…and that does NOT mean less clothing.

  33. megsie says:

    Something could be said for the three previous premiere outfits. But this is indefensible. How did that dress manage to make a thin petitie 22 year old look frumpy and pudgy? Amazing.

  34. Perplexed says:

    Taylor wins this one hands down. I feel sorry for the guy, he’s always so polite, so keen.
    Rob’s hips look a mile wide in that suit – not a good combination of cut and colour for him. And his hair seemed to get shorter at each event.
    Kristen’s dress looks like it weighs a ton and probably does. It’s way too old and harsh for her. Reminds me of some very bad mother-of-the-bride dress at a nouveau riche wedding high on cost but low on taste. The fact that she hikes up the skirt and we see the inside construction doesn’t help.
    If she had a sense of humour and wanted to show that she ‘gets’ some of the criticism, she would have pulled a gold coloured pair of new sneakers to change into, but instead that pair looks like it washed up on a beach with a body still attached.

  35. asdfg says:

    I love Elie Saab but…. this dress is so unflattering on her. What was her stylist thinking? OMG! She looks lumpy and I don’t even…. :o

  36. HannahF says:

    Brides often wear heels to the church and something more practical to the reception. Typically they are white tennis shoes which are decorated. In other words, practical and cute.

    Kristen could wear cute flats.

  37. Victoria says:

    i love her makeup, especially the lip color. Anybody know a brand/color similar to this?

  38. smiley says:

    my grandpa has the same suit as roberts ,taylor looks dapper ,its too bad he is overshadowed by these talentless twosome

  39. A Fan says:

    I think it’s a pretty dress (however, I’m a sucker for gold).

    But can we talk about Rob’s hips? He’s got bigger hips than her. Too feminine for my taste…major turn-off.

  40. jani says:

    All that money and she still always dresses and acts like an idiot, a slob or some combination of the two.

  41. KellyinSeattle says:

    You know I love you, Kaiser, but please give us at least a couple days w/ Kristen Stewart or anything doing with Twilight. Am I the only one who can’t stand the show? And KS is so over-rated. So there.

  42. pastyousayyouneverknew says:

    Oh man, this dress, definitely glamorous but it’s not doing anything good for her, it’s borderline frumpy to be honest, it just kinda sits on her body.

    Rob’s pants are just depressed-sigh worthy, they give him some very fertile-looking hips, not good.

    Taylor looks the best, gonna miss seeing so much of that kid.

  43. Jackson says:

    Haha. After reading some of the above posts I wonder if I mistakenly dropped in on TwiHard Central. The dress is hideous, dated, overdone and way too mature for her. It looks like a cheap pageant dress.

  44. Hmmm says:

    How gauche. The mountain of hair gives her a conehead look, and emphasises her forehead and prominent chin. It’s clear she just suffers through wearing the runway stuff. She always looks like a stiff marketing mannequin.

  45. Melissa says:

    I totally get the shoe issue, I myself have never been able to rock heels unless they are more like a wedge. I would agree though that those shoes aren’t excatly professional, they look kind of grimey, like shoes you’d only use to mow your lawn. That’s my only real issue about the changeing of the shoes, why not get a cute pair of flats for that instead?

    That being said, her hair and make up look good. The dress isn’t something id wear but the gold colour looks nice on her. I don’t really see how she looks fat, shes got stick arms? Lol its no wonder young girls in Hollywood are so prone to eating disorders when people go off on how fat they look when they are twigs.

    I would also agree she gets a lot of unnecessary hate, yeah she fked up. She shouldnt of went after a married man, though I think what people fail to mention is thst it takes TWO to tango, and I’m sorry but a man can’t be seduced away from his wife unless HE WANTS to be. Even if she initiated it, he could of NOT went there. He deserves as much hate as her.

  46. Morgan says:

    Awful dress. I wonder if designers didn’t want to lend her clothes? Her stylist certainly failed in selections.

  47. Nina says:

    Not flattering… it makes her look thick thru the middle, ill-defined somehow. The petite, lithe quality of hers that can be so appealing is totally missing.

  48. ShakenNotStirred says:

    Hmm. Nice try. I bet the gown looks better on the model. For some reason, the dress makes Kristen look wide when she really isn’t.

  49. Christina says:

    That dress is too much for her small frame. It looks like she is drowning in it. It also looks fussy and heavy. Why do stylists hate her?? LOL

  50. jem says:

    why do you guys hate this girl so much? would she say or wear something you’ll ever like? It’s just over you ,you hate her no matter what she says or wear or what she does you guys just hate her .she’s beautifull the dress look great on her

  51. mollination says:

    Taylor’s shoes are fantastic.
