Kristen Stewart has come a long way since her red-carpet appearances for Twilight back in '08. That was then, and now, the 22-year-old actress has since been causing quite a sartorial stir with all of her recent skin-baring ensembles at her recent Breaking Dawn Part 2 appearances. Stewart's stylist Tara Swennen, who has been working with the actress since '07, had something to do with all of that sexiness. "It took a lot of balls for her to wear that dress, so I'm super-proud of her," said Swennen, referring to the sheer lace Zuhair Murad gown Stewart wore to the premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 2 in LA. The stylist also recently dished on why Kristen won't wear jewelry, her affinity for wearing Chucks on the red carpet, and her evolving style. Read below for the highlights, then head over to The Cut for the complete interview.
On Kristen's Breaking Dawn Part 2 red-carpet choices: Twilight is coming to a close, so we wanted to do stronger looks. Just recently, she’s embraced doing the long-gown thing, so it was definitely an opportunity for me to stick as many as I could on her. We just wanted to make a grand escape, I guess, rather than a grand entrance . . . we like making sure that we push boundaries on every carpet.
On Kristen wearing Converse on the red carpet: She’ll always change into her Converse by halfway through a carpet, which is to be expected at this point, but she puts on the heels for me for the photos.
On Kristen's jewelry and the necklace she always wears: She doesn’t have her ears pierced, still, so it’s a running joke that when she’s 25, I’ll finally get her in jewelry . . . her jewelry is jewelry that tends to stay on her only because it has sentimental value to her, whether it’s from friends or family . . . It’s her second skin, essentially, at this point.
On Kristen's evolving red-carpet style: She’s grown into being more comfortable on the red carpet; she’s definitely embracing elegance and gracefulness. Obviously I’ve been able to push more on her, but I think her confidence level is really the thing that’s changed the most over the years.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson continued their Breaking Dawn Part 2 press tour this morning in Spain. They linked up at Madrid's Villa Magna Hotel for a photocall along with Taylor Lautner. Last night, the trio was in the UK for a premiere there. Kristen wore a sexy lace Zuhair Murad jumpsuit to their London event, and changed into jeans and a bomber jacket for their Breaking Dawn afterparty. Today, though, Kristen was a bit more covered up in a black and white Julien Macdonald dress. The next few days will bring Kristen, Robert, and Taylor around Europe in the run-up to the overseas debut of their final Twilight film. Fans in the US, though, will be able to see their finished product starting at midnight tonight.

Kristen Stewart posed with leading men Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner at the UK premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 2 this afternoon. She wore a sexy lace Zuhair Murad jumpsuit that showed plenty of skin after donning an equally racy dress by the same designer for the LA premiere on Monday. Kristen chose a sheer, nude gown for the carpet, but changed into her usual t-shirt and jeans for the afterparty.

Kristen Stewart hit the red carpet in front of hundreds of screaming fans in LA last night. She was all smiles in a sexy, see-through gold Zuhair Murad gown for the big Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere. Kristen and Robert Pattinson posed together on their way into the screening and also stopped to chat with fans and sign autographs. It's Kristen and her Twilight costars' last movie debut for the franchise after kicking off press for the first film four years ago. She's been on the go in recent weeks promoting the final film, with stops in NYC and Tokyo. Kristen juggled that with work for her other project, On the Road, which hits theaters next month. First though, Breaking Dawn Part 2, will be on the big screen this Friday, and fans can expect a surprise, since Taylor Lautner confirmed that there is a twist that differentiates the movie from the book.
Fans of Twilight will finally get to see the whole saga comes to an end with this week's release of Breaking Dawn Part 2. But before you catch Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and the rest of the film's stars acting out the highly anticipated scenes, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at what the red-hot actors were doing before they were cast in the series. Some were unknown, others were child stars, so let's take a look back at their careers.
Kristen Stewart sat down on the Today show to promote Breaking Dawn Part 2 this morning. She traveled to NYC for the interview by private plane yesterday with boyfriend Robert Pattinson. He became a topic of conversation during her early appearance, with Kristen being asked directly if she and Rob are back together. See how Kristen responded in this clip.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are all over the press circuit this week, which can signify only one thing: Breaking Dawn Part 2 is near. The conclusion to the series hits theaters on Nov. 16, and Robert Pattinson stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night for a quick chat about make-out scenes on set and his favorite part about shooting the saga. Hint: it's probably not the answer you're expecting. Check out the video to hear his answer!
