The costume designer gushed about working with the star and said she was so committed to the role!

Kristen Stewart said bye bye to Bella and the Twilight franchise and dived into a very mature role, playing Marylou in the screen adaption of Jack Kerouac’s On The Road. While the star is scantily clad in a slew of sexy scenes, costume designer Danny Glicker did a fantastic job dressing her, (and the rest of the cast), in clothing that reflected the post-war era in America at that time — and he said K-Stew was fantastic to work with!

“It was a dream,” Danny told People magazine when asked about the female leads in the flick, (which also stars Amy Adams and Kirsten Dunst) . “They were amazing. I had so much fun with all of them.”

The designer quickly became fond of KStew when he realized how dedicated she was. “Kristen and I worked super closely together — she was so committed to the role,” he said. “And to see her intelligence and awareness of how clothing can inform every aspect of her understanding of a character … that was pure pleasure.”

While Kristen was easily recognizable, Amy was totally transformed in the film — and Danny said he’s “such a huge fan. I got to make her look quite awful, actually — she’s playing a woman who’s incredibly strung-out on drugs — but thankfully she’s a brilliant actress. We had a ball.”

All three women had very distinct looks — and that’s what made the project so fun. In contrast to KStew and Amy, Kirsten’s character “had an elegance about her,” he said. “It was fun to show that elegance through her clothing, and that then impacted everything, like her posture, and how she appeared against the other characters in the larger picture.”

If you can’t wait to see the costumes, be sure to check out On The Road, (which is currently out in theaters).
