KStew had quite the year, both on and off the red carpet! See her most memorable, best dressed looks of 2012 and VOTE for which outfit you like best on Kristen!
Kristen Stewart was very busy in 2012! From promoting the major movies she starred in to dealing with the fallout of her scandalous affair and closing the final chapter on the Twilight saga, the star has certainly matured — and it totally showed on the red carpet! Kristen took more risks than ever before, really stepping out in one impressive high-fashion ensemble after another. Kristen always had an affinity for mini dresses, but this year she experimented with a slew of silhouettes and styles — and she looked so comfortable and confident on the red carpet!
Kristen kicked off the year with a whirlwind promotional tour for Snow White and the Huntsman, where we first started to notice her red carpet evolution. Gone were the edgy, (yet predictable), strapless minis — instead, the star opted for interesting choices like a high-waisted, beaded Balmain skirt and matching crop top and an intricate Marchesa dress with sheer detailing. The star, who used to seem uncomfortable on the red carpet, was totally cool and confident in one high-fashion ensemble after another.
The star also really showed her support for boyfriend Robert Pattinson on the red carpet, turning up at the Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of his film, Cosmopolis in a plunging red Reem Acra gown. It was easily one of the most sophisticated and chic looks we’ve ever seen on her, and she totally stole the show while publicly supporting her main man.
While KStew loves dressing down, in 2012 she was able to infuse her personal sense of style into her red carpet looks. One of the best decisions she made was definitely embracing the menswear trend. In shorts and rompers and trousers and crop tops, the star appeared more comfortable than ever before. I hope to see the star show off more of these looks in the upcoming year!
Kristen was certainly off to a stellar start before the news of her affair broke, and while the star took a brief break from walking the red carpet, she came back looking better than ever! Kristen stepped out at the Toronto International Film Festival for the On The Road premiere on Sept. 6, where she showed off one of her best dresses of the year. She may have been nervous, but she looked flawless! In a floral, embellished Zuhair Murad frock with a sheer neckline, black Jimmy Choo pumps and a pink lip, KStew clearly dressed to impress.
Her personal life may have been in shambles, but style-wise Kristen really never looked better. Kristen’s post-affair style was definitely more risky on the red carpet, and she looked so sexy in a slew of high-fashion ensembles while promoting Breaking Dawn: Part 2. Luckily Kristen and Rob kissed and made up, and he proved to be her best accessory on the red carpet! She showed off two more stunning Zuhair Murad outfits — a sheer strapless gown for the LA premiere and a sheer jumpsuit for the UK premiere.
Sure, the star took the red carpet by storm while promoting all of the films in the Twilight saga, but nothing could compare to the looks we saw her show off in 2012 — in fact, it was hard to pick just 20! Check out our favorite looks above & VOTE for which outfit you liked best below.
