Kristen Stewart Runs Away to SXSW

Kristen Stewart Runs Away to SXSW

Kristen Stewart shows off her smile at the premiere of The Runaways at the South By Southwest Film Festival on Thursday (March 18) in Austin, Texas.

The 19-year-old actress, who wore a strapless burgundy leather dress by Jasmine Di Milo and Bally “Stann” platform pumps, hit the red carpet with co-star Dakota Fanning (in Emilio Pucci) and director Floria Sigismondi.

Kristen recently told MTV that working on the film gave her a sneak peek at the life of a rock star.

“This is going to be the biggest opportunity to be a rock star,” she shared. “You are literally suited and put in the exact same position. You couldn’t pretend more unless you really are a rock star, which we both aren’t planning on doing.”

  • FroFro

    Wow she actually smiled in a photo! What a rare ocassion!

    Ugly dress though.

  • LeviKlein

    My gal Kristen knows how to dress. People should understand that good style is about bringing your own swag to the table and not wearing the Hollywood uniform . So Kristen is definitely killing it in leather. I mean, please.

  • del

    Kristen looks so much prettier when she smiles with her mouth open.

  • Hayley

    Kristen looks lovely in the burgundy leather.I’ve seen nicer pics than the ones here. All the same I agree she looks lovely with the big smile. She must be really happy. She has worn some amazing dresses to her premieres this week. Each time it was something amazing and interesting and a totally different look. She keeps improving. Even her posture is better. I think she was just very self conscious and now she is blossoming. I find the ridicule very disheartening at times and so undeserved. She will only get prettier as her hair grows out to her natural light brown color and gets longer. She was so dedicated to the role of Joan Jett. She has been a walking advertisement for the past year with the Jett-do. She has gotten good reviews from the major critics. The haters can’t stop a rising star.

  • Harry Potter

    Stewart’s dress = hot and appropriate for the film she is promoting.

  • Eli Lilly

    Stewart should giver her stylist a raise. She has looked amazing at all 3 premieres.

  • Lilo

    Kristen is growing into a stunning woman. The leather dress is so good to promote this film. She wears lots of leather in the film as Joan Jett.

  • Channy
