Seeing Kristen Stewart Glow On The On The Road Red Carpet Makes Me Realize How Much She Hated Twilight

kristen stewart on the road smilingThere’s nothing more cliche at this point in our pop culture history than pointing out that Kristen Stewart never smiles on the red carpet. For years we assumed that her moody demeanor simply reflected the inner turmoil she felt as her movies forced her to be in her spotlight. However last night she attended the New York City premiere of On the Road  and oddly enough, looked happy to be there.

Not like “pasted smile on my face because I know people are looking,” but actually happy to be there promoting her movie. In fact, I’d go as far as to say that she glowed last night from the inside out. Maybe, and I know this is a big maybe, she possibly even laughed aloud last night. Perhaps it was at a joke a co-star told or perhaps it was a funny thought she had in her own head as she glanced upon her smiling face in the ladies room mirror. Either way, I’m saying it could have actually happened.

Kristen Stewart Smiling On The Road Premiere

And it’s not a fluke! When she appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to discuss On the Road, she happily spoke about making the film. Sure she’s still Kristen Stewart and sure she’s still incredibly awkward to watch in interviews, but still, there was a light within in that I’ve never seen before. She used the word “passion” to describe how she felt about making this movie. 

So the only real conclusion I can draw from all this happiness is that she really hated promoting her work in the Twilight franchise. Because it turns out that a dour expression isn’t really her favorite red carpet accessory. Like so many other human beings, she likes smiling!

      Also, what is she wearing?! It looks like a bra and undies set with a bathing suit coverup. Yikes.

      • Jenni

        I’m going to be honest with you Liz. That was what I originally intended to write about this morning…but then I looked at all the photos, noticed her huge smile and changed course. But yes, what is she wearing???

      She looks great. I love her dress too.

      Hey Jenni: Good article. This dress is certainly not for everyone, but I thought Kristen looked beautiful, fearless and edgy. Her makeup was perfect and those hot coral CL pumps were to die for. As for the J Stewart interview, she was gracious and engaging, never stooping to the level he showed with Rob. I thought Jon seemed more nervous than Kristen.

        The dress was not a dress. Kristen has opted out of the game” Who wears this dress the best? X or Y.” She is not choosing to be the best dressed, the classiest, the most beautiful. She has left that garbage behind. So did Dunst too BTW. Kirsten’s “dress” was one that the papz would have loved to “steal” if she were home on her patio. But at the premiere she GIVES it to them, but they aren’t satisfied because they haven’t STOLEN it. So now the papz are exposed as kleptomaniacs in search of an image to steal. But Kristen gives them the most maliciously delicious, deliciously malicious images of her for free. They don’t want that. They want to steal them. She is dressing to show her contempt for the papz. Then at the after party she wears what she is comfortable in. But all that cover up is not what they want. Don’t look at what she is wearing as fashion, look at it as what she is saying. The dress is a bra and pants in front lightly covered with a transparent overlay, but the back there there are no tits and triangles to obsess over, it is opaque. The designer is designing a contemptuous dress for the kinds of men who are turned on by crass. And she is wearing it to say just that.

        I think you give people a lot of credit for their decisions.

        This “dress” is a repeat. The 6th time she has done this. See my “This Is Not A Dress” here: http://moviesandfilm.blogspot.com/2012/05/kristen-stewart-helena-bonham-carter.html

        Just a thought, when you were speaking “steal- if she were home on her patio”. Is it a coincidence that the papped pics taken of K&R, the pups, and friends on the patio showed K in a black bra top and white boyshorts without the sheer dress but VERY similar to the under garments built into the design of this dress??!! Uh-Huh…

        Nice catch. Who designed it?

      • lillicat

        ErdemRTW. The runway version was below the knee. That would need some work to be adapted to everyday life and in mass production.

        It’s not meant to be for real life, it is a simulacrum to be worn at a simulacrum event.

      • http://ninnelson.com/ gigi5

        I thought that too, when I saw the dress. She seems to have a wicked sense of humor.

      • lillicat

        I was waiting patiently to hear what you thought. We know she speaks through what she wears on the RC. I really enjoyed the reactions. Still one can not deny that Kristen is fearless inthe face of diversity. Even better, she looked healthy and happy- even glowing as Jenni put it. I do not believe this glowing happiness is because she hated Twilight. Everyone knows Kristen loved the Saga as much as SM.It doesn’t take too much inquiry to figure out why she is so happy, and that makes us happy too.

        jenni’s problem with all this is that she has no idea what true love looks like. Sshe has probably – probably – never seen it ongoing. Most people have not and maybe that is why they are so enthralled with RP/KS as they are seeing it for the first time. I think that’s what Bette Midler meant when she said she loved them. This is what is driving the nonstens and the PR ones and the Krisbians. When you take oppositions and look more closely you can often find out what they are concealing.

        Courage is going ahead when you are in the state of fear and trembling. She does. She got this competition thing at the first SWATH premiere and what did she wear at the 2nd SWATH premiere? Here: http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/2012/08/another-snow-white-premiere.html?zx=cb5e6b530737135b Kristen refuses to go head to head with LIberty who wears “white” to this
        premiere and opts out to say androgynous for herself and the character of Snow White in SWATH. Rupert gets it too. She has never looked so confident at a premiere, so in charge, feeling her strength for the first time, before or since.

        I agree, I dont think she hates Twilight at all, and most of the outfits she wore to BD2 were see thru and beautiful also. I think she was saying FU to Summit and the media. I think she was nervous because it wass the first American premiere which i think was obvious when she said she wanted to stay with Rob.
