Kristen Stewart’s sheer madness continues.
All eyes were on Stewart last night during the red-carpet arrivals for the New York On the Road premiere. And with good reason. She wore an skimpy, sheer Erdem creation that – from the front -- looked like a satin playsuit covered with an orange embroidered mesh panel.
She paired the look with neon orange stilettos by Christian Louboutin. But the kicker is that the mesh bit was actually shortened by about six inches just for the actress.
We are becoming slightly alarmed by the actress’s addiction to sheer fabrics. For one thing, she looks cold. But it goes deeper than that.
The Twilight Saga alum’s penchant for transparency started with a Marchesa illusion black lace gown at the Snow White and the Huntsman London photo op. This was way before the scandal over photos of her in PDA mode with her married older director Rupert Sanders. Post-scandal -- and her public statement of an apology to Robert Pattinson -- she made her first public appearance at the Toronto Film Festival On the Road screening carpet. Unrepentant, she wore, not a sackcloth and ashes, but a stunning Zuhair Murad sheer black frock with colorful floral embroidery.
No scarlet letter for Kristen. And she's continued to flaunt her physicality and almost seemed to be teasing her critics with her defiant “how do you like me now?” attitude.
Then there was the nude chiffon lingerie-inspired Zuhair gown at The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 L.A. premiere. The finale (we thought) was her Zuhair Murad sheer black lace jumpsuit at the London Dawn premiere.
The interesting thing is how well thought out her red-carpet outfits are. It's almost like she's reclaimed her sexuality and isn't afraid to show off and get some eyes on her. And she's now in control of when and where that will happen. Perhaps the scandal, in retrospect, has given her carpet confide and now adding nerdy horn rimmed glasses to downplay her beauty.
Many carpet watchers would say that Stewart has learned to play the Hollywood game. Make headlines for your red-carpet outfits, create more buzz for your movie and generate more ticket sales — which means more power in Hollywood. Then Stewart will have the ability to really call the shots in her film career, maybe even produce films she wants to make.
It's just that simple. And she's pretty smart to have figured it out.
Still, we gotta ask: What do you think of Kristen’s latest see-through look?
