Toronto 2012: Kristen Stewart Makes First Red Carpet Appearance Since Cheating Scandal

The actress, who has been MIA since the scandal over her affair with a married director, dons a sheer Zuhair Murad dress for the premiere of her new film, "On the Road."

Twilight darling Kristen Stewart certainly didn’t try to blend into the background on the red carpet for her new film, On the Road, at the Toronto International Film Festival on Thursday night.

Rather than downplay her good looks, she strutted her stuff in a very sexy and sheer long-sleeved black lace dress by Zuhair Murad, with colorful hand-beaded floral embroidery. The dress is from the designer’s fall/winter 2012 couture collection.

Both the bodice and the skirt were shockingly sheer and lacy. Stewart also wore her hair up and pulled completely off her face. And she wore a hairpiece.

This marks the first first time we remember seeing her hair up and off her face. No hiding behind her hair anymore.

Guess she probably figures if she’s branded as a loose woman, she might as well embrace it. Especially considering all the fuss over her topless sex scenes in the new film based on the iconic Beat novel by Jack Kerouac.

We say, good for you, Kristen. Keep your head high, dress hot, and stay strong. Never let them see you stammer.
