On Monday night, Twilight star Kristen Stewart wowed on the red carpet outside of the Met Ball wearing a metallic cinched waist Chanel dress with a feathered skirt and sequenced black tulle.
The 24-year old, whose locks are now dyed red, appeared alongside her BFF Riley Keough, grand-daughter of Elvis Presley.
There have been rumors that Keough has been in a romance with Stewart’s ex, Robert Pattinson. If the rumors are indeed true, it sure hasn’t hurt the girls’ friendship. The two were side by side at both the Met Ball and the after parties in New York City Monday night.
Keough, also with red hair, wore a sleek black one-piece pantsuit on the red carpet; however, both girls quickly changed into more comfortable clothes after the big event, sporting Stewart’s famous look: jeans, tennis shoes, and baggy sweatshirts.
In fact, oftentimes, Stewart even swaps out heels for her tennis shoes immediately after leaving the red carpet and going into an event.
“For some reason it pisses people off when I change after a red carpet. If I think about why people have these expectations of me it makes sense, but I genuinely think that if people thought about it for two seconds they’d be like, ‘Oh my God, why do I care that that girl just put some f—ing sneakers on?’” the actress told People. “Are you seriously mad that I put on some Vans after an hour of being in heels? I’m so sorry to have upset you, you crazy person.”
Stewart’s on-again off-again relationship with Twilight co-star Pattinson has been in and out of the media since the two appeared in the film together. In July 2012, Stewart publicly acknowledged their relationship after photos were published of the Snow White and the Huntsman star having an affair with director Rupert Sanders.
“I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment. I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected,” Stewart told People the day the photos were released. “This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”
Since then, Pattinson has been seen out and about with other females, including Imogen Ker, an L.A. hipster who is friends with Dakota Fanning, another close acquaintance of Stewart’s.
Later this month Stewart and Pattinson will come face-to-face again at the Cannes Film Festival with two films they are involved with in competition.
“Awkward is an understatement,” a source told Now. “Kristen hates confrontation, so seeing Rob will be strange for both of them. They have a lot of history together. Feelings don’t disappear overnight.”
It will be interesting to see what Stewart will wear to the Cannes Festival. Will she glam up once again in Chanel, the company of which she recently starred in their latest campaign, or will she choose to be more herself, donning her black and white high-tops? Either way, it’s sure to make news.
