2013Oscars_KristenStewart

Kristen Stewart was added to the 2013 Oscars roster as a presenter for tonight’s show hosted at Hollywood & Highland Center’s Dolby Theatre in California.

She showed up towards the end of the red carpet festivities rocking quite the accessory, crutches, due to an unexplained injury. Crutches aside, the edgy starlet channeled a significantly softer side in a Reem Acra Couture design.

The creamy creation was an angelic gown with its flurries of tulle that peeked out from the intricate embroidery and embellishment of the dress.

While this was elegant enough, the dress appeared ill-fitting and it translated as too mature for this tomboy actress. As well, the colour nearly matched Kristen’s alabaster complexion. Unfortunately, the overall effect was more aging and washed-out than winning.

A different makeup look could have helped change that effect. Her smouldering, desert-hued smokey eye was pretty, but a bolder lip would have been nice. And her tousled waves seemed a bit too casual for the Oscars.

I didn’t like the Fred Leighton diamond link necklace here, as it was an unnecessary afterthought for this particular gown.

But, all in all, Kristen has to commended for conquering the red carpet even with an injured limp. She apparently even wore Jimmy Choo heels, not even resorting to Converse sneakers on this occasion.
