Wow! Kristen Stewart, 29, opted for an unusually feminine look on Friday night, as she stunned for the premiere of her newest film Seberg at the 76th Venice Film Festival.
Kristen showed off her slender physique in the edgy dress as she arrived on the red carpet, as the gown sparkled with an unusual metallic lace print.
The American actress’ gown boasted a high neck, long sleeves and a double ruffled skirt, with no other accessorises allowing the dress to take centre stage.
Kristen kept her platinum blonde tresses in a Pompadour style, and sported a dramatic smoky eye as she made her way along the red carpet.
She also appeared alongside her co-stars Anthony Mackie, Margaret Qualley, Zazie Beetz, and Jack O’Connell, as well as director Benedict Andrews.

Kirsten’s arrival on the red carpet came after she spoke about finally coming to terms with her fame, over a decade after rising to prominence in the Twilight series.
Speaking at the film’s photocall as reported by Variety, she said: ‘It kind of frightened me a lot, when I was younger, and a little more unsure.”
‘[But now] it’s great that I have this position where I can be totally open about communicating with people.’

Seberg sees Kristen take on the role of 1950s movie icon Jean Seberg.
The star, who spent much of her life in France, broke through as the lead in Otto Preminger’s Saint Joan, but it was her role in Jean-Luc Godard’s directorial debut Breathless (À bout de souffle) for which she is best remembered on screen.
During the late 1960s, Seberg provided financial support to various groups supporting civil rights, such as the NAACP, Native American school groups, and the Black panthers.
She thus became a target of the The FBI’s COINTELPRO (Counter Intelligence programme) under J. Edgar Hoover, the project set up for surveying, infiltrating, discrediting, and disrupting domestic political organisations.
It planted a false story that the child she was carrying was not fathered by her husband Romain Gary, but by a member of the Black Panthers.

Shortly afterwards Seberg went into early labour — caused by the stress of the malicious campaign, her husband later claimed — and lost the baby two days later.
She held a funeral in her hometown with an open casket that allowed reporters to see the infant’s white skin, to disprove the rumors.
Nine years later in 1979, aged 40, Seberg disappeared; her body was discovered nine days later in what was ruled a ‘probable suicide’.
A year later, Paris police filed charges against ‘persons unknown’ in connection with her death, insisting she must have had help taking her life.
Elegant: Margaret Qualley, 24, was also looking ethereal in a pale pink gown with thin straps and an unusual ruffled skirt
Glamorous: The US actress pulled her tresses into a relaxed up-do, and she sported light makeup to highlight the elegant look

Seberg’s second husband Romain Gary, blamed the FBI for her mental health, claiming she repeatedly attempted suicide on her daughter’s anniversary.
Memos later released by the FBI under a Freedom Of Information act showed the organisation had set out to ’cause her embarrassment and serve to cheapen her image with the public’.
The film also stars Vince Vaughn, Anthony Mackie, Jack O’Connell, Zazie Beetz and Colm Meaney.
As ever the red carpet saw a slew of glamorous models in attendance, including Hungarian beauty Barbara Palvin, 25, and Portugese beauty Sara Sampaio.

The 76th Venice Film Festival sees a highly anticipated lineup compete for the coveted Golden Lion award, with many big Hollywood pictures making their premiere at the annual showcase.
The jury will be led by Argentinian director Lucrecia Martel, and also features Canadian critic Piers Handling, Japanese actor Shinya Tsukamoto and British actress Stacy Martin, who landed her breakout role in 2013 as the younger version of sex addict Joe in the Lars Von Trier erotic drama Nyphomaniac.
Venice also faced backlash last year when not one of its Golden Lion contenders was helmed by a female director.
This year marks a slight improvement, with two female-directed films, Babyteeth and The Perfect Candidate.
