From casual Converse to chic couture, Kristen Stewart's style has come a long way since her first public appearances.

As a child star she was used to premieres and photocalls, but when she signed on to star in the Twilight franchise, her career skyrocketed and the attention that came with it meant she had to learn very fast how to work the red carpet like an A-lister.

She did so with aplomb thanks to some reliable go-to designers (Balenciaga, Balmain), some unexpected choices (Oscar de la Renta, Marchesa) and a lot of leg. Gone are the days of sulky slouching and self-consciousness, Kristen now knows exactly how to charm the paps and impress the fans. She was even voted best-dressed by Glamour in 2012 for her bold choices, edgy designer finds and cool casual looks.
