Thursday, the stars came out in all their glitz and glam to attend a screening of the new movie “Personal Shopper.” But, the true star of the show at the Metrograph was Kristen Stewart’s hair.
The Twilight actress was the highlight of the night as the buzz about her new haircut picked up. She cut her mane down to inches long, sporting a new buzz cut like only she can.
Daily News asked the blond beauty if she was nervous when she saw the shears come out? She told reporters that she had no fear because she’d been wanting to chop it off for a while now.
“I felt like, what’s the worst that could happen? It doesn’t look amazing and then it grows back.”
Kristen actually did the whack job for an upcoming movie role. She will play a mechanical engineer on, of all things, an undersea oil rig. Both Stewart and Metrograph attendees gave her new do the thumbs up.
“I love it!” she exulted. “I love what it feels like, I can’t stop touching it.”
Celebs including Olivia Palermo, Zosia Mamet and Lexi Wood were on hand for the screening of the new thriller, sponsored by Ruffino, Air France and Uni-France. In it Stewart plays an American in Paris who works as the personal shopper for a tyrannical German supermodel, and who communicates with the spirit of her recently deceased brother.
What’s been Stewart’s own experience with personal stylists?
“I’ve worked with the same stylist since I was 13, 14 and she is my girl,” said Stewart, who wore a sparkly floor-length halter gown from Chanel at the event. “She knows me really well and I know her and we can have a really good time exploring that together.”
Stewart – who made waves when she announced that she was gay during a hosting stint on “Saturday Night Live” in February (“I’m, like, so gay, dude”) – has opened up when it comes to talking about her sexuality of late.
“The whole issue of sexuality is so gray,” she told the Guardian in an interview. “I’m just trying to acknowledge that fluidity, that grayness, which has always existed. But maybe only now are we allowed to start talking about it…. It’s cool that you don’t have to nail everything down anymore.”
