Kristen Stewart 'eager to make style statement'
Kristen Stewart apparently wanted her "new and edgy" look to divert attention from her private life at the Twilight premiere.
The 22-year-old has been busy promoting the final instalment of the vampire saga Breaking Dawn - Part 2.
For her red carpet appearances in both Los Angeles and London the brunette beauty opted for daring Zuhair Murad numbers, which left very little to the imagination.
Her Los Angeles ensemble consisted of a golden gown, with sheer panels that showed a serious amount of skin.
The actress and her on-off boyfriend and co-star Robert Pattinson hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons recently, when it emerged Kristen had cheated on Robert with married director Rupert Sanders.
Now insiders are saying her image overhaul for the Los Angeles premiere was a calculated move by the star's stylist Tara Swennen to take attention away from Kristen's personal life.
"Tara and Kristen worked together and decided the vintage gown would be perfect to take the focus off her and Rob at their first red carpet appearance since the cheating scandal," a source told British magazine Look.
"Kristen wanted something new and edgy to attract attention for the right reasons, and it worked."
Two days later Kristen wowed again in London when she opted for a lacy black jumpsuit.
