Kristen Stewart's Sundance Braids: Would You Try Them?

Kristen Stewart made a fairly rare red carpet appearance at Utah’s Sundance Film Festival Friday to promote her film Camp X-Ray, and rarer still, she was wearing an actual hairstyle (instead of her trademark loose, messy waves) and a big smile. We’re so proud and excited, we just have to discuss.

Stewart’s hairdo is in the same vein as the ones we’ve seen on Jennifer Aniston and Scarlett Johansson — it’s not quite cornrows, but it’s not just a soft tiny braid tucked in there either. It’s a sort of punky, aggro take on a super-feminine trend, which goes perfectly with Stewart’s whole vibe.

It’s a little bold, but we really like it — especially because her hair is super lush and shiny, the braids are clean and perfectly executed, and the shimmery, kohl-lined eyes give off the same pretty punk princess vibe. We’d probably wear earrings, but that may be a little too girlie for Stewart at this point.

You’ve heard our opinion, now tell us yours: Do you like this do on Stewart? Are you not into it at all? Tell us below!

I think she’s a naturally beautiful girl. She’s got such an interesting face…I could stare for hours. The braids are okay– a little too punky for my taste.

not cute

This is not a good look for a red carpet appearance. If she was just running to the local grocery store to pick up a gallon of milk this would be fine.

They’re OK, she looks a little sloppy in this pic. Needs gloss and earrings.

I think she looks cute, I have read so many negative comments about her outfit and hair and I don’t think it’s fair. So, she’s not a Starlet who wears a dress or gown By a designer and has her hair and make-up done. I think she is a refreshing change. The only movie I have seen her in was Panic Room with Jodie Foster. Not interested in the Twilight movies . But, the relentless picking on her appearance isn’t fair. I read her new movie gets good reviews. Isn’t that what counts?

She will never look like the typical HW glamour girl. She always looks awkward and out of place on the red carpet.

Kristen does not have pierced ears, so she’s never worn earrings… ever. I love this look!

No. It doesn’t look good. CornRows does not look good on people with fine straight hair.
