Kristen Stewart made her grand red carpet arrival tonight at Palais des Festivals for the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival premiere of “On The Road” wearing a custom-made Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière gown.

This is the first premiere at Cannes for the 22-year-old, but you can tell it’s an exciting and memorable one!

Kristen’s pale pink sleeveless satin gown, with a teal pattern motif and embroidered all over with blue and silver sequin paillettes, featured a plunging v-neck and a massive thigh slit at the side to show off her black and silver metallic strappy Balenciaga sandals. Her heels were an off-runway look from the Fall 2008 collection.

The design was finished off with a black leather belt.

I think this was a good choice for her. As I mentioned in my Cannes Wish List, I suspected Kristen would opt for a custom design from Ghesquière — but unlike her MET Gala look, I think she’ll receive much higher praise this time around.

Some may think she played it safe, which might be true, but I think Kristen was classy and beautiful — and yet, she still held on to the cool and edgy vibe we love so much about her style.

I mean… that slit is dangerous! I love how fearless she is.

She completed her look with a light color on her nails, a voluminous mane of luxurious layered waves, her special vintage Cartier necklace and the Cartier white gold “Juste Un Clou” nail bracelet she’s been spotted wearing the past couple of days.

What did you think of Kristen’s Balenciaga gown at Cannes tonight!?

    I don’t like it. I’m not a big fan of Balenciaga. Kristen always rocks the red carpet, but this is one of the worst dresses I’ve seen her in. Wish she had done something with her hair, but that’s irrelevant compared to this ‘kitchen curtain’ look.
