For the World Premiere of Universal’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” held in London, Empire Leicester Square was transformed into a fairytale carpet that was separated into the Dark Forrest and the Enchanted Forrest to stay in theme with the film.

Kristen Stewart joined her costars Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth and Sam Claflin at the big event looking like a mystical creature herself.

The beautiful 22-year-old actress arrived to the premiere wearing a ornate black lace Marchesa gown that was embroidered with metallic beaded embellishments that were designed to look like skeleton bones!

Hairstylist Ken O’Rourke helped Kristen get ready for her close-up by taking inspiration from her dress! “I wanted to give her hair a modern gothic feeling,” he told The Fashion Court.

The morning of the premiere, Ken and Kristen came up with the idea to weave a chain throughout her twisted, undone ‘do.

Luckily, he had the perfect piece in his kit!

Including accessories in the hair has become a popular red carpet staple lately. Dakota Fanning, Jennifer Lawrence, and Kirsten Dunst are just some of the starlets adding sparkle to their tresses.



Want to recreate Kristen’s look for yourself? Ken shared the trick behind Kristen’s golden twist!

Step 1:
Spray damp hair with a thickening lotion or mousse. (Ken used Kevin Murphy Full. Again Thickening Lotion.) Rough dry with your hands as it has to have a rough unfinished look and texture. Section the hair from ear to ear and pull the back part into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic band.

Step 2: Massage the rest of the hair to give it a beautiful ethereal feel. Pull the rest of the hair back gently and attach it to the secured ponytail.

Step 3: Take a lightweight matte gold chain and attach it with a pin at the top of the ponytail. Wrap it around, twist the ponytail and secure the chain with a bobby pin.

You can find chains, like the one Ken used, at accessory or craft stores — or you can try the linked chains from Jennifer Behr like her “Double Delicate Chain Link Headwrap”. See more hair accessory styles at www.jenniferbehr.com.
