In a sure sign that they are becoming more comfortable with letting the public in on their relationship, actors Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson stepped out together in Cannes on Wednesday. The vampire idol was lending support to his girlfriend and Twilight co-star at the premiere of her new film On The Road. But he was careful not to steal the limelight, stepping back to let his love pose for the cameras with her colleagues.
And the pair was later spotted kissing passionately at an after party. Robert was undoubtedly proud of Kristen, who looked stunning in a cream, floor-length Balenciaga gown. With its embroidered halter neck and thigh high split, the gown was a daring choice for the starlet, who usually favors more gothic looks. The 22-year-old teamed the striking, leg-baring dress with her trademark tousled tresses and skyscraper heels.
Robert was also supporting his best friend Tom Sturridge, who is Kristen's co-star in the film adaptation of Beat poet Jack Kerouac’s largely autobiographical novel. He had left fiancée Sienna Miller, who is seven months pregnant, to attend a party with her sister Savannah and stepmother Kelly Hoppen.
Kristen was joined by another glamorous co-star Kirsten Dunst, who showed off her gorgeous curves in a fuchsia Christian Dior column, teamed with a sparkly Louis Vuitton clutch. They walked Cannes’ famous walkway with other stars including model Milla Jovovich, who played up her feminine side in a lilac, floral embellished gown. And Michael Buble’s pretty Argentine wife Luisana Lopilato, who is the face of lingerie brand Ultimo, also turned up looking lovely in lemon.
On the Road is based on the years Kerouac spent traveling the United States in the Forties with several friends who would go on to find fame in their own right. Love at first bite? The truth behind Robert and Kristen's romance Sienna Miller's family so excited as she nears due date
