So far, this year’s San Diego Comic-Con has been full of buzz: James Cameron has been talking about “Avatar,” Peter Jackson revealed some secrets about “District 9” and there are all kinds of details emerging about the sequel to “Tron.” But by far the biggest buzz has surrounded “Twilight” (specifically the upcoming installment “New Moon”). And an even bigger story emerging from yesterday’s “Twilight” press conference? Kirsten Stewart’s clothes. She appeared with co-stars Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner wearing tight black jeans, Converse sneakers and a Minor Threat T-Shirt. Her hair is also in a permanent black shock so that she looks more like the 1978 version of Joan Jett.
Needless to say, it sparked a lot of debate on ye olde Internet, so we took to the streets to ask today’s burning question: What do you think of Kristen Stewart’s new look?
The (highly unscientific) numbers don’t lie: 84% of the people we talked do gave Stewart’s “Runaways” threads a thumbs down (and even the 16% of people who thought she was pulling it off weren’t terribly committed). She should be allowed a little slack: It’s difficult to do press for the tween-centric “Twilight” movies while also working on another project, and her commitment to the role has been admirable (she’s been hanging out with Jett and has been spotted at several rock shows). But if it gets some kids into old-school punk bands and helps to make the Runaways biopic (starring Stewart as Jett) a success, then it can’t be all bad.
What do you think: Does Stewart look good embracing a dirty punk look or was she better off in Bella Swan’s more traditional look? Let us know in the comments or head over to Your.MTV.com and make your voice heard!
