Stewart, 26, showed off her look at the premiere of her new film “Certain Women” at the New York Film Festival last night.
The film focuses on three women whose lives intersect in a small Montana town. She plays her first openly lesbian character.
Stewart, as Beth Travis, is a young lawyer and night-school teacher who struggles to form a relationship with a rough-hewn ranch hand played by Lily Gladstone.
Gladstone, 29, who is part Native American, was raised on the Blackfeet Reservation in Northwestern Montana. “Certain Women” is considered a breakout role for her.
On a personal level, the former “Twilight” actress has been going through a metamorphosis since she came out as a lesbian in an interview in the August issue of Elle magazine.
Since then, she’s spoken more openly about her relationship with steady girlfriend Alicia Cargile, and move to a more masculine androgynous look.
She increasingly trimmed her once flowing brunette locks. She debuted her latest cut last month at the Chanel Dinner Celebrating N 5 L’Eau at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood.
She went from dark hair with blond streaks to full-on blonde pixie cut.
The look evoked Amber Heard, Ellen DeGeneres, Ellen Page and other noted lesbian actresses.
At the film festival, Stewart appeared with “Certain Women” stars Laura Dern and Gladstone and Director Kelly Reichardt, best known for her 2015 film “Night Moves.”
The film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January and has won a rare 100 percent rating on rottentomatoes from the 24 critics who have reviewed it.
“People go, ‘What’s the most important part? Show me the point where something happens.’ That’s what we’re used to seeing in movies,” said Stewart, who is generating some Oscar buzz for her role.
“But if you can look at the stuff that goes on in between, like getting to and fro, that’s when things start living. It’s really vulnerable to not be expected to play something. All of sudden, you start revealing things instead of displaying them,” she added.
Stewart has two other films screening at the festival, her Olivier Assayas meditation “Personal Shopper” and Billy Lynn’s “Long Halftime Walk.”
“Certain Women” will be released in a limited run on Oct. 14.
