Kristen Stewart's Cannes comeback: How she stole the film festival


Kristen Stewart has been a prominent fixture on the Cannes red carpet as she premiered two new films at the festival.

Despite being known for avoiding publicity, Kristen has courted the cameras in a variety of beautiful outfits that have seen her rival Blake Lively as "Queen of Cannes".

Kristen stepped out on Tuesday for new movie Personal Shopper, a French thriller about a young American working as, you guessed it, a personal shopper in Paris who tries to communicate with the ghost of her dead brother.

Despite being initially booed at a press screening, the film - and Kristen - received a nearly five-minute standing ovation at the premiere, according to reports.

Kristen also won over fans with Woody Allen's new film Cafe Society, as a young secretary who falls in love with the nephew (Jesse Eisenberg) of her boss (Steve Carell), while having an affair with him.

On top of this, Kristen supported pal Riley Keough at the premiere of American Honey where she threw off her moody persona and was spotted dancing on the red carpet (see also Shia LaBeouf).

Add to that the gorgeous gowns she's worn this week, and Kristen Stewart is back on form after a dry patch following Still Alice.

Here are her best Cannes looks:
