Breaking a heartthrob's heart can earn a girl quite a few enemies, and it certainly made Kristen Stewart the star you loved to hate this year. But there's no denying it — there was nothing to hate about this girl's red-carpet style!

KStew doesn't easily give up her much-loved Converse, but the star ditched the sneaks in favor of a serious style streak in 2012. While promoting Twilight, On the Road and Snow White and the Huntsman, the actress showed a flair for pulling off fashion-forward looks that mingled glamour with a risk-taking edge.

Her romantic life may have sent her into hiding (and sweatpants!) for a bit, but Kristen came back from the scandal sexier than ever in a parade of barely there gowns and minis by Zuhair Murad and Erdem. And since the face of Balenciaga is sure to continue to be a designer favorite, we can't wait to see what she has in store for 2013!
