As we reported on Saturday, Kristen attended the Oscar Rehearsals with a right foot injury. Last Night, Kristen strutted her stuff on the Red Carpet and on stage presenting with Daniel Radcliffe with crutches in tow. PEOPLE talked to Kristen’s make-up team and got the scoop as to why she’s injured:
Kristen Stewart attended the 85th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday sporting quite the fashion statement – crutches.
The On the Road actress was forced to use them to help her make her way onto the red carpet after she stepped on glass.
The star’s makeup artist, Beau Nelson, tells PEOPLE she “cut the ball of her foot, quite severely, on glass two days ago.” But a true pro, Stewart, 22, managed to pose for photographs without any crutches, showing off her cream-colored Reem Acra gown. Nelson adds that Stewart is in “a little bit of pain” and it was a scramble to find suitable flats!
Us Weekly explains that Kristen invited her friends over to comfort her while getting ready for the Oscars, saying she was really nervous, especially now that she had to use crutches.
Indeed, Stewart’s glam squad told Us Weekly more about the young star’s injury. “She had sliced her foot and everyone was worrying about would she wear heels or flats or one heel, crutches or no crutches,” manicurist Ashlie Johnson told Us. “She tried so many options, she was really a trouper.”
“Kristen was nervous about her crutches so having her friends around playing music was just what she needed,” hairstylist Danilo said. “We all were trying to make her feel better and her friends were trying to tell her she’d be fine, she has insecurities about being in front of people so today was even tougher.”
