Not since Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct have we seen an edgy leading lady in a sleeveless turtleneck dress.

On Thursday, Kristen Stewart stepped out in New York City for the Ruffino Wines-sponsored premiere of her film Personal Shopper at the Metrograph. The actress took a turn from her grungy, tomboy sartorial preferences for a more opulent Parisian choice in a dress from the Chanel Pre-Fall 2017 collection.

Chanel is a go-to for K-Stew, who is a close friend of Karl Lagerfeld as well as the brand’s ambassador.

The style star completed her ensemble with Chanel jewelry and Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

Of course, her newly-shaved head made the haltered look even more fierce. And earlier that day she explained the rationale behind her extreme new look, telling the Today Show, “I’m doing a movie in a couple weeks called Underwater and I play a mechanical engineer that’s working on an oil rig that’s on the bottom of the ocean floor,” the Personal Shopper star said. “So for me, it’s practical. I’m not going to be able to have touch ups when I have a helmet on. I must have my head!”

Even had this not been for a role, she enthused, “I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time just for novel sake just because at some point in your life, you want to be able to do that.”

While she’s only had the look for three days, Stewart can’t stop raving about her new punk-inspired do, adding, “It feels amazing. I just want to head bang all day!”
