Kristen Stewart’s Extreme Winged Eye
When: The Aug. 18 American Ultra premiere in L.A.
Why It Matters: Stewart demonstrated how to wear this year’s graphic eyeliner trend like a pro.
“What started out as a basic concept” — an Edie Sedgwick eye, says makeup artist Jillian Dempsey — “gravitated into a much stronger eye than planned.” Just as well, as Stewart’s cat eye became a definitive example of one of the year’s biggest trends.
Dempsey applied jet black khol eyeliner from her own eponymous brand, and the fierce eye combined with the plunging, sequined Zuhair Murad playsuit and a textured, slightly disheveled updo created a rock ‘n’ roll vibe that was signature Stewart.

Woody Allen’s filming a newie. Surprise! About young love. More surprise.
Woody: “No title yet. If it comes out good, it’s an aggressive title, maybe ‘Poets of New York.’ If it’s not good, it gets a quiet nothing title like ‘Rain in the City.’ “While you’re shooting you can’t tell if it’s a winner. Every day you see dailies. Looks good. But strung all together, after sitting through 20 scenes, it’s sometimes not so charming. That’s why trailers always look perfect.”
Drake Doremus directed the film, which first premiered at Venice and then TIFF.
