Kristen Stewart works hard to conceal her private life, but when it comes to dressing for the red carpet, it seems she’s got no problem with transparency.

At last night’s New York City premiere of On the Road, the actress wore a look –a sheer embroidered sheath over a retro bra and hot pants — from Erdem’s Spring 2013 collection. The ensemble was the latest in a string of revealing outfits worn by the actress in the last few months. Why has Stewart embraced peek-a-boo fashion?

“One of the things that I love about her is that she is willing to take a risk,” stylist Tara Swennen — who has worked with Stewart since 2007 — told The Cut during a recent interview. “As a stylist, that is one of the best things you can ask for. She’s not afraid of prints and sheerness and textures.”

Though she’s nudged Stewart into trying new things, Swennen has resigned herself to the fact that the actress won’t wear earrings (because her ears aren’t pierced), avoids carrying a purse on the red carpet so that her hands are free to sign autographs for fans, and will never spend the whole night in heels.

“She’ll always change into her Converse by halfway through a carpet, which is to be expected at this point, but she puts on the heels for me for the photos, God bless her.”
