As we posted about last night, Kirsten was at the premiere for her new movie On The Road held at the Toronto Film Festival last night, and I’ve now added another 50+ HQ photos from the event to our Gallery. Kirsten looked so pretty in a pale pink dress by Dior, with her hair styled in a very 1940’s style with loose curls and a Swarovski crystal clip. Kiki accessoried with a Van Cleef & Arpels Lotus ring.

Check out the additional photos in our Gallery, and scroll down this post for an article about the event plus some videos.

Toronto Film Fest: ‘On the Road’ cast, crew celebrate at after-party (sans Kristen Stewart), despite premiere delays

Oh the trials and tribulations of technology, not to mention film projectors.

The highly anticipated Toronto International Film Festival premiere Thursday of beat drama On the Road, starring Kristen Stewart and based on Jack Kerouac’s stream-of-consciousness road novel, started off to a rocky start, but bounced back, all cylinders running.

Director Walter Salles confirmed to EW.com at a late-night after-party for the film, at the new Toronto bar-restaurant Patria, that projector and other tech issues following Jason Reitman’s live-read of American Beauty at TIFF venue the Ryerson Theatre led to the premiere of On the Road, scheduled after at the same venue, being delayed an hour.

Despite all that, Salles looked utterly elated and beatific at the Alliance Films, IFC Films and Sundance-presented bash, smiling and dishing out hugs to friends, including smartly affable What Maisie Knew directors Scott McGehee and David Siegel, whose own film premieres at TIFF Friday night. On the Road costar Kirsten Dunst, her long blonde hair down in a Veronica Lake wave, wearing a pale, floor-length dress, sipped drinks surrounded by a posse in an upstairs VIP area in the back. Guests guzzled wine, and snacked on Spanish hors d’oeuvres such as mini cubed omelettes with cooked onion.

“Toronto has the most amazing, amazing audiences,” said Salles, upbeat. “They laughed, they cried at the end of the film.”

Stewart, wearing a sexy, snug, flower-decorated cocktail dress, Dunst and Dunst’s real-life boyfriend Garrett Hedlund, her On the Road costar as wild man Dean Moriarty, had snuggled up for photos on the red carpet at the premiere. But Stewart, as of 1:30 a.m. Friday, was a no-show at the party.

Starlets, regardless of media scrutiny or status, need beauty sleep too.
