Kristen Stewart is reliably as entertaining on-screen as she is off it. Observe, for example, the looks she wore throughout the Charlie’s Angels press tour, which fashion Twitter followed with baited breath. It’s not just about what Stewart is sporting, but what she isn’t: a shirt—at least in the classic sense of the word. The actor, who turned 31 on Friday, has been testing its limits for a full five years now, ever since she turned up on the red carpet of a New York Film Festival premiere in an unbuttoned blazer, matching red trousers, and absolutely nothing else. Behold her bare torso in all its glory, from that historic day right up to the present, here.
