Kristen Stewart, Amy Adams a 'Dream' to Dress in 'On the Road'

Sure, one of the more notable scenes in the new movie On the Road actually features an actress without clothes, but costume designer Danny Glicker promises that audiences will be blown away by the film’s clothes. And with all of the work he put into these looks, they’d better be.

“It was a hugely immersive research period,” Glicker (who was nominated for an Oscar for his work on Milk) tells PEOPLE. “We obviously started with the script, but then I really had to reconstruct Jack Kerouac’s entire journey, so that we’d have a reference point for every place that the characters go.”

The film takes viewers on a trip that extends throughout the U.S. and Mexico of the 1950s, so Glicker says he “had to look with a fresh set of eyes at what the countries really did look like back then, in post-war America.”

However, a perk of the job was dressing the film’s leads: Kristen Stewart, Amy Adams and Kirsten Dunst. “It was a dream,” Glicker says. “They were amazing. I had so much fun with all of them.”

Glicker says each woman “had a very specific piece of the puzzle. Kristen and I worked super closely together — she was so committed to the role,” he shares. “And to see her intelligence and awareness of how clothing can inform every aspect of her understanding of a character … that was pure pleasure.”

Why Is Kristen Stewart Talking About Her Bra?

Sep/12/2012 at 05:00 PM ET

We never imagined that one very tight-lipped star would spill about such a personal topic, but Kristen Stewart just proved us wrong when she opened up about her skivvies. She’s not talking about her personal drawer of unmentionables, though; Stewart is sharing details on the underpinnings she wore while filming On the Road.

Stewart tells InStyle.com that the movie’s costume designer, Danny Glicker, took every aspect of the costumes into consideration, right down to the cast’s underwear. “He is so caring and specific about details,” she says. “Even with an article of clothing like an undergarment, he’s like, ‘Do you feel pretty? Do you like the bra? Do you like the socks? Do you like the snaps holding them up?'”

So, what exactly did Stewart’s on-screen undergarments consist of? Costar Kirsten Dunst reveals that the two actresses sported some very retro pieces. “We had high-waisted underwear and bras with a pointed shape,” Dunst admits. “You can tell because of the way your breasts look in the shirts is a more pointed silhouette.” Well, apparently the right bra can make all the difference. Tell us: Are you surprised costume designers even take into consideration the cast’s undergarments?

Why the 'Bachelorette' Stars Wanted to Burn Their Costumes After Filming

Aug/27/2012 at 09:00 AM ET

Bachelorette: Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher RADiUS-TWC

Even celebrities have to learn to get dressed on a dime.

While Bachelorette boasts some high-wattage stars, the indie film was done on a relatively low budget. That doesn’t mean the actresses — Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan — skimped on their wardrobes, though.

“I actually asked Chanel to lend me a bag and a watch for the movie because [my character] Reagan’s very put together,” Dunst told PEOPLE Thursday at the Los Angeles premiere of the comedy, which hits theaters Sept. 7 and is currently available on iTunes and Video on Demand.

Because the film takes place predominately during the night before a wedding, most of the cast members were in the same outfits for much of the two-month shoot. For Dunst, that meant wearing a high-neck dress almost daily to reflect her character’s “type-A personality.”

Fashion flashback alert! The hippie-chic look is back in full force these days, thanks in part to the resurgence of floral headpieces.

We first saw the accessory at the Coachella Music Festival, where Vanessa Hudgens and Paris Hilton both sported Cult Gaia rose crowns ($75). Although we weren’t shocked to spot the topper at the festival since Woodstock-worthy ensembles are encouraged, we were surprised to see these babies on the red carpet.

There are still four days remaining at the ultra-chic Cannes Film Festival, but we’ve been drooling over the fierce fashions since the opening ceremonies.

Tuesday, late arrival Kirsten Dunst (left) made her first move at the On The Road photo call, wearing a feminine Dolce & Gabbana dress, plus a Van Cleef & Arpels watch and metallic platform heels.

On Friday, Naomi Watts (center) brought the drama at the Madagascar 3 premiere, choosing a dreamy Marchesa confection paired with romantic waves.

The Most Memorable Looks at The Met Gala

The Met Ball is often considered the Oscars of fashion, so we expect (and anxiously wait!) to see what over-the-top looks will hit the red carpet. Last night was a sea of gold, peplum, and feathers, but here are the stars that stood out for taking real style risks:

Beyoncé: She’s baaack! The superstar was last to arrive on the red carpet, and she was totally worth the wait. The sheer and feathered Givency Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci gown was the perfect look to flaunt the singer’s enviable post-baby body.

Karolina Kurkova: Taking the color of the night to the next level, the supermodel stunned in a head-to-toe (turban included) gold Bridget Bardot-esque ensemble by Rachel Zoe.

Emma Stone: Never one to conform, Stone was one of the few ladies rocking a short dress. The actress looked like a doll in a red Lanvin mini adorned with more than 3,000 plastic flowers, according to her date (and designer) Alber Elbaz.

Florence Welch: Somehow the singer always makes her signature style work — and that was the case for last night’s intricate multi-tiered Alexander McQueen confection.
