His latest muse! Kristen Stewart looks ladylike in red vintage dress as she continues filming on the set of new Woody Allen flick

She's famously chosen comfort over fashion before, swapping stilettos for trainers at star-studded red carpet events.

But this fashion faux pas of socks and sandals wasn't Kristen Stewart's own choice, as she was in character for her new role, filming for Woody Allen's latest movie in Los Angeles on Friday night.

The 25-year-old actress covered up in the red, vintage polka dot dress with matching socks and 1940s style headband for the scenes filmed at a restaurant in West Hollywood, while also being joined by the famous director.

Kristen cut an elegant figure, looking the perfect picture of 1940s fashion, and a world away from her usual more grungy self.

Her slender frame was well covered by the extremely conservative piece, which came to below her knees, keeping her legs under wraps.

The look was finished off the look with a pair of gold sandals, and a small, woven heart-shaped handbag.

She had her medium-length brunette locks down, kept out of her face by a girlish white bow tied around her head.

It was clearly a long day filming on the film - which is, as yet, a secret - as earlier Kristen was spotted in a very different outfit, showing off her tiny waist.

She looked rather lovely in a pink, patterned tie-up blouse along with white mini skirt.

Her mile-high legs could be seen full-view as the separate look was completed with white socks and a pair of strappy beige leather heels.

Throughout both scenes, the Twilight star wore natural, complimentary make-up including a swipe of pink lip and blush powder around her face.

She was not alone on set as co-star Jesse Eisenberg also rocked the fashions of the era as they got ready to film a scene together. This will be the third flick the two stars have done together.

The 31-year-old actor looked dapper in a brown suit with matching brown leather shoes.

The Zombieland star finished off the look with a blue striped dress shirt, brown striped tie and his hair elegantly dishevelled.

Legendary director Woody was also seen giving the two young, talented stars direction before getting behind the camera.

The 79-year-old filmmaker wore a blue checked button-down tucked into baggy khaki trousers, brown leather shoes, a brown bucket hat and his signature thick-rimmed black plastic spectacles.
