They may rock out in leather pants and corsets as Seventies hard rockers Joan Jett and Cherie Currie in “The Runaways,” but Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning cleaned up nicely for the film’s New York premiere at Landmark Sunshine Cinema on Wednesday night, hosted by Tommy Hilfiger and Quintessentially. “You don’t want to dress like your character,” said Fanning, who plays Currie in the flick and who selected a poufy pink Elie Saab dress for the occasion. “I wanted to dress like myself.”

Stewart, who opted for an equally glam strapless Emilio Pucci number, seemed less confident about fashion. “I have no set style,” explained the actress. But she must be at least a little self-aware, since she later changed out of the stilettos she wore on the red carpet into Adidas Sambas, which any Stewart observer would say are more her.

Stewart, who plays Jett in the flick, continued talking about her generation’s fashion sense, wishing it had the same defined personal style as her on-screen alter ego. “It would be really cool to see people my age [with] a boldness that’s contagious.”

But neither Currie nor Jett were about to cop to being trend-setters. “I’m a 50-year-old mom who wields a chain saw for a living,” said Currie, who now makes a living as an artist by carving wood with power tools. “I don’t think about fashion that much.” Jett felt the same way. “

It was always less about the clothes and more about the music,” she said.
