The annual event, which raises funds to provide clean water sources in underdeveloped nations, is currently in its seventh year. Stewart walked the red carpet with Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, who was honored at the event for her dedication to the Thirst Project. The actress delivered a speech about Hardwicke at the event, applauding the filmmaker for her humanitarian efforts.
Stewart was also joined on the red carpet by the organization’s President/CEO Seth Maxwell, and mingled inside the event with Lance Bass, who posted a photo of the two of them on Instagram. The singer tagged the picture with the caption, “With #KristenStewart at the #ThirstGala for @ThirstProject – honoring amazing people fighting the world’s #WaterCrisis.”
Stewart wore a sheer white lace dress and a pair of high heels to the charity event, which has provided clean water to more than 285,000 people across the globe since its inception in 2010. The ceremony marked the actress’s first major public appearance since attending last month’s Cannes Film Festival. Check out below a photo gallery of Stewart at the 7th Annual Thirst Gala!
