PIC: Kristen Stewart Wore Robert Pattinson's Hat, Backpack, Ring for First Appearance Post-Scandal
Their relationship may be on the rocks, but Kristen Stewart is keeping Robert Pattinson close to her heart.
As previously revealed, the 22-year-old actress came out of hiding for the first time since her affair scandal on Monday Aug. 20 -- and new photos from that outing suggest Stewart may be sending a message to her heartbroken man, 26. Looking somber and noticeably thin, Stewart stepped out wearing numerous items belonging to Pattinson: his black backpack(adorned with blue streamers) and his black and orange Orioles baseball cap.
Most importantly to Twilight fans, Stewart is still wearing the gold ring Pattinson previously gave her. She opened up about the bauble for the time in a June interview with Elle magazine. "Everyone wants to know," she said of the rumors it was a gift from Pattinson. "Everyone knows already -- it's ridiculous."
The actress may be using Pattinson's possessions as a source of comfort in the wake of her July 17 fling with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. "She isn't sleeping and she stays up all night crying," a source tells the new Us Weekly, out now. "She's close to a total meltdown."
41-year-old Sanders, meanwhile, has stepped out since his fling with Stewart making a similar statement by wearing his wedding band. On Thursday, Sanders (who shares two small kids with wife Liberty Ross) stepped out in the Hollywood Hills area of Los Angeles and, with a big grin on his face, seemed to purposefully flash his ring to photographers.
British model Ross, however, is forgoing her own marital bling. She made her first red carpet appearance at Wednesday's Hollywood premiere of Lawless, with her wedding ring noticeably missing from her finger. "She is talking to and seeing Rupert now for the kids," a source told Us, "but as far as the marriage she's still processing everything that happened."
