Kristen Stewart made her first public appearance since her cheating scandal hit headlines in July Thursday night. The Twilight star was promoting her new film On the Road, an adaptation of Jack Kerouac's novel, at its premiere during this year's Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

Kristen skipped out of the film's London premiere last month over the fallout from her "indescretion" when she cheated on boyfriend of three years Robert Pattinson. Fans branded her a "Trampire" after she confessed to stories of her infidelities with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.

K-Stew wore a black lace Zuhair Murad floral dress with lots of scarlet flowers on it (but no scarlet letters) for the TIFF premiere and signed plenty of autographs for forgiving fans. She was joined by co-stars Garrett Hedlund and Kirsten Dunst.

After her initial jitters over her first public appearance after her split from Pattinson, Kristen revealed that she was given a warm welcom by fans.

"I do kind of black out a little when I show up at places like this, and I've felt so welcomed," she told an reporter at the event. "I'm so proud of the movie... Everyone who cares about this book has been waiting forever to see it, so I think that's the most important thing."

Meanwhile, ex-Pattinson was in Los Angeles Thursday night for the MTV Video Music Awards to present fans with the latest trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2. The film opens in November; and we're sure there will be plenty of tension on that red carpet.
