That's an unexpected accessory!

Kristen Stewart attended the 85th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday sporting quite the fashion statement – crutches.

The On the Road actress was forced to use them to help her make her way onto the red carpet after she stepped on glass.

The star's makeup artist, Beau Nelson, tells PEOPLE she "cut the ball of her foot, quite severely, on glass two days ago." But a true pro, Stewart, 22, managed to pose for photographs without any crutches, showing off her cream-colored Reem Acra gown. Nelson adds that Stewart is in "a little bit of pain" and it was a scramble to find suitable flats!

While she isn't nominated for any Oscars, Stewart's film Breaking Dawn Part 2 did sweep the 33rd annual Golden Raspberry Awards – better known as the Razzies – with seven awards.
