Kristen Stewart for the November 2011 issue of British GQ photographed by Norman Jean Roy.
These pictures got a lot of press, but we’re just not feeling them. Let’s face it: the girl is not a girly-girl. You can slap on the eyeliner and lacquer the hair and she can give soundbites about how she “feels like a woman,” but we just don’t buy it. If we were styling her for a shoot, we’d be much more inclined to go the jeans, natural makeup, and blown out hair look with her, but everyone seems to want to dress her up like an old Hollywood star. Don’t get us wrong; she looks very pretty in all of these shots. She just doesn’t look like herself.
EDITED TO ADD: For the legions of angry KStew fangurls on twitter: We’re not saying we don’t buy that she’s a woman and we’re not saying that one has to be a girly-girl to be a woman. We’re saying that we don’t buy it when she says dressing up like this makes her feel like a woman.
