She has yet to really prove herself as a post-Twilight movie star (like pretty much everyone in those execrable films), but one thing’s for sure. Kristen Stewart has established her modeling bona fides.
“Clouds of Sils Maria” actress Kristen Stewart covers the latest issue of Vanity Fair France magazine in Chanel couture photographed by Sebastian Kim and styled by Virginie Mouzat.
That’s probably giving her slightly too much credit, since we don’t think she has any great skill in working an ensemble or using her body in interesting ways. What she does have is an innately charismatic persona and a face that photographs really well, as well as the exact right kind of body for which high fashion is designed. In short: the girl just looks good in pictures.
BONUS! Things that came out of her mouth in between posing:
“I never really thought of anything in terms of designing a career. I never tried to shape people’s perspectives of me, which is something that a lot of people do. There are certain actors and artists who want to be a certain kind of actor or certain kind of artist, and I’m really not like that. I have very much fallen into every situation, every creative and not creative experience, that I have delved into, based on gut.”
“I attribute my early start to my ability to do this job. It requires being comfortable within an insane amount of attention. If I hadn’t started out when I was really little I don’t think I would have done this as a teenager or as a young adult. It’s not in my make-up to go stand in the middle of a room. But I really wanted to be an actor and I wanted to make movies.”
“My relationship with fashion is by default because as an actress you have to walk down these carpets, and from a young age I have done that. [...] it was just annoying that I had to wear these heels and, like, try and satisfy people who wanted to talk about the heels. [...] I’ve said this about fashion. When it’s exciting you’re reaching in and finding parts of yourself that are a new side, that you wouldn’t be able to find had you not put the piece on.”
