Kristen Stewart looks like an edgy Disney princess. Sitting across from her at a posh suite decorated with her recent campaign for Balenciaga’s Florabotanica fragrance at the Bowery Hotel in NYC, I am taken in by her charisma. She has creamy (dare I say snowy) white skin that she credits to her lifelong addiction to Proactiv, soulful green eyes outlined with a smudge of smoky eye shadow, and a curvaceous rose-hued mouth. Juxtaposing her delicate features is her enviably naturally beach-textured hair, casually thrown to one side and spilling over her light denim button-down, which she paired with dark denim jeans. If she passed me on the street in a hat, sunglasses, and puffy coat, I would probably mistake her for another petite brunette New Yorker. She’s that girl-next-door.
But as I mentioned, she’s undeniably charming — as she earnestly answers all my beauty questions, I feel myself rooting for her just as I’ve rooted for her many famous characters (Bella Swan from Twilight, Snow White from Snow White and the Huntsman, and so on). She’s undoubtably an A-list movie star of the young Hollywood set, and being in the spotlight has made her a style icon known for her edgy sartorial choices. With her second Balenciaga campaign under her belt, she is eager to talk all things grooming, including her all-or-nothing attitude toward red lips, the key ingredient to her effortlessly cool mane, and which male celebrity may be inspiring her next hairstyle.
LA Times – It is, Kristen Stewart agrees, just like falling in love.
“It’s just a very familiar, necessary feeling when you read a script you want to do,” the actress says, coming alive at just the memory. “I’ve gone with my gut, taken a lot of the thinking away, and been very lucky.
“As an artist,” she continues, her energy rising, “If you view what you do as product, you’ll never do anything true to yourself, never do anything you’re proud of. I’ve never thought, ‘My career should go in this direction.’ There’s no way to be tactical for me.”
Stewart got that familiar feeling when she read writer-director Peter Sattler’s script for “Camp X-Ray,” which has its debut Friday as part of the Sundance Film Festival’s dramatic competition.
Peter Sattler (director of Camp X-Ray) has talks about Kristen and her role in the film in a new Q&A with FanSpired.com.
Q: In your own words can you describe what this film is about?
At its most basic level, CAMP X-RAY is a story about two people trapped in a very strange place that manage to find a connection with each other. But of course, it’s about a lot of other things too. It’s about a young woman who leaves her home for the first time. A woman who joins the army to find purpose, only to end up in a place where that purpose couldn’t be less pure. It’s about a man desperate to reach out beyond his world as well. To experience something outside the routine of his tiny cell.
Q: What was the inspiration for CAMP X-RAY?
It all started with the book cart. I saw some documentary footage of a guard and a detainee arguing about the different books on the library cart. Their exchange was so mundane, so idiosyncratic, so utterly ridiculous given the context of where they were. And in that exact moment, I could see an entire film. One hallway, two people, and the utterly absurd relationship that they are forced to have. And that’s what I was drawn to. I just wanted to put those two characters in a room and see what they said to each other, which is very much the way I started writing. Having no direction at all. Just dropping them in a test tube and seeing what words came out of their mouths. And the more banal their conversation, the more interested I was in it, because it was the absurdity of these moments that most perfectly captured my feelings on Guantanamo Bay. I very much wanted to paint our portrayal of this place in stark absurdist colors.Continue Reading
ABC News has a new interview with Kristen regarding Equals.
Kristen Stewart has signed on to play the lead in “Like Crazy” director Drake Doremus’ futuristic love story “Equals,” and it’s making her a nervous wreck.
“I can’t believe I agreed to do it,” said the “Twilight” actress about her upcoming role in the sci-fi drama, which also stars Nicholas Hoult of the upcoming “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
Stewart describes “Equals” as a slightly updated version of the 1956 film “1984,” based on George Orwell’s classic 1949 novel about rebellion in a repressed futuristic society. “Equals” begins filming later this year.
“I’m terrified of it,” said the 23-year-old actress in a recent interview. “Though it’s a movie with a really basic concept, it’s overtly ambitious.”
“In ‘Equals,’ things go wrong because you can’t deny the humanity in everyone,” said Stewart. “It’s the most devastating story.”
Vogue – Kristen Stewart is the new face of Chanel, we can confirm. The 2013 Métiers d’Art Paris‐Dallas collection campaign has been shot by Karl Lagerfeld and will be released in May 2014.
The actress attended the brand’s latest Metiers d’Art show last night in Dallas. She wore high-waisted orange leather trousers with a cropped long-sleeved top from the spring/summer 2014 Chanel show. She first met Lagerfeld in January 2012 during a photo shoot in Paris, when she was photographed in Chanel Couture.
Stewart also appears in Balenciaga’s Florabotanica campaign. The star follows in the footsteps of Blake Lively, Keira Knightley and Diane Kruger, who have also fronted adverts for the brand.
Grazia Daily have a new interview with London-based designer Osman Yousefzada, who dressed Kristen for The Kid’s Choice Awards.
Think the Kids’ Choice Awards, think icky green slime – but there was more than slum dunks grabbing our attention this year. Because when the fun-tastic show rolled into LA this weekend, all eyes were on Kristen Stewart and not just due to that reunion.
In fact, K-Stew looked cooler than ever clad in a blue and black chequered top and matching shorts topped off with a messy fishtail plait and black patent heels by Christian Louboutin. Considering the actress provided one of her greatest style swishes ever when she rocked Louis Vuitton’s checks back in October, it makes sense that she’s returned to the super-hot style. What’s more, the edgy look is a welcome treat amid the thigh-grazing mini-dresses her fellow attendees opted for.
