It’s been an odd year for Kristen Stewart, everyone will remember the scandal of the summer that cast a shadow over the impending last Twilight movie. Would her and Rob appear together reconciled or would it be a series of awkward red carpet appearances and separate hotels rooms where they couldn’t be seen in a room together?
Kristen’s year started promisingly enough, a couture photo shoot in Paris with Karl Lagerfeld behind the lens for Vanity Fair to promote Snow White and the Huntsman, appearances on the press tour of her indie movie On the Road in Cannes and rather shockingly a number one spot on Glamour UK magazine’s Best Dressed of 2012.
I re-read the above post, and I was not happy. I chuckled to myself, because really Kristen is one of those people akin to Marmite. She has good days that everyone loves what she wears, she has days where you get where she was going with it and divides the critics and then she has really bad days which usually outweigh the good especially when she isn’t on a promo tour for a movie.
I used to really detest Kristen, she used to come across like she didn’t care that she was this person that younger girls looked up to especially when Twilight first came out. You could see how much she hated been on that red carpet, giving interviews and just generally attempting to be a pleasant person. Remember when she came out with this when giving an interview to Elle UK in 2010, when talking about the papparazzi:
“The photos are so … I feel like I’m looking at someone being raped,” she tells Britain’s Elle magazine. “A lot of the time I can’t handle it.”
Ugh, we know how horrible it is but as the argument goes, as an actor/actress part of your job is being in the public eye. You use the media to promote your movies, perfumes when you need to so it has to work both ways. Privacy is no longer yours if you flaunt yourself in front of the camera, especially with a married director *ahem*.
After this ugly quote, and over the past year I have to admit Kristen has become happier in front of the camera, she is more open when answering questions, she is still awkward because that is who she probably is, and of course has grown up even though she is still only 22.
Yes she was born in 1990, and even though she has been acting since around 10 she is still so so young. It seems that Hollywood likes to age people in the movie industry, just take the Fanning sisters, Elle 14, and Dakota 18, they have been around for what seems an age yet they are still in education.
But Kristen is a hot commodity in the industry and although some thought her turn as a “trampire” would hurt her image I really don’t think it has. Not one bit. She cheated on
Edward Rob, and the media thought it was the end of the world, he seemed to have gotten over it in time for the Twilight promo tour, and everyone went home happy.
When Kristen isn’t on the red carpet her uniform of scruffy trainers, knotted tee and jacket with an optional trucker cap (I mean who genuinely wears those anymore?!) is hideous when compared to the likes of Miranda Kerr and Victoria Beckham, but they are full-time celebrities devoted to their look, Kristen works best when she has a stylist on hand to tell her to put the trainers down and wear the heels…
Here are my favourite Kristen moments on the Twilight Saga red carpet, my ultimate favourite has to be the Reem Acra but then I absolutely loved her Louis Vuitton black and white playsuit in Tokyo.
