After taking over the newsstands for the last month and half with amazing editorials in several major fashion magazines, the 22-year-old “Snow White and the Huntsman” actress apparently saved the most glamorous for last.
Can we just take a moment to admire the ultra-glam cover of the July 2012 issue of Vanity Fair magazine, lens by Marios Testino, on which Kristen strikes a sultry pose in a drop-dead-goreous gown from the Spring 2012 haute couture Armani Privé collection, while an adorable Pomeranian puppy sits pretty on her lap?
Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury worked with Kristen to create an intensely retro-fab look, which was reminiscent of an old Hollywood goddess, with spacy eyelashes and sleek dark tresses (courtesy of hairstylist Marc Lopez) that gave me insta-Cher flashbacks from the 1970s.
In the issue, Kristen talks about working in film, and gets pretty candid when speaking of the moment she knew “Twilight” had changed her life for good, taking the “perfect” pictures, and of course, her style. This is a fashion magazine, after all.
“Look at a picture of me before I was 15. I am a boy. I wore my brother’s clothes, dude! Not like I cared that much, but I remember being made fun of because I wasn’t wearing Juicy jeans. I didn’t even think about it. I wore my gym clothes. But it’s not like I didn’t care that they made fun of me. It really bothered me. I remember this girl in sixth grade looked at me in gym and was like, ‘Oh my God! That’s disgusting—you don’t shave your legs!”
If you’re completely dazzled and dazed by the cover, wait until you see the rest of Testino’s vision for the issue along with the many other gorgeous Spring 2012 haute couture looks that stylist Jessica Diehl hooked Ms. Stewart up with.
You won’t find this photo in the actual issue, but thank goodness for Behind-the-Scenes footage!
Kristen’s dramatic black hat is by Heather Huey.
This full look is from the Givenchy haute couture collection.
Kristen is picture perfect in another Dior haute couture ball gown. This time around she wore a black and white pleated tulle dress with a sleeveless splattered bodice. Her hat is Philip Treacy.
In her hair, Kristen wore a diamond star “Comète” broach from Chanel Fine Jewelry.
How artistically breathtaking is this photo of Kristen in a crystal embroidered, long sleeve gold gown from Valentino haute couture? The side view showed off her Repossi “Boucles D’Oreille” earrings, while her hand-on-hip pose spotlighted her “Bagues” ring — also Repossi.
Kristen’s feathered hat creation is from Heather Huey.
They were not to be missed.
