Kristen Stewart sports '60s look on ELLE UK magazine cover (Photo, poll)
Kristen Stewart, star of the "Twilight" films" and the new movie "Snow White and The Huntsman," sports a 1960s look on the cover of ELLE UK magazine's June 2012 issue
The 22-year-old actress' hair is slicked back, "Mad Men"-style, while retaining volume, making it appear as if she has a bob haircut. She is wearing a cream Jil Sander spring 2012 knit dress and sports what the magazine dubs an "ice-blue" gaze. The issue is set for release on May 2.
Stewart was seen with her usual long hair on Thursday, April 26, at Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures's CinemaCon 2012 event in Las Vegas, where the actress is promoting "Snow White and the Huntsman," which is distributed by Universal Pictures.
Stewart also showcases a new, supernatural look in the upcoming "Twilight" sequel, "Breaking Dawn - Part 2."
The actress plays Bella Swan, a human teenage girl who marries vampire Edward Cullen, portrayed by Robert Pattinson, in the previous 2011 installment. She becomes a vampire after giving birth to their daughter following a rapid and dangerous pregnancy. The second part, which is set to be released in November, sees her adapting to her new life as an immortal. A teaser trailer for "Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" was released in March and features Stewart's character with her new vampire eyes, which are red.
A new official photo from the film shows the actress sporting the same look while standing alongside Pattinson. The image was posted online by the film's studio, Summit Entertainment, on Thursday.
"The thing about 'Part 2' - it's different," director Bill Condon told OnTheRedCarpet.com. "It's like an epic movie. This is vampires from around the world, it's global. You've been watching vampires for four movies now. Now, Bella's a vampire and you get to experience what that's like. What it's like to hunt. What it's like never to sleep. What it's like to have vampire sex. You get that too."
Stewart commands a massive following thanks to the success of the "Twilight" films. Actress Molly Ringwald, who rose to fame with the cult movie "The Breakfast Club" and other 1980s teen films, mentioned her in a recent Q&A "Ask Me Anything" session with fans on the website Reddit.
When asked by a user, "How did you manage to get hotter with age," Ringwald joked: "I drink the blood of Kristen Stewart."
Stewart also stars in the drama film "On The Road," based on a 1950s novel by Jack Kerouac. It is set for release later this year but an official U.S. date has not been announced.
"Snow White and the Huntsman" is due to hit theaters on June 1 and stars Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen. Stewart's character, Snow White, enlists the help of the Huntsman, played by Chris Hemsworth, in a bid to defeat her.
"It's really been awesome to play a young girl who is so human," Stewart said in a video interview to promote the film.
The actress called "Snow White and the Huntsman" a "revenge movie." and says its action scenes will inspire viewers to root loudly for her warrior character.
"'Snow White is innately defensive and so it's always down to that last second ... you're going to throw your drink on the ground and stand and go, 'Yeah!'" she said. "We had so many real explosives going off and that was awesome."
