KRISTEN STEWART TELLS POPSUGAR ABOUT HER BEAUTY ROUTINE, STYLE & NEW BALENCIAGA CAMPAIGN
"...undeniably charming, and 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." ~ PopSugar
Looking as gorgeous as ever, PopSugar captures Kristen Stewart's exquisite looks in their photos as she spills her beauty secrets in a new interview.
Stewart being the new face of Chanel and a few weeks into the second campaign for a Balenciaga fragrance, the Snow White and the Huntsman star feels comfortable with talking about beauty and fashion these days.
More after the jump
From her half-braided hairstyle she recently displayed at the Sundance Film Festival to her nude campaign ad, people are truly interested in what Stewart brings to the beauty table.
Here are a few snippets from her interview.
PS: What was it like shooting the new campaign?
KS: It was fun and cool. The imagery that is on my body was physically there. The flowers were all handmade, perfectly formed paper flowers. It was cool to see those in person.
PS: Explain the decision to go topless for it?
KS: It was just about being simple. We had no intention of suggesting that I was completely naked. It was just about making it about the fragrance and the imagery.
PS: Do you have your own perfume-wearing or spritzing technique?
KS: I like two shots right here [points to both sides of her neck] after I take a shower. I like to do one over my clothes, too — it stays on longer.
PS: You seem to be drawn to more dramatic eye makeup on the red carpet. Why do you like to play up your eyes?
KS: Typically, I am pretty plain and not too concerned with makeup and stuff. I dress really practically, so when I do red carpet things, I like to go extreme on the other side of it. I really like working with people who love what they do and are a bit more bold. If you're going to do that job, it's always more interesting to find wrists and not people who just want to get it done. It can be fun to find different aspects of myself, since it's not usually what I do.
PS: How has your beauty look changed over time, especially since you came into the spotlight?
KS: I've always — with everything — gone with my instincts about things. I can put more stock in my instincts now, because I know myself a little bit better. I typically have an easier time finding exactly what I like and what I'm comfortable in. You do it for a couple of years, and you know what you gravitate toward.
PS: Which of your past characters aligns most with your own beauty look?
KS: It was fun to play Joan Jett [in The Runaways]. She is a huge style icon — for me, personally, and just in general. That was so specific. But it was fun to step into her shoes because she is so extreme. The most "me" was probably — oh, man — that's the thing, I am really simple. I loved doing On the Road. That's a period piece, and I don't specifically identify with the clothes I was wearing. It was more the style in which we wore them, the mood of it. I like thing being a little worn-in. They're all really comfortable in what they're wearing, and they're not really thinking about it, but they love it. That's usually what I go for.
