Kristen Stewart W Magazine
It’s not Brooke Shields, it’s not Lindsay Lohan, it’s a Barbarella-haired Kristen Stewart on the cover of W Magazine‘s September 2011 issue! What a knockout. With the combination of her white Max Mara mohair and wool sweater plus a swipe Rouge Dior lipstick in Angélique Beige, she has retro, chill-out glamour down to a tee.

Inside the editorial, shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, she continues to vamp it up in Junya Watanabe, Dolce & Gabbana, Theory, and the same Gucci dress Beyonce Knowles wore on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK.

My favourite segment from the accompanying interview:

Twilight was your college, and you graduated, in a way: You became Bella Swan at 17, and now you’re 21.
Yeah—and that time has been sort of nuts for me. In film, I have chronicled every stage of my life since I was nine. And it’s more intense now, obviously, because I’m not in control of it anymore.
You’re not in charge of your life?
No. Not really. Not if I want to think solely about what I really like to do. It’s a funny thing: You want so badly for people to see what you do—you’re proud of it—and I like the effect that movies have on people. But the attention can also make me uncomfortable. In certain situations, people say to me, “C’mon, what’s wrong with you?” I apologize. I love what I’m doing, but I’m a little uncomfortable.

Family Circus W Paolo Roversi
Holy bologna. “Family Circus” in W‘s December issue is my fairy tale dream come to life. Any time you ask Paolo Roversi to do his thing you can expect something incredible. The standard of this collaboration with stylist Alex White, though? Bananas. Go ahead, swoon over the ultra beauty of Lindsey Wixson, Arizona Muse, Anais Pouliot, and Britt Maren. View Post

Spellbound Alex Prager W Magazine
Alex Prager is turning into Steven Meisel right in front of our magazine flicks! For W’s “Spellbound” in the November issue, stylist Carolyn Tate Angel acts as a perfect sidekick to the film still-styled photographs. Among a perfect resort wear pull, the Versace peacoat and shorts photograph so beautifully. I am now all a-flutter over the smalltime talent of Irina Lazareanu, Liza Thorn, and Jessica Joffe.
