Kristen Stewart. From Bella to Swan.
To many of us Kristen Stewart is known for her creation in the „Twilight“ series. Her role as Bella Swan, a teenage student and a vampire’s girlfriend, got her recognition all around the world. But Kristen is not only some teenage celebrity with screaming fans wherever she goes, she’s also one of the most talented young actresses in Hollywood with many roles to prove that.
Kristen Stewart is a 20-year-old Californian girl, who with support of her parents (both in a film business) started to act at the age of nine. Her first bigger role came in 2002, when she’s accompanied Jodie Foster in the famous „Panic Room“. Later on she was seen as Lucy Hardwicke in „In the land of women“ , as Tracy in „Into the wild“ and finally in „The Cake Eaters“ as Georgia, a 15-year-old girl with a terminal illness. In this last role Stewart showed that she’s one of those actresses to watch closely. I was truly moved by her creation, full of pain but also willingness to love and be loved.
When in 2008 she first put on Bella’s clothes to play a part in the „Twilight“ movie, from a one time small movie actress she became immediately a big movie star. Wherever she went, she would meet screaming fans and paparazzi following her. To be honest I thought that the role of Bella Swan would make Kristen Stewart stop being a small-but-ambitious movie actress but positively she’s proved me wrong and we could have seen her in „Adventureland“ back in 2008 and this year she's made another progress and played a singer Joan Jett in „The Runaways“, where she didn't only act but sang as well! Last month Kristen turned 20 and with three more Twilight movies to premiere („Breaking down“ is going to be divided into two separate films) it looks like her career cannot be in the better place.
As Kristen acting skills evolved, her style did the same. In her everyday life, Kristen is seen with her inseparable Ray Ban wayfarers, converse shoes, jeans and a T-shirt or a flannel shirt. She has this cool, casual style that suits her perfectly. The red carpet looks are though a completely different story. With every event and premiere she seems to look better and more fashionable. It probably happened thanks to Tara Swennen, who’s become actress‘ stylist at the end of last year. Swennen managed to combine Kristen’s edgy and old-school style with a bit of glamour. Let’s just look at her LA „New Moon“ premiere back in November 2009, when she’s worn a fabulous Oscar de la Renta gown.
Last February at the Baftas, young actress was presented with an Orange Rising Star Award. She’s also appeared at this year’s Oscars, where she was one of the presenters. Kristen wore an amazing Monique L'Hullier gown and while she was standing on the podium at the Kodak Theater I had a feeling that she’ll be back there receiving an Academy Award very soon.
