The Daily Grind Video

Kristen Stewart has always been known as somewhat of an awkward turtle, but she doesn’t care. And now, she’s owning her traits and putting that energy into a unique cover spread for ELLE magazine’s September issue.

The Twilight actress dares to be different in a photoshoot that centers on an adventure through a local grocery store. From the peanut butter aisle to the juices and sodas, it seems like your regular day at the supermarket – except Kristen is decked out in Chanel.

On the cover, KStew shows off those dazzling eyes that made Bella Swan mesmerizing, while around her neck, she’s anchored down by a plethora of Chanel lock jewelry. Reminiscent of the Chanel Fall/Winter 2014 fashion show that also took place in a grocery store, Kristen plays around in vibrant and athletic-inspired hoodies, leggings, and platform sneakers in her spread.

In the accompanying interview, the 24-year-old reflects on her place in the industry. Before Kristen hit it big, she was a child star who had done a number of movies with big stars like Jodie Foster. But even from early on, she never planned out where her career would go:

“Never at any point have I sat down and plotted how I should proceed from here on. As soon as you start thinking about your career as a trajectory—like, as if you’re going to miss out on some wave or momentum—then you’re never doing anything for yourself anyway. Then you’re truly, actually, specifically working for the public. You’re turning yourself into a bag of chips.”

The Twilight saga was a hit blockbuster series that swept away many teenage fans and vampire-lovers. But Kristen wasn’t always aware of how big the saga was.

“The day the movie came out there was a picture of me—in the New York Post, I think. I was sitting on my front porch, smoking a pipe with my ex-boyfriend and dog. And I was like, Oh shit, well, I have to be aware of that.”

But she isn’t about pleasing everyone. Kristen has been known to flash her middle finger at paparazzi.

“Now I feel like if I smiled for a paparazzi photo—not that I ever would—that’s exactly what people would be desecrating me for. They’d be like, ‘now you’re going to give it up, now you’re a sellout.’ like, okay. What do you want? What would you like?”

For the full interview, the September issue will hit stands August 19. In the meantime, check out Kristen Stewart’s couture cover and shoot in ELLE here.
