Kristen Stewart: I Was Teased for Not Shaving My Legs

Kristen Stewart Vanity Fair
Mario Testino for Vanity Fair

Kristen Stewart isn’t the first person you’d think of to be modeling haute couture gowns in Paris, but she pulls it off — quite well, in fact — in the new issue of Vanity Fair.

In the spread, shot in the City of Light by famed photographer Mario Testino, the Snow White and the Huntsman actress wears Jean Paul Gaultier corsets and Fabergé diamonds and emeralds, among other fabulous fashion finds.

“Usually it’s hard to wear stuff like this, but in this [shoot] I felt so completely in the clothes. I felt like I knew them,” she explains in a behind-the-scenes video. “If you don’t have a connection to what you’re wearing, it sort of looks like it’s wearing you. I never got that feeling on this.”

Lately, the actress — who usually prefers sneakers to stilettos — has been stepping up her fashion game, wearing designers like Louis Vuitton and Marchesa on the red carpet. However, Stewart is the first to admit that this wasn’t something she saw herself doing when she was younger. “Look at a picture of me before I was 15. I am a boy. I wore my brother’s clothes, dude!” she reveals. “I didn’t even think about it. I wore my gym clothes.”

She also admits that she used to be mocked because of her grooming habits. “I remember this girl in sixth grade looked at me in gym and was like, ‘Oh my God! That’s disgusting — you don’t shave your legs!'” she recalls.

Well surely, the talented and fashionable star has come a long way since sixth grade.

Pick up the July issue of Vanity Fair — on newsstands next week — to read more of the revealing interview.
