Twilight star Kristen Stewart is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of W magazine and homegirl looks COMPLETELY unrecognizable in all of her photos. Except for a few trademark poses that give K. Stew away, her look really is totally transformed. In her coverstory interview, Kristen reveals that her pretend wedding in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 was the first wedding she had ever been to. Honestly, the interview is kinda … meh. But the photos, wow, they are MUST see. Check ‘em out below.
She’s joked about the tight security surrounding the filming of the much buzzed-about wedding scene in Breaking Dawn Part 1, but Kristen Stewart says being a part of the actual experience was more dramatic (and fun!) than she expected. “This was my first wedding. It was insane. And odd,” she tells W magazine. “The wedding dress experience was a huge deal. I tried on one version of the dress, and it was like tweak and tweak and alter and tweak and change, and then it’s done,” she explains of the Carolina Herrera creation she wears. “Huge deal.” But choosing the wedding dress wasn’t the only major life experience she tackled while filming the series. “For me, it was ridiculously dramatic,” she says of the Breaking Dawn movies themselves. “I get married, give birth, the baby has an incredibly accelerated growth rate we’re all very concerned about, and I say goodbye to my dad for the last time ever. It was all big — I could never go, Whew, I’m losing this character.” And that also meant she had trouble saying goodbye to Bella in the end. “I’d been anticipating that end-of-Bella moment. I was going, Oh, my God — I wonder how I’m going to feel,” she recalls. But it didn’t truly hit her until the very end, after the wedding was just a memory. “We needed to film one more sort of honeymoon scene and we went to the Virgin Islands,” she says. “After that scene, my true final scene, I felt like I could shoot up into the night sky and every pore of my body would shoot light. I felt lighter than I’ve ever felt in my life.”
I mean … these photos are beautiful. I love the middle black and white photo most … she looks completely different. Very Brigitte Bardo. I might have to pick up this issue just to see the rest of the photos … they’re too good to pass up. Incidentally, August 13 — tomorrow — is Bella Swan and Edward Cullen‘s wedding day in Breaking Dawn. Isn’t that … fitting? As for these photos … what do YOU think?
