It all started with Twilight. Who could predict the pale Gothic look would be such a hit with young girls? The pop culture film catapulted Kristen Stewart into the Hollywood universe. She portrayed Bella Swan, the angst-ridden ingénue romanced by a hunky vampire. Still, something in the film captured the hearts of American teens and legions of young followers have dedicated their fashion lives to imitating Kristen’s impulsive and uniquely casual everyday look which contradicts the typical mainstream. It’s a look that essentially made all the good girls eat their heart out.
Comic-Con, held at the Jacob Javitts Center has been gaining popularity every year! It truly is an event where fantasy meets fashion. For the devotees of animation, comic books and superhero culture, this is the place to be. Kristen Stewart, Sean Astin, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Tom Felton of Harry Potter fame were just some of the famous faces spotted within the crowd of over 110,00 thousand people.
Comic Con is the largest pop-culture event on the East Coast, hosting the latest in comics, graphic novels, anime, video games and so much more. It spans all age ranges with the bulk following to be tweens to late 30's and older. The fans come dressed as their favorite characters, some in ready-made costumes and others devoting much time & creativity into their look. Fashion school students interviewed took it to a new extreme of style and quality.
Patti Smith, the Bohemian Queen, is adapting her memoir, Just Kids for the big screen. The book was released two-years ago and there’s been nothing but buzz about the roles of Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe (Smith’s partner) since the project was first announced.
Apparently, Ms. Smith has a pair of leads in mind and her choices might just surprise you – Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. But, don’t judge, her reasoning is pretty spot on. Stewart is "not conventionally beautiful," and Pattinson is "a bit shy, and a bit stoic."
So, who else is in the running? She mentions Mia Wasikowska, and even suggests Saoirse Ronan. As for Mapplethorpe, we think James Franco could be a sweet match.

Two-months after news broke that Kristen Stewart cheated on her hearthrob boyfriend of three-years Robert Pattinson, the couple are reportedly back together. Just like Edward and Bella, the couple might just have what it takes to have eternal love just like their on-screen characters.
When Pattinson finally started accepting Stewarts calls, he started to change his tune, according to Us weekly reports. "He started thinking nobody else would understand his life," his rational voice told him not to toss a three-year relationship for one infidelity." "They have a very deep connection," explained a source.

The last two weeks have been pretty hard on Kristen Stewart. Not only has she been branded a "homewrecker" but she has been personally attacked by Twilight fans who are upset she cheated on their beloved Rob Pattinson with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders.
She has been the most talked about celeb and not in a good way. The tables, however, might be turning around for KStew, who recently beat actress Jennifer Lawrence for the role of Peyton Loftis, in the movie "Lie Down in Darkness."
The movie is an adaptation of the novel of the same name by William Styron.
At least something is looking up for her!
In light of the recent backlash of the Kristen Stewart/Rupert Sanders cheating scandal, you would think the world was made up of a bunch of perfect saints who have never done so much as blurt a swear word. All it takes is a glimpse at the tabloids and their subsequent reader comments to realize that people are on one of the biggest hypocritical, self-righteous rampages ever. Before I go further I'd like to say that I am not a Kristen Stewart fan. In fact, she is one of the few actresses that actually bugs the shit out of me. Her blasé, 'too cool for the world' image and borderline constipated acting makes me want to rip my eyes out. Worse, she comes of as spoiled and ungrateful, as in her most recent July 2012 interview with Elle where she ironically expressed, "I feel boring. I feel like, Why is everything so easy for me? I can't wait for something crazy to f---ing happen to me. Just life. I want someone to f--- me over! Do you know what I mean?"
Liberty Ross, 33, the stunning model who has been married to director Rupert Sanders for 10 years, has had one hell of a week. She found out her husband had an illicit affair with his Snow White and The Huntsman star, Kirsten Stewart. One of the many issues with that is, Stewart has been in a public relationship with her Twilight on-screen love Robert Pattinson. The news has hit fans hard and is hard to believe since the duo are frequently spotted together and looking very happy.
Ross, the poor wife in this huge mess, who has two children with the director, opened up only recently to YOU Magazine about her marriage with Sanders, and admitted challenges. In the interview, Ross said that moving from London to Los Angeles as her husband worked on his Hollywood directing career was "isolating." She admitted, "I romanticized domesticity for a while, and loved having a shopping list of groceries stuck to the fridge for the first time," Ross said. "But moving here and starting a life all over again was a lot harder than I had anticipated. I just didn’t think it would be as isolating and daunting as it turned out to be."We hope that Robert and Liberty and her children find solace and peace throughout this very sad ordeal.
Celebrities, they're just like us! Well, not really. Outside the money and fame they do have to deal with the scathing opinions of the general public. Especially on Twitter, where haters can directly spew venom with the ease of the @ symbol, many times anonymously. (We can't even imagine the heat Kristen Stewart is getting from Twihards in light of her sordid affair!)
