Kristen Stewart Strikes a French Magazine Pose

Actress frames Le Monde's Cannes Film Festival preview coverage, wearing Chanel.

Woody Allen was on the cover of last weekend’s edition of M: Le Magazine, a Saturday glossy insert put out by French newspaper Le Monde. This weekend, it’s the turn of his Cafe Society star Kristen Stewart.


The official cover is on the left. The provocative shot on the right is an outtake shared on social media by stylist Jean-Baptiste Talbourdet-Napoleone. The wardrobe for the cover is by Chanel; photos were taken by New York-based photographer Brianna Capozzi.

Stewart is set for a big Cannes Film Festival. In addition to the non-competition opener by Allen, she will be seen, applauded and-or booed in Olivier Assayas’ drama Personal Shopper, which is competing for the Palme D’Or. The actress also made news this week at the Refinery29 NewFront, where it was revealed that she will contribute to a 12-part short film series for the site, all directed by actresses and collectively titled ShatterBox Anthology. Coincidentally, the first entry in the series, made by Chloë Sevigny, will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. The installment by Stewart, titled Water, will mark her directorial debut.

Stewart also spoke this week in Hollywood at the Walk of Fame Star induction ceremony of Jodie Foster. The latter said she was thankful the honor was tied more to her films as a director than actress.
