Kristen Stewart Dresses In Drag For Elle

For the June issue of Elle magazine, Pouty McSulkystein Kristen Stewart did something unexpected. No, she didn’t smile, don’t be crazy — she posed as both a man and a woman, and she seduced herself.

It sounds odd — a little Terry Richardson, even — but it actually works, and the reason it works is that Stewart kills it in drag:

Right?

So, this makes me think about a few things. First of all, it makes me wonder why Stewart doesn’t embrace this side of herself more often, instead always looking like she’s squeezing out a painful shit by trying to conform to Hollywood’s expectations of a girly starlet. Also, it makes me feel a little sad that masculinity in women isn’t more embraced. I mean, look at Kristen as a dude — she looks hot!

Ah well. We have a long way to go before gender norms really start breaking down in Tinseltown. Here’s to Stewart for kind of getting the ball rolling.

    Oh God, she’s actually really hot as a man. Never thought I’d say that.

    When I saw her for the first time in Panic Room I actually couldn’t tell what gender she was, so no surprises here.

    I think she looks better as a guy, no joke.
