Dear fans of Kristen Stewart concerned her cheating scandal has changed her irrevocably: I’m happy to report that she’s still got it. And by “it,” I of course mean “the ability to mold her face into that same expression of blank concern we’ve come to know so well.”

On the cover of October’s Vogue UK, K-Stew can be seen rocking K-Stew face like nothing ever happened, as well as a resplendent green Gucci dress. While it’s easy to believe the fashion world simply likes her because she’s young, thin and pretty, I think it has more to do with what a complete natural she is at that lobotomized/disaffected/stoned expression that most models have to spend years practicing in the mirror in order to perfect.

Of course, she doesn’t talk about her break-up and subsequent public crucifixion, but she does discuss how weird it is to be constantly stalked by the paparazzi, just in case anyone’s still laboring under the assumption that Kristen Stewart enjoys that particular aspect of her job:

“People expect it to be easy because there you are, out there, doing the thing that you want and making lots of money out of it. But, you know, I’m not that smooth. I can get clumsy around certain people. Like if I were to sit down and think, ‘OK, I’m really famous, how am I going to conduct myself in public?’ I wouldn’t know who that person would be! It would be a lot easier if I could, but I can’t.”

She also says something about the Beat Generation (in reference to her role in On The Road) that makes it sound like we won’t see her in a major Hollywood production for a while:

“There is always going to be that seam of people who want things differently to the standardised version. It’s not necessarily a rebellious thing, it’s just who they are. That world back then, it just seems freer to me than anything I could ever touch and I’m fully nostalgic for it, even though I wasn’t even alive then. It’s the loyalty aspect of it all. I love being on the periphery with a group of people who have the same values that I do. People who don’t get off on fame, who just like the process of making movies and thrive.”

This just adds more fuel to the speculative fire that this whole thing was orchestrated to free K-Stew from the shackles of mainstream movie stardom. While she doesn’t really seem like she has the initiative to do something like that (to borrow a phrase from Girls, there’s no app for it on her iPhone), I’ll be pretty impressed with the whole charade if it comes out that she actually did. Don’t hate the player, hate the game, etc.
