“Look at a picture of me before I was 15. I am a boy. I wore my brother’s clothes, dude! Not like I cared that much, but I remember being made fun of because I wasn’t wearing Juicy jeans. I didn’t even think about it. I wore my gym clothes. But it’s not like I didn’t care that they made fun of me. It really bothered me. I remember this girl in sixth grade looked at me in gym and was like, ‘Oh my God! That’s disgusting — you don’t shave your legs!”
— Kristen Stewart may prefer jeans and dirty sneakers in her downtime, but when it comes to the glossy, highly coveted cover of a magazine, the “Twilight” actress sure does clean up nicely. Stewart is an unlikely style icon, a rare breed who grapples to stay true to herself even when inundated with ideas of what she’s supposed to be like. It seems that the 22-year-old actress has even come to embrace her cover-girl side, and she plays the glamorous part better than we could ever have imagined when she first emerged on the scene as a messy-haired tomboy, but who’s counting? The upcoming July issue of “Vanity Fair” features Stewart glamorized to the utmost point in Paris, photographed by Mario Testino in avant-garde fascinators and lush gowns. The cover alone has me wanting more, more, more — I’m fascinated by Kristen and her dichotomy of soft, sensitive femininity coupled with headstrong boyishness. [Vanity Fair]

Tanning Mom Patricia Krentcil has become one of the lucky few to score her own doll, but I kind of think they did a sloppy job. The doll’s tan looks accurate enough, but what’s with the navy pantsuit? It hides, not emphasizes her bronzed glow. The Tanning Mom I know and love would never approve. [Photo: INFDaily]
Stop the presses! The Olsen twins aren’t exactly identical at the moment. It seems that Mary-Kate decided to channel the dark side — of her hair, that is — by dyeing her typically blonde locks brown. The world is falling apart.
Lindsay Lohan is acting again! The “reformed” party girl was snapped on the set of her upcoming made-for-TV movie, “Liz & Dick” — about the relationship between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton — and, by the looks of it, she’s really giving the part her all.
