Kristen Stewart has become somewhat of an unwilling fashion plate in the past few years, what with her red carpet ubiquity and relationship with Balenciaga, but I don’t always agree with her sartorial choices. She’s never photographed off-duty in anything but Converse, jeans, and a T-shirt, so I often find her event looks kind of contrived given that she seems so uncomfortable, like she has no idea why she’s where she is, wearing whatever she’s wearing. I will give her credit, though: she actually cracked a smile at this week’s LA screening of “Snow White And The Huntsman,” no small feat for a girl who usually looks like she’s about to cry. Nevertheless, I feel terribly ambivalent about the Stella McCartney ensemble she went for. A high, buttoned neck like this is flattering on next to nobody, but I think it could have worked on Kristen had she skipped the stuffy jacket. She looked fabulous at all of her Cannes appearances and while I prefer to see her in those opulent dresses with her hair down, this is probably the kind of outfit she feels more “herself” in, and I can’t argue with that. What do you think: is Kristen rocking this buttoned-up, slightly androgynous look?

I first realized that Charlize Theron would be the perfect Evil Queen from “Snow White” when I saw her in “Young Adult.” Wildly different movies in every way, no doubt, but the main takeaway? Theron knows how to play a vile bitch with such delicious and riveting energy that you almost root for her. And Queen Ravenna in the upcoming “Snow White and the Huntsman” (opening this weekend!) is as detestably evil as they come. The film is already getting good reviews from outlets like New York mag and I wouldn’t be surprised if Theron was recognized come awards season. Check out our three interviews with the actress above!

We’re so psyched for the upcoming premiere of “Snow White and the Huntsman,” starring Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron, opening June 1. and in this series of interviews, K-Stew tells The Frisky what drew her to the role in the first place, in particular Snow White’s caretaking nature and connection to the earth. She also hints at a serious sexual chemistry between her character and the Huntsman, played by the drool-worthy Chris Hemsworth. Hmm, was that in the original fairy tale? Check out the three interviews with Kristen above! Keep reading »
Pardon me, but I must have been so focused on Chris Hemsworth’s presence in the upcoming film “Snow White and the Huntsman,” that I failed to notice that the movie has a second hot dude worth drooling over. Meet dreamy British actor Sam Claflin, who plays Prince William in the film. He is engaged to the lovely lady on the left, actress Laura Haddock, and they seem really adorable — she read the part of Snow White when he rehearsed in bed. Check out our red carpet interview with Sam above! Keep reading »
