KRISTEN STEWART HAS GONE A LONG WAY SINCE HER TWILIGHT DAYS. FOR A FEW YEARS NOW, SHE HAS BEEN THE BRAND AMBASSADOR OF CHANEL. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT HER CAREER.

WHEN KRISTEN STEWART WAS ONLY 18 YEARS OLD, THE WHOLE WORLD WAS WACTHING HER. WE ALL GOT TO KNOW HER WITH THE CHARACTER OF ‘BELLA’ WHO WAS IN LOVE WITH THE HANDSOME VAMPIRE IN THE TWILIGHT SERIES. KRISTEN STEWART’S CAREER, DID NOT START WITH A YOUTH SERIES AND DID NOT END WITH IT. HER LATEST PROJECT IS SPENCER, A FILM WHICH WILL REVEAL THE ICONIC PRINCESS LADY DIANA. KRISTEN STEWART, IS ALSO THE BRAND AMBASSADOR OF CHANEL FASHION HOUSE SINCE 2013.

Kristen Stewart was born on April 9, 1990, in Los Angeles, California, to producer John Stewart, who worked for Fox, and the Australian script supervisor Jules Stewart. Stewart, who continued school until the seventh grade, was home schooled after that. Stewart, who started acting at the age of eight with the New Year’s theater play, got her first movie role in ‘The Thirteenth Year’, which was filmed for Disney Channel in 1999. Stewart appeared in a small role in ‘The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas’, and later played the manly daughter of a single, troubled mother in the independent film ‘The Safety of Objects’.

Stewart made her big break by starring in the Hollywood movie ‘Panic Room’ by David Fincher, as Jodie Foster’s diabetic daughter, Sarah. She received positive notes from critics, and the young actor’s path to fame began with this film. Although Stewart starred in ‘Cold Creek Manor’, a similar thriller following ‘The Panic Room’, the film did not obtain the expected box office success. Of course, this disappointment was not the end for Stewart, and although she continued her career with the movies ‘Catch That Kid’ and ‘Undertow’, the film that earned her praise again was the television movie ‘Talk to Me’, based on Laurie Halse Anderson’s novel. Stewart, who played the firstyear high school student Melinda Sordino, who cut off all her verbal communication after being raped at the age of 13, got all the positive criticism by successfully portraying this character with only a few speech lines.

In 2005, Stewart starred in ‘Zathura’, a fantasy adventure, in the following year in ‘Fierce People’, directed by Griffin Dunne, and later in the supernatural thriller ‘The Messengers’ with the character of Jess Solomon. In 2007, she was seen in the romantic drama ‘In The Land Of Women’, starring Adam Brody and Meg Ryan. Then, she appeared in the independent film ‘The Cake Eaters’ and the same year in Sean Penn’s critically acclaimed adaptation film ‘Into The Wild’.

 

MUSE OF LUXURY BRANDS

Kristen Stewart managed to become the face of the women’s perfume of Balenciaga Paris’ Florabotanica by attracting attention of luxury brands for the first time in 2012.

The Journey To The Top With Twilight

The young star’s life changed completely when the dates showed November 16, 2007, when Summit Entertainment announced that Kristen Stewart would play Bella Swan in ‘Twilight’, a movie based on Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling vampire novel. The process began with director Catherine Hardwicke’s visit to Stewart. She was literally fascinated by the young actress. ‘Twilight’, the first film in the series, obtained a $ 392 million box office revenue, despite its $ 37 million budget. And the movie received the young actress award as well as awards in a total of eight different categories at the MTV Movie Awards, Teen Choice Awards, Screem Awards and People’s Choice Awards. ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’, the second of the series that was released in 2009, achieved almost twice the success of the first movie with a total box office gross of $ 50 million. Although ‘New Moon’ won Stewart a number of awards, including the MTV Movie Awards and the BAFTA Awards, it could not prevent her from winning the worst couple award with her co-star Robert Pattinson at the Golden Raspberry Awards. In 2010, Stewart appeared in ‘The Runaways’, ‘Welcome to the Rileys’ and ‘Eclipse’, the third film of the Twilight Series. ‘Eclipse’ became the movie that set a box office record on the first by being released at the same time at 4,416 movie theaters.
