Yeah, did you know that Kristen Stewart landed a new job? It’s actually kind of a big deal: Kristen is the new face of Balenciaga perfume! She’s going to be a fashion girl, you guys! We’re going to given lots of new photos of Kristen modelling and biting her lip and being incapable of showing emotion on her face, and it’s going to be so pretty.
The news of Kristen’s new job with Balenciaga came out in January, and this is what she had to say at the time:
“I love Balenciaga fashion because it is incredibly bold and forceful, yet feminine and sexy,” Kristen said in a statement. “I found there was a real creative freedom in this project. I feel blessed and really proud to be the face of this new fragrance.”
But right now, Kristen is over in Paris for their Fashion Week, taking care of some business obligations and going to fashion shows and the like, and, judging by these pictures, she doesn’t look too blessed, huh? She looks, dare I say, sullen? Gloomy? In serious pain? So really, no different than usual, I guess.
And, you know, I really don’t want to pick on Kristen too much for this, because I know how it feels, sort of. See, when I’m out and about, where I’m around new people and new sounds and new things to take in, sometimes I can get overwhelmed or caught up in something, and sometimes I can lose myself a little bit. Pretty much every single time I’m out in public with someone, that someone always says something along the lines of “wow, you look like you’re miserable,” or “are you having any fun at all?” And it’s like “shut up, I’m having fun, I’m just not incredibly socialized and there are lots of bright lights and so many things to look at because I’m not in my bedroom!” It’s always really frustrating. What am I supposed to do, smile literally all of the time?
The difference is, Kristen has this great big sourpuss look on while she’s working. She’s trying to make a good impression, in theory, and that constant pout isn’t doing doing her any favors. It’s probably even more detrimental to her career than the fact that she’s an actress who can’t act, and that’s saying something.
Check out these photos of Kristen working in Paris, and let me know if you can see any emotion in there, all right? Oh, and remember that “awkward” and “forced smirk” don’t count as emotions.
