Kristen Stewart appears on the cover of InStyle US’ November 2020 issue. Lensed by photographer Olivia Malone, the American actress sports a red number from Christopher John Rogers for the delightful newsstand cover (above) and strikes a pose under clear blue skies in Michael Kors Collection for the digital edition (below).
For the cover story named ‘’The Optimist’’, styled by Rebecca Ramsey, Kristen models looks by Brandon Maxwell, Bottega Veneta, Proenza Schouler and, of course, Chanel.
Clea DuVall, who directed Stewart in the upcoming film ‘’Happiest Season’’, interviewed the actor via Zoom. The two talk about everything from quarantine pastimes to practicing Princess Diana’s accent to being a ‘’frustrated optimist’’ – someone who still believes that the state of the world ‘’can’t be as bad as this’’, per Stewart.

The face of Chanel then touches on why she’s drawn to playing queer characters: ‘’By default, I represent what I stand for. I do think it’s important that we step into different roles and into other people’s shoes in order to really expand ourselves, albeit not ever taking up space for people who should be telling their own stories’’.
Stewart even mentions her changing lockdown uniform – at times, it meant putting on real outfits as if she had somewhere to go, while at others, it meant wearing sets. ‘’There was a period of time when I only wanted to wear shit that was matching’’, she told DuVall. ‘’I have a leopard-print suit thing that is really fun to wear around the house’’.
