Another Snow White Premiere

A New Confident and Singular Kristen Stewart
An Earlier Premiere

Liberty Ross has made it clear that she wants to shine, to take fashion center stage at the premieres. This is also a resonance from Snow White. Just as the movie Black Swan resonates with Snow White. The jealousy and fury of aging beauty being replaced.
In the Haute Couture world of women there is a comraderie with a bedrock of competitiveness. Women dress for women. They observe each other, notice every flaw, every sign of aging. It is a merciless world that ruthlessly pits beautiful women against each other in socially acceptable ways. 

Kristen has said Oh no, I'm not gonna play that game.

Kristen becomes androgynous


the most refined form of sexual attractiveness (as well as the most refined form of sexual pleasure) consists in going against the grain of one's sex. What is most beautiful in virile men is something feminine; what is most beautiful in feminine women is something masculine.

Of course he is sexually attracted to her. And any woman knows when a man is sexually attracted to them. It happens every day. You always know. So yes, Kristen knew. So fucking what! Rain Makes Applesauce to quote a children's book from the 1960's.
The sun came up today.
What else is new.

The camera loves Stewart to such a degree that, after her first few Wild scenes, I started suspecting she probably could have given Lillian Gish or Greta Garbo a run for their money during the Silent’s heyday some eighty-odd years ago as, to misquote Norma Desmond, “They had faces then.”As Tracy, Stewart’s beautiful, unguarded visage manages to convey both freshness and world-weariness, allowing the talented newcomer to project something akin to a jaded purity, which I’ve never seen on screen before.A lovely review of Kristen Stewart in Into The Wild and the entire review is here:  http://littleblogtoo.blogspot....
