Prepare for a Kristen Stewart takeover!!

The American Ultra starlet isn’t just making waves on Chanel‘s runway, but in the August issue of Marie Claire, too!

Rocking a pale blue sequined sweater on the cover, she unleashed her usual smolder, but it’s her romantic meets gothic spread which had our full attention!

We adore the dark lace and talon-esque baubles! So fierce!!

Kind of like how Kristen described with the interviewer:

“I lit my universe on fire and I watched it burn… Speaking very candidly, it was a really traumatic period in my early 20s that kick-started something in me that was a bit more feral.”

Wow. Such strong wording, but it definitely drives the point home!

As for the rest of her accompanying interview?? Read on for the HIGHlights…

On reaching peace with her public image: “I’m really proud that I am able to move forward and not fall into every mental crater. That’s a new thing for me. Age has made me smarter and calmer. And it is f*cking awesome.” On apologizing: “Lately, I’ve been doing less of the ‘I’m sooooo sorry.’ And more of the ‘No. F*ck. Jesus.'”

On the best advice she’s received: “Patti Smith told me to always take care of my teeth and lungs.”

On her success at a young age: “Between ages 15 and 20, it was really intense. I was constantly anxious. I was kind of a control freak. If I didn’t know how something was going to turn out, I would make myself ill, or just be locked up or inhibited in a way that was really debilitating.”

On her appearance and cutting her hair: “My hair was such a crutch. I looked quote unquote ‘sexy’ no matter what. I could hide behind it. As soon as I didn’t have all that hair, I had to let my face hang out. I felt more confident than I had in a really long time. And it felt really good. Maybe to most people long hair is prettier. But then what? Is your main goal in life to be desired? That is boring as f*ck.”

This is the Kristen we love to see!

Keep doing you, girl! Now go and ch-ch-check out the rest of the spread in the gallery (above)!
