Cover shoots are exhilarating. What with all the clothes, beauty products, the smell of hairspray in the air, and, of course, our cover girl, it’s a wild ride from beginning to end. For our September Issue, we ventured out of the steamy canons of New York City to the City of Angels and took over an architectural dream home with Kristen Stewart. There, as the sun worked its way across the sky and highlighted a table full of beauty products (including new Clinique goods), we got to see a different side of our cover star. Who can blame her? We'd act the same if we were decked out in all that Chanel, too—oh, that Chanel. All of our goals were achieved here. All. Of. Them.
