The rumors were true: Twilight stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar’s December issue. If anyone’s “sexy now,” we suppose it’s them (though we are not Twi-Hards). This reminds us of the time the magazine put Angelina Jolie on the newsstand cover even though she didn’t pose for photos for the magazine or speak to them for the story inside. Maybe drawing from Us Weekly’s best cover stars is the best way to sell fashion magazines these days. Unlike Angelina, Rob and Kristen did submit to interviews for the story and posed for an entire editorial in the magazine, in which they do everything they can with one another — writhe, grope, stare lustily — to fuel rumors about their “love nest,” or whatever it is the tabloids are fixated on this week.
Harper’s Bazaar wanted to make Kristen look “vampish and sexy” for the shoot — a “gothic romance” that’s still fashionable. She wears McQueen, Valentino, Yves St. Laurent, and Prada, among other labels. Meanwhile R-Patz loads up on Dior Homme, which looks damn good on him.
