Gripping Twilight angst aside, it sure is nice to see Kristen Stewart smile.
The actress flashed a megawatt grin while on the way into her hotel today in Paris, begging the question...
Did she know she was being photographed?
We kid. Obviously Stewart couldn't miss the madness, but this time she didn't let the shutterbug infestation dampen her spirits.
The On the Road star landed in France on Monday to take in the sights of Paris Fashion Week. She got started Tuesday in the front row at Chanel, where she looked as chic as any runway model in a fitted white jacket with retro-short sleeves, black short-shorts and fingerless black leather gloves that revealed her new tattoos.
Stewart was back in her usual uniform of glasses, jeans, t-shirt and casual outerwear today, but she showed no signs of jet lag or any other annoyance as a bodyguard escorted her past the waiting crowd and into her hotel.
The 23-year-old actress has lined up two movies this summer, the Guantanamo Bay-set prison drama Camp X-Ray and Sils Maria, which is going to be shooting in Europe.
"I play a personal assistant to an actress," Stewart explained to Women's Wear Daily at the Chanel show. "It takes two very particular people to have that relationship be functional—one that services the other—because Juliette Binoche is playing the actress that I assist, and she is one of the most powerful women I think I've ever seen in film.
"I'm going to try desperately to not be squashed by a woman like that, and it's not going to be an easy thing."
Her costars in Sils Maria, which takes its name from a Swiss municipality, also include Chloe Grace Moretz and Pattinson's good pal Tom Sturridge.
Speaking of Stewart's ex back in the States, a rep for Elvis Presley's granddaughter Riley Keough has debunked rumors that the model-actress is dating Pattinson. We're told that Rob is "in a good place" and "just enjoying hanging and chilling with friends at this point in his life."
