The model-of-the-moment is the cover star of our first ever Beauty Issue
Stella Maxwell – Victoria’s Secret model, Max Factor ambassador and Miley Cyrus’s ex – is the star of our first ever Big Beauty Issue, on sale today. But when we interviewed the model-of-the-moment, her current girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, also tagged along for the ride.
Indeed, the 27-year-old insisted that her actress partner sat next to her for the interview – something she quickly had second thoughts about…
Stella: ‘Babe you’re making me nervous now.’
Kristen: ‘I’m telling you, I’m not fucking listening.’ Stella: ‘She’s like, “She sounds so stupid.”’
Kristen: ‘Go for it. I can’t hear shit.’

Ever since her relationship with her Twilight series co-star Robert Pattinson came to a very public end in 2012, when she cheated on him with Snow White director Rupert Sanders, Kristen has remained tight-lipped about her relationships, even though she has gone on to date numerous women, including Cara Delevingne’s ex St Vincent.
Although the couple are notoriously private, Stella does open up to us about what it’s like dating such a famous person, with so much interest in them as a couple (in between sharing a piece of toast and browsing a website of rescue dogs to adopt, that is...)
‘I don’t look at the scrutiny of me like that,’ she says of her high-profile romance. ‘I don’t really feel that’s the situation. I see it like: I’ve been working really hard for a long time and I’ve accomplished a lot of what I’ve wanted to professionally. I’ve been really blessed and that’s all I look at.’
Elsewhere in the interview, Stella talks about her career as a model, how she handles being an influencer and the power of social media.
‘It’s obviously a glamorous job, and you can reach out to a lot of people within seconds through Instagram or Twitter or Snapchat,’ she says. ‘It doesn’t have to be something very serious. I think it’s just giving insight into your life a little bit, and if they’re interested, they’re going to look at it.’
