Elle Magazine, which is in the tradition of keeping its cover star under wraps until the issue has been released, has decided to make an exception for none other than Twilight's Kristen Stewart.
The U.K. edition of Elle Magazine has revealed Kristen Stewart as their new cover girl, in response to her impressive fan base. Rumors had surfaced regarding who might land the latest front cover of the magazine and now, after attempting to put up a battle to guard their secret, the magazine has finally caved.
"After much speculation on Twitter and Facebook surrounding the identity of tomorrow's cover shoot star in LA we have decided to reveal the identity of the ELLE cover star in advance," the magazine said in its statement.
"We're breaking with tradition and magazine protocol to reveal our cover star in advance because she has such a huge social network following and fan base we want to be the ones to break the news first" ELLE Editor-in-Chief Lorraine Candy said.
The magazine has also attempted to use Stewart's large fan base to their favor. Instead of keeping tradition, the magazine has done a complete 180 and will offer minute by minute details of the shoot instead.
"We'll be giving readers a digital exclusive and reporting from inside the studio as we shoot," the magazine revealed. "Kristen is such an amazing ELLE cover star I want to make sure we don't disappoint readers who have to wait to see the whole shoot in our June issue out on May 2nd."
Those fans looking to get in on the action will be able to use social media in order to connect with the U.K. magazine.
"Readers will be able to follow the action minute by minute at the studio live on Twitter through @ELLEuk and Facebook."
