iVillage Woman of the Week: Kristen Stewart

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse star deserves some recognition for her extreme fan appeal and her unique approach to stardom

Each week, we pick one woman who's done something to make us proud. This week we're loving Kristen Stewart for staying true to herself while handling the craziness of the Twilight phenomenon.

The Twi-Hard fandemonium has been steadily building over the last month in anticipation of the June 30 release of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. The fever culminated with Thursday night's L.A. premiere, where all the film's stars showed up to celebrate the third installment.

While we love to tease K-Stew about her grumpy attidude, we have to admit we can see her appeal. She's never shy about her disdain for the paparazzi (and personal questions!), but she always manages a smile for her fans. On Thursday's red carpet, Stewart graciously greeted her admirers, signed autographs and snapped photos. But, true to form, she didn't get too caught up in the glamour. The first chance she got, she threw on her signature jeans and hoodie. After all, she'll be the first one to tell you, she's just a normal girl.

While we think Stewart could benefit from a few lessons on public appearances, we've got to give her credit. She takes her own approach to Hollywood -- and so far it's paying off in a big way.

Which female celeb are you loving this week? Chime in below!
