The October 2012 issue of British Vogue with Stewart on the cover will arrive on newsstands in mid-September.

Stewart is scheduled to attend the film premiere for "On The Road" at Toronto International Film Festival on Thursday, Sept. 6.
The 22-year-old was photographed by famed fashion photographer Mario Testino wearing a floral print ruffle-trim Gucci dress with a low neckline.
In the interview, she discusses her discomfort with fame, "playing it cool" while in the public eye and dying her hair blonde for the character Marylou in the movie "On The Road."
The "Twilight" star discussed her discomfort with fame and being in the public eye.
"I know if you haven't thought about how you want to present a very packaged idea of yourself then it can seem like you lack ambition. But, dude, honestly? I can't. People expect it to be easy because there you are, out there, doing the thing that you want and making lots of money out of it. But, you know, I'm not that smooth. I can get clumsy around certain people."
"Like if I were to sit down and think, 'OK, I'm really famous, how am I going to conduct myself in public?' I wouldn't know who that person would be! It would be a lot easier if I could, but I can't know if you haven't thought about how you want to present a very packaged idea of yourself then it can seem like you lack ambition," she added.
Kristen shared how and why she relates to her character Marylou, a free spirit that sleeps with two during the Beat generation.
"There is always going to be that seam of people who want things differently to the standardized version. It's not necessarily a rebellious thing, it's just who they are. That world back then, it just seems freer to me than anything I could ever touch and I'm fully nostalgic for it, even though I wasn't even alive then. It's the loyalty aspect of it all. I love being on the periphery with a group of people who have the same values that I do. People who don't get off on fame, who just like the process of making movies and thrive."
The 22-year-old discussed how she felt about dying her hair blonde for the role.
"I feel like my whole body rejects it, but it was really important for the character. It was like learning an accent!"
"On The Road" will arrive in US theaters on December 21, 2012.
"Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn- Part 2" will arrive in theaters on November 16.
