News broke in December that Kristen Stewart would be the face of Chanel's Paris-Dallas collection campaign, and now we have the first look at the Twilight star modeling the edgy designs.
Judging from the new video, the rebellious couture looks clearly suit Kristen's tomboy style to a tee, and the A-lister looks completely comfortable rocking corn rows and dramatic winged black eyeliner.
"I've had a budding relationship with Chanel and Karl since I was quite young," Kristen tells Grazia Daily. "The first time I wore Chanel was in 2007 at the Into the Wild premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, then at my first Met Ball experience, the Baftas … It always felt like a privilege to wear Chanel and to be around Karl who is an artist that, for me, constantly inspires."
And how does she feel about landing such a coveted endorsement?
"Typically I wouldn’t see myself as being the quintessential face of Chanel with the pearls and the classics but I liked stepping into that role and this suits me a little bit more than past collections because it is very American," she says. "I can't use the word bad-ass but there is something about it that is fun ... fierce."
She also calls legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld one of "the greatest artists of our time.”
"The only intimidating thing about him really is that scary unapproachable facade which is something people project onto him I think. Because when you meet him or you have the opportunity to watch him work, or in my case 'work with him,' he is so awesome," she dishes about the notoriously stoic Chanel designer. " ... Basically and obviously, he is so much more than a fashion designer; he is a true renaissance man, one of the greatest artists of our time."
