Chanel names Kristen as the new face of ‘Collection Eyes 2016’


Shot by Mario Testino

WWD : Chanel has named Kristen Stewart the face of its makeup collection.

The actress will appear in a campaign called Collection Eyes 2016, which was photographed by Mario Testino and is to break in March.

Stewart posed for a series of portraits that incarnate the different facets of a contemporary woman, according to Chanel.

Stewart is no stranger to the house. In 2013, she fronted the advertising for the Métiers d’Art Paris-Dallas collection. She also starred in the short film “Once and Forever,” lensed by Karl Lagerfeld for the Métiers d’Art fashion show in Rome last December.

Chanel Métiers d’Arts Paris-Rome Fashion Show – Interviews


Chanel News

wwd.com : Stewart, dressed in a sparkly silver jacket and wide-leg leather pants, marveled that Lagerfeld always manages to deliver “what resonates emotionally with people,” in this case the bewitching beauty and charm of Paris, perhaps even more ravishing when drained of color, as it was in Lagerfeld’s set.

The actress is filming “Personal Shopper” in the French capital. “There’s a cinematic culture in Paris that doesn’t exist anywhere else,” she said.

InStyle : At the finale of the show, the set then transformed as shop doors opened, and waiters appeared with plates of pasta and cheese, oysters, and endless desserts. I found Kristen Stewart near a pizzeria, gamely fielding questions on her performance as an actor cast to portray the young Coco Chanel in a biopic. She had no time to prepare for the role, and had to trust Lagerfeld’s instincts, since he improvised the script even while filming.

“I like being able to follow somebody who takes risks and doesn’t need to plan everything and buries these little gems in order to find them later and surprise yourself, so following him, I didn’t feel in a precarious situation at all,” she said. “I felt the way I wanted to feel – a little tipped on the edge, at all times.”

NYTimes : Ms. Stewart, now a veteran of the Chanel scene (she has been working with Mr. Lagerfeld since 2013), was at pains to stress that art did not always imitate life, as hordes of excitable editors and clients played their parts by sampling treats at the oyster bar, ice cream stands and fully functioning bakery.

“I can assure you the food is never, ever this good on real movie sets,” she said, adding that she had just taken a cooking lesson, part of her own Roman holiday from a current filming schedule in Paris.

“But this is Karl, and with the world of Chanel, he creates his own rules when he wants to celebrate something,” Ms. Stewart said. “I’ve learned so much from working repeatedly with someone with such an intense attraction to fantasy, and to risk.”

“He’s a true visionary, mainly because of his uncanny ability to read the times and moods that change them,” she said. “Who knows what he will do next?”

Karl and Kristen and Coco (and me) – Bazzar US Article


Article by Laura Brown

Bazaar US : The call came early—4 A.M., in fact. Out of the sensory blur came the tinkling French accent of a photo producer who works with Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel. “Karl is making a movie,” she said. “And he would love you to be in it. Playing a journalist. You’d need to get on a flight to Paris tonight and go straight to set tomorrow morning. What do you think?”

Um, let me think about that, oui. Like I wouldn’t. Like anyone wouldn’t. Having had the privilege of relatively recent entry into Karl’s orbit, I’d quite honestly fly to Paris to clean out his fridge and recycle his Diet Coke bottles.

But as anyone who is a fan of Chanel and the man behind it knows, the madly prolific Lagerfeld—in between producing eight annual Chanel collections (often shown in exotic, far-flung locales), five for Fendi, and his own collection; shooting Chanel and Fendi campaigns, magazine covers, and fashion sessions; sketching; painting; and generally being the smartest man in the room—also likes to make movies.

Karl Lagerfeld directs Kristen in short film for Chanel

WWD.com : Kristen Stewart, who has appeared in campaigns for Chanel and is regularly front-row at its shows, is to appear in a film being made for the French house’s next Métiers d’Arts show, scheduled for Dec. 1 in Rome.

Sitting in the director’s chair, Karl Lagerfeld wrapped the two-day shoot at Luc Besson’s studio in Paris last month, and conceived the intriguing storyline: A fictional, behind-the-scenes look at a yet-to-be-made biopic about founder Gabrielle Chanel.

Stewart is to portray an actress slated to impersonate the designer as a young woman, while Geraldine Chaplin, who has portrayed a middle-aged Chanel in previous films by Lagerfeld, is in the frame, too.

Lagerfeld said Stewart, best known for the “Twilight” series and her recent turn in “Still Alice,” relished the role, and played it to the hilt. “She played it really, really mean,” he said. “You only see her in tests and she’s complaining about everything. She’s mean with the director; mean with the producer.”

Much of the movie takes place in the office of the would-be film’s producer, and a corridor. Lagerfeld conceived the plot, dialogue, costumes and casting, also roping in Harper’s Bazaar editor Laura Brown to portray an American journalist. “They make so many movies about Chanel, why can’t I make one?” he shrugged.
