Chanel’s Métiers D’Art Paris-Rome Pictures + Interview

The Chanel Métiers D’Art Campaign is here ! Here are the first pictures thanks to kstewartfans, plus an new interview.

: WWD: PARIS — “Karl never turns me into something I’m not. But like all good directors, he is capable of bringing qualities out of people that are sometimes not as obvious to them.”

So says Kristen Stewart, who smolders like some Italian movie star of yore in Chanel’s campaign for its “Paris in Rome” Métiers d’Art collection, lensed by Karl Lagerfeld, one of her most enthusiastic champions.

“She is a real personality. I don’t compare her to any other actress and she is really modern, whatever that means,” Lagerfeld said in an exclusive interview. “And I think that she is perfect for the Chanel image of today.”

Slated to make their debut in June magazines, the ads mark the latest collaboration between the American actress and the German couturier, telegraphing their mutual affection.

“Karl directs photo shoots and always provides an environment for a story to unfold. And the way that occurs is very natural. But always under his guidance, which is felt and inspiring,” Stewart told WWD. “It’s never labor intensive because that is against the nature of spontaneous art.”

Still, Lagerfeld left nothing to chance for the backdrop, bringing in his own Art Deco furniture by Louis Süe and André Mare, co-founders of the Compagnie des arts français, to decorate the location, a large Parisian apartment.

Her hair tousled, a shoulder exposed here, toned gams visible through lacy tights there, Stewart resembles a sultry celebrity — a wink to the show, staged last December at Rome’s hub of Italian film, Cinecittà.

“She is an actress and she is very actress-like, which I love,” Lagerfeld said about Stewart as he flicked through images on his iPad Pro. “This a photo of an actress of a period which does not exist any longer, the kind of movies they don’t make anymore and [Kristen] got it naturally. We did it in one evening.”

“It went very smoothly,” he continued. “She knows us, she knows my whole team so that makes a big difference. For me, working with people I really know is no problem: There is no questioning; there is no drama. We are used to each other so things come naturally.”

Lagerfeld’s mind went to Yvonne Furneaux, a largely forgotten French actress who appeared in Federico Fellini’s 1960 classic, “La Dolce Vita.”

“The hair gives an idea of the period,” the designer said, hastening to add: “This is not a retro collection. It can be a kind of evocation in the air, but it should stay there.”

Lagerfeld cottoned onto Stewart early in her career, captivated by her beauty, talent — and moxie. He cast her as a young Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel for an 11-minute film he screened in tandem with the unveiling of the Paris in Rome collection, paraded in studio No. 5, naturally.

In it, Stewart portrays a fiery young actress brought in to portray the legendary designer in a biopic — only to lock horns with practically everyone on the set, exploding with anger and expletives.

“I like the whole package. I like her expression, I like the toughness of the attitude, everything,” Lagerfeld said. “She is a really good actress. I like tough women who can scream, who can be mean. For men, I hate that; for women, I love it.”

The actress’ screen credits include “Panic Room,” “Into the Wild,” the “Twilight” series and “On the Road.” She will be seen next in Woody Allen’s “Café Society,” being screened on the opening night of the Cannes Film Festival next month, as well as “Personal Shopper,” directed by Olivier Assayas, and “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk,” directed by Ang Lee.

For Chanel, Stewart was the face for another Metiers d’Art campaign, showcasing the Paris-Dallas collection in 2013. She has also appeared in Chanel campaigns for eyewear, the 11.12 handbag collection and for an eye makeup line, the latter photographed by Mario Testino.

Yet Stewart ranks the Paris in Rome shoot as the best yet.

“Wearing the clothes from the show was my favorite experience yet working on campaign shoots with Chanel. The set was so complete and transportive. The clothes within that environment came to life,” she said. “I loved the show; it blew me away. Truly one of my favorite collections yet and I’m so, so happy to be in them and find their stories.”

The Métiers d’Art collection, introduced by Lagerfeld in 2002 as a way to exalt the specialty couture ateliers Chanel owns, ignited the pre-fall frenzy and has become one of the brand’s most important deliveries, backed since 2009 by dedicated advertising campaigns.

Kristen is on the Cover of AnOther Magazine !

Kristen is on one of five covers of AnOther Magazine SS2016 The Party Issue, to celebrate the 15 years anniversary of the magazine.

AnOther : “Parties and magazines have always gone hand in hand, and never more so than in the history of AnOther Magazine,” Jefferson Hack writes in the editor’s letter which opens the issue. “There have been costume-ball parties, private house parties, parties in libraries, after-hours parties, contemporary art parties, rooftop parties, regal garden parties, private boat parties, parties at off-grid locations, modern dance parties and even movie premiere parties.”

It makes perfect sense, therefore, that the 15th anniversary issue of AnOther Magazine takes the form of a party – a raucous but intimate, exuberant but reflective celebration of the most provocative and captivating people, ideas and attitudes of the moment. And to lead the proceedings, our four unique cover stars act as dream party hosts – each of whom defines the AnOther woman. Meet our hosts here.

Actress Kristen Stewart’s rebellious energy is given a romantic twist in photographs by Paolo Roversi, styled by AnOther Magazine’s Fashion Director Katie Shillingford. Accompanying the shoot is a Parisian tête-à-tête with actor and artist Benn Northover, in which the pair consider the strength of focus and subversive spirit which have landed Stewart supporting actress trophies from the New York Film Critic’s Circle and the César awards.

The Spring/Summer 2016 Party issue of AnOther Magazine goes on sale internationally on February 18, 2016. You can order it on the magazine official boutique or on Newsstand.

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.

New Interview w/ USA Today + New Portrait

USA Today : Are you finally ready to take Kristen Stewart seriously as an actress?

We are — and most critics are, too. Since the Twilight saga wrapped in 2012, the 25-year-old has impressed with dramatic turns in films such as Camp X-Ray, Still Alice and Clouds of Sils Maria, for which she won a best supporting actress Cesar Award earlier this year. For those unfamiliar, it’s essentially the French equivalent of an Oscar and she’s the first American to ever win one.

And with roles lined up in new Woody Allen, Ang Lee and Kelly Reichardt films, Kristen is exactly where she wants to be in her career. Promoting her latest, American Ultra, she told USA TODAY:

“It’s nice to have people be like, ‘Hey, good job.’ But I’ve always been really confident about my path. It’s hard for me to speak to the whole idea of fewer roles for women, even though it’s absolutely true, because I’m just like, kind of swimming around this Olympic-sized pool of indulgence, which is so unbelievably lucky. And so (the Cesar) was just kind of a nice pat on the back. Honestly, it was just really cool to get together with everyone and go, ‘(Expletive) yeaaah.’ “

And with the entire awards show in French, she was especially surprised to hear her name called.

“I’m going to be so real with you — I was in utter disbelief sitting there next to Juliette (Binoche, her co-star), who told me, ‘It is crazy you were even considered to be nominated! No way, no way! They’ll never give it to you!’ So I was just sitting there, we were just shooting the (expletive), hanging out, like, ‘Oh, is this the category?’ And then all of a sudden the row cleared out. It was awesome.”

Kristen on the cover of Nylon Magazine – September Issue

Kristen is on the cover of the newest issue of Nylon Magazine ! Here is the first look. Pictures courtesy of kstewartfans.

Nylon.com : What’s it like being with Kristen Stewart in public? Imagine walking around with a jaguar that everyone wants to stare at and pet, even though they know they’re supposed to be cool—even when a big, rare cat is all up in their coffee spot. Problem is, no one can be totally chill around the actress. Not even Stewart herself.

Excruciatingly aware of her fame, Stewart the Global Movie Star orders an almond milk latte at her favorite Echo Park café in a manner best described as awkward-charm offense. She chats with the barista about the café’s latest expansion, yadda yadda yadda, while nervously raking her hands through her choppy bob. Stewart’s chatter isn’t the most natural thing in the world, but its tacit message is clear: See, I’m a nice, regular person. Tell all your friends!

Walking through the outside patio is hardly better. Anyone who isn’t buried in her laptop recognizes That Girl From Twilight. A few whisper or drink her in greedily before looking away, but it hardly matters. The charge is in the air. Stewart’s body is tense, her eyes cast down until she flops into a seat in the most remote corner, an amused, near-exasperated expression on her face.

ELLEUK : Put two of Hollywood’s coolest characters in a room together and sparks are bound to fly. That’s exactly what happened when we tasked rockstar/actress Juliette Lewis to have a ‘deep and meaningful’ with her friend Kristen Stewart, one of the few young actresses working successfully across Hollywood blockbusters, high fashion and cultish Indie movies today.

The results were predictably unpredictable with Lewis accusing Stewart, 20-years her junior of being ‘a scrapper’ and able to ‘throw a punch’, Stewart admitting she has ‘no rhythm’ but wishing she could ‘tear sh*t up on the dance floor’ and the pair discussing everything from the perils of social media, to telling autograph hunters to ‘f-off’ and maintaining true friends despite the pressures of fame.

Lewis calls comedian Amy Shumer her mentor, while Stewart describes meeting Patti Smith when she was in a ‘f**ked place’ emotionally and how the older musician’s advice has proved invaluable.

She also addresses those rumours about her bitchy resting face.

Read the fascinating interview in full in this month’s issue of ELLE Magazine. And watch Kristen Stewart teach us How To Be A Badass in an exclusive behind the scenes film from the cover shoot.
