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.
Kristen attended several events yesterday at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah on January 24th, 2016. She first attended The Wrap Studio and The Hollywood Reporter Studio where she promoted her latest movie, #CertainWomen, before attending the Variety’s Indie Impact Dinner where she awarded director Kelly Reichardt.
Ahead of the Mademoiselle Privé exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in London this October, Chanel has released a very special trailer to give you an idea of what to expect. From the label’s haute-couture and high-jewellery collections to Chanel No5, the exhibition will celebrate the fashion house’s most illustrious wares – watch Kristen, Keira, Julianne, Lily Rose and Vanessa get you in the mood below.
Doors will open from October 13 to November 1 2015 at the Saatchi Gallery.
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.”

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.
