Not only did the star jet to Dallas to take in the new Métiers D’Art Paris-Dallas collection, but she’s also the face of the line! How cool is that?
Congratulations are in order for Kristen Stewart! The 23-year-old actress added a new, high-fashion gig to her resume — as the new face of Chanel! The news broke at Chanel’s Métiers D’Art Paris-Dallas show in Dallas, Texas at Fair Park on Dec. 10, where the star was spotted in the front row, taking in the vintage, Americana-inspired collection. We’re so excited for the star!
Kristen Stewart — Karl Lagerfeld’s Muse:
The campaign has yet to be shot, however, Karl Lagerfeld will shoot it himself and it’s slated for a May 2014 release — and we can’t wait to see it! While Kristen isn’t a major fixture in the front row at fashion week, we actually weren’t surprised to see her in Dallas — not only does she have a seriously stylish presence on the red carpet, but she has a great relationship with Karl. The actress first met the brand’s creative director in January 2012 during a photo shoot in Paris, and she first wore Chanel for an appearance at the Toronto Film Festival in 2007. Despite the fact that she was going through a very public breakup with Robert Pattinson, she still turned up in Paris in July 2013 to support the creative director at the Chanel show during Paris Fashion Week and paid a visit to Coco Chanel‘s apartment — and it’s all because of Karl!
Kristen’s close friend EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife why they get along so well. “Kristen is a huge fan of Mr. Lagerfeld and was honored to be invited to such an extraordinary fashion event. She loves his style and quirky sense of humor. He gets her and she loves him for that.”
Kristen Stewart Chanel’s Face For The Paris-Dallas Métiers D’Art Collection:
Kristen landed one of the most coveted gigs in fashion — and it couldn’t come at a more perfect time! Lagerfeld was certainly inspired by Texas, and it was visible throughout the Americana-inspired collection which featured everything from fringe to denim and tweed. Come to think of it, it was the most KStew collection to date, as the star loves denim!
She looked cool and confident in separates from Chanel’s Spring 2014 collection, which consisted of wide-leg, high-waisted trousers and a crop top as she watched the collection come down the runway. Before taking in the show, she sat in a vintage car from the 50s with pal Dakota Fanning for a special screening of Karl’s film, The Return.
KStew and Chanel are a match made in fashion heaven. Do you agree?
