Kristen Stewart Is A Diva On Set

Karl Lagerfeld’s new film draws out the Twilight and Still Alice star’s attitude


Okay, to be fair, Kristen Stewart had to do the diva thing on this set -  that of Once and Forever, Karl Lagerfeld’s new film that stars Stewart alongside the American-born British actress and daughter of Charlie Chaplin, Geraldine Chaplin.

In it, Stewart plays an actress portraying the role of a young and feisty Gabrielle Chanel during her pre-designing days - think mild-mannered one moment and screaming expletives the next. Intimidating much?

Lagerfeld directed both actresses in this film about a film at Luc Besson’s Paris studios over two days.

It will be released on 1 December as a prelude to Chanel’s Métiers d’art collection for pre-Fall 2016, which will be presented in Rome on the same day at Cinecittà, the city’s legendary film studios.

“She can look like Chanel, and I wanted to show Chanel through all the decades of her life and the comeback in the 1950’s,” quipped Lagerfeld of Stewart, whose status as a Chanel muse has seen her front two Chanel campaigns so far.

The 71-year old Chaplin, on the other hand, reprises her role as an older Mademoiselle Chanel for the fourth time in a Lagerfeld-directed film.
