Kristen Stewart & Karl Lagerfeld Have Some News

Let's just say the Twilight star bit back in her latest project


Sooo...the Kaiser himself has announced that Kristen Stewart is starring in the newest Chanel movie, which he's of course directing.

We can't say we're surprised - the Twilight actress is no stranger to the brand as she's a frow regular at Chanel shows. She also hung out on the casino set of Chanel's Haute Couture presentation and was the face of Chanel Eyewear for Spring this year. 

The upcoming movie is a fictional, behind-the-scenes biography about Gabrielle Chanel, and in it, the 24-year-old Stewart portrays an actress playing Coco Chanel in her younger days.

“She played it really, really mean,” Lagerfeld said of his muse. “You only see her in tests and she’s complaining about everything. She’s mean with the director; mean with the producer.”

Intrigued? You'll have to hold on tight till the film debuts at the Métiers d’Arts show in Rome on 1 December.
