Kristen Stewart To Star As Coco Chanel in Karl Lagerfeld’s Short Film
“Kristen Stewart” will replace Geraldine Chaplin as the new Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel, a short film “Once and Forever” by Karl Lagerfeld. The new face for Chanel, Kristen Stewart, is a French fashion brand dealing in clothes, luxury goods and fashion articles. The promotion was done by Kristen Stewart and shot by Karl Lagerfeld. Ever since then Karl Lagerfeld couldn’t take the “Twilight” star out of his sight.
Chanel fashion brand was first promoted by Gabrielle Chanel, a French woman born in 18th century. Chanel was known post the World War I era for changing as well as admiring the new styling in clothes of women. She was acknowledged her whole life as ambitious, determined and energetic personality which resulted in her immense success as a business woman. She was the only fashion designer to feature in the list of 100 most influential people of the 20th Century.
Speaking of influence, Kristen has been successful in the field by starring in “Twilight,” the Saga which grossed billions of dollars worldwide. And Karl Lagerfeld doesn’t think different, according to Thefashionspot.com, he said, “I think she’s one of the greatest actors of her generation, she gives the right emotion and the right intensity immediately so it’s very easy to work with her.”
The task of replicating Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel was never easier and, according to Hollywoodlife.com, it got even tougher as the cast never received their scripts at home but were handed them on sets. The shoot was completed within two days in a Paris studio.
Kristen Stewart has cemented herself as a brand icon of Chanel since working with the brand on three different occasions, and with this short film, it is going to get even stronger. Stewart was also spotted in Karl Lagerfeld’s runway shows sitting in the front row. Owing much to the success of the “Twilight” saga, the American born actress is going from strength to strength. So be it a Coco Chanel fans or Stewart fans, there are exciting times ahead, isn’t it? Share your thoughts.
