She rocked the Twilight films, making for a rather interesting and unexpected heroine. She is not the actress we would have chosen ourselves, but she got into her role really well and at the end of the day, she and her former beau (both real and on-set) Robert Pattinson created a masterpiece out of a masterpiece, literary brought to film. Kristen Stewart is a beauty, without a doubt. She could certainly smile more on set, but who needs that in the modelling industry? Chanel has had its eye on her for a while now, so it also came as no shock to see Kristen Stewart named as the face of Chanel Makeup. Kristen is expected to appear in a campaign called Collection Eyes 2016, which suits her really well for her eyes are lovely to behold. The photography will be by Mario Testino and the collection campaign will be revealed during the month of March.
The portraits themselves are meant to show off the different facets of being a woman, the contemporary female having many layers to unfold. We are multi-dimensional, interesting, unique and quite powerful, both in mind and emotion, if not physically as well. Chanel wants to channel that and show it off through a series of portraits, which define that modern woman.
Stewart has worked with the house before, fronting the advertising for the Metiers d’Art Paris-Dallas collection in 2013, starring in the “Once and Forever’ film by the House, lensed by Karl Lagerfeld for the Rome edition of the Metier d’Artfashion show in December of 2015, and other small gigs. She is an actress who has been doing a pretty awesome job in the industry, but who has also enjoyed dipping her toes into the Balenciaga fragrance campaign as well.
Lagerfeld seems to be absolutely in love with her sultry, perfect with smoky shadows eyes as well, which means that we should look forward to seeing her on many a Chanel campaign in the coming years. She is only 25 years old at this point, so her modelling career has quite a bit of time to rightfully develop.
While Stewart had been in the acting business since 1999, it was not until 2008 and the Twilight trilogy that her career gained speed. Now, while 3-4 years back she was just a girl sitting in the front row of a renowned Chanel Fashion Week runway show, today she is a favorite for Lagerfeld, who allowed the actress to be cast as Coco Chanel in the 11 minute short film made in honor of the founder of the great house, her vision and mission, and everything she represented for the world of fashion. We expect to see much more of Stewart and rather look forward to it.
