The new Kristen Stewart Chanel ad has been released. The ad was shot by Karl Lagerfeld for the company’s handbag campaign. The black-and-white photo shows the Twilight actress looking chic Kristen with rocking a sleek silk crepe suit coupled with a white tee with the classic lambskin 11.12 bag flung over her shoulder.
Stewart is quoted as saying: “For me the iconic handbag is just like the House of Chanel, fundamental and modern, two qualities not usually shared.”
Chanel’s new campaign also features French model- singer Vanessa Paradis with the “Girl” handbag and the British model of Iraqi descent Alice Dellal with the “Boy” version of the handbag.
The visionaries at Chanel selected the three woman due to how different they each are from each other; together they all come together to tell a story that represents the unique and immortal component of the fashion company. The three beautiful women were with Lagerfeld back in January during Fashion Week in Paris.
Stewart’s has had a relationship with Chanel and Lagerfeld for some time. Ever since she was 17 year old she had first worn a Chanel dress on the red carpet. In 2013 it was announced that she was the new face of the fashion house’s Métiers d’Art collection.
During an interview last year when Stewart was asked about her association with the legendary designer Laerfeld, she said: “His image is in contrast to what it’s really like to be around him. There’s something almost unapproachable and f*cking chic.”
She continues by saying: “He’s an impressive guy. He definitely is so much more than the glasses and the hair than you might think he is.”.
