Kristen Stewart stars as Coco Chanel this December #KristenSteward #KarlLagerfeld #Chanel

One of Kristen Steart's upcoming roles is Gabrielle Chanel for the film directed by Karl Lagerfeld. Do you recall the video fellow Chanel muse and actress Keira Knightley made with Lagerfeld? Kristen Stewart worked with the designer for years.

“Really, his image is in contrast to what it’s really like to be around him,” she said. “There’s something almost unapproachable and f—ing chic … And then you meet him and he’s actually an incredibly creative and voracious liver.”

“She played it really, really mean. You only see her in tests and she’s complaining about everything. She’s mean with the director; mean with the producer,” Karl explains.

Cast include Geraldine Chaplin who is cast to play an older version of Coco in the film. The film is scheduled to be shown on December 1st during Chanel's Metier d'Arts show.
