Kristen Stewart‘s perma-scowl is going to be the star of Chanel’s forthcoming Métiers D’Art film. Karl Lagerfeld tapped the brooding muse to play none other than Coco Chanel for a short film that will be shown during the label’s anticipated show in Rome. Of course, Karl Lagerfeld is directing the entire thing, which is a fictional behind-the-scenes look at a biopic about the house’s founder. How wonderfully meta.
Stewart is tapping into a sour space to play the role, according to Mr. Lagerfeld. “She played it really, really mean,” he told WWD. “You only see her in tests and she’s complaining about everything. She’s mean with the director; mean with the producer.” Sounds like a true cinematic event.
The Métiers D’Art show is expected to stage December 1.
