Done up in laced tights and a high-slit skirt, actress Kristen Stewart discovered her inner Italian bombshell in Chanel’s “Paris In Rome” ad campaign. Shot by Karl Lagerfeld, he captured very different look the public is use to seeing the former “Twilight” star, Stewart has now become one of Karl Lagerfeld’s favorite muse.
“Karl never turns me into something I’m not,” she tells WWD. “But like all good directors, he is capable of bringing qualities out of people that are sometimes not as obvious to them.”
The new ad marks Kristen’s fifth campaign with the brand. Stewart also starred in a beauty, eyewear, and handbag campaign.
Fashion legend and Chanel Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld admitted that Kristen was perfect for what the brand’s image is today. “I like the whole package,” he says. “I like her expression, I like the toughness of the attitude, everything. She is a really good actress. I like tough women who can scream, who can be mean. For men, I hate that; for women, I love it.”
