karl lagerfeld and kristen stewart are back together again
'I like the whole package. I like her expression, I like the toughness of the attitude, everything.'
Kristen Stewart and Karl Lagerfeld must really like each other, given the number of times the pair has worked together. You really would need three hands to count their collaborations; Stewart calls this their best yet. "The set was so complete and transportive," she told WWD, "the clothes within that environment came to life."
This campaign to support Chanel's Métiers d'Art collection was lensed by Karl himself, who, like Kristen, had a delightful time. "For me, working with people I really know is no problem: There is no questioning; there is no drama. We are used to each other so things come naturally." Karl told WWD.
His praise continued, "I like the whole package. I like her expression, I like the toughness of the attitude, everything." Certainly, Karl echoes our own opinion in this take: "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."
The Métiers d'Art collection was launched by Lagerfeld in 2002, as a means to honor—and showcase—the expert craft of Chanel's own couture ateliers. Each year, the runway show takes over a different city across the world—always scheduled outside of fashion month. Last year's presentation in Rome doubled as the premiere for Once and Forever, a short film led by Kristen and directed by Karl.
