Hot off the presses…Kristen Stewart of the Twilight saga will star in Karl Lagerfeld’s film about Chanel, which isn’t exactly surprising considering Stewart is one of Lagerfeld’s favorite muses as of late. The plot of the film is pretty meta — it’s a fictional film about a fictional biopic about Chanel, where Stewart plays an actress who will play Chanel. Say that three times fast.
Lagerfeld is the brains behind this operation, doing everything from the costumes (obviously) to the directing and casting. Geraldine Chapman and Harper’s Bazaar editor Laura Brown also star in the film with Stewart. Lagerfeld is quoted in WWD saying, “They make so many movies about Chanel, why can’t I make one?” To which I say, why not, Karl? The film was shot in Paris for two days and will be shown in Rome on December 1 at Chanel’s Métiers d’Arts show.
Interesting??? Not a huge fan of the old KS…but I do LOVE me a new flick about my fashion goddess CHANEL!
