Kristen Stewart stars in Chanel’s new advertising campaign titled “Paris in Rome.” The sleek campaign was was shot by Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld and showcases the pre-fall 2016 collection that premiered in December at the Metiers d’Art show in Rome, the latest in Chanel’s series of globetrotting presentations. The images are expected to make its print debut in June magazines.
“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.”
Lagerfeld gushed to WWD that Stewart “is perfect for the Chanel image of 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.”
