Kristen Stewart praises ‘creative’ Karl

Kristen Stewart loved working with Karl Lagerfeld on the new Chanel campaign.

The 24-year-old actress is the new face of Chanel and had the chance to work closely with the fashion house’s creative director and head designer. But while Karl is famous for a severe-looking personal style, Kristen found there was more to him than what you see.

“Really, his image is in contrast to what it’s really like to be around him,” she told People magazine. “There’s something almost unapproachable and f***ing chic… And then you meet him and he’s actually an incredibly creative and voracious liver.”

Kristen has had a long love affair with Chanel, having attended many of its fashion shows and she wore the brand to the Met Gala last year. So when Karl asked her to model his latest collection, the star was beyond thrilled, especially as the 80-year-old was shooting it himself in Paris.

“His personal library in Paris that we shot the campaign in, you look around and the staff is like, ‘Now can you believe, he’s actually read all of these books?’ and you’re like, ‘I kind of actually can,’” she continued. “He’s an impressive guy. He definitely is so much more than the glasses and the hair than you might think he is.”

Chanel isn’t the only designer brand that Kristen is working with. She is also the face of Balenciaga perfumes and previously revealed how joining forces with the company changed her opinion on fragrance.

“I'd never worn a scent before I tried Balenciaga Florabotanica, but like clothes can make you aware of different aspects of yourself so a smell can elevate you," she explained. "There's something hot about it - a little heated and slightly more dangerous than the name suggests."
