Kristen Stewart bags a Karl Lagerfeld film
Hollywood actor Kristen Stewart (left) will star in a film directed by designer and creative director Karl Lagerfeld (right). The story conceived by Lagerfeld is for a French fashion house’s upcoming show, reported Variety.
The film will offer a fictional, behind-the-scenes look at a biopic in the making about founder Gabrielle Chanel. Stewart, 25, will portray an actor impersonating the designer as a young woman.
American-born British actor Geraldine Chaplin, who has played Chanel in previous Lagerfeld films, also stars in the movie. The designer filmed the project last month in two days at director Luc Besson’s Paris studio.
“You only see her in tests and she’s complaining about everything. She’s mean with the director; mean with the producer,” Lagerfeld, 81, said. “They make so many movies about Chanel, why can’t I make one?” he added.
