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.
