Kristen Stewart Is The New Face Of Chanel

Last night, at a rodeo-inspired Chanel runway show, Kristen Stewart was named the new face of Chanel, with a campaign landing in the spring of 2014. If none of the words in the preceding sentence made sense (Chanel, rodeo, Kristen Stewart), lemme explain.

Every year, Karl Lagerfeld hosts a Chanel Métiers d’Art presentation, which is a collection of pieces between the fall and spring seasons. This has taken place all over the globe. In the past, the show has occurred in Scotland, Toyko, and Bombay. This year, however, Karl opted for the slightly less-exotic city of Dallas, Texas, to show his Americana-inspired collection, proof that people will go wherever Karl Lagerfeld tells them to go. The rodeo-ready collection is heavy on fringe, tiered skirts, and denim—three design elements that don’t appear often in Chanel offerings (though sometimes things happen). Kristen Stewart, fan of sheer jumpsuits, will be the face of this collection.

Kristen hit up the rodeo last night in a mint crop-top sweatshirt and high-waisted burnt-orange leather pants, with another sweater tied around her waist. I guess Kristen was expecting it to be chilly in the barn? Maybe her new BFF, Karl, taught her to always layer. (Karl always layers.) Now they can exchange other tips, like how never to smile and the pros of wearing fingerless gloves with everything, when Karl shoots Kristen’s campaign, which should be released next May!

Kristen starred in a Balenciaga fragrance campaign last year, but this will be the first time she needs to wear a designer’s clothes and make ’em #WERK. Considering how strongly she smolders, we’re confident she’ll be able to pull it off.
