Kristen Stewart is the current muse of Chanel’s Paris-Dallas collection and has opened up on being the face of the high fashion house. Kristen believes that she isn’t a typical fashion spokesmodel but does believe that she is the right person to represent that particular Chanel collection and she felt she identified with designer Karl Lagerfeld’s vision for the original cowboy inspired collection:

”I don’t think I could ever be the classic Chanel spokesmodel, wearing a string of pearls and the brand’s other signature pieces. In any case, I don’t see myself like that. But I’m really into the strength of the Paris-Dallas collection and the idea of playing around with the looks, making them original and unique. It’s a role I identify with. I think this collection adheres to me because it’s very American … it’s a bit more daring.”

Kristen reveals that she feels very lucky to be connected to both Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld because she believes is a very talented artist and she often sources inspiration from him. She also thinks he is always doing impressive and fresh work for the Chanel label without forgetting the Parisian fashion house’s strong heritage:

”Not only is it a privilege to be allowed to wear Chanel clothing, but also to know Karl. In my opinion he’s a true artist and a constant source of inspiration. He is constantly innovating yet never loses sight of the fashion house’s identity. And it’s a real honour to be part of the Chanel family. Karl is born to do what he does, not only in fashion, but art in general. If people are intimidated by him, it’s not because of his image, but because of everything he’s accomplished and what he represents. When you get to know him, you realise he’s everything but intimidating.”
