Karl Lagerfeld’s 11-minute film Once and Forever is set to debut at Chanel’s Métiers d’Arts on December 1st at the Cinecittà in Rome. Kristen Steward has been featured in Chanel campaigns before. Here, she IS Coco Chanel – kind of. According to WWD, Stewart is to portray an actress slated to impersonate Gabrielle Chanel as a young woman. Geraldine Chaplin plays the middle-aged version.

“I think she’s one of the greatest actors of her generation,” Lagerfeld told WWD. “She gives the right emotion and the right intensity immediately so it’s very easy to work her, like it’s easy to work with Geraldine.”
