CHANEL has signed American actress Kristen Stewart as the new face of its 2016 EYES COLLECTION campaign, photographed by Mario Testino and scheduled to break in March 2016.
Stewart appears in a series of portraits embodying various facets of the contemporary CHANEL woman. She appeared previously as the face of the 2013 Paris-Dallas 2013/14 Métiers d’art collection and is also the face of the Paris in Rome 2015/16 Métiers d’art collection advertising campaign to be unveiled in May 2016. She starred in the short film Once and Forever, directed by Karl Lagerfeld, which premiered last December during the fashion show in Rome.
Stewart received acclaim for her roles in Panic Room (2002), Into the Wild (2007), the Twilight series (which began in 2008), Adventureland (2009), Clouds of Sils Maria (2014), and Still Alice (2015), among others. This year, Kristen will be featured in the upcoming film Personal Shopper by French director Olivier Assayas, as well as an as-yet untitled film by Woody Allen and Oscar-winning director Ang Lee’s Iraq war drama Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.
