Los Angeles: Actress Kristen Stewart, the new face of French fashion use Chanel's latest campaign, will star in a film directed by designer and its creative director Karl Lagerfeld.
The story conceived by Lagerfeld is for the 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 actress impersonating the designer as a young woman. 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.
