So that ‘Chanel Boy’ Instagram user (whose account no longer exists) was right all along when he leaked the fashion brand’s Chanel Dallas campaign photos starring Kristen Stewart. And Grazia has an exclusive feature on the entire shoot held by Karl Lagerfeld himself. While the final images are decidedly K.Stew — death stare, intimidating-slash-borderline-uninterested demeanor — it seems like the behind-the-scenes video, which you can watch here, shows the actress in a whole new light. The complete opposite of how she’s usually perceived, in fact. She’s bubbly, she smiles, she chats with Lagerfeld because to her, “he’s a true renaissance man, one of the greatest artists of our time.”
Perhaps this surprising impression of Stewart is because her entire dialogue with Lagerfeld is muted thanks to the video’s musical soundtrack. (Who knows, she might sound as socially awkward as she does during television interviews.) But we’d like to think that in the presence of the Kaiser and being surrounded by beautifully constructed clothes (albeit in a style that’s questionably cliché for a Texan-inspired wardrobe), you’re doing everything but sporting a permanent pout on your face.
