Watch the first trailer for Kristen Stewart’s Chanel film

The actress takes on the role of Coco Chanel in the upcoming Once and Forever

The new trailer has finally dropped for Karl Lagerfeld's long-awaited Chanel film, Once and Forever. Featuring Kristen Stewart as both Coco Chanel and an actress playing Coco Chanel, the 11 minute short is a confusingly meta take on the fashion founder's life.

“(Kristen is) so good,” Lagerfeld explained to WWD. “I think she’s one of the greatest actors of her generation. She gives the right emotion and the right intensity immediately so it’s very easy to work her...”

And, judging by early reports, the film will show a whole new (and highly sassy) side of the Clouds of Sils Maria actress. “She played it really, really mean,” the creative director added. “She’s complaining about everything. She’s mean with the director; mean with the producer.”

The film will be shown in its entirety at the Chanel’s Métiers d’Art show on December 1. In the meantime, you can whet your appetite by watching the quick 30 second teaser below.
