Photos from the Chanel Métiers d'Art collection campaign, starring Kristen Stewart and her nonchalant pout have finally been released. With Karl Lagerfeld clearly favouring classy-rebellious ladies – hi Kendall, Cara, and Keira – no one was surprised at his decision with the Twilight star for his Pre-Fall 2014 looks.

Well, no one except Kristen herself. "Typically I wouldn't see myself as being the quintessential face of Chanel with the pearls and the classics but I liked stepping into that role and this suits me a little bit more than past collections because it is very American," she said in an interview. Karl chose well then.

Gushing about the designer, Kristen said, "He is a true renaissance man, one of the greatest artists of our time."

The 24-year-old actress wears lots of fringe, bandanas, ponchos, and cornrows in her hair; all while looking incredibly high-fashion in the photos. Maybe it's that eternal glowering look she has that adds to the fierce factor – we may want to start practicing it in the mirror alongside the smize and squinch.
