In conjunction with the Chanel Métiers d'art 2015/2016 show, which just concluded in Rome, the maison has finally released the full short Once and Forever.

Kristen Stewart, 25, plays Coco Chanel in the fictional biopic directed by Karl Lagerfeld. Earlier, we talked about how Karl chose Kristen for her ability to deliver fiery emotion and intensity, and yet it did not prepare us for the amount of grrr that KStew delivered in the film. In the 11-minute clip, we see Kristen portraying a spunky, foul-mouthed young actress who's been cast to play Gabrielle Chanel in her younger years. We now get why Karl likes her so much – she does have a mean streak, after all.

Shot over two days at Luc Besson's Paris studio in July, the movie also stars Geraldine Chaplin as a middle-aged Coco. The movie premiered at the Métiers d'art show, with KStew sitting front and centre. Watch the movie above, and the behind the scenes video below. Also look out for our round-ups of the Chanel runway show.
