Watch Kristen Stewart Make Her Debut as Coco Chanel, Directed by Karl Lagerfeld

The new short film, "Once and Forever," premiered at the Chanel Métiers d'art show in Rome.

To coincide with Chanel's Métiers d'art 2015/2016 show, taking place in Rome on Tuesday evening, the French house finally released its much-hyped short film entitled "Once and Forever," directed by Karl Lagerfeld and starring his celebrity muse Kristen Stewart. The 11-minute clip, which also features Geraldine Chaplin, Jamie Bochert, Amanda Harlech and Baptiste Giabiconi, is set behind the scenes of a Coco Chanel biopic, with Stewart portraying a punky, foul-mouthed young actress (aka herself?) who's been cast to play the designer in her early years — and who's a bit of a diva about the film's direction. She sings, dances, speaks French and generally channels the legendary fashion designer in a way we've never seen before, with plenty of modern attitude. Which, we're guessing, is precisely why Lagerfeld likes her so much. Watch it in full above.
