Kristen Stewart is the New Face of Chanel, Wears Giant Leather Trousers

By: Barbara DeFranco / December 11, 2013

Why? I have so many questions. First of all, why was Kristen Stewarchosen as the new face of the very high fashion brand Chanel? Perhaps Karl Lagerfeld doesn’t know who Kristen Stewart actually is.

This is the same young lady who brings her Chuck Taylors to red carpet events to change out of her Louboutins. She should be the ambassador of Grunge, not Chanel. It baffles the mind. The confirmation of K Stew’s new gig was confirmed at the Metiers d’Art show last night in Dallas. Kristen posed awkwardly in an ensemble from Chanel’s spring/summer 2014 collection. The outfit included oversized orange leather trousers with a drawstring (!), a cropped grayish top and then another top tied around her waist. Maybe we just don’t get fashion.

Actually, the more I stare at the photos, the whole look is starting to grow on me. I take it all back. She looks great. Sigh.

It’s also worth noting that some of Chanel’s previous selections for the glamorous post include style icons Blake Lively, Keira Knightley and Diane Kruger.
