Kristen Stewart makes her world debut as Coco Chanel in Karl Lagerfeld's latest short film...

Last night at Chanel's Metiers D'art show in Rome the highly anticipated 'Once and Forever' film by Karl Lagerfeld finally made its world premiere, following a month of teasers and sneak peek images.

Starring American actress Kristen Stewart, the short film is a behind the scenes biopic of Gabrielle Chanel, an aspiring actress wanting to play the role of Coco Chanel. Frame after frame, a Chanel-clad Stewart is interjected with a hoodie-wearing woman dissecting her role through a singing, dancing, French-speaking directional story. Directed by Lagerfeld himself, the film was shot at Luc Besson's Paris studio back in July 2015. 

The 11-minute film also stars Geraldine Chaplin, Jérémie Elkaïm, François Marthouret, Amanda Harlech, Jamie Bochert, Jake Davies, Baptiste Giabiconi and Laura Brown.
