Kristen Stewart is 25-years old today. Yep, it’s been a whole 13 years since a 12-year old K-Stew starred in Panic Room alongside Jodie Foster. A 13 years which has seen the actress become one of Hollywood’s highest earning stars thanks to her blockbuster role as Bella in Twilight, not to mention a list of other hughely successful film credits including Snow White And The Huntsman, On The Road and Still Alice. She’s been the subject of intense media speculation thanks to that break-up, and she’s also a face of Balenciaga and Chanel, two of fashion’s most powerful houses. That’s a pretty jam-packed schedule for a just-turned-25-year-old.
And in fact, Kristen has just become the new face of Chanel’s Sunglasses & Optical collection for Spring/Summer 2015, starring as a photojournalist in the campaign shots, captured by Karl Lagerfeld (naturally). The French brand explained that ‘the actress transformed into a charming photo-reporter, her gaze framed by the new optical eyewear and sunglasses of the House’. Posing with vintage cameras, Kristen shows off her cropped hair in the black-and-white images as part of her second campaign for the brand.
We’d say a Chanel campaign makes for a pretty impressive birthday gift. Particularly when Kristen is following in the footsteps of fashion icons Claudia Schiffer and Linda Evangelista, who have both previously modelled Chanel’s eyewear. Given what she’s accomplished in her 25 years, we’re excited to see what the actress has in store for the next quarter of a century. We only wish our CVs included a high-fash campaign…
