The “Twilight” star, who was the face of the luxury labels' Paris-Dallas Métiers D'Art collection last year, has been selected by the brand's chief executive Karl Lagerfeld to star in the upcoming Spring 2015 handbag campaign.
The 24-year-old actress appears in the ads with Chanel muses Vanessa Paradis and Alice Dellal, whom she posed with alongside Karl, 81, at the label's Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2015 show at Paris Fashion Week on January 27 as the announcement was made.
The auburn-haired beauty, who first stepped out in Chanel on the red carpet at the Toronto Film Festival in 2007, previously admitted it was a "privilege" to wear Karl's creations and that working with him was "effortless".
She said: "I've had a budding relationship with Chanel and Karl since I was quite young. The first time I wore Chanel was in 2007 at the Into the Wild premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, then at my first Met Ball experience, the BAFTAs... It always felt like a privilege to wear Chanel and to be around Karl who is an artist that, for me, constantly inspires."
Kristen added of her first encounter with the legendary designer, whom she met on the set of a photo shoot in 2012: "Just to put it sort of dumbly, even just in the way that we were shooting, if you have to try too hard to do something it's probably because it's not right. Everything today [on the set] was like breathing, it was so easy and he knew as soon as he saw what he wanted, it was like, 'Done!' It was effortless and he's awesome and he's so sweet."
