The Mirror has Two Faces

Karl Lagerfeld is known for his brooding face, mad design skills, and even his kitty, Choupette, but after Tuesday, he will be know for one more bizarre undertaking.   Chanel announced Tuesday; via Twitter that Kristen Stewart has officially been named the new face of Chanel’s Paris-Dallas 2013 Métier d’Art Collection by posting a picture of the 23-year old actress and the brand’s creative force, Karl Lagerfeld.  She made her debuted dawning a Chanel gray crop top, charcoal sweater tied around her waist, a pair of high-waisted apricot leather pants, and nude heels to pull the look together. Her predecessors are Blake Lively, Keira Knightley, and Diane Kruger; the one thing that these three women share that Kristen does not, simple…facial expressions.  What was the brand thinking?  Yes, K. Stew rose to fame with the Twilight saga, but after her cheating scandal, I feel as though that loyal following of fans is no more.  If the brand wanted to shake things up a bit they could have gone with someone like, Miley Cyrus, granted that they could have gotten her to agree to keep her tongue in her mouth long enough to pose for a couple of pictures.  I think someone like Lily Collins, Olivia Palermo, or Zoe Kravitz would have been a much better fit.
