If you went anywhere near* Grazia Daily* yesterday you'll know that it was the Chanel Couture show in Paris. Kristen Stewart was the gem of the front row, wearing a white Chanel dress with shades.

Although she was sans-Chanel bag at the show, today Chanel have announced that she will front their new handbags campaign with her FROW mates Alice Dellal and Vanessa Paradis. They were shot for the campaign by Karl Lagerfeld, but we'll have to wait till April to see the results.

Kristen and Karl go way back. She was the face of their Paris-Dallas campaign last year, modelling the ranch-ready range. Kristen said to Grazia of her first Chanel campaign: '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.’

She said at the time of the campaign of Karl Lagerfeld: 'He was born to fulfill the role he does, not just in the world of fashion but also in the arts. You know the reason people are intimidated by him is not because he projects that but because of what he has accomplished and everything that he represents. And then when you meet him, he's the opposite of intimidating, he is everything that my experiences taught me about true artists which is that they do what they do because they love it and they need to do it and they have fun doing it.'

She continued: "Therefore, when I get to collaborate with those people it's nothing but everything that I want, all I want to do is to create things with people that are good at what they do and you sort of don't get better than him. And 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.'
