Kristen Stewart for Chanel

Ever since it was announced back in February that Kristen Stewart would star in the campaign for Chanel's Métiers d’Art collection, we've been waiting for images to emerge.

While we managed to catch a glimpse of the pictures when they were briefly leaked online a few weeks ago (and swiftly removed by the powers that be), this is the first time we've been able to see them up close. And what a transformation.

Fringed jackets, studded denim, star prints and neckerchiefs – Karl Lagerfeld's latest vision is a lesson in Americana. And Kristen certainly looks like the all-American cowgirl for the Dallas-themed collection.

'This suits me because it is very American,' Kristen said of collection, adding of the shoot 'everything today was like breathing, it was so easy, Karl knew as soon as he saw what he wanted, it was like ‘done!’ It was effortless and he’s awesome and so sweet.'

We think Karl might just have found his new muse...
