Making the most of the Paris Fashion Week festivities, Kristen Stewart showed up at the Chanel Haute Couture presentation on Tuesday (July 8).

The “Twilight Saga: New Moon” starlet was in good spirits as she showed off her new shorter hairdo while posing at the Grand Palais with living legend Karl Lagerfeld.

And though she’s the face of Chanel’s Metiers d’Art campaign, Kristen told press she’s definitely not the traditional choice for the role.

"I don't think I could ever be the classic Chanel spokesmodel, wearing a string of pearls and the brand's other signature pieces. In any case, I don't see myself like that. But I'm really into the strength of the Paris-Dallas collection and the idea of playing around with the looks, making them original and unique. It's a role I identify with. I think this collection adheres to me because it's very American ... it's a bit more daring."

Furthermore, "Not only is it a privilege to be allowed to wear Chanel clothing, but also to know Karl. In my opinion he's a true artist and a constant source of inspiration. He is constantly innovating yet never loses sight of the fashion house's identity. And it's a real honor to be part of the Chanel family.

"Karl is born to do what he does, not only in fashion, but art in general. If people are intimidated by him, it's not because of his image, but because of everything he's accomplished and what he represents. When you get to know him, you realize he's everything but intimidating."
