French brand Chanel has announced that American actress Kristen Stewart will star in the campaign for its Métiers d'Art Paris-Dallas 2013-2014 collection, which was presented in Dallas, Texas on December 10.

To be shot, naturally, by none other than Karl Lagerfeld, the campaign will feature the Twilight heroine in pieces from this exceptional collection. The 23-year-old brunette follows in the footsteps of Scottish actress Tilda Swinton, the face of Chanel's Métiers d'Art Paris-Edinburgh collection introduced last year.

Stewart was present for this year's Métiers d'Art festival in Dallas. In addition to the debut of the Chanel Métiers d'Art Paris-Dallas 2013-2014 collection, the event was home to the premiere of The Return, the short film on Coco Chanel, directed by Karl Lagerfeld.

The campaign starring Stewart will be unveiled in the first quarter of 2014. The actress, known for her rocker style, is already a brand ambassador for Florabotanica fragrances from Balenciaga.
