Kristen Stewart for CHANEL

French design house Chanel sent ripples through the worlds of fashion and film when they announced Kristen Stewart as the face of their new season campaign but perhaps they hadn’t quite anticipated how stunning the Los Angeles born actress was going to look in their luxurious Chanel frames…

This week we got a sneak peak at Chanel’s SS15 eyewear campaign which featured the 24-year-old former Twilight star Kristen sporting some of Chanel’s premium sunglasses and eyewear frames; from a pair of delicate diamante Aviators to some dramatic cateye shades adorned with Chanel pearls and gold trim.

The striking black and white images show Kristen with her newly cropped her, messed into a rock chick style handling a vintage camera for the shoot –  demonstrating her sophisticated and elegant transformation since completing the popular Twilight series in which she played leading character Bella Swan.
