Kristen Stewart unleashes her haute cowgirl for Chanel's Métiers d’Art Paris-Dallas ad campaign!

Day. Made.

The final shots for Kristen Stewart’s campaign for Chanel’s Métiers d’Art Paris-Dallas collection are finally here!!

Shot by Karl Lagerfeld himself, the gun-totin’ actress made sure to bring her A-game (and her fierce smolder).

Kristen was one cowgirl definitely not lacking in the badassery department, especially as she was clad in luxe ensems consisting of studded holsters, embellished vests, and silky tops!

Clearly the wild wild west would have looked different if Uncle Karl had any say!

Ch-ch-check out the haute cowgirl's campaign video and HIGHlights from her interview …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

On what she thinks 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. 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."

On how the fashion world, and the experience of a fashion show, compare to the movie world and events such as the Oscars:

"I love sitting down to a show and experiencing it with all of my senses, it's about the music, the feeling in the room. Everything about a show is supposed to evoke a feeling and not all of them do, sometimes it's just about the clothes and when you see a show that tells a story and has a setting and it has a context, it's like watching a film. And so to be around that energy, that's what I look for in my job and so I have nothing to do with fashion necessarily, I don't make the clothes, I have nothing to do with it but just to be around that, is why I do what I do. I want to feel that creative energy and when you find yourself on a movie set and its right, it's like to stumble upon a miracle and you can't really take credit for it, you can't control it, it just happens. And when you go to a good show, it's like you are watching history, it's like you are watching something that is like lighting a bottle, you know they hit something. I've been to two of the shows and each time it was a full experience, it wasn’t about the clothes or picking out what dresses you liked, it's about watching it as a whole, watching the story unfold."

On what the atmosphere was like at the Paris-Dallas show and what inspires her most about this collection:

"We were all transplants, none of us were from there so I think we all got there and felt fully transported into not just another place but another time. Without being remotely derivative it's very referential of something that I come from. Chanel is this quintessentially French brand and they are really pulling from art, history and making a cowboy hat which you would never think would ever work for Chanel but they knocked it out! You know not just chic and elegant and beautiful which it all is but it's also just so cool."

On her favorite piece:

"My favorite dress is the long black tulle one with embroidered stars, and the shoes that I'm wearing in the ad campaign."

On why she decided to collaborate with Chanel:

"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, the Vanity fair shoot were I posed with Karl for Mario Testino. It always felt like a privilege to wear Chanel and to be around Karl who is an artist that, for me, constantly inspires. He manages to never stop moving forward while remaining completely quintessential. Being accepted into the family that is Chanel is very full circle for me."

On what has been the most eye opening or fun experience shooting this campaign:

"The idea of Karl, what he has accomplished, the role he has created for himself in the arts and in society. The only intimidating thing about him really is that scary unapproachable facade which is something people project onto him I think. Because when you meet him or you have the opportunity to watch him work or in my case "work with him" he is so awesome. And you can really reap the benefits of being around someone who knows so much and is so creative and driven and excited. It shocked me what a well-rounded and talented photographer he is. How truly into it he actually was. Basically and obviously, he is so much more than a fashion designer; he is a true renaissance man, one of the greatest artists of our time."

Beautiful, but she's one gal we wouldn't want to find ourselves in a duel with!

    She always looks the same - vacant, bored and dull.
