Karl Lagerfeld enlisted his favorite muses, including Kristen Stewart, Julianne Moore and Keira Knightley, to star in the video.

Ahead of Chanel’s Mademoiselle Privé exhibit opening, which will highlight the famed fashion house’s Haute Couture, the high jewelry “Bijoux de Diamants” collection and Chanel No. 5, a behind-the-scenes teaser has been released. And it stars none other than Karl Lagerfeld's favorite Chanel muses including Kristen Stewart, Julianne Moore, Keira Knightley and Lily-Rose Depp, among many other major actresses.

In the two minute-plus trailer, the stars share their thoughts on the fashion house and its longtime creative director Lagerfeld.

“I'm sure that as an artist, Karl works instinctively and compulsively in the same way that he does in all of his mediums. But really as a photographer, there’s such a naturalism,” says Stewart, who took part in Lagerfeld’s Chanel casino-themed couture show in July and will star as Coco Chanel in an upcoming short film that will debut at the Metiers d'Arts show in Rome on Dec 1.

"Once he sees something, you can be done in five minutes, and you don’t even realize that you’ve just finished the entire thing, because he just knows sort of exactly what he wants."

Adds Oscar-winning actress and Stewart’s Still Alice co-star Julianne Moore of what makes Chanel particularly special: “It is the one fashion house that I think is a really perfect blend of modernity and classicism."

The exhibit — opening Oct. 13 until Nov. 1 at London’s Saatchi Gallery — is described on the art gallery's site as "a journey through the originals of Chanel’s creations, capturing the charismatic personality and irreverent spirit of Mademoiselle Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld."
