Titled Once and Forever, the movie features Stewart and Geraldine Chaplin co-starring as actresses preparing to appear in a film as Chanel at different ages. This marks the fourth time Chaplin has embodied Chanel in the designer's films. Color us impressed.

As for Stewart, Lagerfeld says of his longtime muse, "She can look like Chanel, and I wanted to show Chanel through all the decades of her life and the comeback in the 1950s."
