In her latest project, Kristen Stewart is channeling a fictional character who's channeling a real person. Meta, no? 

WWD reports that Stewart, who is an unequivocal Chanel darling (she's appeared in campaigns and often finds herself in front-row seats for shows), just wrapped a two-day shoot with Karl Lagerfeld. It's a fictional short film about Coco Chanel that centers around—and this is where it gets complicated—a "behind-the-scenes look" at a movie about her.

Stewart channels a "mean" Chanel—or as Lagerfeld states: "She's complaining about everything. She's mean with the director; mean with the producer." Geraldine Chaplin will also star, along with Harper's Bazaar editor Laura Brown (who will play an American journalist). 

As for why? We'll let Lagerfeld take this one: "They make so many movies about Chanel, why can't I make one?" he said. And what Karl wants, Karl gets.

The film will premiere at Chanel's Métiers d'Arts show in Rome in December. Want a taste of what to expect? Here's the Coco Chanel film Lagerfeld premiered at last year's Métiers d'Arts:
