Kristen Stewart and Janelle Monáe at Chanel’s catwalk made Twitter implode

Janelle Monáe and Kristen Stewart

Janelle Monáe and Kristen Stewart sat front row at a Chanel show honoring the late designer, Karl Lagerfeld, and Twitter had thoughts.

Decked in the designs of the late Chanel creative director, the emotional show saw the pair pay tribute to Lagerfeld at Paris Fashion Week.

As they stared pensively into the camera lens, one Twitter user dubbed the photo ‘a reason to carry on.’

‘The bi/pan community coexisting at last’

Both Stewart and Monáe identify as pansexual (Monáe also identifies as bisexual) and, when in one photo together, it made LGBTI Twitter implode.

One user declared: ‘The bi/pan community coexisting at last’

‘Kristen and Janelle, whew the energy,’ another said.

A user said: ‘Have spent most of the day processing this.’

Lagerfeld’s legacy 

Lagerfeld died last month at the age of roughly 85 (his age was a point of public connection).

The iconic designer took over Chanel in 1982, catapulting the brand into its trend-setting fashion house status it holds today.

Guests of the show, the last designed by Lagerfeld, wore his designs to honor him. 

Monáe wore an Egyptian-inspired piece from Chanel’s Métiers d’Art 2018-19 collection, along with the brand’s signature double-C earrings.

While Stewart, Chanel’s brand ambassadors and the face of their Gabrielle perfume line, wore a black jumpsuit blanketed with the Chanel logo and blue fishnet detailing.

Moreover, Monáe especially has spoken about her love for Lagerfeld.

In 2017, the singer told Vogue: ‘Karl Lagerfeld is just my hero.’

She added: ‘He is someone who sticks to black and white, too. And he finds a lot of freedom in what he wears.’
