Since the start of her Hollywood career, Kristen Stewart has captivated
audiences with her impassioned character portrayals.
This urbane, spirited young woman will now be the muse of the new
Balenciaga fragrance for women.
Says Kristen Stewart: "I love Balenciaga fashion because it is
incredibly bold and forceful, yet feminine and sexy. I found there was
a real creative freedom about this project. I feel blessed and really
proud of being the face of this new fragrance."
Says Nicolas Ghesquière, Creative Director of Balenciaga: "Kristen
Stewart embodies the modernity of the new Balenciaga fragrance with her
unique sensibility and intelligence. From her early appearance in
'Panic Room' to her independent choice of 'Welcome to the Rileys,' I've
always sensed her progressive character. In 2006, I invited her to
appear in a project shot by Bruce Weber. Since then, I've always wished
to collaborate with her further, knowing that she shares the radical
spirit of Balenciaga."
"Kristen Stewart is the perfect choice as she embodies Nicolas
Ghesquière's unique vision for the second chapter in our fragrance
history," said Isabelle Guichot, CEO Balenciaga.
"Kristen Stewart stood out as an evident choice for this new fragrance.
She has a unique sense of style, quite original and chic in the way she
mixes fashion elements. Her elegant modernity and innate rebel style
perfectly match with the spirit of Balenciaga," said Catherine Walsh,
SVP American Fragrances, Coty Prestige, a division of Coty Inc.
