Balenciaga have announced that Kristen Stewart is the face of the new Balenciaga perfume… hmmm what do we think about that?

The gorgeous Charlotte Gainsbourg is the current face of Balenciaga Paris perfume and I love her ad campaign, she’s so sophisticated and beautiful in an understated way, so I’m interested to see how Kristen Stewart measures up when her Balenciaga campaign is released. Moody teen isn’t really a look that I  associate with a fabulously classy fashion brand!

Kristen Stewart does quite often wear Balenciaga on the red carpet though and is understandably happy about the collaboration saying:

“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.”

While I still need a wee bit of convincing about Kristen Stewart being the face of the new Balenciaga perfume, I definitely don’t need any convincing about trying the new Balenciaga perfume!

I have had the Balenciaga Paris perfume in the past and it’s beautiful, very different to my usual perfumes (which tend to be very fresh florals) – it’s a lovely sophisticated fragrance.

The new Balenciaga perfume is due to be released in Autumn this year. If you can’t wait until then, you can buy the original Balenciaga Paris perfume online from Selfridges or Harvey Nichols
