Kristen Stewart On Working With Balenciaga's Nicolas Ghesquière: "It's Been Fun Being Around Him"

18 October 2012 by

Kristen Stewart did a live streamed Q&A with Balenciaga Florabotanica last night - did you watch and more importantly was your question selected for the On The Road actress to answer? Over 5,000 were sent in by fans from around the world in total, but unsurprisingly the majority answered were all about the fragrance itself.

As well as tackling questions on how Florabotanica smells, what colours it makes her think of, what personality it conjures up and what movie it would be if it were a movie (Alice in Wonderland FYI) Kristen also spoke honestly about her relationship with Balenciaga's Nicolas Ghesquière whom she met on a photoshoot when she was just 14.

The 22-year-old star gushed "It's been fun being around him and seeing how things come out so impulsively and naturally in his work. Everything that Nicolas produces draws fearless people. You need to be an indivdual. It's not in your face, but it's not to be denied. He's one of the only guys I've ever met in this world where I feel like I'm working with a director. Fashion can be a very superficial thing, all about money. But he creates a show. Sure you can pull clothes out of the show but its very conceptual. There are other people like that but it's rare."

Ghesquière isn't the only thing about Balenciaga that Kristen loves. Talking about her leather jacket she said: "it's like a second skin."

If you missed the interview you can watch it back on the Balenciaga Facebook page now.
