Kristen Stewart with Nicolas Ghesquière and the last time she wore Balenciaga

Nicolas Ghesquière is the reason Kristen Stewart ever became interested in fashion and in turn she was declared as the face of Balenciaga’s fragrance under his creative directorship. So what exactly happens for Kristen now that her number one fashion fan Nicolas is no longer at the helm of the Parisian brand? Well, we’ve already noticed that she has not worn Balenciaga since that stunning Resort look (the white cut-out bodice top and black tailored trouser combo) for an On The Road promo on November 3, just two days before the departure of Nicolas from the label he had worked at for 15 highly influential years was announced.

Many models and celebrities maintain their status as an ambassador of a brand, even after the designer’s departure, but there’s potentially an extra bump in K-Stew’s contract if you put two and two together…. Now that Alexander Wang’s position at Balenciaga has been made official, not only will we be likely to see a major shift in style, image and cult following (as fervently discussed by fashion commentators, designers and everyone in-between), but he may draft in his own  muse: model and actress Liberty Ross. You may recall she made a fierce comeback on his Spring Summer 2013 mainline runway last September, but will she be part of Wang’s new venture?

Nicholas joined Twitter toda @TWNGhesquiere. 2,512 followers and counting!

Well, it looks today likes Ghesquière ain’t letting go of his American starlet. Nicolas has joined Twitter, landing with an avatar image of himself avec Kristen. Is this a hint hint that K-Stew be heading with Nicolas into the as-yet-unknown future? Will there be an awkward ditching of Kristen from the Florabotanica campaign? Could the two ladies even have to be in the same showspace as each other come fashion week? We certainly know how butt-clenchingly horrible it is to turn up at the same do as a love rival…
