First Look Kristen Stewart Balenciaga Fragrance Ad Debut
Kristen Stewart debuts new Balenciaga ad. It was recently revealed that she's joining the many stars to foray into the fragrance world, and now Kristen Stewart can be seen in her first ad while also having opened up about the beauty product endeavor.
Florabotanica-based interview with WWD are as follows:
On her fragrance gig being an unlikely one:
“On a base level, the reason you want to wear a fragrance is because you want to smell attractive. That in itself is a pretty mature idea, especially considering the teenager I was. I was never the one wearing my mom’s perfume and trying to be sexy. I was like hanging out with my brothers and doing the opposite of that."
On her relief in being pleased with the scent:
“I’m very lucky that I like the fragrance, because I would have done anything with [Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquière]. And I’m a terrible liar.. There is something natural about it. It’s very alive. I think that as a young person wearing it — considering that I’ve never worn a scent — it kind of puts you on this level of, like, ‘Whoa, check me out.’”
On feeling “lucky” and “really excited” about the fragrance effort:
“Even though, yes, it’s an ad and we’re selling a fragrance — I don’t want to sound pretentious — but I want to be part of this art project. I want to be around Nicolas when he gets excited about fabric. I want to see the look on his face when he sees me put on a dress.”
