Back in January it was announced Kristen Stewart was taking on her first fragrance role as the face of Balenciaga Paris' Florabotanica, and today she's spoken in depth about her past (or lack thereof) with perfume. In an interview with WWD, the Twilight star talked about her relief that she likes the scent, as the actress admitted she "would have done anything" to work with Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquière, with whom she attended the Met Gala. Kristen is an interesting choice as she's confessed she's "never worn a scent" and her teenage past did not involve experimenting with fragrance: "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."
The actress has high hopes for her involvement, however, saying: "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." Kristen wears a dress from the flower collection in the print campaign, shot by Steven Meisel. Florabotanica, due out in the US and UK in September, includes vetiver, amber, caladium-leaf, rose, carnation and mint. Are you excited to try it?
