Kristen Stewart: Balenciaga's 'Florabotanica' Ad!

Kristen Stewart is fabulous in an over-the-top floral dress in her ad for Balenciaga‘s latest fragrance, “Florabotanica!”

The 22-year-old star of the Twilight film franchise describes the fragrance as “natural” and “very alive.”

Catherine Walsh, senior vice president of American Fragrances for Coty Prestige, said “Florabotanica” is a “game-changer.” She also talked about the visuals in the ad, saying that the flower is “not just a pretty flower, but a pretty dangerous flower. [Designer Nicolas Ghesquière]’s vision is to twist and turn the heritage and make it something of today.”

The fragrance hits select stores in September and will be available nationwide in October.

    Kstew isn’t exactly the first person that comes to mind when I think of Balenciaga, but good for her I guess. Though that is a very awkward pose and makeup job. It’s like she’s standing in front of a green screen and they just cut and pasted her in.

    What a terrible ad.

    So basically she’s getting paid an insane amount of money for just standing there doing absolutely nothing.. Awesome.

    It looks very tomboyish and her.

    Danni Says:

    This ad looks like it’s geared towards young kids. Definitely doesn’t attract women and scream sexy and seductive. I think it plays perfectly to her teen Twilight and now Snow White fanbase

    JLI Says:

    I like Kristen a lot but that is an awful ad. I’d sue Balenciaga for putting me in a 2008 dress and making this an awful ad.

    Kristen Stewart has the best *dead eyes* in Hollywood, no lie. She should get an Oscar for it.

    Jenni Says:

    I think this perfume is geared toward kids. I don’t know. It looks very edgy and so Kristen and kiddish. It doesn’t look like it’s geared towards adults at all. Maybe that’s the point? If so, it’s pretty cool.

    wilder Says:

    i think it’s cool how Nicholas went back to the archives and used that dress from the 08 collection. it works really well with the ad. it’s very Balenciaga. like they said, it’s a twist and turn in the heritage. it’s definitely going to be popular

    WTF is this ad?

    Cho Says:

    At lease if they wanted to photoshop her in the ad they could of photoshopped her other foot to show the shoes fully….this ad sucks…she looks like she always look when she attends events just awkward.

    Why does Kristen look like a corpse? I’ve got nothing against the girl but I blame the marketing team and makeup/hair crew for this mess.

    This ad is so Kristen. It’s so edgy, boyish, and youthful. I mean it’s totally Kristen. It’s her personality and everything. Great job Nicolas.

    Why does Kristen look so dead in this ad? This is one awful advertisement. Maybe lots of Twilight kids will buy it and that’s probably the point

    Candice Says:

    The perfume is around 68 bucks. There’s no way I can afford it. I love the ad because it screams Kristen Stewart. It’s 100% her. I wonder if she had any say in how she wanted to do this ad. Pretty cool.

    Kristen Stewart is pretty so I understand that people think that taking pictures of her is a good idea but she just never does anything. She always looks bored and blank so it is weird. Give the job to someone who would actually try.

    Facepalm. Kristen is a sweet girl but she always ends up looking so lifeless and dull. I know she’s tryin to become a fashionista but she should stay away from this

    @Candice: $60? If you want to smell like Kristen Stewart, just smoke weed, it’s cheaper.

    That bottle of perfume has more life in it/is more dynamic than Kristin Stewart’s eyes. Also she looks like a corpse.

    V Says:

    Kristen looks fantastic. Come on people, this is not a cover girl ad. It’s about who Balenciaga is and what they want their brand to be. Balenciaga is a high end fashion company, completely different and unique. That’s what Kristen is, she is unique and different. I don’t know why people are threatened by it. Can’t wait to buy this!

  35. 35
    Sandy Says:

    D@mn, it’s like Balenciaga is trying to be mean to this girl! They put her in a 5 year old dress and mess up with her face and hair Kristen is a beautiful girl, look at W magazine, if styles properly. This colab could have been epic. Note: could.

  36. 36
    Bookworm Says:

    WHYYYYYYYYYY do professionals INSIST on making her look godawful? Really, the girl has nice features they can work with but it seems they’d just rather make her look terrible. Who thought this was a good ad to put out into the world?

    V Says:

    Clearly people don’t know the difference between couture and cover girl. It’s obvious Nicolas, the photographer and creative team were going for a certain look. That’s Balenciaga for you. Funnily, whatever Kristen does whether it’s movies, magazines..interviews she will never be good enough for all you haters out there. I wonder who’s lacking..those like you who find faults in people? Or those who dare to be themselves and accept they’re different.

    V Says:

    @Danni: Balenciaga isn’t about sexy and seductive. Do you see her rolling around in sheets? Balenciaga is a fashion art house.

    Jane Says:

    It fits with the gothic undead image kstew has going. If I wanted a girlie perfume, I can pick out literally thousands. Wonderstruck by Taylor swift, britney’s, Paris Hilton’s, Selena gomez, Emma Watson. Kstew’s appeals to a niche that likes her indie movies and the snow white and twilight movies. We know there is a market for that or twilight and swath would not sell very well.

    She looks like a young but more photogenic Helena bonham Carter. I really like that she’s not trying to be another America sweetheart romantic comedy type actress.

  61. 61
    Lex Says:

    Her face is so beautiful. Kristen needs to work with Tim Burton and Helena bonham Carter and Johnny depp. She fits the zombie bride aesthetic so well. But then again that movie’s budget will be through the roof. No one will make any money.

  62. 62
    A fan Says:

    I sincerely hope Kristen finds success after twilight so that all her unique projects get the necessary funding it deserves and her work is lauded as brave and trailblazing instead of rebellous and juvenile which her detractors find glee in saying. Twilight will just be another gothic romance in her past with many more in her future. Lastly, she is not flakey or fashion obsess so I can see her doing work not for the money , fame, or her image, but for the love of film and filmaking.

  63. 63
    Guy Says:

    I think this was sabotage. . I mean come on, it’s just that bad…Could they have at least made her do a pose?

  64. 64
    Kk Says:

    I really like it actually. May not be everyone’s taste, but then again balenciaga is not to everyone’s taste. It is not Chanel or Alexander mcqueen. This campaign speaks to her fans. See the flowers yet not really flowers. The model yet not really a model. The clothes yet not the latest fashion. The doc martens and scary Halloween vibe, not the typical princess perfume. But it will sell just like how swath sell and the twilight series sell.

    Fabi Says:

    Kristen played in 29 movies. I think I watched 25 of them! I still need to watch The messengers, Zathura and Jumper! People that said she can’t act just don’t know what acting is! In fact, they are partly true! Cause Kristen does not act, for the time of her roles! She becomes her characters! That’s why she picks roles that she agrees with! Thats why she does not need a script!

    Bernardo Says:

    hen women are portrayed as submissive in popular media, the reaction broadly seems to be one of two things: “that’s hot” or “that’s offensive.” When men are portrayed as submissive, the reaction is more likely to be one of pity or derision. I recently attended a play party and got chatting to a male dominant while a male submissive was strapped to a nearby spanking bench and flogged by his female dominant. The submissive was young, slightly built, and wearing only a skimpy G-string. The dom I was conversing with admitted he found it hard to watch another man being dominated, because he felt the male submissive was letting their side down. “I want to say, ‘be a man!’” he admitted, although he went on to say he respected that submission made this particular man happy. In her essay “Maid To Order: Commercial S/M and Gender Power,” Anne Mclintock points out that “S/M theatrically flouts the edict that manhood is synonymous with mastery, and submission a female fate.” Indeed, the media fascination that results every time a powerful man is caught associating with a ********** implies an ongoing curiosity about BDSM’s power to invert gender stereotypes .

They are just dull and boring. This is true art!!! Have you ever seen model ads….this is exactly what they look like. Kristen is a great model!!

    Let these fools hate if they please….they are just increasing the hype and making Kristen more successful! Ever heard of no such thing as bad publicity?? It is completely true …that is why famous people always thank the haters for getting them where they are!

    Amelie Says:

    Balenciaga really did their research prior to signing Kristen as their new spokesperson. The support she has (mostly from Twilight fanatics) will probably make this perfume pretty successful. This ad is nothing spectacular or ground-breaking, but Twihards flocked to her defense to call out people who dislike it (honestly, it looks a bit tacky and thrown together to me) as uncultured and unaware of what ‘art’ is. I guess nothing less is to be expected from the Twihards, though. These are people who create website upon website dedicted to tracking down absolutely everything this girl wears, eats, and listens to. Then, they go out and buy every bit of it they can afford so they can be just like Kristen, too. It’s really quite sad, but it does make for her products being more successful.

    People have been wishing Kristen in to oblivion for a long time…and guess what…. she keeps getting more jobs and more opportunities! Because more open minded people can see her worth! She does not have to fit in to a box of “having to behave a certain way” to be interesting, alluring, charming and successful!! Some people seem to want famous people to be all the same! That is not what life is about at all….it is about peoples differences and individuality! Personally I would rather more celebs be like Kristen and less like the typical puppets!

    Bennz Says:

    Umm…newsflash. She’s in a friggen Balenciaga ad. She’s been in a number of blockbusters. She’s at every event where she’s needed (often unsmiling) wearing clothing that designers have given her to wear. She made over $30MILLION last year. You don’t make that sort of money rebelling against the system and its puppetmasters. She is conforming whether you believe it or not.

  103. 103
    Bennz Says:

    I’m sorry, the ad is not attractive. It doesn’t even look like her. You want to know where she looked gorgeous and individual and more like herself? Her ad for the Gap
