Kristen Stewart made big beauty news when she was named the face of Balenciaga’s newest fragrance, Florabotanica, and now fans can finally get a look at the gorgeous ad campaign.

During an interview with WWD, Stewart admitted she was unsure about how she should pose for the photos. “When I first stood there, I was like, ‘OK, do you want me to show the curves of the dress? Do you want me to stand like this? Like that?’ And they were like, ‘Just be comfortable.'”

Along with approving of the futuristic floral ad (shot by famed photographer Steven Meisel), she’s also 100 percent happy with the fragrance.

“There is something natural about it,” the On The Road actress explained. “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.'”

The star also admitted that she was rather nervous to initially smell it. “I’m very lucky that I like the fragrance, because I would have done anything with [Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquière],”she revealed. “And I’m a terrible liar.”

Florabotanica features notes of vetiver, amber and caladium-leaf accord, a (hybrid) rose, carnation and mint accord and is set to be released in September. Tell us: What do you think of the ad?

I feel like they could have incorporated Kristen’s love for twitching and blinking but I am glad to see that the stone face expression remains intact!

I do love her and think she’s gorgeous, but I HATE this add. She looks like Edward Scissorhands. So weird…

Morri: your hateful comments say more about you than Kristen. I will pray for your cold dead heart.

I find i am very fascinated by Kristen Stewart. I find that i enjoy her performances on the screen and i’m quite fascinated by the way her mind works. Kristen is a rare woman who as far i can see has beauty, brains, common-sense and from this article must smell gorgeous.
