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?

She look like Edward Scissorhands!!!

And she says she is comfortable! Of course she is! She is not smiling… she look a little miserable, as always.

I like Kristen Stewart, but I don’t think she looks good in this ad. The only thing that ad has is a whole lot of confusing going on.

The ads are not what we are used to seeing: selling sex. These ads looks artistic with a touch of primitive art. Some of the flowers look pretty and common while others look exotic and kind of dangerous. Kristen looks fresh like she just took a shower and got dressed, very pretty, and her body language says I am determined to seize the day for whatever it may bring and enjoy it. Definitively different. I like the bottle cap. There could have been a bit more connection between Kristen and the bottle. It just so happens that I am in the mood for a new fragance so I will try it.

I wouldn’t go as far to say kristen’s Perfume ad is stunning, not really. I think we’ve all seen other celebs who look better and are in better ads.
