Florabotanica: Kristen Stewart’s live interview

— Kristen Stewart shares her perfume application tip
If you wear it casually, wear it in the morning. Wear it when you haven’t showered. I know that sounds disgusting, but that’s the fucking sexiest thing.
— Nicolas Ghesquière
Kristen Stewart has a real personality. She captivated me when we met a few years ago. I had not forgotten her. She is the perfect embodiment of a certain idea of Balenciaga: that beauty that is both pure and uncontrollable. We met again for Florabotanica. She is totally this graceful and mysterious figure that symbolises this strange botanical garden.
