Kristen Stewart Talks Nude Balenciaga Rosabotanica Campaign: “Suddenly It’s Not Fun Anymore”
Kristen Stewart is in full bloom for Balenciaga.
As the face of Balenciaga’s fragrance campaign, the 23-year-old Twilight alum has been posing in the nude for the French fashion house’s Spring 2014 print campaign. But in a new behind-the-scenes video, the brunette says she has never felt more like herself than with nothing more covering her jiggly bits than a few strategically placed floral vines to cover her porcelain skin.
“What I like about this is that I didn’t have to turn into a different person,” Stewart said of her shoots for Balenciaga’s “Rosabotanica” and “Florabotanica” perfumes. “The point was to capture something natural. If you ever feel like you’re forcing something or trying to get the shot, suddenly it’s just not fun anymore.”
Stewart continued, explaining the campaign’s botanical beauty. “It looks like the vines are starting to grow into her and they are becoming a part of her,” she said of the new ads. “She’s clearly very comfortable there and owning it a little bit more. It’s very much in keeping with the story. In the first one ["Florabotanica"], it was very fresh. It was really clean and very bare in your face. In this, it’s a little more lived in. It’s like she knows the environment so well that when the lens steps in to take a look at her, it’s like, ‘I’ve been here in my world for so long, now who’s looking at me?’”
