Kristen Stewart, Nicolas Ghesquiere

In the latest issue of Marie Claire, cover girl Kristen Stewart really lets her hipster flag fly. She reads some of her original poetry, lounges around in Vans and dog tags, casually talks about modernist know the drill by now. But then suddenly, somewhere between the sneakers and Steinbeck, she gets to talking about Nicolas Ghesquiere (creative director of Louis Vuitton, formerly of Balenciaga). As she tells the tale of her introduction to the designer and the world of high fashion in general, it reads more like a romance novel meet-cute than anything else. Check out what she had to say (along with some imagined romantic subtext on my end, identified in italics):

"I did a photo shoot with Bruce Weber when I was 14 for Interview magazine. I met Nicolas Ghesquiere."

Kristen pauses, flipping her auburn bed-head to the other side, switching her part—a nervous tick when interviewers come close to striking an emotional chord. She looks off into the distance, lost in the memory of that chance meeting with Nicolas. A delicate and knowing glimmer flashes in her green eyes, though it disappears just as quickly.

Whew! We can finally rest easy, y'all—Kristen Stewart has officially been confirmed for several (!!!) more campaigns with Balenciaga, according to The Cut. Due to last summer's, erm, situation with Rupert Sanders, many were worried the Twilight star would be dropped from the French fashion house. Also, Balenciaga's creative director Nicolas Ghesquière (who is BFFs with K Stew and acquired her for the campaigns) left last fall, making us/the internet TWICE as skeptical about her future with the brand. In a recent article from 032c magazine about Nicolas' departure, Kristen confirmed her devotion to him and said, "He is a reminder of how f****** annoying everyone else is. It’s not easy to walk a line that not every single person in the world is going to get in a second. Nicolas is the sort of person who loves swimming in rough water [...] I’ve felt the happiest I’ve ever felt wearing these clothes. I’ve also felt androgynous and rigid. Sort of like you’re wearing a f****** building."

Nicolas Tweets
Nicolas Ghesquière arrives fashionably late to the social networking world. And although @TWNGhesquiere has no tweets yet, just look who's pictured in his avatar. Bffle cakes.

Anna Delegates?
Will Anna Wintour, our dictator of taste, serve a new post as ambassador to the U.K.? The rumor mill is ch-ch-churning! Also, tehe at the thought of Queen Anna technically being a civil servant.

CR Sells Out
It's official. The former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris Carine Roitfield has completely sold out the first issue of CR Fashion Book at newsstands. Not too shabby for a maiden voyage, eh???

Kristen Stewart promotes 'On The Road.'

It's official: sometimes a really great outfit works just as well as coffee at waking us up. Don't believe it? Just check out Kristen Stewart, who has made dreary Monday morning a LOT more exciting with this seriously eye-opening ensemble. There's no doubt the actress has been upping her fashion game in a whole new way recently (her creepy Halloween costume and otherwise), but her latest style transformation might be the best one yet. Hot on the heels of her recent Glamour Poland cover, the star hit the red carpet this weekend to promote On The Road wearing—wait for it...a sleek white bustier top. Whoa. The menswear-inspired look comes courtesy of Balenciaga's Spring/Summer 2013 collection, which makes Kristen THE very first person to rock the outfit off the runway. Considering her supertight status with the label's designer, Nicolas Ghesquière, we're not at all surprised about this special treatment. But now that Ghesquière shockingly announced his departure from the French fashion house this morning, what does that mean for K.Stew's relationship with the brand?

It's not often that Kristen Stewart gives an interview that revolves purely around fashion and beauty— so rare, in fact, that we had to drop everything else were doing yesterday afternoon to watch the actress's Balenciaga interview go down as it was happening. And it's a good thing we did, because the 15-minute livestream Q&A was basically a crash course in Kristen's Florabotanica history....not to mention, covering everything from her favorite black leather jacket, that French je ne sais quoi, and how she relates to Alice in Wonderland. She MAY not have been able to fill the entire 30-minute time slot (girl gets to her point fast), but the spokesmodel for the fashion house's new fragrance covered a TON of territory in a short timespan. We've got your K.Stew interview Sparknotes below, so let's review!

There was a lot of speculation after that whole Rupert Sanders thing that Kristen Stewart may have been dropped from her illustrious job as face of the Balenciaga fragrance. Well, rest easy, y'all, because K.Stew's Florabotanica campaign is definitely still a GO! Both the On The Road actress and Balenciaga's creative director Nicolas Ghesquière take time in this behind-the-scenes video to talk about the Florabotanica fragrance, the mood behind the campaign, and elaborate on the choice of Kristen as the face of the perfume.

This just in: Kristen Stewart will be the new face of Balenciaga's women's fragrance for fall 2012, according to the brand's creative director Nicolas Ghesquière! The Twilight star will front the yet-to-be-named scent and said, "I love Balenciaga fashion because it is incredibly bold and forceful, yet feminine and sexy. I found there was a real creative freedom about this project. I feel blessed and really proud of being the face of this new fragrance." We are SO stoked for this campaign because K Stew is totally high-fashion vixen meets tomboy rocker, which will be absolutely perfect for the new scent. Kristen shared even more sentiments about the upcoming project with WWD and said, "Balenciaga has always stood out to me. Even when I first began to consider fashion and admittedly rarely knew the brand I was wearing, I always recognized and loved Balenciaga. It feels full circle to be involved with something that spoke to me then and of course continues to excite me now. The brand is just cool. That's the way it is. I feel drawn to it. It provokes on a number of levels. It isn't afraid or contrived. It hits a very cool balance, always. Always pretty undeniable."

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
