"It feels full circle to be involved with something that spoke to met hen 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.
Balenciaga's creative director, Nicolas Ghesquiere said about Stewart, "Kristen embodies the modernity of the new Balenciaga fragrance with her unique sensibility and intelligence. From her early appearance in 'Panic Room' to her independent choice to 'Welcome to the Riley's', I've always sensed her progressive character. In 2006, I invited her to appear in a project shot by Bruce Weber. Since then, I've always wished to collaborate with her further, knowing that she shares the radical spirit of Balenciaga."

According to The Daily Mail, Stewart and her Breaking Dawn Part 1 co-star Robert Pattinson were not invited to this year's Oscar award ceremony.
