Following Kristen Stewart’s interview with German magazine 032c about former Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquière, many folks on the Internet concluded that she had severed ties with the house, which is now helmed by Alexander Wang. But an inside source confirmed to us that her contract with Balenciaga is actually alive and well. She has already shot several new fragrance campaigns, the first of which will come out this fall.
This information runs counter to previous rumors that Stewart’s relations with the brand had fizzled once Wang came onboard, as he very publicly sided with Liberty Ross, the wronged woman in Stewart’s cheating scandal with film director Rupert Sanders last summer. Stewart also has yet to wear any of Wang’s Balenciaga designs in public, and she didn’t attend his debut show in Paris in March. Perhaps this will change — maybe she and Wang could even be friends! Or maybe she’ll just fulfill her fragrance “ambassador” duties and bow out when her contract is up.
