Kristen Stewart couldn’t say enough about Balenciaga Fashion Director Nicolas Ghesquière, the dapper Frenchman who stood by her during her cheating scandal with Robert Pattinson, amid reports that the brand had dropped Stewart over her affair.
Stewart talked for just over 15 minutes as part of a planned interview with French fashion editor Virginie Mouzat in Los Angeles today (Oct. 18).
Stewart couldn’t’ stop talking about Ghesquière and the impact he’s had on her. The comments come on the heels of an interview in the November issue of Marie Claire UK. The writer couldn’t help notice Stewart’s infatuation with 41-year-old designer and his with her.
Ghesquière was present during the interview in a Parisian hotel room. “Not only are Kristen and Ghesquière untouchably (sorry to be repetitive) cool, they share the same piercing blue eyes (hers emerald, his sea blue) and are also proper friends,” wrote Alice Olins.
Kristen Stewart Revealing in Marie Claire
“They finish each other’s sentences, they have in-jokes and the giggle like a pair of carefree lovers,” she added. Was that ever a wrong choice of words. But the article’s title was even more explosive: “The Other Man in Kristen’s Life.”
“You meet someone and you recognize them,” Stewart said of the dashing designer. “You fu*king recognize them.”
In the latest interview, the first words out of her mouth are about Ghesquière. “I love the way Nicolas carries out everything,” she said, answering the first question about the process of landing a fashion endorsement.
“I met him on a photoshoot when I was, like 14 or 15, so I kind of feel like it started ages ago. But we heard about possibly doing something with him; before I even knew close to what he wanted to do, or what it was going to involve, and I was like ‘Yes!’
“It’s just sort of been fun being around him, and like how everything comes out so naturally and sort of really impulsively… Just sort of like being able to reap the benefits and stand by and watch someone really have a creative splurge. It’s definitely the energy I like to be around.”
Like “Snow White and the Huntsman” Director Rupert Sanders, with whom Kristen had an affair, Ghesquière is also in his early 40s.
Stewart is in the process of trying to rebuild her relationship with Pattinson in the wake of her cheating, but if she hopes to succeed she would do well to curb her infatuations.
