Kristin Stewart Looks Super Excited About Her New Job, oh… Maybe not!

Hi Pouters!

Kirsten Stewart attend the Balenciaga Ready-To-Wear Fall/Winter 2012 show as part of Paris Fashion Week on March 1, 2012 in Paris.

So did you hear about Kristin Stewart’s new job? She is the new face of Balenciaga perfume. She is going to be a real life model that is supposed to portray emotions in photographs…. it’s going to be so beautiful!

The news that she had landed this job, that I daresay others would have given a right tit for, came out in January and this is what she had to say about it:

“I love Balenciaga fashion because it is incredibly bold and forceful, yet feminine and sexy,” Kristen said in a statement. “I found there was a real creative freedom in this project. I feel blessed and really proud to be the face of this new fragrance.”

Last week she was in Paris for Fashion Week taking care of some business obligations and going to Fashion Shows and such, anyone should be blessed to be in such a position however she doesn’t look happy. Oh, wait, she never looks happy, does she? But really, dare I say she looks sullen? Gloomy? As though someone is busy pissing on her face? In serious pain? Oh, stop that Fi, be nice….

Why is she not happy that her job requires her to go to fashion shows? It sure beats filing… Thats for sure!

And I don’t want to pick on her too much, I can understand that when one is doing such exciting and incredible things, I can even get all caught up and be completely distracted that people can ask you “Are you having any fun at all?” or “Why do you look so miserable?”  so I do understand she cannot be smiling all the time, but surely as a part of being in the public eye so much she would of had some emotion coaching or training to not look so spaced out and uninterested all the time?

She is working. She is not supposed to look like she’s been smacked multiple times in the face by a dead fish. She is trying to make a good impression on the brand and that constant pout isn’t going to do her any favours, in my opinion anyway… It’s like I can hear Balenciaga’s public relation manager in the back of my mind yelling “MISS STEWART…. NO BONUS FOR YOU! YOU MAKE OUR BRAND LOOK LIKE MISERY PERSONIFIED” at the top of his lungs.

Have a look at the pictures and let me know what you think?

Haute Couture : Alexis Mabille : Spring 2012 Collection

Good Monday Morning ❤


Alexis Mabille

and if you’re not clued up on who they are in the haute couture world, an official guest member for the spring/summer 2012 fashion week in Paris.

This collection was show cased on Monday….

Alexis Mabille’s inspiration was

“It is only women who do not know how to dress that are afraid of colors” 

and later explained that the collection was also inspired by a photograph of iconic model Lisa Fonssagrives on a beach, her face suffused with pink from the sunlight coming through her umbrella.

The beautiful models on the catwalk were : Emilia Nawarecka , Katlin Aas , Kamila Filipcikova, Caterina Ravaglia, Linnea Regnander, Eugenia Mandzhieva, Thana Kuhnen , Pauline van der Cruysse, Shena Moulton, Alana Bunte , Anais Pouliot, Kelli Lumi, Karo Mrozkova, So Young Kang, Tilda Lindstam ,Simona Andrejic and Antonia Wesseloh.

Each item of clothing, as I can only imagine you just saw from my collection of images from the show above, was monochrome. Alexis Mabille was really making the c0lour blocking statement as bold as he possibly could, and as such each models face was painted the same shade as the giant piece of tissue paper mounted to her head. I must be honest, upon first looking at these images – I hated them. The idea has started to grown on me and I can see some light at the end of the tunnel for the collection, however a lot of the critics haven’t.

Fashion critics have questioned Alexis Mabille’s quality of the couture he produced for this years Fashion Week, in comparasion to the grand masters.

A penny for your thoughts Pouters?
