Is Balenciaga Breaking Up With K.Stew Too?
It looks like Kristen Stewart’s “momentary indiscretion” may have cost her more than the affections of Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson. The rumor mill has been buzzing lately that couture brand Balenciaga is set on distancing itself from the beleaguered starlet, who had previously been the face of the label’s Florabotanica fragrance campaign. And while this rumor is unsubstantiated, another piece of evidence has reared its head as Stewart is mysteriously absent from a pivotal piece of marketing magic… the commercial. The Balenciaga video features Mondrion-inspired graphics to a soundtrack of The Kills’ “Tape Song” — but no K.Stew.
The actress has been media-dodging and dropping out of promotional commitments and projects since the cheating scandal broke, and while Balenciaga has stated that the actress has not been dropped and that the video is “in-house only” — it’s fueling the fire of luxe label meets Hollywood drama. Oh, K.Stew… what did you do?
