Move over, RPatz…KStew has a new man in her life and his name is Nicolas Ghesquière!
Thanks to the movie, The Devil Wears Prada, I now know how to pronounce the name of Balenciaga’s amazingly talented designer, Nicolas Ghesquière. In case you’re wondering, it’s “GUESS-KEY-YAIR.” Lovely isn’t it? Just rolls off the tongue!
One person who I’m sure doesn’t need help pronouncing his name is Kristen Stewart…his new bff.
It’s not unusual for celebrities to be buddy buddy with fashion designers – Audrey Hepburn and Givenchy, Grace Kelly and Christian Dior, Colin Firth and Tom Ford, Penelope Hughes and Diane von Furstenberg…okay, so that last one isn’t exactly true but a girl can dream, right?
The reason why this is not an unusual trend is because Hollywood and the world of fashion go together like peanut butter and jelly…or rather, caviar and finely buttered toast (which, if you ask me sounds disgusting, but apparently if you’re rich and sophisticated it makes a lovely mix). A fabulous actress must always appear fabulous, and that’s where a brilliant designer comes in.
The fabulous actress in this case is Kristen Stewart, and the brilliant designer, Nicolas Ghesquière of Balenciaga. Lately it seems he’s all she’s been wearing at major red carpet events, and, in my opinion, they’re the perfect match. She’s young, modern, and edgy, and Ghesquière’s designs consistently push the envelope. He uses funky textures with sleek silhouettes and his looks are, for lack of a better word, badass. Kristen Stewart is a badass herself, pairing sneakers with couture, and preferring motorcycle jackets and beat-up tees over fancy ensembles. That’s what makes this relationship so perfect. In all of his designs, Kristen just looks like herself. She wears the clothes, the clothes don’t wear her, and nothing is more fabulous than that.
