Kristen Stewart obsessed with leather jacket

Kristen Stewart says her Balenciaga leather jacket is "like a second skin".

The Twilight star took part in a live streamed question and answer session last night to tie in with her campaign for the label's fragrance Florabotanica.

During the session Kristen explained what she loves most about the designer label.

"[My Balenciaga leather jacket] it's like a second skin," Kristen gushed.

Balenciaga creative director Nicolas Ghesquière announced Kristen's appointment as the face of the perfume in January.

The pair have been acquainted for some time.

The 22-year-old actress met Nicolas on a photoshoot when she was 14-years-old and spoke honestly about their relationship. She praised the designer's skill and is in awe of his creations.

"Everything that Nicolas produces draws fearless people. You need to be an individual. It's not in your face, but it's not to be denied," Kristen explained. "He's one of the only guys I've ever met in this world where I feel like I'm working with a director."

The trendsetting actress thinks Balenciaga is different to other fashion houses.

Kristen praised the label's frontman for his ability to put her at ease as well as for making fashion enjoyable.

"It's been fun being around him and seeing how things come out so impulsively and naturally in his work," Kristen explained. "Fashion can be a very superficial thing, all about money. But he creates a show. Sure you can pull clothes out of the show but it's very conceptual. There are other people like that but it's rare."
