    The photograph, shot by Steven Meisel, sees Kristen giving a sultry stare into the camera, while her tousled tresses and bold make-up complete the high-fashion look.

    Kristen has revealed that she deliberately didn’t try to be sexy for the campaign, she told WWD: ‘I think that’s kind of perfect for this particular ad. Usually, a fragrance ad would definitely be (sexy).’

    ‘When I first stood there, I was like, “OK, do you want me to show the curves of the dress? Do you want me to stand like this? Like that?” And they were like, “Just be comfortable.”‘

    Florabotanica is the third fragrance Balenciaga has created, following on from Balenciaga Paris and L’Essence.
