Creative Director Leaving Balenciaga

Kristen’s French fashion mentor Nicolas is leaving the Balenciaga fashion house after 15 years as its creative director. Is Kristen upset?

Kristen Stewart has always raved about Nicolas Ghesquiere and his creative talent. The actress was just seen wearing a sexy black and white outfit from his Spring 2013 collection at her On The Road premiere Nov.3 in Los Angeles.

Nicholas is credited for turning Balenciaga into one of fashion’s hottest clothing labels. He took over as creative director in 1977 and attracted a huge following of young celebrities including Kristen, Nicole Richie and Mary-Kate Olson.

Kristen recently said that she was a fan of Nicolas’ fashions even before her Twilight career started. She wore Balenciaga to her very first Twilight red carpet premiere and will most likely wear one of his edgy inspired looks to the upcoming Breaking Dawn: Part 2 premiere.

The company called the move a “joint decision.” Balenciaga is owned by PPR, whose CEO is Francois-Henri Pinault, the husband of Selma Hayek.  In a statement, the billionaire called Nicolas “an incomparable creative talent”.

No details on a replacement or Nicolas’ next move were provided. The designer will leave at the end of November.

Do you think Kristen will continue to wear outfits designed by Nicolas? What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers?
