Kristen Stewart Is Definitely Absent From Balenciaga's New Florabotanica Perfume Commercial

Although Kristen Stewart is the face of Balenciaga's Florabotanica fragrance, she is mysteriously missing from one place—the commercial. Instead of an ad featuring Stewart, Balenciaga went with a more arty video featuring Mondrian-inspired graphics and a soundtrack courtesy of The Kills' "Tape Song."

So, does this mean that Balenciaga is trying to disassociate themselves from K.Stew because of her whole "cheating cheater who cheats" scandal? Or did she opt out, since she has been dropping projects and dodging the media lately? Grazia asked Balenciaga, and the brand said that the video is "in-house only" and that no official TV commercial is planned, which means pretty much nothing, so who knows. If a K.Stew-less video is of interest to you, though, you can see it after the jump.
