Kristen Stewart credits her love of fashion to Nicolas Ghesquiere .

The 'Twilight Saga' star believes Balenciaga's creative director has changed her view on fashion, "evoking a feeling" from her rather than it being just another job.

She said: "I had to have a relationship with fashion from such a young age - you walk down the red carpet, and it matters. It's strange.

"At first I just wanted to get it right, I wanted it to be smooth sailing and just to be able to do my job.

"Then I did a photo shoot with Nicolas and it was the first time that taking photos in high fashion felt like telling a story, that it was part of a concept - it wasn't just about something on the surface, it really evoked a feeling."

The 22-year-old actress is so loyal to the band that she is now the face of the house's new fragrance Florabotanica, but her favourite piece is her leather jacket, which she describes as her "second skin".

Kristen also talked about how "natural" it is working with Nicolas and appreciates his professional approach to projects.

She added in an interview with "He's really one of the only guys I've ever met in [fashion] that makes me feel like I'm working for a director.

"He's really creatively impulsive. Fashion can be a very superficial, surface-level thing that is all about money and image, but he really creates a show. You can pull clothes out of a show and it's like watching a movie."
