I think it looks OK. There's way too much going on with all the florals and colors, but I like Kristen's pose and expression.

i think she looks ok although i find the composition a little off, the bottle is too big and Kristen should've been placed on the center imo

and i actually understand why they chose her for the brand.. i mean she's kinda awkward, aloof and has this very nonchalant attitude like she's not really interested in Hollywood or fashion,
i could even picture her in the last two Balenciaga campaigns, i think she'd easily fit in with the other models

To achieve this result any teenager would do.

And it baffles me why is Kristen chosen to front any brand, this girl has the worst off duty style in this side of the hemisphere and is dressed to the last detail by stylists on the red carpet. Why are is fashion world so obsessed with embracing her? Does Balenciaga really need the Twilight millions to rub on them?

^Exposure, big fan base, publicity..

But honestly, I find it wrong whenever celebrities front any brands. Celebrities can't hold the same mystique they did in past times, and more often than not our own knowledge of them usually clash with whatever image they're promoting.

Just look at the Miss Dior Cherie campaign fronted by Natalie Portman. She looks fantastic in it and I like her but it doesn't come close to the campaign fronted by Marina. With a model, it's always them inhabiting the image and the look. With celebrities there's always a 'meet me half way' thing going on.

they used that spring 08 dress because of the flower print... and maybe because Ghesquiere's designs these last seasons aren't that impressive to put in their ad

Now, that's a much better shot. Kristen's pose it much better...more relaxed. I look forward to seeing that new shot in HQ. I also really like the SS08 dress styled with the SS11 boots.

^ if it wasn't for your comment i would've never noticed the slightly different pose , but it does make a difference indeed..
although i still find odd how she looks like a secondary element and placed at the end of the image

^We won't be seeing that on our TV screens, nor will we be seeing a video ad with Kristen either, that is an internal video for Balenciaga, the ad will only be in Print, I'm kind of disappointed by that because the video is quite nice and I love the music (Tape Song - The Kills).

I suppose the best thing about this ad is that Kristen and her awful pose aren't the first things that catch your eye. She basically fades into that busy background.

There is another shot to the campaign, a head shot with her behind some of the flowers.
