Balenciaga’s Creative Director, Nicolas Ghesquière, has forged a powerful bond with Charlotte Gainsbourg.

The French actress and singer is regarded as his muse and she has recently fronted the campaign for Balenciaga’s latest fragrance, l’Essence.

Charlotte is one of the jury members for Berlinale Film Festival, so we shouldn’t be surprised that all her looks so far have been Balenciaga.

On Thursday she joined Jake Gyllenhaal for the Jury Photocall during day one of the 62nd Berlinale Film Festival.

She wore one of my favourite looks from the Balenciaga Spring 2012 collection which included a simple white vest, paired with terracotta pants with an orange pocket.

This is a great look for Charlotte, but I prefer the colour of the runway shoes.

Later on that same evening, Charlotte joined Diane Kruger and Lea Seydoux on the red carpet for the ‘Les Adieux de la Reine’ premiere wearing her second look from the Balenciaga Spring 2012 collection.

Whilst Charlotte is staying true to her style, I’m not crazy about this look. Even though it is simply a pleated blouse and colour-block shorts, it’s not really a premiere-worthy look and she has muted it with the tights.

I would’ve loved her to have worn one of Balenciaga’s gowns from the archives.
