Things suddenly seem a little brighter for Kristen Stewart.
The On the Road actress, who had a difficult summer, to say the least, seemed in very good spirits Thursday in Paris, even giving photographers — notoriously her nemesis — a pose and a smile as she arrived for the Balenciaga fashion show on Rue Cassette. (Stewart is the face of the label’s new fragrance, Florabotanica.)
“It was a whole new Kristen,” one photographer remarked to PEOPLE.
If she felt good, the Twilight star certainly looked good, wearing a bright-yellow leather jacket, black top and patterned black slacks.
Also on hand for the Balenciaga show was Salma Hayek; her husband François-Henri Pinault’s company, PPR, owns the design house.
