charlottegainsbourg_nicolasghesquiere_redcarpet.jpgThe Gainsbourg-Ghesquière love affair continues... Not literally mind, we don't want to start rumours of that nature. No, I'm talking creatively.

Charlotte Gainsbourg is re-teaming up Nicolas Ghesquière to front his first fragrance campaign for Balenciaga. The brand signed to Coty Prestige last year after taking a break from the perfume game for a while. Ghesquière and Gainsbourg are in Los Angeles this week to shoot the ads for his debut scent, due out in February 2010.

"My friendship with Nicolas Ghesquière, our bond made of mutual admiration and complicity, grew so strong over the years that I was secretly hoping to be the face of Nicolas' first perfume for Balenciaga," said Gainsbourg.

"I have the feeling that the house of Balenciaga has become my second home," she added.

Of course she is no stranger to Balenciaga, she replaced Jennifer Connelly last year to be the face of the brand's A/W 2008-09 womenswear campaign. Does this mean that Connelly will be returning to star in the A/W 2009-10 ads, as previously speculated?
