Jane Birkin Is The New Face Of Saint Laurent
Heidi Slimane has officially found another campaign star, and she’s like really really REALLY iconic.
FirstÂ CÃ©line broke the internet with itsÂ spring 2015 adsÂ featuring Joan Didion. Then Calvin Klein and Balmain chose toÂ featureÂ celebs like Justin Bieber, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian, and 90s supermodels Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell. But today, Jane Birkin has officially been announced asÂ the new face of Saint Laurent’s “Le Smoking” campaign. And oh my gawd!
If you don’t know, Jane Birkin is a model, actress, and singer from the 60s and 70s who lived her life setting trends while everyone else followed them. Yeah, true fashion symbol type of shit.
Headed and photographed by Saint Laurentâ€™s creative director, Hedi Slimane, Jane poses inÂ Le Smoking tuxedo, which has been a signature of the label since the 1960s. Previously, Hedi has featured the likes of Joni Mitchell, Courtney Love and celebrity offspring Dylan Lee â€” but JANE BIRKIN?! Yeah, this one takes the cake.
I mean, HermÃ¨s did name a handbag after her for a reason!
