Cara Delevigne and Jane Birkin Star in Saint Laurent’s Latest Campaign
There’s nothing more satisfying than icons coming together. Check out both Jane Birkin and Cara Delevigne in a new set of images to present Saint Laurent’s “Le Smoking”, the revolutionary tuxedo first designed by Yves Saint Laurent for women in 1966 as part of his ‘Pop Art’ collection.
It’s been a while since Cara Delevingne has fronted a fashion campaign but the model-turned-actress is back as the new face of Saint Laurent’s “La Collection de Paris” couture collection, which just debuted on the runway earlier this month. The fashion house unveiled the new ads on Twitter, shortly after debuting its “Le Smoking” campaign starring Jane Birkin. According to the tweets, Delevingne was photographed by creative director Hedi Slimane in New York on March 17th.
Previously, Delevingne starred as the face of Slimane’s first collection for Saint Laurent back in 2013, prompting some speculation that her return could mark a “full circle” for the creative director who is rumored to be leaving the fashion house. Whether or not Delevingne’s modeling comeback is part of Slimane’s last hurrah at Saint Laurent, one thing’s for sure: the sharp black and white photographs are a reminder of how much Delevingne has been missed in the fashion world.
Her apparent comeback has already had much speculation and Cara herself has said she never left. But she has recently spoken out on her depression and her time out from the industry.
