Hedi Slimane Taps Cara Delevingne For His Last Saint Laurent Campaign

+

Cara Delevingne looks hot as hell modelling in the latest Saint Laurent ads. Delevingne, who previously stated she was moving on from the modelling thing to focus on acting, clearly hasn’t lost her mojo.

Suit me ?

The images hit the internet mere hours before the news that after four years Hedi Slimane is officially stepping down (being muscled out?) as the brand’s creative director. Slimane’s reign has been controversial since the moment he dropped the “Yves” from “Saint Laurent.” His laid back, California-cool vision for the brand wasn’t to everyone’s taste, to say the least.

François-Henri Pinault, chairman and CEO of Kering, released the following statement:

“What Yves Saint Laurent has achieved over the past four years represents a unique chapter in the history of the house. I am very grateful to Hedi Slimane, and the whole Yves Saint Laurent team, for having set the path that the house has successfully embraced, and which will grant longevity to this legendary brand.” The release notes that a new creative organization “will be communicated in due course.”

 

As for Delevingne, we might be seeing more of fashion’s goofiest Brit, who went on a candid twitter rant about her triumphant return to modelling, in which she reveals she suffers from depression.

Way to go out on a high note, Slimane – these images are killer.
