New Ad Pays Tribute To Yves Saint Laurent

Former Girls frontman, Christopher Owens, is the subject of Hedi Slimane’s new Saint Laurent advertisement. Hedi, who took over YSL several months ago, pays homage to the brand’s 1971 nude fragrance ad, which featured the original couturier.

The new ad featuring Christopher’s torso and obscured face is the first of 15 images in a new campaign. Christopher was photographed by Hedi who plans to serve as the photographer for the entire campaign.

It’s not the first time a brand has paid tribute to the designer. David Gandy was the subject of Dolce & Gabbana’s eyewear ad.
