Jessica Chastain is the face of YSL's Manifesto perfume
Jessica Chastain has been announced as the face of Yves Saint Laurent's newest fragrance, Manifesto!
The actress, who was nominated for a BAFTA, Oscar and Golden Globe for her performance in The Help will appear in the campaign imagery and adverts for the new scent, which is said to be "spontaneous and free-spirited", coming in August. Jessica is apparently extremely excited about her new role, as you would be.
"Yves Saint Laurent is a brand that inspires me deeply," she said. "Since its creation, the brand has conveyed strong values that I cherish, such as an unwavering commitment, absolute love and feminine audacity. This new fragrance is an emblem of it all. I am [excited] to be part of this beautiful adventure."
YSL are equally as happy with their choice, brought on by Jessica's 'free mind' and 'solar charm'. Oh, perfume companies.
"We were won over by the very subtle strength of Jessica Chastain, her solar charm, her free mind," said Stephan Bezy, international general manager of Yves Saint Laurent Beauté at L'Oréal, in a statement. "Jessica embodies the quintessence of Saint Laurent's femininity, a woman of her day and age, independent, determined, never where you expect her to be."
Jessica Chastain - doing it for the redheads!
