Cara Delevingne has returned to modeling after a long hiatus to focus on her acting career. The British beauty is the new face of French fashion house Yves Saint Laurent’s La Collection de Paris couture collection, which reportedly was Hedi Slimane’s last show at Paris Fashion Week. The 23-year-old stunned in a series of black and white shots for the fashion house.
In the shots, Cara wears a number of looks from the collection which showed during PFW in the house’s first show at its new home in the restored Hôtel Sénecterre. Hedi Slimane, creative director of YSL took to Twitter to share the first look at the campaign, posting four photos of the model cum actress. Cara wears a tuxedo, a strapless sequinned bustier and a plunging heart-shaped coat.
The campaign shot in New York earlier this month is highly speculated to be Slimane’s last, having been held the title of creative director since 2012. She has worked with Cara since 2013. Besides, the actress also took to social media and shared the series of pictures from the ad campaign. In a few pictures, she smokes a cigarette.
Cara wears a thick choker on her neck, chunky bracelets and sports bold eye make-up with dark kohl lined eyes and smoky eyeshadow. She also wears dark glossy lipstick and matching manicure. Her hair is styled into a slicked back ‘do’.
In the picture where she wears a strapless dress and the fur jacket, Cara sports two diamond drop earrings. “SuprEYEse!” she captioned one picture on Instagram. The actress and model who is known to be playful, shared another shot of her making a face. The YSL campaign marks a comeback for Cara , who just last year said she wanted to quit the fashion industry as it made her “hate” herself.
She opened up about her decision to quit modeling to focus on her acting career, writing an essay for TIME’s Motto, where she said she needed to take a step back to re-evaluate her goals and what she wanted for her career.
