Following the FW18 presentation last week at Paris Fashion Week, Saint Laurent has revealed their latest campaign, with longtime muse Betty Catroux fronting the ads. Catroux first worked with Yves Saint Laurent back in 1967, and from there was a consistent inspiration for the designer until his death in 2008. The model, alongside similar influences such as Catherine Deneuve, Loulou de la Falaise, and Bianca Jagger, were instrumental in the success of YSL's Le Smoking jacket. With Anthony Vaccerello's reimagining of the infamous outwear for the most recent collection, there could be no one better to face the campaign.

The campaign, shot by David Sims, is a first for Catroux, as she has yet to star in any Saint Laurent ads. Catroux is the embodiment of cool, donning a black leather jacket and tinted shades, as well as a glimmering blazer and studded leather jacket. Click through to see the latest campaign below.
