In 1967, Betty Catroux met Yves Saint Laurent and soon became muse to the French couturier, sharing a close relationship with him until his death. 50 years later, Catroux still holds a special place at the Saint Laurent fashion house — this time, as the face of its new Fall 2018 #YSL15 campaign by Anthony Vaccarello.
Shot by photographer David Sims, the campaign features the former model and fashion icon looking effortlessly chic in a classic ensemble of a leather jacket and a pair of sunglasses.
In another shot, she exudes an androgynous allure as she dons the latest incarnation of Saint Laurent's Le Smoking jacket, a piece that she helped achieve an iconic status. Talk about coming full circle.
But words don't do Catroux's unrivalled style justice. Instead, it's best to see it for yourself in the new Saint Laurent campaign video below.
