It’s been a while since Cara Delevingne has fronted a fashion campaign but the model-turned-actress is back as the new face of Saint Laurent’s “La Collection de Paris” couture collection, which just debuted on the runway earlier this month. The fashion house unveiled the new ads on Twitter, shortly after debuting its “Le Smoking” campaign starring Jane Birkin. According to the tweets, Delevingne was photographed by creative director Hedi Slimane in New York on March 17th.
Previously, Delevingne starred as the face of Slimane’s first collection for Saint Laurent back in 2013, prompting some speculation that her return could mark a “full circle” for the creative director who has now left the fashion house. Whether or not Delevingne’s modelling comeback is part of Slimane’s last hurrah at Saint Laurent, one thing’s for sure: the sharp black and white photographs are a reminder of how much Delevingne has been missed in the fashion world.
The model responded to the news of her campaign by tweeting, “I never quit.”
