Jane Birkin is the new face of Saint Laurent's Le Smoking tuxedo campaign. Shot by creative director Hedi Slimane, the images featured the fashion icon posing in the brand's signature tux that was created by Yves Saint Laurent in 1966.

Slimane is no stranger to casting iconic muses for his campaigns – in the past, he has tapped stars such as Courtney Love, Joni Mitchell, Marianne Faithfull and Kim Gordon to front the brand's campaigns.
