Marianne Faithfull, Helen Mirren, Tilda Swinton, Charlotte Rampling and Jessica Lange will agree when we say age is no limitation. Joining the decade's fashion and beauty muses is Canadian singer-songwriter and artist Joni Mitchell, who was photographed by Hedi Slimane for the Saint Laurent Music Project.

An enigmatic Joni wears Saint Laurent and gets into the zone with her guitar in the black-and-white photos taken at the Big Yellow Taxi singer's Bel Air, California home. The melancholic photos are simple but beautiful and, above all else, prove that she's still got the soul for music, even when you can't hear what she's playing.
