Patti Smith to front new Saint Laurent campaign

Punk poet Patti Smith has been unveiled as the face of the spring 2020 Saint Laurent campaign.
Bosses at the French fashion house have hired photographer Steven Sebring to shoot the 72-year-old legend in her native New York City later this month (Sep19), according to Page Six Style.
Sebring has a special relationship with the Because the Night singer, as he first photographed Patti in 1995 for Spin magazine and has been producing Dream of Life, a biographical documentary about her, for over a decade.
Patti is the latest in a string of edgy rockers to model for the brand, with Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson previously fronting campaigns for the high-fashion label.
