YSL Manifesto Fragrance Jessica Chastain

The luxury house Yves Saint Laurent has chosen American actress Jessica Chastain (The Tree of Life, The Help) as the face of its new fragrance.

Mert & Marcus captured the redhead beauty with purple-painted hands, somewhat evoking the fragrance’s tagline, “Daring is an art”.

Called “Manifesto,” the new perfume will be available at the end of August in France, followed by a wider release in September.

Jessica Chastain follows in the footsteps of fellow actress Emily Blunt and supermodel Kate Moss as an ambassadress for the brand.
