Claudia Schiffer is back in the spotlight; the German model has been named the face of Yves Saint Laurent and we’re thrilled with the new ads.

The Spring/Summer 09 ad campaign was beautifully shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin under the creative direction of Stefano Pilati.

The stunning shot is the first of the campaign to be released, and will feature on the cover of YSL’s must-have Manifesto newspaper, now in its fourth season, which will be distributed on Valentine’s Day next year.
