Supermodel Jerry Hall has once again become the face of the Parisian fashion house, fronting the Saint Laurent Spring 2022 ad campaign in selected pieces from the collection by Anthony Vaccarello.
Hall wears the draped jumpsuit in velvet jersey featuring a boat collar, long sleeves, and fitted pants with a matching velvet belt that features a tubular buckle. The slightly exaggerated shoulders and sparkle from the belt added a touch of 80’s rock’n’roll glamour to the look. Crafted in luxe crushed velvet that was popular in the ’60s and ’70s, Saint Laurent gives the heavy fabric a lighter, modern edge with this sexy, skin-tight silhouette that is reminiscent of a catsuit.
The jumpsuit may be something that has made its way into the closets of many fashion enthusiasts in recent years, but an item of clothing that holds significance to the house of Saint Laurent. The brand’s namesake designer took the more voluminously shaped garment that was worn by aviators and transformed it by altering its shape to follow the curves of the female form. This resulted in a chic, fresh, elegant, and empowering silhouette for women back in the day. The timeless nature of his designs has made them relevant to this very day.
In a close-up shot, Hall is seen wearing accessories from the collection. A pair of large, square earrings adorned with a glass cabochon center and cat-eye-shaped sunglasses. The cat-eye sunglasses feature a thicker, rounded frame and temples, putting a cool, fresh twist on the popular ’50s trend.
Hall is photographed modeling the double-breasted tailored dress in grain de Poudre, a fabric commonly used to create tailcoats and tuxedos. The dress features a peaked lapel and two welt pockets with a flap as the classic tuxedo blazer is transformed into an ultra-chic, little black dress for the modern era.
