Naomi Campbell: The New Face of YSL

August 11, 2014

Supermodel Naomi Campbell is returning to the fashion house that kick-started her catwalk career – she's to replace Kate Moss as the face of Yves Saint Laurent.

The British beauty has signed a $400,000 (GBP200,000) deal with the French designer and will front the company's autumn/winter 2008 campaign.

She says, “I'm blessed and grateful to be working with YSL again, a house that gave me a start in my career.”

Her first project for Yves Saint Laurent was in the 1990s when she was a fledgling star.

The move comes just days after she was charged with allegedly assaulting a police officer following her arrest at London's Heathrow airport in April.
