PARIS — French actress Mélanie Thierry is to be the face of the next Yves Saint Laurent women’s fragrance, due out later this year, according to industry sources.
A YSL Beauté spokesman would not comment on the speculation.
Thierry is a swiftly rising star. She was on Saturday awarded a César (the French equivalent of the Oscars) in the “meilleur espoir feminine” (best up-and-coming female actress) category for her acting in “Le dernier pour la route.”
The 28-year-old has been in movies and in plays, including “Babylon A.D.” and “Largo Winch.”
The star-studded cast of YSL faces already includes the likes of Kate Moss and Vincent Cassel.
Meanwhile, it was announced Thursday that French singer and actor Marc Lavoine will front advertising for the Cerruti 1881 men’s fragrance starting in June. The scent was introduced in 1990.
In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries.
