Jessica Chastain Is The Face Of YSL's New Fragrance

Yves Saint Laurent has confirmed that Jessica Chastain will be the face of their new fragrance, Manifesto, which will launch in France this August. (We're guessing it wasn't a coincidence that the star wore vintage YSL to the premiere of Madagascar 3 last night).

Speaking about her new role, Chastain said, "Yves Saint Laurent is a brand that inspires me deeply. Since its creation, the brand has conveyed strong values that I cherish, such as unwavering commitment, absolute love and feminine audacity. This new fragrance is the emblem of it all. I am thrilled to be a part of this beautiful adventure".

So what can we expect from the scent itself? A fruity blend of jasmine, lily of the valley, blackcurrant, cedar, sandalwood, vanilla and Tonka bean.

Look out for the new fragrance and Jessica's YSL campaign from 27 August, and for this month's best beauty buys, see our round-up of June launches below:
