Jessica Chastain Dazzles in YSL Manifesto Ad
Quickly climbing the ranks in the high-end world of beauty, Jessica Chastain stars in the just released promotional clip for Yves Saint Laurent's new scent Manifesto.
Under the helm of "Drive" director Nicolas Winding Refn, the spot shows the A-list redhead creating a piece of art with the help of purple paint, which later goes to auction.
After nabbing the winning bid last minute, Chastain's character links up with a handsome brunette gentleman whom had also taken interest in the item.
As for her role with YSL, the actress told press, "Having Jessica Chastain be the ambassadress of the fragrance — it’s a very vulnerable thing. It’s not something I really thought that I would do before until, of course, Yves Saint Laurent called. If you’re going to do something like this, it’s a very big deal to do it for Yves Saint Laurent. But what it does is it makes you very vulnerable because you don’t have a character to hide behind.”
“Every person looks at a painting and has their own emotional reaction to it, their own interpretation. It’s the same with perfume. You smell something, you have your own emotional reaction. There are many layers to a painting, many ideas — and the same with a perfume.”
