The two masked French gentlemen who make up the iconic band known as Daft Punk are the latest musicians to star in Saint Laurent's Music Project campaign. The band unveiled details about its upcoming album, Random Access Memories, in a video screened Friday night at Coachella. In it, they, singer Pharrell Williams, and guitarist Nile Rodgers are seen wearing sequined tuxedo jackets — Saint Laurent Black Glitter "Le Smoking" Jackets, in official parlance — created by Hedi Slimane. On Saturday, the house released photos of the duo wearing the jackets and uploaded another video to YouTube that features additional photos of the performers in their sparkly stage wear. Daft Punk has been working with Saint Laurent since Slimane's debut collection for the house, which was shown last October. The duo created a 15-minute soundtrack for Slimane's Spring 2013 show. They join Marilyn Manson, Courtney Love, and a number of other musicians who've been featured in the Music Project campaign. Take look at Daft Punk's video below and find their ads here in the gallery.

Not content to be the gorgeous face of just one beauty brand, model Cara Delevingne has signed on to be the face of Yves Saint Laurent Beauté's new Baby Doll mascara, according to WWD. The new formula, which will premiere exclusively on yslbeautyus.com on March 20, is the latest addition to Yves Saint Laurent Beauté's Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils franchise. At launch, it will be available in black, blue, brown, and violet.
Cara, who recently walked in the Saint Laurent Autumn Winter 2013 show, appears in the '60s-inspired campaign donning an all-black Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane ensemble. The single- and double-page advertisement was shot by Terry Richardson, but the model was recently snapped by another famous face. Karl Lagerfeld stepped behind the lens to capture Cara for Melissa Magazine, WWD reports. Cara also recently signed on to be the face of Burberry Body Tender.

Call it Seattle by way of Saint-Germain. The Saint Laurent Autumn Winter 2013 took a detour into "California grunge," with creative director Hedi Slimane filling the runway with babydoll dresses, slashed leather leggings, flannel shirts, and embellished buckle boots. The YSL signatures were cleverly woven into the collection — "Le Smoking" was a tough elongated tuxedo jacket over a mini, the iconic fur chubbies turned into voluminous fur jackets draped sexily over dresses, and sparkling fishnets (even on full bodysuits) winked at traditional French dressing. We bet that front-row fans like Jessica Chastain and Kirsten Dunst will be snapping up the perfect leather coats — a sharp double-breasted trench was a standout — and the flat boots that accompanied many of the looks. Did we mention the army of black-leather-mini-clad models that came out at the very end of the show? Cool girls from coast to coast, from continent to continent, will be rocking those come Winter.

Jennifer Hawkins led a bevy of beauties down the runway at last night's Myer Autumn/Winter 2013 Collection Launch at Mural Hall in Melbourne. Alexandra Agoston, Louise Van de Vorst and Alice Burdeau were among the models to join Jennifer in showcasing the latest and greatest Winter wares available now at the department store.
The makeup look for the evening's event was all about the "Flirty Sixties Flick", created by Natasha Severino, Yves Saint Laurent Australian Make-up Associate. "The makeup inspiration for Myer Autumn/Winter 2013 came from the subtle influence of the '60s seen throughout 'The Edits'. Peplum skirts, Winter florals and leather silhouettes all play homage to the swinging '60s," says Natasha.
"The black eyeliner is prominent over the entire lid and is very matte in texture, juxtaposing the luminous, polished, dewy skin. Brows are sculpted and groomed, whilst cheeks are softly flushed and dewy. A barely there mouth elegantly finishes this modern, wearable look."
