Joni Mitchell, 71, Stars in Saint Laurent's Latest Campaign (PHOTOS)

Posted on

Watch out Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss. There’s a new group of models in town — female artists over 70. First, literary figure Joan Didion landed a Céline campaign at 80. Now, Joni Mitchell is following suit with a new Saint Laurent collaboration.

The iconic singer-songwriter, 71, fronts Saint Laurent’s Music Project campaign, which in the past, has tapped other major musicians including Marianne Faithfull, Courtney Love, Marilyn Manson and Kim Gordon. The ads — featuring Mitchell strumming her guitar — were shot at her home in Bel Air, Calif., by Saint Laurent Creative Director Hedi Slimane. And of course her outfit is effortlessly cool. Mitchell wears a tunic from the brand’s Folk collection (fitting for the “Woodstock” singer, right?), classic YSL Fedora and a leather cape that Slimane made for her.
