CALLING ALL BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE: YSL’s Paris Casting!
Whoa… is this the mother-of-all opportunities or couture’s foray into reality TV? We’re not sure, but for those “tall, elegantly beautiful 25 – 50 year-olds” who are chosen to appear as extras in Yves Saint Laurent’s new ad campaign – this might just be their lucky break.
Yves Saint Laurent posted an ad on a French casting website, Castingdujour.com looking for 130 of the most beautiful people for a one-day shoot near Paris next week. The “models” – if selected – will each be paid a scant 150 Euros (or $200) – which is hardly the King’s ransom we assume models are given for appearing in such luxury brand (and luxury magazine) campaigns. Rest assured beautiful ones, you are not being under-valued by the market – modeling for Vogue brings most young lovelies just about that… if they’re lucky.
