Jessica Chastain Fingerpaints in YSL's Manifesto Campaign
Posted on September 14, 2012
Actress Jessica Chastain is the face of YSL's upcoming YSL Manifesto fragrance campaign. Jessica's hands are covered in purple paint in the campaign, which was shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. The floral oriental fragrance has notes of jasmine, bergamot, lily of the valley, sandalwood, vanilla, cedar, blackcurrant and tonka bean.
In the campaign Jessica plays an artist who fingerpaints with purple paint. Her painting is sold at an auction but Jessica's character is so passionate about her art that she buys her own painting at the auction. Jessica says in the second clip that the woman she plays feels an overwhelming desire to create. She will even paint in a white evening dress if the passion to paint overtakes her just as she is about to leave for a party. Take a look:
