The announcement of Mitchell's role in Saint Laurent's campaign came hot on the heels of the sensation caused by the news about writer Joan Didion, 80, starring in an ad campaign for another fashion brand, Celine.
Slimane not just designed a leather cape for Mitchell, but also photographed her at her home in Bel Air, said The Hollywood Reporter.
In the past year, actresses Helen Mirren, 69, and Tilda Swinton, 54, have fronted ad campaigns for beauty brands L'Oreal and Nars.
