Hedi Slimane coaxed not one but two of fashion's favorite ladies in front of his camera.

Though she's traded in billboards for the big screen, Cara Delevingne slid back into her metaphorical modeling shoes for a few hours last month at the request of friend Hedi Slimane, who photographed the 23-year-old for Saint Laurent’s latest couture collection — the fashion house’s first in 14 years.

According to the brand’s ALL CAPS Twitter feed, Slimane shot Delevingne in New York on Saint Patrick’s Day, where she also posed for photos in the brand’s Le Smoking jacket and La Collection de Paris.

In addition to pulling Delevingne from the depths of modeling semi-retirement, Slimane also tapped Jane Birkin for a photo series, capturing the legendary Parisian It girl at the Saint Laurent Couture House.

Birkin joins the prestigious list of Slimane's muses, which includes Joni Mitchell, Kim Gordon and Courtney Love, all of whom were captured in his signature black and white portrait style.
