She’s a singer, actor and ‘It Girl’ who man­aged to tran­scend her five min­utes of fash­ion fame and stretch it out for fifty years.

It’s easy to see why Mar­i­anne Faith­full is still cool: she’s funny, cre­ative, still looks great in a pea­coat and of course, had the orig­i­nal celebrity ‘wifey’ in Anita Pal­len­berg.

She was fre­quently on the cover of news­pa­pers, gal­li­vant­ing around Lon­don with Mick Jag­ger and gos­sip about her (like the time Keith Richards’ house was searched by police and Mar­i­anne was found inside only wear­ing a fur coat) only increased her glamour.

Fifty years later, she is the new face of Saint Lau­rent. Pretty good innings, huh?
