Former Girls frontman Christopher Owens models in new YSL fashion campaign
Former Girls frontman Christopher Owens is to feature in the new campaign for fashion house YSL.

Owens features in designer Hedi Slimane's debut campaign for Yves Saint Laurent – which from October 1 will be renamed as Saint Laurent. The black and white image above is the first of 15 images of the singer set to be released from the campaign, which are photographed by the designer himself, Vogue reports.

Back in July, Owens announced that he was leaving his band Girls. In a statement on the website on the San Fransisco band's label Turnstile, Owens cited personal reasons for his decision.

In a statement, he wrote: "My decision was not easy to make. I am leaving Girls. My reasons at this time are personal. I need to do this in order to progress. I will continue to write & record music. More will be announced soon. I thank you all for everything."

Girls played their biggest ever UK headline show at London's HMV Forum on May 28. You can read NME's review of their last album, 'Father, Son, Holy Ghost' here.
