She may have rocked McQueen at the 2012 Oscars, but something tells us Jessica Chastain will be suiting up in Yves Saint Laurent going forward.

The red-haired actress has been announced as the face of the label's upcoming Manifesto fragrance, which is slated to launch in France on August 27 before hitting U.S. shores in early 2013, Women's Wear Daily reports.

“We were won over by the very subtle strength of Jessica Chastain, her solar charm, her free mind,” says Stephan Bezy, international general manager of Yves Saint Laurent Beauté at L’Oréal. “Jessica embodies the quintessence of Saint Laurent’s femininity, a woman of her day and age, independent, determined, never where you expect her to be.”

Yves Saint Laurent is a brand that inspires me deeply,” adds Chastain. “Since its creation, the brand has conveyed strong values that I cherish, such as an unwavering commitment, absolute love, and feminine audacity. This new fragrance is an emblem of it all. I am [excited] to be part of this beautiful adventure.”

The Oscar nominee joins beauties like Opium's Emily Blunt in fronting the brand. Details of the campaign's imagery have yet to be revealed, but let's face it: It can't be nearly as scandalous as the one Sophie Dahl did, can it?
