Si, Giorgio Armani She is the dewy skinned face of highend skincare line SK-II but Cate Blanchett's porcelain looks and star appeal have snagged her another amazing beauty deal.

The 43-year-old Australian actress has been snapped up as the face of Giorgio Armani's women's fragrances, for a cool $10million.

Being the modern-day Grace Kelly that she is, Cate knows a thing or two about scent. Which is perhaps why the collaboration seem so natural.

"I like to spray my scent around me rather than directly on me," she before adding, "I don't think a fragrance should ever enter a room before a woman but certainly when a woman leaves a room, you want the residue to linger."

The new fragrance, out in September, smells timeless and warm created again by the wonderful Christine Nagel. The scent notes are cassis, chypre, musky wood, vanilla, rose de mai, freesia, patchouli, vanilla pure jungle essence and intense orcanox.

The shape of the bottle is inspired by art, one of Signior Armani's biggest passions. And who doesn't want to smell like Cate, si? Available from Giorgio Armani Parfum stockists nationwide from August 21, from [euro]55 for 30ml.

Manifesto l'Elixir, Yves Saint Laurent The gorgeous Jessica Chastain represents a femme fatale in the advertising campaign for the new Manifesto l'Elixir, an intense and passionate version of the original, characterised as "a veritable alchemy of dazzling sensuality."

The composition is floriental-woody, opening with a sour citrus blend of bergamot and mandarin. The combination of Arabian Sambac jasmine, heliotrope and tuberose absolute in the heart leads to the warm base of cashmere, vanilla and ambergris (ambroxan).

We love the campaign shots photographed by Max Vadukul. Dressed in moody black Saint Laurent and sporting some of the most exquisite autumn beauty looks - those perfectly lacquered plum nails, matching ombre'd lip and smoky lavender eyes - Chastain is everything a Hollywood icon should be, and more.

YSL Manifesto L'Elixir launches in September.
