Model, musician, and photographer Staz Lindes is a woman of many talents. The daughter of Dire Straits guitarist Hal Lindes, and a member of riot girl band The Paranoyds, she's exquisitely beautiful and effortlessly cool. It's no wonder, then, that Yves Saint Laurent Beauty has tapped the 24-year-old as its latest makeup ambassador. "The great embodiment of the brand — brilliant artist, true to herself, and a symbol of her generation" said Stephan Bezy, International General Manager of YSL Beauty.

Born in London, discovered at a bowling alley in Santa Monica, and currently living in L.A., Staz is as chill as they come. "During my high school years, I'd copy the style of French actresses from the 60's," says Staz, "the very actresses that M. Saint Laurent had dressed. So I've always felt a natural affinity with the brand. To me, Yves Saint Laurent Beauty is youthful, cool, edgy, and luxurious — I couldn't be more excited to be joining it as an ambassador for their makeup."
