Ralph Lauren’s new Woman is Jessica Chastain

Woman is the new fragrance from Ralph Lauren, due for launch in August around the world.

As previewed a few weeks ago (see story) Ralph Lauren is launching his first female scent in nearly a decade. The American designer has tapped two-time Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain as the face of his new fragrance, Woman.

The campaign was shot by Steven Meisel, and the TV commercial was directed by Philippe Le Sourd. Chastain donned an iconic black tuxedo and custom evening gown for the shoot, encapsulating the fragrance’s mix between “audacious power and feminine grace.”

Chastain, who has been outspoken about gender equality in the film industry, is the embodiment of the fragrance’s “Woman About All” slogan.

“I hope when we include female storytellers they will be more like the women I know in my day-to-day life,” she said during this year’s Cannes Film Festival. “They are proactive, have their own point of view, and don’t just react to men around them.”

The fragrance draws upon the versatility of masculine and feminine notes, with a composition of bold tuberose and rich, vibrant woods, while the design of the bottle took inspiration from the shape of a flask with curves and rose gold finishes for a softer touch.
