Seeing Abbey Lee walk for Saint Laurent last September was something. In recent years it has been her IMBD page notching up entries. Lining up for Anthony Vaccarello was something that came out of the blue for casual observers and ultimately made it seem so right. That casting was no accident, never is, which the brand confirmed in the last 23 hours ago when it posted to Instagram its Summer 2019 advertising campaign by Juergen Teller starring, wait for it, Abbey Lee. There have been teasers along the way, like an Instagram post from January by Abbey herself. That racy shot was of Abbey Lee alongside three other models from the waist down wearing sheer black YSL tights whet appetites for what would follow. And how!
