This week is "Saint Laurent D-week," as NYT fashion critic Vanessa Friedman puts it, aka the week Saint Laurent may reveal if designer Hedi Slimane leaves the brand or stays put.

The brand did share news on Wednesday morning, but it's just new campaign images featuring Cara Delevingne. The British model wears both a classic Le Smoking jacket and pieces from Slimane's rumored farewell collection — like that fur coat with dramatic shoulder pads.

The tweets have helpful factoids about Slimane's long-running collaboration with Delevingne, who's stepped away from modeling for movies but will still work for Saint Laurent and Chanel.

Cara isn't the only new face that Saint Laurent's been tweeting about this week. On Sunday, Saint Laurent revealed via Twitter that musician and fashion icon Jane Birkin is the star of its newest Music Project campaign.
