Yves Saint Laurent posted an ad on a French casting website, Castingdujour.com, looking for 130 tall, elegant, "beautiful" people between the ages of 25 and 50 to be extras in a new ad campaign. If selected, each extra will be paid 150 euros (about $200) for a one-day shoot near Paris next week, which is about what real models get paid for Vogue shoots, so those selected should consider themselves lucky.
