Actor Finn Wolfhard has become the latest ‘Stranger Things’ star to dip their toe into the fashion industry after landing an impressive Saint Laurent campaign.

On Monday, the French fashion house announced that the 16-year-old is the new face of its men’s AW19 collection via Instagram.

In a series of monochrome images shot by legendary photographer David Sims, the Canadian actor looks exceptionally cool in a skinny mod-inspired suit, leather jacket and retro sunglasses.

Fans were quick to praise the campaign with many comparing Wolfhard to a young Bob Dylan.

“He’s a baby Bob Dylan,” one social media user wrote.

Another agreed, adding: “Bob Dylan vibes! Bless this photoshoot and collaboration!”

His debut shot at modelling certainly deserves all the applause emojis he can garner with the star following in the sartorial footsteps of buzzy names including rapper ASAP Rocky and fellow actor Keanu Reeves.

But he isn’t the only Netflix name to swap the silver screen for a magazine editorial.

Co-star Millie Bobby Brown has long been hailed a fashion muse after making her modelling debut in a Calvin Klein campaign back in February 2018.

The 15-year-old has since become a front row fixture often photographed rubbing shoulders with the likes of Winona Ryder, Brooke Shields and Paris Jackson.

In July 2018, the actress announced via Instagram that she has joined the Moncler family.

The latest Saint Laurent news further proves that the fashion ‘It’ crowd is getting younger with a number of Netflix starlets securing major deals.

At the AW19 collections, Fendi targeted Generation Z with ‘Stranger Things’ star Noah Schnapp, 14, perched front row alongside 18-year-old Kiernan Shipka of ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ fame.
