Stefano Pilati has recruited Schiffer for YSL's spring/summer 2009-10 campaign. The German supermodel seems to be on a winning ticket at the moment, putting in a repeat performance at Salvatore Ferragamo for spring, as well as a new gig at Dolce & Gabbana.

It doesn't look like the poor economy is stopping fashion houses from dipping big into their pockets for supermodels.
