A little over a year ago, Sam Smith was almost unheard of.
Things have certainly changed for the sing-songwriter as of late. Not only has he just announced that after a period of time off from music due to a vocal cord surgery, he also had some other major news.
Sam is going to be starring in a major high fashion ad campaign. The 23-year old announced on Twitter that he is going to star in Balenciaga’s upcoming 2015 men’s ads. We are very excited.

He also teased a project ‘#balxsamsmith’. Now that is a collaboration we can get behind completely.
The previews which Sam shared yesterday show him as backlit in a very dungeon-type looking dark basement. A little out there, but this is fashion after all, if it doesn’t raise eyebrows it won’t impress.
This past year has been a bit of a whirlwind for Sam. In addition to cleaning up at the Grammy awards and taking home four trophies, he went through a massive physical change too.
Sam documented his impressive weight-loss on his Instagram page, and his hard work certainly paid off. After losing three stone overall, he credits the author of Eat Nourish Glow for “changing his life”.
Just days ago the singer announced on Instagram that he was back to full health and would be returning to live performances very soon. The 23-year old shared an update with his fans and is supposed to return to live shows in Kentucky this Friday.
So just want to keep everyone in the loop; I have been in Boston the last few days to have a check up on my throat, before I embark on my American tour. MY THROAT IS LOOKING BLOODY FANTASTIC. So it's amazing news. So happy. It's going to be a really tough month of shows but I can't wait to see you all, and pray it's going to be a smooth ride. LET'S GO
We’re so happy that Sam is back to full health and we’re very excited to see what his latest fashion venture will bring into our lives. Watch this space!
