Marc Jacobs has a lot of love for bestie Winona Ryder. Not only did he cast her as one of the faces of his Fall/Winter 2015 collection, Jacobs has just announced that the actress is also the face of his eponymous beauty line. The designer took to Instagram to “leak” a first look at her campaign, accompanied with a lengthy caption about the inspiration behind the campaign – The Last Year at Marienbad starring Delphine Seyrig – and his admiration for Ryder’s talent. The ’80s teen icon is an absolute beauty in the released shot (that eyeliner is on fleek!) and we cannot wait to see more of campaign.
It is with great pride (and pleasure) that I ‘leak’ this image from our upcoming 2016 MARC JACOBS BEAUTY campaign. Photographed here by David Sims and styled by Katie @kegrand, it stars my dear friend (of over two and a half decades), the stunningly beautiful and extraordinarily talented, Winona Ryder. Mesmerized by this image and her look- created by Diane @diane.kendal (using our fine liner eye crayon, velvet noir mascara and new nudes lipstick) and hair by Guido @guidopalau I am reminded of one of my all time favorite films: The Last Year at Marienbad. The flawless cool, elegant and timeless chic of actress Delphine Seyrig has long been a reference of mine. The force of the surreal calm, and painstaking fetishistic polish of this film and its heroine are truly ‘ON FLEEK’ and continues to inspire me to date. No one I know could exude the adjectives I’ve listed as perfectly as Winona does… She does not model the look she gets into the role- and exudes it! A brilliant mind, talent, and physical beauty like no other, I am delighted to share this image of Winona with my IG fans and followers today. I’ll follow this post with a few more MJ/WR images from our past- To see more of the campaign, stay tuned! #4everwinona #marcbeauty
Jacobs also spent the day posting tributes to Ryder and their two decade-long friendship, affectionately referring to them as “MJ/WR” moments.
