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
From accidental nudes to sharp tongue rebuttals, Marc Jacobs knows how to deliver a juicy Instagram. His latest: A “leaked” image, photographed by David Sims, announcing Winona Ryder as the new face of his eponymous cosmetics line for Spring 2016. In addition to providing beauty junkies a quick product rundown for the look (which was inspired by The Last Year at Marienbad, one of Jacob’s “all-time favorite films,” and created by makeup artist Diane Kendal and hairstylist Guido Palau), the designer gave a touching tribute to his “dear friend” of over 25 years and has been celebrating Ryder throughout the day with throwback posts, including the one below from a Harper’s BAZAAR shoot.
