JOAN DIDION FOR CÉLINE
Over the past few years fashion houses have celebrated the sophistication, wisdom and grace of older women with Lanvin, Dolce & Gabbana and now Céline picking more mature women to front advertising campaigns. For SS15 Céline have chosen 80-year-old American author and legendary literary journalist Joan Didion which comes as a surprise as the revered writer typically shies away from the fashion spotlight. Posing chicly in a pair of Céline black sunglasses and long-sleeved top, Didion emanates understated cool and elegance in the image shot by Juergen Teller.
In another SS15 campaign image, the French fashion house have once again enlisted Phoebe Philo’s longtime muse, Daria Werbowy, who has modelled seven Céline campaigns to date. Effortlessly cool Daria and Didion are the perfect Céline pin ups, and just when we thought the brand couldn’t be any more covetable this new campaign has won as over as arguably the best ad of the season.
