American author Joan Didion

is the new face of Céline, spring/summer 2015 campaign.

Ms. Didion is the celebrated writer of such singular works as

memoirist essay collection,  Slouching Towards Bethlehem  and

the novel and later film , Play It as It Lays.


This isn’t the first foray into

fashion “it-girl” status for Ms. Didion.

She and daughter Quintana Roo Dunne

were partnered on a shoot for Gap, 1989.


Kudos to Phoebe Philo, creative director of Céline

for featuring an accomplished, strong, articulate woman-

oh, and among her other milestones

Joan Didion is a vibrant octogenarian.
