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.
