Marc Jacobs is killing it with his stellar selection of celebrity models (hi, Cher, Willow Smith, Anthony Kiedis, Anthony Keidis’ cool-ass son, and Debi Mazar!) Now, the designer has tapped none other than Winona Ryder to be the face of the brand’s Spring 2016 beauty campaign.
Jacobs “leaked” the news over Instagram yesterday, posting a photos with a caption that includes “Photographed here by David Sims and styled by Katie [Grand] 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 [Kendal] and hair by Guido [Palau.]”

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
The actress and designer do have a long history: Before she appeared in Jacob’s Fall ’15 ads and his Juergen Teller-shot campaign in 2003, Winona memorably rolled up to her infamous shoplifting trial that same year wearing a prim-and-proper Marc Jacobs dress.
We hate to be presumptuous, but this year could be shaping up to feature more Winona than ever (or at least more than we’ve seen lately.) It’s the 25th anniversary of “Edward Scissorhands,” she hinted that a “Beetlejuice” sequel isn’t of the question, and it’s being reported she’s set to star in a new Netflix thriller set in beachy Montauk, New York.
Let’s just say it together, shall we? Winona forever.
