And The New Face Of Marc Jacobs Beauty Is… Winona Ryder

Marc Jacobs himself leaked a photo of the campaign

Winona Ryder and Marc Jacobs have had a long-standing association together – and now the two powerhouses have joined forces once again to create the Marc Jacobs beauty campaign for 2016.

Posting a ‘leaked’ shot from the campaign on his Instagram, Marc wrote: ‘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 pair have had a long friendship, with the Edward Scissorhands actress starring in the designer’s 2003 campaign right after her shoplifting scandal. 
Marc referred to their enduring working relationship on his Instagram too, posting a throwback photo of Winona and him in 2005.

Marc then also posted another throwback to when he and Winona were photographed as George and Martha from Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf.
If that’s just the first campaign shot, we can’t wait to see the rest.
What do you think of the partnership? Let us know @marieclaireuk
