And she’s officially the Worlds Coolest Granny Legend Joan Didion has been hand-picked as the new face of Céline for S/S15, alongside French ballet dancer and choreographer Marie-Agnès Gillot and British model Freya Lawrence.The 80 year old author, essayist and bonafide is delighted to be part of an amazing experience. The definition of graceful ageing, Didion is lensed by Juergen Teller sporting a pair of sunglasses from the collection. Taking her infallible sophistication full circle, a portrait of a nonchalant Didion by Julian Wasser for Life magazine also served as inspiration for a shot in the brand’s resort campaign: model Daria Werbowy hanging out of a Corvette Stingray, shot by Tyrone Lebon.
The queen of effortless cool is the perfect choice for a brand like Céline, and she’s bringing that cool to a new documentary about her life – We Tell Ourselves Stories in Order to Live – directed by her nephew Griffin Dunne. As a writer for Vogue in the early 60s, she transformed fashion writing and infused her signature insight into a fruitful career as an author. Joan has achieved so much in her life&this is a great honour for her remarkable work.
