Author Joan Didion is the new face of Céline for spring 2015. It’s so invigorating to see this kind of a move by a luxury fashion label and it feels so right. It’s not surprising coming from the realm of Phoebe Philo, but it truly opens some incredible doors. We’ve watched the shift from early 90s supermodels to the gaunt grunge model era, to a heightened focus on actresses and celebrities (even reality television – ick). It’s incredible to see this year kickoff with a brand featuring a highly respected intellect. And, of course, it just makes me love Joan Didion and Céline even more (if that is possible). Maybe Vogue will follow suit and feature women like Didion rather than Kim Kardashian this year.
