Timeless Cool: Joan Didion & Joni Mitchell fronting fashion ads

joan celine 2015Can you believe they are both over 70?

With Celine releasing their latest Spring 2015 ads with acclaimed author Joan Didion as the new face and Saint Laurent Paris using Joni Mitchell, it seems like there’s an emerging industry trend to cast recognised and well-respected figures as the new campaign faces. Looks like a sure-fire way to get lots of people talking on social media. These icons have fans from all over the world for decades,

Joan Didion is a famed writer whose first job was at Vogue in the 50s. She turned 80 last December. Joni on the other hand, is a well known folk singer and as you all know, Hedi Slimane is obsessed with musicians.

Could this be the game changer in fashion advertising? Maybe next is Meryl Streep for Prada? Who knows!
