Winona Ryder Fronts Marc Jacobs Beauty Campaign, Looks Amazing
This just in: apparently Winona Ryder has discovered the secret to staying youthful...forever. Marc Jacobs recently "leaked" a sneak peek of his 2016 beauty campaign featuring the actress via his Instagram account, and all we can say is WOW. A quick count says it's been 21 years since Ryder starred in Reality Bites, but you wouldn't know it—she's still as fresh-faced as ever.
Modelling a stunning winged cat-eye, Ryder's makeup was crafted by makeup legend Diane Kendal using the Marc Jacobs Magic Marc'er Precision Pen ($44), Velvet Noir Mascara and new Nudes Sheer Lip Gel ($44).
According to an interview with Allure, Ryder felt honoured to be chosen by her friend Jacobs to front his new campaign. “What I love about Marc – and there are many things – is that we both have a very similar penchant for past eras, and the history of fashion and culture... He doesn’t go for the cookie-cutter woman, for lack of a better expression.” Fitting words since the designer called out the film Last Year at Marienbad as inspiration for the shot.

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
