Joan Didion Stars In Céline's New Campaign

It may be too early to say this, but Céline just debuted the best campaign of 2015.

It's not the clothing nor the styling that makes this ad swoon-worthy, though, it's the model. Joan Didion -- yes, the 80-year-old iconic writer and truth-teller, is the star of the fashion house's Spring 2015 ad.

And while we're more used to seeing the likes of professional models, like Daria Werbowy, featured in Céline's ads, this move is an achievement not only because it's an amazing shot with an unconventional model but also because, well, it's Joan Didion. Despite the fact that Didion got her start writing for Vogue she is (understandably) far more recognized for her literary achievements than her sense of style.

Of course, she's not the only icon to ever star in a fashion campaign. Maya Angelou posed for Cole Haan back in 2013. But when you think of Céline's cool-girl aesthetic, Didion actually seems like a perfect match.

Looks like you've got huge, insightful, iconic shoes to fill, other brands.
