Winona Ryder was the star of some of our favorite eighties and nineties movies such as “Beetlejuice”,“Dracula”, “Girl Interrupted”, the beloved “Edward Scissorhands” and one of the best frenemy movies ever “Heathers”. She was on the A-list, and even dated the ever elusive, and still coveted actor Johnny Depp (He had her name tattooed on his arm for a little while).
Since her shoplifting scandal in 2002, Winona has flown under the radar. It seemed as though she hit a wall that many celebrities do when the public eye becomes too much.In the past few years, she has garnered small roles in feature films such as Spock’s mother in “Star Trek” and Beth Macintyre in “The Black Swan” while focusing more of her time in independent film and television.
Stepping out of her comfort zone with the help of a long time friend Marc Jacobs, Winona is taking on a new, and far more glamorous role than her recent television stints.
It was revealed last night that Ms. Ryder is the new face of Marc Jacobs Beauty. The designer took to his Instagram account on Monday night to reveal this beautiful picture of the actress using his signature cosmetics line.
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
Despite her almost reclusive nature in recent years, Winona’s timeless beauty is undeniable in the first photo of the campaign, and we are anticipating more effortlessly beautiful looks on the actress as more photos are revealed.
