We know it's early, but we have a candidate for the best ad campaign of the year: 80-year-old lady and legendary American author Joan Didion. For Céline. 

Break the Internet!

The image, which Vogue first ran Tuesday afternoon, comes like a late Christmas present after the brand released spring 2015 campaign images featuring art objects and a makeup-free Daria Werbowy. Photographed by Juergen Teller, Didion looks both impassive and immensely chic, like the second coming of that photo of Hillary Clinton wearing sunglasses and texting. 

While it's somewhat surprising that the author would pose for this kind of campaign, it also feels like it's opened a sub-basement on Céline's world of cool for us to enjoy. Please spend a few minutes absorbing the above image.
