What do Johnny Weir, Daphne Guinness, Iris Apfel, and Beth Ditto have in common? They all have a distinct style point-of-view, and now they all have MAC collections. WWD announced today that Beth Ditto is the latest quirky MAC muse.
The brand and the singer have a bit of a history: Ditto performed last September at the MAC store in NYC's Soho neighborhood for Fashion's Night Out, making it one of the top stops on everyone's FNO agenda. The match makes a ton of sense--MAC loves a strong makeup statement and so does Ditto. She's rarely seen without heavy, winged black eyeliner (sometimes purposely smeared all over her face). While we're still waiting for more details from MAC about the pieces in the collection, the campaign shot above gives a few clues. Black inky eyeliner? Check. Pastel nail art and fuchsia lips? Check. The collection will debut in June. (MAC also finally opened a Twitter account yesterday, so you can follow them @MACcosmetics for more scoop.)
WWD reports that Ditto will attend tonight's Gala Sidaction diner de la Mode as a guest of Estée Lauder (the parent company of MAC). MAC's donating 190,000 euros (~$246,620) to Sidaction, continuing their long tradition of supporting AIDS charities.
Will you channel Beth Ditto when the collection hits counters?
