Marc Jacobs Recruited Winona Ryder for His Latest Beauty Campaign

Inspired by the French film "Last Year at Marienbad," the shoot is cinematic and utterly gorgeous.

After casting Winona Ryder as one of the many famous faces in his fall 2015 campaign, Marc Jacobs has brought the actress back — and into softer focus — for his latest Marc Jacobs Beauty ads. The designer released the first image from the shoot, styled by Katie Grand and photographed by David Sims, on his Instagram on Monday night. If you can find anything bad to say about it, please comment below. Because between the '60s-esque cat-eye liner, sparkling green nail polish and luxurious, cinematic lighting, we don't see a single fault here.

As Jacobs explains in a long but remarkably informative caption (he's good like that), the campaign took notes from "Last Year at Marienbad," a French drama from 1962 and a personal favorite of his. 

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

#4everwinona indeed. This is one drawn-out Katie Grand campaign release that we really can't wait to see the rest of.
