Joan Didion for Céline by Juergen Teller 1

Joan Didion who has been an out most celebrated American writer and secluded intellectual for decades- whose essay Why I Write continues to influence legions of authors, journalists, and poets, and whose book The Year of Magical Thinking written after the death of her husband has been wildly praised by every major literary publication – has just been featured in the new Spring 2015 campaign ad for Céline, the classic women’s line that perfectly embraces all that is Didion. We couldn’t have asked for a much more perfect marriage.

Photographed by Juergen Teller, Didion sits poised with her signature bob and awesome oversize shades.
