Fantastic to see the great Joan Didion, at 80, appearing as the face of Celine. She has however modelled before. Back in 1989 she was pictured with her now sadly deceased daughter Quintana for Gap. Didion’s memoir about the loss of Quintana – Blue Nights – was published in 2011. Just a couple of years earlier Didion had published the incredible Year of Magical Thinking about the death of her much loved husband John Gregory Dunne.
