Cher lands Marc Jacobs campaign

Marc Jacobs has announced his new campaign star, and it’s only the one, the only, the inimitable Cher. Yes, we do believe.

The designer made the announcement via Instagram where he posted a photo of the 69 year-old chart topper in the campaign, wearing a dramatic sequinned dress and tuxedo jacket, luscious black hair flying everywhere. It’s so fierce.

Jacobs captioned the photo,

“The amazing and beautiful CHER! Photographed by David Sims for our Fall/Winter campaign.. This is just the beginning…. More to come!!”

The pair attended the Met Gala in New Year together earlier this year.

It’s been a banner year for luxury labels using older women in their campaigns. We’ve already seen Joan Didion for Celine and Joni Mitchell for Saint Laurent. Who’s next? We’re hoping for Betty White to make an appearance.

The last photos taken of Marilyn Monroe are so beautiful

The last professional photos taken of iconic actress Marilyn Monroe are going up for sale. The photos were taken by Monroe’s friend, George Barris in 1962 on a beach in California, just three weeks before Monroe’s untimely death aged 36.

The pair met on the set of The Seven Year Itch. 

Barris had been planning to publish the photos in a book about Monroe’s life, Marilyn: Her Life In Her Own Words. It would be 25 years before a grief-stricken Barris would publish the photos in a limited edition run.

As The Daily Mail reports, the eight chromogenic prints are expected to sell for approx $1976 AUD at Bloomsbury Auctions in London on June 4.
