Photos of the new Marc Jacobs campaign have just dropped and WOW does Susan Sarandon look incredible in them.
At 69, it’s fair to say Susan has never looked better and the latest Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2016 ad campaign seems to clarify this.
Dressed in a striped ensemble with a very plunging neckline, the actress poses for the camera.
The designer himself took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the photos and Susan herself, with the following lengthy statement:
“SUSAN, Seduction: Like so many teenagers, I spent countless Friday and Saturday nights at midnight screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show at the 8th Street Playhouse (which is still standing!) and the Festival Theatre on 57th Street (which has long since closed). TRHPS was a coming of age and right of passage. It became an invitation (or excuse) to dress up and express oneself fearlessly. The cult classic made it cool for boys to wear sequins, satin and fishnets. I fell in love with Susan Sarandon’s onscreen portrayal of Janet during her “loss of innocence” scene by way of a crossdressing alien and her giddy, ecstatic rendition of, “touch-a, touch-a, touch me…” There was a subtle rebellious quality that I found in Susan with how she chose to play Janet and perhaps (as I now look back on it) her decision as a young actor to take a role in a film that challenged the notion of gender roles.”
He continued: “In the hyper-stylized, gothic film, The Hunger, Susan’s portrayal as the lesbian love interest of vampire Catherine Deneuve was yet another progressive challenging of normal and a testament to Susan’s artistic exploration of boundaries. It was in my early days at Perry Ellis when I first had the privilege of meeting Susan. Her intelligence, courage, strength, conviction and ballsiness has always been so admirable to me. There’s an inherent seductive quality in Susan as a woman who always speaks her mind and an artist who takes risks. Her talent as an actress is one of extraordinary range, talent and power. The stunning Susan Sarandon by David Sims for our Fall ’16 ad campaign.”
Susan is not the only famous face to star in the campaign. She features alongside figures such as Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne, Juno Temple and Courtney Love.
