“The stunningly beautiful and extraordinarily talented” Winona Ryder is styled for the Marc Jacobs Beauty campaign to look like Delphine Seyrig from Alain Resnais's 1961 film Last Year at Marienbad.

As designer Marc Jacobs shared on Instagram: “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.”

“Marc is a friend of mine and I love the way he pays homage to the past and different eras without stealing and swiping,” Ryder told ETonline in October about her ongoing collaboration with the designer. She also appeared in his2015 Spring campaign, which also starred Cher and Willow Smith. “It’s totally flattering [to appear in his campaigns]"

Blaming social media for the current state of nostalgia, she explained:

"I did the campaign for Marc [Jacobs Beauty] and it was weird, because I was like, ‘Oh God, this is going to do the ageless thing again.’ It’s such a double-edged sword, because, it’s like, I want to be allowed to grow up. How do you win? If I don’t look ageless, I look haggard. Or if I look normal or whatever, then they’ll talk about how bad I look.”
