Shortly after tweeting that the wonderful response to NARS signing Charlotte Rampling should encourage the competition to snag Helen Mirren, I saw the announcement that Jessica Lange is going to be the face of the new advertising for Marc Jacobs Beauty:
|WWD, February 27th|
I know that some people don't approve because it's obvious that Ms. Lange had some unfortunate work done. A friend claimed that by choosing Jessica Lange for this campaign Marc Jacobs is essentially celebrating taxidermied faces from the Joan Rivers school of beauty, which only and plays on women's insecurities. While I do get where she's coming from, I still think that if we want to see the end of age discrimination and the marginalization of women past child-bearing years, we need to widen the range of what we think of as a face for a beauty ad, and I'm thankful to Marc Jacobs for doing his part.
