Marc Jacobs has announced that actress Winona Ryder is the new face of his eponymous beauty brand for 2016 and Buro 24/7 Middle East has a sneak peek at the collaboration...

It's official! Winona Ryder is the new face of Marc Jacobs Beauty for 2016. Marc took to his Instagram account last night to announce the big news with a sneak peek snap of what to expect: "It is with great pride (and pleasure) that I 'leak' this image from our upcoming 2016 Marc Jacobs Beauty campaign. It stars my dear friend (of over two and a half decades), the stunningly beautiful and extraordinarily talented, Winona Ryder. I am reminded of one of my all time favourite films: The Last Year at Marienbad. The flawless cool, elegant and timeless chic of actress Delphine Seyrig has long been a reference of mine."

The Academy Award nominated movie star will be the leading lady in the brands' 2016 campaign, where she'll portray the iconic French actress Delphine Seyrig. Talking about taking on the role Ryder says: "What I love about Marc — and there are many things — is that we both have a very similar penchant for past eras, and the history of fashion and culture... He doesn't go for the cookie-cutter woman, for lack of a better expression."

The campaign has been photographed by David Sims and the collection will be available from February 2016.
