It is the beginning of 2015 when a woman with grey, sleek short hair, an elegant black dress and huge sunglasses became the face of the Céline campaign. A campaign which appears special not only with regards to the lady’s age but even more because of her mesmerising aura. The woman is Joan Didion, one of the most important American authors and icon of her time. Two years later the same woman has turned into a role model for a new generation. In 2017 everybody seems to know her name. She stars on the cover of the coffee-table book “Legendary Authors And Their Style” by Terry Newman, a year earlier in Germany a selection of essays was published in a book called “Sentimentale Reisen” and this October, Netflix finally released the documentary “The Center Will Not Hold,” which already is proposed to be one of the most breathtaking biopics of the year.
