Why Does Everyone Keep Talking About Cher's Age?
Cher is the star of Marc Jacobs' new ad, and the media seems to think she looks great ... for her age.
You're looking at the new face of designer Marc Jacobs: Cher. Everyone agrees that she looks amazing, but there's one fact many are talking about.
"You know who looks darn good, especially for age 69?" Kathie Lee Gifford said.
"Who?" Hoda Kotb asked.
"Cher," Gifford said.
"Model perfection at age 69," "Extra" anchor Mario Lopez said.
"Cher may be 69 years old, but check out her next career: modeling," a News 12 Long Island anchor said.
Why do reporters keep bringing up Cher's age? Yes, she is 69 years old, but that doesn't have a standing on how fabulous she looks in the ad.
But Jacobs — who attended this year's Met Gala with Cher — has used women of a variety of ages in his promotions before.
He used Miley Cyrus for his spring campaign in 2014.
And "American Horror Story" actress Jessica Lange was the face of his cosmetics line that same year.
And Cher isn't even the oldest celebrity model out there right now.
Seventy-one-year-old Joni Mitchell is currently doing ads for Yves Saint Laurent.
And writer Joan Didion stars in the French ready-to-wear brand Celine's promotions for its spring 2015 collection. She's 80 years old.
So perhaps we should just say that Cher looks stunning in the new Marc Jacobs ad. Period.
