Susan Sarandon might be 69 years old, but she’s as sexy as ever.
The actress shows off major cleavage in an ad campaign for designer Marc Jacobs’ Fall/Winter 2016 collection.
Jacobs took to Instagram to praise the actress, saying he was inspired by her performance in Rocky Horror Picture Show when deciding to embark on a creative career.
SUSAN, Seduction Like so many teenagers, I spent countless Friday and Saturday nights at midnight screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show at the 8th Street Playhouse (which is still standing!) and the Festival Theatre on 57th Street (which has long since closed). TRHPS was a coming of age and right of passage. It became an invitation (or excuse) to dress up and express oneself fearlessly. The cult classic made it cool for boys to wear sequins, satin and fishnets. I fell in love with Susan Sarandon’s onscreen portrayal of Janet during her “loss of innocence” scene by way of a crossdressing alien and her giddy, ecstatic rendition of, “touch-a, touch-a, touch me…” There was a subtle rebellious quality that I found in Susan with how she chose to play Janet and perhaps (as I now look back on it) her decision as a young actor to take a role in a film that challenged the notion of gender roles. In the hyper-stylized, gothic film, The Hunger, Susan’s portrayal as the lesbian love interest of vampire Catherine Deneuve was yet another progressive challenging of normal and a testament to Susan’s artistic exploration of boundaries. It was in my early days at Perry Ellis when I first had the privilege of meeting Susan. Her intelligence, courage, strength, conviction and ballsiness has always been so admirable to me. There’s an inherent seductive quality in Susan as a woman who always speaks her mind and an artist who takes risks. Her talent as an actress is one of extraordinary range, talent and power. The stunning Susan Sarandon by David Sims for our Fall ’16 ad campaign.
“I fell in love with Susan Sarandon’s onscreen portrayal of Janet during her ‘loss of innocence’ scene by way of a crossdressing alien and her giddy, ecstatic rendition of ‘Touch-a, touch-a, touch me…” Jacobs writes.
It’s not the first time an image of Susan Sarandon has caused a bit of a stir. Last month Starts at 60 reported on how she stole the show at Cannes, and her cleavage was the centre of attention at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in January.
