Robin Wright's New Role: The Face of Gerard Darel

01/15/2010 at 04:00 PM ET

Sometimes starting over means going back where you’ve been. For Robin Wright, that means modeling. After weeks of internet speculation and teasers, Wright debuted this week as the latest and surprising new face of French leather goods manufacturer Gerard Darel. Demonstrating her self-proclaimed “new beginning,” the ad shows the Private Lives of Pippa Lee actress in an unusually intimate, deeply effecting portrait. With her divorce after 13 years of marriage to actor Sean Penn proceeding, Wright stepped forward in November, and the result is this behind-the-scenes clip, capturing her session with celebrated photographer Peter Lindbergh. Following actress Mamie Gummer, singer Charlotte Gainsbourg and supermodel Stephanie Seymour as faces for Gerard Darel, Wright’s campaign for the firm’s Spring-Summer 2010 line was shot in New York, according to French newspaper Le Figaro’s Madame. “Her selection,” the paper resolves, “shows perfect timing in view of the news involving the actress’ personal life.”–Peter Mikelbank

Jarod,

You’re entitled to your opinion, but I must say I don’t agree. Robin Wright had a promising career when she married Penn who clearly held her back and she ended up being the primary care giver. I doubt she regrets having been home with her children, but I am sure she is pleasantly surprised with the recent offers coming her way. We will be seeing more of her. She has done great diverse work in film: The Pledge, White Oleander, State of Play, Unbreakable, Moll Flanders, Forrest Gump, Message in a Bottle, The Princess Bride……

I’ve always thought she was a very attractive person, compelling and real. And a very good actress too.

Robin Wright heavy eye makeup in this shoot makes her look so much older. She is one of those classical beauties that doesn’t need any shadow or eyeliner.

She looks so so sad and somehow the lighting is a little unflattering, perhaps she shouldn’t have frowned the whole time….I think she’s a wonderful actress and naturally beautiful. This video doesn’t do her justice.
