Andie MacDowell has confessed to “stalking” Coach on social media before she was picked to front their latest campaign.

The 63-year-old actress and her daughter Rainey Qualley, a singer who performs under the name Rainsford, appear in the luxury brand’s new Mother’s Day campaign, and the Four Weddings and a Funeral star said she was determined to work with Coach.

“I’ve actually been stalking Coach on Instagram for a while, and I leave comments when I see something I like. Especially because, like everybody else, during Covid things have been kind of quiet. I’m at home, I live alone, so I like to look at fashion,” she told, revealing that she was impressed with the brand’s timeless pieces.

“With Coach, it was something I looked at as an older woman, and I was like, ‘I know this design, but there’s a twist to it.’ I thought it was charming yet still age-appropriate,” Andie added.

The mother-of-three also reflected on how her approach to fashion has changed over the years and shared that she tries to refrain from making comments about style choices as women get older.

“A few years ago, I was making some comments on what I thought was appropriate, but then I kind of wanted to take it back, because I don’t think we necessarily need to pass judgment on choices that you make as you get older,” the actress explained.

“I had said something about dropping the length of your dress, but it depends on the person. I just really enjoy fashion, and it’s something my girls and I have always enjoyed together.”
