Marc Jacobs’ Campaign Corpse Was Actually Just “Sunbathing”

“Everyone thinks I’m the dead girl..."

“Everyone thinks I’m the dead girl..."

Natalie WestlingNatalie Westling has only been modeling for six months, but the 17-year-old from Arizona has already landed covetable fashion gigs. The first time she ever strutted the catwalk she was opening Marc Jacobs’ spring/summer 2014 show. The designer was clearly impressed as he later cast her in that season’s campaign. You may recognize her as that fiery red-haired corpse laying next to Miley Cyrus.

“Everyone thinks I’m the dead girl from the Marc Jacobs campaign…,” she said to i-D. “I mean it was cool, having the opportunity to work with David Sims and be in the Marc Jacobs campaign and working with Katie [Grand] and Miley was a huge honor, it was amazing. I had a lot of fun on set, I did get a lot of reactions of like “oh, Natalie’s dead because of Miley,” and all these different things but I still got pretty good press from it.”

So why exactly was Westling asked to lay down?

“Not sure… I guess I was like… sunbathing?” she said. “I don’t know! David was like “lay down and look like you’re sunbathing,” so I guess that’s where they were taking it but no one else saw it that way!”

Sunbathing huh? Sounds like a perfect modeling job to us. Head to i-D to read more about Westling’s neon red mullet and her time spent with Hedi Slimane.
