In honor of Marc Jacobs’ 50th birthday today, we’re taking a look back at the designer’s most iconic moments. We’ve collected stand-out moments to celebrate Jacobs’ birthday in style, from his infamous grunge collection at Perry Ellis to his instant runway hits to the, ahem, underage model controversy.
Marriage equality has been the issue on everyone’s lips this week, as the Supreme Court justices hashed out the implications of the Defense Of Marriage Act in oral arguments yesterday in Washington, DC. But while we will have to wait until June for the final rulings on the challenge to Proposition 8, in the meantime we’re taking a look back at the weddings, engagements, protests, arguments, and public displays of support we’ve seen in the fashion industry in the past few years.
Who’s your favorite Irish celeb? Mine’s Sinead. Hey, we might as well get it all out now.
We don’t totally buy that the ladies of the night trolling the streets of Paris are buying their lingerie at Louis Vuitton, but a new promotional film for the brand’s Fall / Winter 2013 collection seems to indicate so.
It’s the last day of Paris Fashion Week, and what better way to start it off than with a livestream of the Louis Vuitton fall 2013 runway show bright and early at 4 AM EST? Well, we’ve got your front row seat right here.
After adding Creative Director of Diet Coke to his already lengthy resume, Marc Jacobs has unveiled the final results of his collaboration with the company: some pretty jazzy soda cans.
After seeing so many half-naked ladies on the runway and red carpet, we’re kind of jaded to the sight of nipples, sideboobs, butt cheeks, and the like. But Marc Jacobs took nakedness to a whole new level at his fall 2013 show last night by putting 18-year-old Lily McMenamy, daughter of legendary model Kristen McMenamy, in a pair of high-waisted briefs and, well, not much else.
Three seasons ago, Hurricane Irene wreaked havoc on New York’s fashion week schedule, with brands like Marc Jacobs and Theyskens Theory rescheduling their shows in advance of the (as it turns out, completely over-hyped) storm. This time around, we can’t even blame Nemo!
Diet Coke has tapped Marc Jacobs as their new creative director — for 2013, at least. In past years, Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier have lent their names and design prowess to the soda company, but, according to WWD, Jacobs’ stint stands out through his ethos of “glamour and sex sells just about everything.”
Models have to be prepared to get themselves into some pretty strange situations on the job. But you’d think certain people would get a pass, namely Kate Moss, who, after 25 years of modeling, can pretty much say “no” to whomever she so pleases. Victoria Beckham likewise doesn’t strike us all that easily persuadable. And yet, Juergen Teller has captured both women in less than glamorous poses. How did he do it?
Back in 2011, Marc Jacobs caused a bunch of hullaballoo with his Oh, Lola! fragrance ad featuring Dakota Fanning, which was banned in the UK for “sexualizing a child“. Fanning hasn’t said anything about the banned ad — until Glamour‘s March issue.
These days, Victoria Beckham comes in just behind Anna Wintour on the list of people we would least expect to see leaving the house in knockoff designer duds. But not so back in the early aughts, before Beckham had truly exploded on to the fashion scene, and was photographed while carrying her son and *gasp* a fake Louis Vuitton x Stephen Sprouse graffiti handbag.
Marc Jacobs announced that he was in the early stages of launching a cosmetics line back in April, and the only detail we had was that the line would be possibly sold at Sephora. Well, now we know a bit more.
It doesn’t look like Marc Jacobs‘ apartment woes will be over anytime soon. He was hoping to move back into his West Village apartment at Superior Ink after hiding out uptown at The Mark to escape from Hurricane Sandy, but that could actually take longer than he expected.
Hurricane Sandy has forced downtown fashion folk like Anna Wintour, Carine Roitfield, and Marc Jacobs to seek refuge uptown. Jacobs was caught by TMZ paparazzi in the Upper East Side this weekend while walking his dog and smoking a stoge, and he revealed the state of his West Village digs.
To think: only seven short months ago Marc Jacobs‘ name was still being bandied about as a possible replacement for John Galliano at Christian Dior. Now, of course, Raf Simons is firmly settled into the role with two collections under his belt and Jacobs is busy riding up and down escalators with his troupe of models at Louis Vuitton, but under different circumstances, the Marc/Dior pairing may have actually come to pass.
