Marc Jacobs and Lady Gaga are pals. We’re not gonna lie – that fact makes us a bit jealous, but we digress. The last time we checked in with the fashion designer of our dreams, he revealed how he picks out the celebs he uses as the models in his campaigns and given the fact that Gaga and him are such besties, we’d always imagine her to be a magical muse. Well, whether or not that happens, Gaga does have a 2012 tour to plan wardrobe for, leading us to wonder if she has reached out to Marc yet to design anything for the shows?
“We’re friends. No, no I haven’t spoken to her in a while,” he said when we asked him. “I think the last concert I saw her was in Paris, so I haven’t [spoken to her] in a while since then. Well, I haven’t seen her since then.”
Let's make it happen! Given all the awesome stuff these two have already cooked up together and the fact that they readily hang out with one another (at fashion shows and after parties and the show covers of magazines) we’re hoping to see something Marc Jacobs on Gaga during her "Born This Way Ball."
What do Kanye West, the Jonas Brothers, Mel Gibson and Marc Jacobs all have in common? Well, they've all been lampooned on "South Park."
Jacobs recently appeared on the show. Well, actually, a doll-likeness of him called Muscle Man Marc appeared on the show. And the famed designer told MTV News last week that he can't believe he was chosen to be a part of the episode, appearing alongside Cartman's other dolls at a tea party.
"It is the coolest honor ever that I will never ever… I can't imagine anything greater happening to me in this lifetime," he explained to us. "'I'm just a doll in Cartman's room, so I guess I'm not really a character, but I don't know. They've made fun of so many people and rightfully so."
When we asked Marc Jacobs about his always brilliant casting of celebrities for his cheeky clothing ads, we had no idea the hubbub that was brewing regarding a recent one starring Dakota Fanning.
You see, U.K.’s Ad Standards Authority found the Oh, Lola! ad featuring the 17-year-old to perhaps be a bit too cheeky, PEOPLE reports. In it, Fanning wears a pale blush colored dress, her legs outstretched in front of her as the bottle rests atop of them. It seems the placement of that bottle was a bit too much for the Authority who had this to say:
“The length of her dress, her leg and position of the perfume bottle drew attention to her sexuality. Because of that, along with her appearance, we considered the ad could be seen to sexualize a child.”
Well, regardless of what they have to say about that ad (which, by the way, we don't really see the big deal about), Jacobs did give us some insight into how he casts folks like Dakota and hinted that there was one recent celebrity who didn't want to play. It's kind of like a blind item from the most reliable source!
Read on to see what he had to say! Read More...
Well, I'm already back in NYC. Took a red-eye as soon as the show was done to be back for Fashion Week....yeah, I've had about 3 hours of sleep and I can barely believe that I've travelled across the country, did the VMAs and am in New York already getting ready to see the Marc Jacobs show...all in the last 12 hours.
2 highlights for me from last night:
1. As soon as I tossed to the big show, all of us (producers, stage managers, writers, camera men) huddled around the TV set on the pre show stage to watch the Britney performance. Of course, I ran out of battery on my camera, but the look on everyone's face was priceless. The gasping, the "oh-my-godding"......watching her teeter and totter on stage. SPEECHLESS!
2. Me running through the Palms with my luggage shoving and pushing the crowd, frantically looking for a ride to the airport. I ran over Ludacris with my roll-away luggage. PRICELESS! Sorry Luda!
Ok, fashionistas....I hope u approved of my outfit.....and here's some love from backstage at Marc Jacobs in New York.
