Marc Pulls A Miley
We were confronted with two big surprises when Marc Jacobs’ new campaign broke today. Firstly, he tapped David Sims, rather than his longtime collaborator Juergen Teller, to lens the Spring ’14 ads. And secondly, his close pal and campaign star, Miley Cyrus, is not shown in her typical, risqué form. There are no leotards, wagging tongues, or dancing bears here. Cyrus features alongside two models, and all are clad in Jacobs’ heavily embellished navy, black, and burgundy Spring ’14 collection. He even staged the ads on a dark beach, reminiscent of his acclaimed fashion show back in September. Cyrus’ messy hair (there’s not a twisted bun in sight), glowing skin, and moody facial expression finish off the look, and we must admit: It almost makes us forget about the whole twerking thing.
