OMG love that u shot is blk/white so sexy love that he used short wig…..i am hairdresser…short hair is not for everyone…that said it’s the new modern looks…not punk ..but great cuts..but be careful to find a great stylist! bring photos!! do a hair story
Oh my GOD! I love this “moonlight” series … especially the first shot. I mean, the outfit is to die for. And this model’s face, and edgy haircut that perfectly offsets her strong jaw line – wow. Fierce.
Coats were great, not sure about the PJ inspired clothing? Hear he came out in PJ’s as well….I really like your black and white shots they support the mood he was trying to portray initially in his show…thank you!
The topless model kind of bugs me. Models not wearing bras under not-so-opaque clothing doesn’t even really bug me, but she looks like she’s doing some awful walk of shame. She has to keep her hand over her boobs the entire time? Maybe it’s my puritan coming out, but I feel like at best it’s just kind of off-putting, and at worst it’s asking more of that model than should have been asked. That being said, I generally do really like Marc Jacobs.
Agree totally. All the other pix are fine and I’m experiencing a huge nostalgia rush for my old 1980s hair and makeup here, but the semi-nude one leaves a sour taste in my mouth. When it doesn’t work in a professional still photo, what must it have looked like in the flesh?
Am I the only one who sees the huge Liza Minnelli influence in this show. I’m surprised no one else mentioned that. These all look like modernized versions of (Halston) things she wore during the Cabaret/Liza with a Z period.
The shoes look silly. They are so high arched that you can tell the girls are bending their knees to walk. They just look kind of foolish. Everything else loks OK. The photos are the real cool thing here.
I remember when Marc was doing those bubble sweaters back in the late 80s…girls were dying for them. He then had his original label for awhile which not a lot of people remember and it never quite worked…the collections were full of colorful kitschy Americana and it was not ‘chic’ at all- whimsical would be a generous way of describing it (a slip dress with Freud’s profile printed on it…a Freudian-slip dress, get it?). He lost his first backers and disappeared for a few years. Then, quite suddenly, he came back in the early 90s with a stark, minimalist collection of very expensive, utterly restrained clothes made in Italy that knocked everyone on their ear…from there he has never had any long-lasting missteps. I give him kudos for managing to stay so important for so long. He’s still cute too.
Perhaps I’m crazy, but is there an abundance of leg hair in these pictures? I generally love black and white, but maybe here – combined with the moon lighting – it’s created the illusion of leg hair? Or did Jacobs have these poor girls walk topless down the runway AND grow out their leg hair for 6 weeks before the show…?
