Marc Jacobs is getting the last word of New York Fashion Week, and you can watch him do it right here. We'll be live streaming the designer's Spring 2014 show, the last of New York's major runways and one of the most anticipated shows of the season, tonight at 8 p.m. EDT. Join us then to get a look at what is sure to be a great collection.
Backstage at Marc by Marc Jacobs, we got a first-hand look at the madness! Lead hairstylist Guido (for Redken) changed the hair at the last second, creating a heavy texture with oil for a grungy feel. And although Marc did use his new lacquers on the nails, Dick Page for Shiseido masterfully applied a vibrant blue to the models' lids — and that's it. For the manicures, Marc was inspired by the lacquered look of one of his coffee tables and used that as inspiration for his own polish collection. Go backstage with us for our preshow interview, and see all the beauty looks up close in our Marc by Marc Jacobs gallery.
The photos, which were shot by renowned photographer Peter Lindbergh, feature Williams posing with the brand's new W and classic Capucines bags and wearing Marc Jacobs's Fall 2013 ready-to-wear collection for the house. The brand said in a statement that it chose Williams for her enduring beauty because she picks challenging roles.
And with talent like hers, this surely won't be the last time we see Williams in a campaign like this. Get a look at the birthday girl — and all of the ads — here in the gallery.
What got between David Beckham and Calvin? Market research.
In the latest issue of Interview Magazine, Marc Jacobs talks to Calvin Klein about everything from his relationships with the various models he's cast in campaigns over the years to what it was like having a house on Fire Island in the '70s. But perhaps the most interesting part of the piece has to do with how Beckham almost ended up opposite Natalia Vodianova in one of Klein's underwear campaigns.
"The guy we used for those ads with Natalia was an athlete," Klein said. "We had discussions with David's people and they said, 'You can have him for the rest of the world, but you can't have the UK because he's too popular.' I said, 'We do business in the UK. What am I supposed to do there? Use someone else?' So that was a no. They weren't ready. So we got this other guy instead."
When Jacobs commented that "this other guy" looked great in the campaign, Klein said, "When you put Natalia with someone else, it just makes it. She's incredible."
The other guy was Beckham's fellow soccer player Fredrik Ljungberg, whom Klein must have thought was at least a little incredible on his own. Ljungberg ended up modeling for Calvin Klein from 2003 to 2007. Beckham, of course, made out OK in the world of underwear modeling. After appearing opposite his wife, Victoria, in an Armani underwear campaign, Beckham now stars in ads for his own line of personal furnishings for H&M.
Looking back at Marc Jacobs's catwalk shows, it's not hard to see how much he enjoys taking risks and changing things up. No two collections are ever the same — and whether it's through the use of exaggerated layers, futuristic shapes, nostalgic undertones, or feminine silhouettes, he always delivers an array of fresh, covetable pieces. We can trace Marc Jacobs's chameleon tendencies with just a glance at his two-plus decades worth of design, high-profile accolades, and side projects (read: Louis Vuitton). It's a wonder this man ever sleeps. Click through to see some of his most memorable looks from seasons past.
Over the years, Marc Jacobs's runway beauty looks have ranged from ultrafeminine to modernly minimalist to beautifully bare. He's experimented with white makeup, space-age hair accessories, and teased updos, but one thing remains the same: his models' hair and makeup always makes an unforgettable statement. In honor of his much-anticipated show coming up during Spring 2014 New York Fashion Week, take a look back at the best looks he's sent down the runway.
