The fashion forecast is pointing toward all things sporty, and the latest shoe craze provides further proof of the phenomenon. The slip-on sneaker is the new It shoe, making its way on the street style scene and straight into our closets. Go luxe with Marc Jacobs's and Givenchy's printed lace and leather renditions, or play it cool in Vans's classic checkerboards. Finish the look with cropped trousers or a flirty miniskirt for an effortlessly cool take on the throwback trend.
"It all started with my Bull Terriers," Marc Jacobs said of his many tattoos (he's up to 33 at this point) in a New York Magazine story about how tattoos have infiltrated not only fashion, but also popular culture at large.
To accompany this story — featured in the magazine's Fall fashion issue — there's a generous collection of photographs featuring a shirtless Jacobs with close-ups on some of his tattoos: the word shameless over his heart, the red M&M, and the Muscle Man Marc doll inspired by an episode of South Park are all spotlighted. Writer Amy Larocca, who interviewed Jacobs, posits that Jacobs jumped ahead of the curve when he started getting his tattoos.
And to reflect how popular getting inked is today, Jacobs's tattoo artist Scott Campbell covered his wife, actress Lake Bell, in a giant and rather strategically placed fake rose tattoo for the cover of this issue. Bell, who doesn't have any real ink of her own, says these decorations are so common that "In a way, I think I am more novel in my absence of tattoos."
The tattooed version of Bell looks beautiful on the cover, but the image — due to her nudity in it — might not be safe for work. If you're in a safe place, then you can take a look at New York's Fall fashion issue cover here.
Marc Jacobs has just released his first-ever makeup collection, and needless to say, it's lived up to the hype. The line, available at Sephora, features everything from high-shine lip gloss to featherweight foundation — all encased in sleek, black-lacquered packaging.

Riding on the coattails of his highly anticipated makeup line, Marc Jacobs Beauty, which launches today, Marc Jacobs is taking yet another bold step into the cosmetics industry: the opening of his first store, dedicated entirely to beauty. Located at 385 Bleeker Street in Manhattan, the street where the other stores in Jacobs's mini empire are located, the beauty hub boasts all of the pieces from his makeup collection. Also available in-store will be Jacobs's collection of perfumes.
While this is the first beauty-centric store for Jacobs, Robert Duffy, president of Marc Jacobs International and the designer’s longtime business partner, doesn't rule out the possibility of more. "It depends on how it does," he told WWD. Duffy also hinted at the possibility of Jacobs expanding into other products, like furniture and jewelry. Aside from this new addition to Bleeker Street, Jacobs's beauty line is also available in a bevy of Sephora's brick-and-mortar stores starting today.
Model Edie Campbell is shown above in a shot from the highly anticipated Marc Jacobs Beauty ad campaign. The striking jewel-toned smoky eye was created by makeup artist Diane Kendal with the hair styled by Guido, two Fashion Week staples backstage. Photographer David Sims captured the stunning looks, which are sure to become iconic Marc Jacobs images, much like his other ad campaigns featuring stars like Victoria Beckham and Dakota and Elle Fanning and models like Karlie Kloss and Xiao Wen Ju.

Though it's hard to imagine a world without Instagram, the earth was still spinning before the photo sharing app. But what to do with all those BFE (Before the Filtered Era) shots?
Along came #TBT so we could look back on a younger Marc Jacobs prepping models for the Resort 2006 collections, reflect on what models like Karlie Kloss and Coco Rocha looked like as young (albeit beautiful) children, and return to the Studio 54 days as Diane von Furstenberg's plus one. Lets travel back in time, shall we?
