Marc Jacobs: Nearly Nude for Harper's Bazaar!

Marc Jacobs: Nearly Nude for Harper's Bazaar!

Marc Jacobs goes shirtless in this shot for Harper’s Bazaar‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 47-year-old designer had to share with the mag:

On choosing to do a nude ad for his fragrance, Bang: “I’m not Tom Ford in terms of the grooming and the knowledge of clothes and the precision and perfection of getting dressed. There’s nothing I can wear in this ad that isn’t going to look ridiculous. At one point, I tried jeans and a shirt, and it didn’t work. So then Juergen said, ‘Take off the clothes.’ So I did, and that became the ad. I did feel good about the way I looked, so it was easy and—well, a guy looks better to me with no clothes on than with clothes! How’s that?”

On creating wearable clothes: “I’m not interested in making stuff for museums; I want the clothes to be worn. I don’t care if the girl sits on a curb in them after a party and they’re destroyed. I have to believe that there’s going to be a life for these things. Otherwise, I wouldn’t send them down the catwalk.”

On his fall collection: “At one point, I got really into this melancholy mood. The New York collection is really a reflection of my personal life. It’s not literally a reflection, but it definitely permeates. [For fall] we wanted to do something that was quite sober and very pretty in color, with just touches of yellow. It was the most beige and gray collection I’ve ever done in my life, really very little pattern. We looked at old photographs, and it wasn’t the images in the photographs that were interesting; it was the sepia tones, the blacks and whites and grays.”

  • boston61

    He is a repulsive slime ball. Dirty. Skanky. No taste. Whore looking. Embarrassment to the gay community.


    @boston61: YOU are embarrassing to the gay community you fkn FREAK! Do you ever have ANYTHING nice to say about ANYONE?! You’re so self-hating it’s embarrassing!

    @boston61: Smart, creative, classy, sexy, better than you.

  • boston61


    Ok Dr. Freud. Whatever you say. True, Marc can design a rocking purse but he presents himself in a sleazy fashion. There is nothing classy about tattoos, a man shaving his chest (gross), greasy sun damaged skin, and walking around half naked. This is NOT class. This is repulsive. Would you let him babysit your small children? I doubt it.

    @boston61: ‘Would you let him babysit your small children’ wtf? He’s not a babysitter! Lol! Where did that even come from man? I’d love to see what you’d look like Boston because all your comments are the antithesis of ‘classy’. You need to go get laid, a bit of filthiness would probably do you good. Though I doubt anyone would want to sleep with you. Marc is adorable you’re not!
