Your Diet Coke cans are about to get a lot trendier. The cans are going to highlight women of feminine empowerment from the 80s, 90s, and today. The cans will also include popular Marc Jacobs designs, so let’s admit it now, we’ll be buying cans because of how awesome they look. We already loved the Lagerfeld and DVF bottles so of course we can’t wait to add Marc Jacob cans to our collector shelves. Jacobs told Women’s Wear Daily, “I think glamour and sex sells just about everything,” and he’s right.
When one of the most prominent fashion publications teams up with today’s hottest artist, something amazing is bound to happen. That is definitely the case with Rihanna’s November 2012 cover and spread of Vogue. As she seems to release new albums full of number one hit singles annually, it’s extremely appropriate for the ubiquitous star to appear on the magazine. The stunning songstress has already fronted the “fashion Bible” in April of last year, back when she had her flaming red hairstyle. This time, Rihanna is looking even more unbelievably perfect with her recently shorn pixie cut. Meanwhile, she discusses everything from her upcoming album, Unapologetic, to her rumored reconciliation with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in this issue of Vogue.
Until we read the compelling quotes in Rihanna’s interview, we’ll focus on the fashion. Annie Leibovitz provided her phenomenal photography style for the spread, while Rihanna wears feminine yet edgy pieces from designers such as Valentino, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, and Christian Dior Haute Couture. It’s safe to say that Rihanna has achieved icon status, and her Vogue cover and spread will certainly support that claim.
CFDA Fashion Awards nominee Marc Jacobs sat down with Adriano Sack for Interview Germany for an intimate session talking about his designs, personal life, drugs, perfection, and… check it out – a whole new Marc Jacobs, you’ll love it.

The industry’s most prestigious night, the Oscar’s of fashion, is upon us yet again. The CFDA Fashion awards take place Monday June 4th and will air on Style.com at 12 noon the next day. In preparation for the big night Crag McDean shot the nominee’s portraits, in ways that will distract you from the fact that they are the industry’s all powerful.
The fashion world does a lot to raise awareness about problems in the world we live, but no one can deny how accessibly Marc Jacobs awareness campaigns are.
Jacobs teamed up with the NYU Skin Care Institute a few years back and featured Tees with celebs sans clothes, warning to protect the skin your in. His latest collaboration is with more animated characters – the boys of South Park.
For $35, you can sport a nude Cartman, warning you to protect your “largest organ”. Humor and awareness – what a perfect duo! Shirts available in stores and online now!
Perhaps not for life, but Marc Jacobs says he is staying put! All the fashion world has been abuzz about whether or not Marc Jacobs would be stepping up as the head of Dior. As most know, the ex-designer for Dior, John Galliano, was removed from the label after a… “manic episode”?
Jacobs, who is the head of both Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton, recently explained to Vogue:
“There have been on-and-off conversations about Dior. I don’t know; maybe years from now, I may end up going someplace else, maybe Dior. But right now I am at Vuitton, and all that matters to me is that that’s where I am and I’m going to keep doing my thing.”
While we would love to see what Marc would do with Dior, Marc said “I am at Vuitton, and I am very happy there” – We’re happy you’re there too!
Puts the term “barely legal” into new definitons – Karlie Kloss, known best for print campaigns for “Lola” – Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta and Dior, who is now officially 18, will be walking in this years Victoria Secret Fashion Show at the end on November.
Recently, there has been some debate about how ‘sexy’ Kloss had been portrayed while still a minor. But now that she is an “adult”, she can strut her stuff down the runway in barely there undergarments and (hopefully!) a lot of body glitter!
Be sure to check out the Victoria Secret Fashion Show on November 29th at 10pm on CBS.
Again, like we mentioned when we discussed the Missoni fo Target line, don’t EVER discount a big-box department store for fabulous fashion finds! Target is the hot spot once again for just that with the new line of Albertus Swanepoel hats. From fedoras and cloches, to a great little pillbox, Swanepoels hats are great to be any finishing touch to an outfit.
However, this is not Swanepoels first fashion endevour. As an award-winning fashion designer, the South African native has worked with the likes of Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg and Proenza Schouler by designing accessories for runway shows. However, you can now fine his own line of apparel in Barneys, Diavolina and Odin NY and even Louis Boston!
We don’t support breaking the bank for the latest and greatest, (well….with exceptions!) and neither does Swanepoel. Alberus Swanepoel’s line of fabulous hats can be found in Target stores nationwide this fall.
The Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 collection carries the spring’s jungle fever obsession into the fall. The collection, in stores this month, will feature panthers and antelopes on everything imaginable.
The prints found in this collection have been designed by Michael Roberts, Vanity Fair’s style editor at large and children’s pop-up book illustrator.
Look for these designs and more at marcjacobs.com or Nordstrom.com.
Marc Alary, New York based Parisian and a consultant to Marc Jacobs, has introduced his own jewelry line. This collection is filled with animals including monkeys, panthers, flamingos, elephants. Visit his website for more details and about where to buy!
Spring and summer Campaigns are on there way and from the looks of it, we can expect an exciting and inventive season of fresh ads. One favorite who consistently provide great imagery is Marc Jacobs.
