Marc Jacobs' Go-To Photographer Refused to Photograph Miley Cyrus

Gazing at Miley Cyrus' spring/summer 2014 campaign for Marc Jacobs, one can discern a lot. Miley looks very forlorn by a gloomy sea — a sort of post-apocalyptic beach motif carried over from Jacobs' spring 2014 runway show, only the trash scattered all over the runway has been replaced by models who are not Miley… » 1/09/14 1:50pm 1/09/14 1:50pm

Marc Jacobs, for Grey Gardens-ing on an Enchanted Isle

New York Fashion Week came to a glorious end with Marc Jacobs' spring 2014 collection (well, sort of "spring 2014" collection: as he told Style.com, "I didn't want the cliché of Spring and Summer, I wanted it to be about girls who have no problem coming to work in a Victorian gown and Birkenstocks").

Marc By Marc Jacobs, for the 1970s Working Woman in You

The fall 2013 collection Marc Jacobs presented for Marc By Marc Jacobs last night had a definite 1970s vibe: Deep colors, busy prints, plaid, wide lapels. A couple of the ensembles feel very Lily Tomlin from 9 to 5, and that's not a bad thing. Some of the satin stuff doesn't seem practical, but there are a lot of very… » 2/12/13 1:20pm 2/12/13 1:20pm

Cosmetics Companies Discovering Multiethnic Consumers Are a Force to…

This is kind of a DUH but so great to see it confirmed: Multiethnic beauty consumers are on the rise. WWD reports that there are "a growing number of women in the U.S. who associate themselves with multiple ethnic backgrounds, thus making it difficult for them to find brands that speak to them - or work for them -… » 7/23/12 2:30pm 7/23/12 2:30pm
