Previews of the new issue of Man About Town magazine have been unveiled and one of the highlights is by far this image of a (once again) naked Marc Jacobs by Pierre et Gilles. Issue #11 is the “Not Thinking Straight — The Gay Issue” and features Mykki Blanco (under the cut), Richard Buckley, Inez & Vinoodh, LE1F, Matt Lucas, Ian McKellen, Alasdair McLellan, Pet Shop Boys and the boyfriends of five a-list designers who speak out for the first time.

Check out the image of Marc below along with the preview video for the issue. M/M #11 is available now.

Marc Jacobs has just unveiled a hugely camp and somewhat amazing short film ‘Train In Vain’ to support the launch of the Marc Jacobs Boxing Glove Necklaces. Set in NY, London and Paris, i.e. three phases for three designs – Gold, Silver, & Bronze, all available at marcjacobs.com.

KARLISMYUNKLE teamed up with fashion illustrator extraordinaire Achraf Amiri to create a set of illustrations featuring some of the fashion highlights from SS13 in New York and London. Here they are, featuring Bora Aksu, Fyodor Golan, John Rocha (London) and Hérve Léger, Alexander Wang, Victoria Beckham, Theyskens Theory and Marc Jacobs (New York). See under the cut for a special illustration of Jeremy Scott’s “Face Swim Suit”.

Gaga for Vogue 2.0 has arrived. This time shot by Mert & Marcus and styled by Grace Coddington to support the launch of her fragrance, FAME. It’s unlikely that she will get another Vogue cover during the promo period for ARTPOP, but this feels right for the scent. The dress is by Marc Jacobs and the hat by Steven Klein. It’s not like she will need it for the album, every other magazine cover in the world should suffice. This one definitely trumps the last US Vogue cover she did shot by Mario Testino.

UPDATE:

This is what the Vogue cover is supposed to look like. Definitely less RuPaul realness. The version released on Little Monsters looks like the RVB for screen/digital version, so the colouration is all off, i.e. purple skin. The newsstand version is MUCH better. Proof in point speaking from personal experience below. The set of Karl Lagerfeld bottles on the left are the RVB version and the ones on the right are the real colour versions.

The long-awaited issue of Industrie magazine featuring Marc Jacobs in drag is finally here. I shared the cover with you last year, but here’s the full spread.

Marisa Miller Marc Jacobs Cancer Awareness Campaign

The 32-year-old Victoria’s Secret babe, Marisa Miller, has followed in the steps of predecessors Heidi Klum, Naomi Campbell, Victoria Beckham and Helena Christensen and has stripped naked for Marc Jacobs’ latest edition of “Protect the skin you’re in” t-shirts, part of the skin cancer awareness campaign.

T-shirts will be sold at Marc Jacobs’ boutiques with proceeds benefiting the NYU Cancer Institute.

The cover, which in a way echoes the V Magazine cover with Gaga (in terms of styling and look/feel), was shot by Brian Bowen Smith and features Marc Jacobs with red-headed wonders Katja and Kristy Kaurova.

So BANG by Marc Jacobs finally launches tomorrow. The campaign images hit the web in May and everyone (including mediacation) went crazy for the saucy images shot by Juergen Teller – they feature a naked Marc Jacobs, who wouldn’t, right?

MARC JACOBS BANG AD CAMPAIGN

Last night saw the launch of BANG’s Facebook fan page and in sync with tomorrow’s launch a new Facebook game goes live, titled “Bang! You’re It”. The game allows Facebook users to “BANG” their friends and crushes virtually. FYI – BANG can mean more than one thing, so if your mind is in the gutter, like mine is, then the FYI is for you. At the launch of the campaign, Marc said, “When the word ‘BANG’ came to me, I liked that it was a sound and also that it felt like something was finished, done, end of story and, you know, kind of complete” – ALL CLEAR NOW?

JUST like in real life, when a Facebook user gets ‘BANG’-ed, they rack up points. According to ELLE.com, “if you get banged after midnight or by people from other countries, your score increases more”.

As far as prizes go, one BANG player will be chosen at random each day to win a selection of prizes, including a bottle of BANG or clothing. A lucky few will even win a trip to NYC to attend one of Jacobs’ fashion shows. I like this little social media campaign, I even want to keep it to myself so that I can win, but am still about to publish this blog post. As I am in the mood for sharing, here is a RIDICULOUSLY hot behind the scenes photo from the shoot . You can see more of these here.

MARC JACOBS BANG BEHIND THE SCENES

Generally in life, I’m that annoying person who, at any opportune moment, yells “VIOLENCE ISN’T THE ANSWER!” – this time around, it absolutely is.


The freshly released (and wonderfully cruel) collection by handmade t-shirt brand Better Off Dead celebrates brutality at its finest, with garments featuring Uncle Karl proudly brandishing a sacrificial rams head (having first hacked Anna Wintour’s intestines from her body, naturally.)

Likewise, Marc Jacobs is depicted covered in Stephen Sprouse-esque Louis Vuitton scrawls while carrying a bag of body parts. With any luck, they’re Victoria Beckham’s after that flop of an ad campaign for the Marc Jacobs brand – after all, the bag is small enough. A nice sharp machete is also attached to the outside of the hold-all just in case bitch’s cadaver tries to make a run for it.

Other prints include the Louis Vuitton monogram made from bones, a model on the Dior catwalk carrying a machete (entitled Dieor) and a beheaded-horse reproduction of the Hermés logo.
