Marc Jacobs Puts Male Model in Women's Clothes

I’ve been patiently awaiting Marc Jacobs’ new Fall/Winter 2008/2009 ad campaign. After the extremely quirky and weird Victoria Beckham ads, I was glad to hear he was using real models this time. However, I am not sure if the new direction is much better (or any less weird) than the robotic Victoria…

Male model Cole Mohr is featured in both Marc by Marc Jacobs menswear and womenswear campaigns. Mohr was photographed by Juergen Teller in Texas.

One ad shows Mohr wearing a feminine blue and black check pea coat, black shoes and clutching a purple bag. The second ad features Mohr in a black mini-dress with a big satin bow.


The ads were first featured in the July 2008 issue of Vogue.
