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.

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

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