Beauty Test Drive: Marc Jacobs Bang Eau De Toilette Spray

It’s not every day that we test products for men here at The Frisky. But Bang is Marc Jacobs’ first masculine fragrance in almost 10 years, so I had to jump at the chance. Plus, did you see how hot Marc looked in the Bang ad? Apparently, this scent is so special that he had…

Model Tanning FAIL

At first, we kind of thought that these three lovelies were dead. Then we looked more closely at the clothes and realized that there was nary a sign of struggle or dragging in sight. All we can really take from this bizarre Marc Jacobs fall ’10 ad campaign is that they don’t realize that tanning…

Quotable: Marc Jacobs Takes A Brain Vacation With The “Jersey Shore”

“Recently I watched every episode of ‘Jersey Shore”s first season. I don’t know if it was any good and I certainly didn’t learn anything, but it was definitely hypnotic and it gave my brain a vacation.”Marc Jacobs on his “appreciation” for a certain reality TV show. Let’s hope this means we’ll never see one…

Would You Go Blue?

Last time I checked, having blue hair was a sure indication that you’ve passed the prime moments in your life and have officially hit old age. However, pop stars and designers are looking to change those preconceived notions, and now, with their approval, blue hair is all the rage. Marc Jacobs started it off a…

Get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Louis Vuitton campaign for fall/winter 2010, featuring Christy Turlington, Karen Elson, and Natalia Vodianova — or, as Marc Jacobs calls them, “three of the most beautiful women, I think, in the world.” The ladies pose for photographer Steven Klein in a faux dressing room…

Lorenzo Martone Tries His Hand At Swimwear

Marc Jacobs seems to be rubbing off on his adorable significant other, Lorenzo Martone, who’s decided to give clothing design a shot. Having spent years working on fashion brands at advertising agency Chandelier Creative, Martone’s no stranger to style and creativity, but the swimwear line he’s creating with jewelry designer Jules Kim is his first…

Quotable: Marc Jacobs Is Tortured, Attracted To Yellow

“I’m as tortured as ever, I see my shrink once a week, have all the same mood swings, I can sit there the night before a show and think, ‘What if they hate it? What if my life is over and I am homeless?’ … But I also have a certain amount of self-awareness at…

Nothing Sketch About MJ’s Miss Sketchy Laptop Case

Maybe it’s because we’re bloggers, but for us, our computers rank among our most prized possessions. In fact, some of us would even say that our primary relationship is (sadly) with a laptop. To be fair, Lappy can be better than a boyfriend—he keeps you warm in bed, cuddles up with you any time to…

Time Only Has Room For One Designer

Time magazine takes it upon itself to narrow down the 100 most influential people in the world on a yearly basis to create the “Time 100″ list. Along with the requisite world leaders — Barack Obama, Bill Clinton — a few fashion people generally earn a spot for their efforts. But this year, the list…

Itty Bitty Marc Jacobs Earrings, Equally Small Price

Oh, Piperlime. You’re like that kid in high school who was really, really cool but nobody knew it. You may not have that uber-trendy edge, but if we dig, we’re always finding cute little surprises. Take, for example, these teeny Marc by Marc Jacobs bow-shaped stud earrings that come in sexy black or virgin (ha,…

Beauty Test Drive: Marc Jacobs “Biscotti” Splash Scent

There are so many fragrances to choose from this season. My new favorite everyday scent right now is Marc Jacobs “Biscotti” Splash Scent (sold exclusively at Nordstrom).

When Tavi Met Marc

Well, lookie who I spotted while milling around backstage before Marc Jacobs’ show — the designer himself, meeting silver-haired (um, yes) teen fashion blogger, Tavi, while getting his makeup done. It was the first time the two had met and Tavi was there to interview Marc for a video blog. When the makeup artist asked…

Watch Fashion Shows From The Comfort Of Your Couch

As of today, Fashion Week is officially underway, but with the snow and cold temperatures, getting around in New York City is simply treacherous. This weather makes you want to sit on your couch in PJs and catch up on daytime television, doesn’t it? Thankfully, 12 designers (so far!) have plans to embrace the internet…

Marc Jacobs Thinks Celebrities Are “Boring”

Marc Jacobs and business partner Robert Duffy are banning celebrities from their shows at Fashion Week. For many of us, watching the who’s who of the front row is almost as exhilarating as seeing the latest fall collection, but according to Duffy celebrities are just “boring.” Granted, the team claimed that celebrities were verboten last…

Mark Your Calendars: Marc Jacobs Will Live Stream His Runway Show!

Every season, the Marc Jacobs show is one not to be missed. But the creative designer has his finicky ways of presenting his clothes. One year the show began drastically late, the next only a few short minutes after its official start time, and then the number of invitations was cut–so even celebrities were left…
