Marc Jacobs Turned 50 Today — See Him at 26

Speaking of attractive male fashion designers, Marc Jacobs is no Tom Ford but his rippling muscle-y chest (pictured) definitely puts him in the safe zone, looks-wise. Jacobs turns 50 years old today which is not surprising because that's exactly how long he's been alive.

As you might have noticed in the paparazzi photo that circulated yesterday which showed the designer and his 25-year-old porn star boyfriend making out in miniature speedos on a Rio beach, Jacobs is living it up. (Also yesterday: questions about "jerk[ing] off" figured prominently in a red-band clip from the designer's acting debut.) Youth might be wasted on the young, but nothing's wasted on Marc Jacobs.

Anyway, here he is in 1989, when he was 26:

Behind that coy, mischievous grin, we can only imagine what he was thinking: Can 26 still be considered mid-20s, or is it definitely late-20s? Do those fabric swatches offset my camel wool turtleneck? Would this picture be better if I was shirtless? Will I ever realize my dream of getting a sketch drawing of a couch tattooed on my hip? (Spoiler on all of those: yeah.)

After all my gentle ribbing, I just feel like I have to say, flat out: HAPPY BIRTHDAY Marc Jacobs — you're perfect and I hope you never change.

Here’s Adele’s Second ELLE Music Issue Cover

I think that since I'm one of those rare freakazoids that isn't transcendentally moved by Adele's music ("it's fine"), I'm maybe not allowed to have an opinion about her second ELLE 'Women in Music' cover (she previously appeared on the glossy's May 2011 Issue and was one of eight cover stars. This time around, ELLE will also run covers with Rita Ora and Alicia Keys).

"It's fine," is really all I can say about it. Adele is beautiful and her magazine appearances are rarely so simple and quietly soft; in both Vogue and ELLE (and the former publication's UK counterpart AND the latter's Quebec edition), she's been photographed drowning in a lush, sexy mane of hair. For her Vogue cover, the glossy dealt with her larger size by creating a serious boobage situation (it was like, drawn on), but I guess it was for a greater good: the issue was the second-highest seller in the publication's history (following Lady Gaga's, of course).

So it's nice that a magazine has finally styled her in a way that acknowledges her attractiveness as a given (she is fucking gorgeous, there's no other way to put it), but the result is a little bland. Maybe I just don't like the way Adele photographs? It always seems so commercial, or something. Maybe I just don't really care that much about Adele? Am I allowed to say that? So many questions. 

ELLE's 'Women in Music' May Issue will be available on newsstands on April 23.

Marc Jacobs in DISCONNECT: “Let Me Ask You a Question. Do You Jerk Off?”

Here's video evidence of Marc Jacobs being incapable of embarrassing himself, even when playing a porn baron in his film debut. This red-band clip from trailer (for "mature" audiences only) features a presumably pivotal early scene, with Jacobs' character making an offer no 15-year-old kid could refuse. When opportunity knocks…

DISCONNECT includes performances by Jason Bateman, Paula Patton and Alexander Skarsgard. It opens in select theaters on Friday.

Look, It’s Taylor Swift On the Cover of Wonderland

Last month, WWD reported that despite her ubiquitous presence on newsstands and the whole fact of her being a global pop sensation — when it comes down to the numbers, Taylor Swift's face doesn't sell magazines like hotcakes. Assuming that British culture magazine Wonderland secured a shoot and interview with the pop star more for the sake of its bottom line (and to broaden its appeal) than to be like, original, this cover may prove to be a disappointment. 

Or not! Taylor Swift is Taylor Swift, but this cover, photographed by Tung Walsh, is striking and fresh. It would catch my eye at the magazine store. I'd even pick it up and flip through it. (I probably wouldn't buy it but then, I'm stingy.) 

And as Honeycombchild noted in the Fashion Spot forums, the pop star might seem overexposed in the US, but this "marks only her third UK cover? Pop, InStyle and now Wonderland?" YoninahAliza points out that Swift also recently covered Marie Claire UK.
