MARC JACOBS REVELATIONS

 
All eyes were on Marc Jacobs on the night of May 4th.  Not only did he host this year’s Met Gala alongside Editor in Chief Anna Wintour, Justin Timberlake, and supermodel Kate Moss – but he also dressed a number of the night’s biggest stars including Kate Moss, Madonna, Victoria Beckham, Leighton Meester, and Winona Ryder.
 
The designer was interviewed by The New York Times and told the paper that his role as the creative director of Louis Vuitton involved selling products not ruling the world, adding that he only works to please one person – LVMH chairman Bernard Arnault. The designer notes that Arnault gave him the job, “he wanted me there and he believed I could do it. When he’s pleased, I’m pleased and the only way he’s pleased is when we sell a lot of product.”
 
 
Jacobs also said that he thinks he and his fellow designers owe a lot to journalists, and that all designers “have to choose colors and make some clothes and then we have to hope that women are going to go out and buy them.” Lucky for Jacobs he seems to be doing nothing short of amazingly well on that front.
