Marc Jacobs was looking for the perfect campaign model, one that would really highlight — but not overshadow — the integrity and high design standards of his Spring 2014 collection. Obviously, there was only one choice: Miley Cyrus.
Photographed by David Sims, Miley is pictured sitting on a dark and stormy beach, flanked by models Natalie Westling and Esmerelda Seay Reynolds.
Although the mood and setting are consistent with the designer's past campaigns, it isn't the work of Jacobs' longtime collaborator, Juergen Teller. WWD reports that the German fashion photographer passed on the project because he didn't want to work with Cyrus.
“I have worked with Juergen for years and love him as an artist,” Jacobs told the trade. “He just didn’t want to shoot her.”
