I don’t know what I did to Marc Jacobs but he still hates me. He expresses this hatred with naked pictures, because he knows I don’t like to buy things from naked people. Here is Marc’s latest naked picture, courtesy of Fashion Indie.
Marc hasn’t hated on me like this since August and December of 2008.A As Nancy Kerrigan would say, “WHHYYYYY?” Why, Marc? WHHYYYYY?
La Belette Rouge says
A better name for his fragrance would be “Exhibitionist”.
It’s so sad to see someone with such low self-esteem.
Suzanne aka Punk Glam Queen says
Marc Jacobs may hate you, but I think he hates me too. Well I must admit I hated him back in the early days when he was a pretentious wanna be designer trying to be cool in the clubs (we all hated the little piece of dross with gobs of money behind him) and I hate him even more for ruining MY west village and business! So phooey on him. I mean really, he needed to push out a neighborhood bookstore there for how many years, just so he could open his own? UGH! A pox on him! Besides who the hell wants to see him nekkid? Ew. (Um do you think I feel strongly? Ha!)
Wow, he’s persecuting you way more than he’s persecuting me!
Ashe Mischief says
I’m curious to know who his market is for this ad– because it says a new fragrance for men. But I’m pretty sure hetero men are NOT going to be persuaded to try this scent by this ad.
How, um, awful?
Really, if (IF) he doesn’t want to market to hetero guys, so freaking what? They can go weep into Abercrombie ads, mop their forlorn faces with the tomes of straight-friendly male-fashion adverts from Esquire and wonder why, oh why, nobody caters to the Straight Man.
Interesting point that mostly naked women can sell to women without questioning the sexuality of their target audience (even oil-ed up swimsuit eds, if you want a closer comparison) – but put out a naked MAN into the male market and boom! goes Straight Man’s delicate masculine sensibilities (apparently).
I don’t care who the scent is marketed towards — heteros, homos, gayelles, breeders, whatever. My problem is that Marc’s slick naked body is not something I want to see and something he’s too anxious to show. Didn’t YSL pose nude just the once? Looking very elegant? I mean, leave people wanting something more. Don’t serve it up to them over and over, looking like a greasy hunk of chicken on tin foil or a runaway from the Jersey Shore. With a tacky Spongebob Squarepants tattoo no less.
The Preppy Princess says
I so hate these ads, and think it is time you let him know it is time to stop hating on you! (Is there any evidence the campaign moves product?)
Smiles at you Miss Wendy,
WOW, that is really gross.
I am pretty sure that bottle doesn’t have to be that big.
deja pseu says
Ewwwww. That just put me off my feed.
Couture Carrie says
Robin Charlotte Humphrey says
this ad looks really dated to me and NOT in a good way.
I was about to ask “In a Tom Ford for Gucci way?” and then I saw K.Line’s comment below!
Freakin’ unbelievable. I want to like this guy, really I do. He’s like Tom Ford-lite.
He’s so…oiled. And the perspective of this pic is skewed right at his groin. Ick.
fashion herald says
Why must he hate you so? And he’s too shiny.
Oh no he di’ant! Speechless. Really, I’m not sure if I can even wrap my mind around this. Narcissism beyond belief.
Shop N' Chomp says
Haha…love the vid! XD I don’t care for the greaseball look. =\
belle de ville says
Brilliant…and great comments too.
Looks like this Tom Selleck cake:
Totally agree. The ad certainly doesn’t speak to me. Ga-ross.
oh marc jacobs. well, i am not sure how much i should write here. SIGH. i’ll be brief, but some of his stuff i love, and some of his stuff looks like a big, fat FUCK YOU, and that he just laughs and laughs his way to the bank as young girls will just buy anything he churns out. i could go on and on, but this is enough.
oh, maybe a little bit more….i give almost all of his ad campaigns an “F”. but he is doing fine without 100% of my support!
hope you have a great weekend!
You have my permission to change your name to highlariousgirl.
Well he’d hate me too if I spread the gossip that I heard about him the other day… but I’m not gonna. And is there really any need for the naked thing??
Gossip? Whisper it in my ear….
I love this campaign
Ewwwwwww! Jacobs looks all greasy and douchebaggy all at once… ugh!
And this is for a men’s fragrance? I’d hate to know what this smells like.
My guess is a mix of sweat, tequila, lube and desperation.
Definitely not sex and candy, that’s fo’ sho’, yo.
Wait, this description of the smell is better: http://dlisted.com/node/37368
I’d rather smell like Teen Spirit and Kurt Cobain; pep rally riots FTW!
I feel exactly the way you do about this subject! haha
Just came across your blog! It is lovely!
As is yours!
gosh he needs to go back to being a loveable geek again… sighs.
Yes…or his long-haired Perry Ellis days.
Faux Fuchsia says
Didn’t Ole Marc Jacobs defend that dreaders Terry Richardson?
Congrats on your SATC earring triumph. Hooray.
i have to say i think he’s hot (away from the grease)
sharon rose says
Hi there-yes, less nakedness would be really great, LOL!! Wishing you a fabulous weekend my dear and congrats on all the press you’ve been getting for the truly stunning SATC 2 earrings!!
Yikes! Someone needs a new P.R. team. Pronto!
pretty face says
Ahahahaha. It’s difficult to talk about him without resorting to colourful language.
Ugh, he’s all greased up this time, too! MYEYESSSSS!!!!!!
Now I have to wash my brain AND my eyes out with soap.
Make Do Style says
Not a good look :-((
Oh dear, no. Just no. He looks like he is covered in olive oil, cannibalism is just so last year.
Haha I love that you don’t like to buy things from naked people. I totally agree!!
That's Not My Age says
I preferred the grungy Marc Jacobs – you know, when he was on drugs.
He looks like a roaster chicken…
You shouldn’t take things so personally Hun
That ad does not make me want to buy anything from Marc Jacobs. I find it annoying that the ad centers around shock value.
OK, so it’ll be the first time that I don’t rip out a Marc ad to put it on my wall, but I can’t bring myself to totally hate it? Women are always naked in perfume ads, but never the dudes. It’s a kind of ugly photo, though. Juergen Teller is one of the only photographers whose nudity I tolerate, but this is so…greasy. And his butt must hurt.
Not sure why but I am much more likely to buy stuff from naked women ads then men. Uh Oh! Does that make me sexiest?
Michelle @ Glisters & Blisters . says
marc jacobs is the BOMB !
many thanks for your warm comments 🙂
hope you’re enjoying the weekend !

Well it certainly does the job, quite literally Marc Jacobs BANG! but less oil and more clothes please!
Agreed; he’s a bit too shiny in this ad. I immediately thought of Tom Ford too, but he’d never look so greasy. I loved Marc in his long-haired druggy days, but the new tattooed, buff version is tough to take.
ew. ew. ew. A middle aged man greased down naked on some tin foil is not good marketing. Its called a mid life crisis.
Fajr | Stylish Thought says
Lol… well he may hate you, but I think that tin foil he’s sitting on hates him more.
The whole sexy Marc was cute at first, but now he’s worse than Naomi Campbell repeatedly beating her assistants, at least we know where her issues come from.
I’m missing the slightly geeky Marc Jacobs from a few years ago. What happened to him?!
And yes, total Tom Ford rip off, except that TF looks hot and well, this ad looks skanky. I think it’s the body oil :o/
he really changed his body, so he is doing his part: showing it! hahaha
Oh very funny Xxxx
Enough already! All those years as a “nerd” have pushed him to this horrible in-your-face douchey cool guy wannabe! This ad isn’t genius or funny. They’re fugly and scary!
No one needs to see an oiled up Marc. Noah Mills, yes. Marc Jacobs, no.
Denise @ Swelle says
I jumped in the shower immediately after seeing this ad but the oil just won’t come off.
