The Full Miley–Following up a preview of the advertisements, the full Marc Jacobs spring 2014 campaign has been released, and it stars none other than pop star Miley Cyrus. While Juergen Teller did not want to shoot the attention-grabbing singer, David Sims captured Miley in a series of dark beach images taken on location in Los Angeles, California. Miley is joined by models Natalie Westling and Esmerelda Seay Reynolds in the photographs.
Jessica Lange for Marc–From Miley to now, “American Horror Story” actress Jessica Lange, Marc Jacobs is getting an interesting roster of spokespersons as he moves on to the next phase of his brand. Lange stars in the new beauty campaign for Marc Jacobs photographed by David Sims (who also shot Miley’s spring ads)–an unexpected choice considering cosmetics’ leanings to young models and actresses. At 64 years old, Jessica looks better than ever wearing a pensive expression in the moodily shot images.
Marc Jacobs Fall 2014–Closing New York Fashion Week, Marc Jacobs gave a thoughtfully minimal outing for his fall-winter 2014 collection which marked his first season since his Louis Vuitton departure. While last season showcased dark colors for spring, fall was all about dreamy shades of cream, tan, light blue and lilac sometimes with color blocking or gradient patterns. Models walked the runway in matching short bobs with headbands covering the blunt hairstyle. The Marc Jacobs woman embraced an almost minimal aesthetic for the season sporting long tunics (short and long-sleeved), chiffon ruffle-adorned gowns and bomber jackets to finish the look. Sequin-adorned dresses topped over cropped trousers exude a 1960s vibe as did much of the collection.
While Miley Cyrus’ new Marc Jacobs campaign seems to have some polarizing reactions, one person who didn’t want to work with the “Wrecking Ball” singer is photographer Juergen Teller. The German creative has shot Marc Jacobs’ campaigns since the late 90s, and you may have noticed that the new spring 2014 advertisements were lensed by David Sims.
Jacobs told WWD, “I have worked with Juergen for years and love him as an artist..He just didn’t want to shoot her.” The American designer goes on to praise Cyrus though. “We all just love her and her entire being, her energy, her talent, her intelligence, everything.”
Miley Gets Moody for Marc Jacobs – The spring-summer 2014 campaign from Marc Jacobs enlists the much buzzed about singer Miley Cyrus.

In the image, Miley is shown posing on a dark beach setting looking sullen in an embellished shirt and bermuda shorts. After seeing Lady Gaga for Versace and Rihanna for Balmain; the spring campaign season seems to be the return of the celebrity.
