The Fall Of Marc Jacobs


I have been watching in horror Marc Jacob's transformation for bona fide fashion designer to wannabe Hollywood d-list celebrity. Who would have guessed that getting clean would have caused the downward spiral, it is usually the other way around. The tacky tattoo of himself, the awful costume he wore to his Arabian style party, Kevin Federline at his fashion show, meeting perez hilton (who lamely thinks he discovered Agy Deyn and innocently believes she's brand new). It is truly awful. But Marc really hit an all time low when he flew to LA to go to perez hilton's birthday party. Are you serious? Other "celebrities" in attendance included Heidi Montag, Spencer Bratt and Victoria Recano  (whoever she is). The saddest part is that people like Khloe Kardashian get paid to attend that kind of event, but Marc obviously doesn't need the money so ... he actually wanted to be there.

There is an upside to this sad story and that is that his designs continue to amaze. At least for now. I just bought a few fun somethings at a Marc by Marc Jacobs store which I love love but I really wondered if maybe his design team is really responsible for all the great stuff and he just puts his name on it.

I really don't like who he is now either
I've posted about this many times because it's a bit shocking
I miss the old geeky marc, now he seems too into himself.

anna. said...

i actually hated his spring-summer collection.
it was simply too "akward" perhaps?
which i ususally adore.

The Clothes Horse said...

Eek! I guess when we put people on a pedestal they are bound to fall, far and hard...

Gosh u r sooo right as usual C. marc is such a mess and not even a hot mess we love like britney.

atelier said...

At first I liked his change, it was like more healthy but now... as you say, I am wondering what is he doing with himself...

Allure said...

I saw a documentary yesterday called Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton, and he looked much better back then. He was still wearing thick eyeglasses, but looked and ate very healthy.

Trendini said...

i prefer geeky unstructured marc to the shiny new model. in the past, its like he was this man with visions and creativity...now he seems slightly sellout-ish

hannah said...

i liked him when he was geeky. *sniffle*.

ambika said...

Sadly, I have to agree with you. I miss the geeky marc, too.

chloe van paris said...

have you saw the new watch of Marc Jacob.It's a bad imitation of a Hermés classic.

coco said...

I know what you mean, he looks like a totally different person
But I still kind of like him
Perez on the other hand? Yuck! He is scum, there is no other way to state it!
x x x x

Mary-Laure said...

That's pretty scary...

BTW, I love your banner - who's the model?

Sunniva said...

I loved geeky Marc..he was so original! Now he's become this mainstream person. I still like him though, but something has changed..he's like a whole different person

Elisabeth said...

discothequechic said...

I love Marc and I think the transformation has done good for him; he may look all shiny but he's happy, and hey, he's certainly on a roll with his designs.

and above all, he's healthy

which is why i am forgiving him for perez's. because thats the only thing i mlldly disaprove of.

Secret Agent said...

Haha! I know exactly what you're talking about. I was looking at a few of his pictures for another blog I write for and I found these pictures of him with these ridiculous tattoos. Wtf? He used to be so innocent and now he's this...tanned queen. What's the deal? I don't have much to say about his talent since I'm not really into fashion. But, would you say his style or his collections have also gone down?

iñaki said...

GOOD GOD!
Are you for real? I have lost a great deal of respect for him... I mean, out of all the lousy wannabes in this freaking world he had to go to PH's birthday?! This is surely the start of a downfall.
I agree with you, this also means his team are doing more than we actually thought...

xx

alis said...

although I prefer the geeky marc, I'm not that sad he went to lame-o perez's bday, maybe he'll come to my birthday too someday. he's gonna be my bitch :P

Fashiographer said...

On the contrary, I like the shiny new Marc. Don't know why. No, actually, I don't care, as long as he continues to be my favorite designer.

ChiliLady said...

anybody who's friend ith Perez is messed up!^It's sad.

Molly :] said...

What a shame.
Perez hilton is a sham of a celebrity.. being friends with him will only end in Marcs demise.

I prefered him as the nerdy designer. :) x

la petite fashionista said...

who could have ever imagined marc jacobs taking fashion tips from perez hilton.. this is sad.

laia. said...

Oh christ, I wish I'd never seen this picture.
My life is ruined.

Jen said...

...wow, that's kind of...sad. i love marc stuff too. damn.

Rollergirl said...

Totally agree with you, what is he on! I do love the Marc collection but the mainline collection does nothing for me.

vogued out!!! said...

I agree, so sad. still love me some Marc though, I believe in comebacks.

Juaи + said...

"(whoever she is)"
I laught so bad when i read that !

hahaha

I think he should get fat again, and stop acting like a dumb kid.

Paul Pincus said...

give me a break. marc jacobs can do whatever he wants to do...maybe if you were getting fucked by jason on a regular basis you would not be so uptight and judgmental. at least he put down the pipe!...that deserves a cheer, no?

a bunch a sheep...following their leader...in this case, the person who posted this lame attack.

can't we love marc for being the genius that he is AND accept the fact that he likes rent boys with huge cocks who are cool with a bit of partying / *ice*?!?

can't we just be happy for marc? ; )

Imelda Matt said...

OMG...surely we're kindred spirits because I said something similar when I was interviewed on a national television show (in Australia) last month here's the link http://www.imelda.com.au/well_shod_well_imformed/2008/04/get-off-the-cra.html

Push it forward to about the half-away point!!! I don't want to get started on this because i could go-on-and-on...like forever!!!

Love your blogxxx

So because he is hanging out with people you don't personally approve of you suspect that someone else must be designing his excellent clothing? This post reminds me of junior high girls gossiping. If you don't like Perez Hilton, don't stoop to his gossipy, judgemental level.
Marc is amazing. Let's try and focus on the clothes, not the personal life of the designer.

Bobble Bee said...

The first thought I had on the subject was the same as you: what the heck is Marc doing at Perez's b'day party??

Then, thinking over i wondered, who am I to judge what others do with their life?

Do i like Marc's designs? Yes. Then that's what i should judge, not his private life. Do we all have "perfect" private lives? I don't really think so...

We don't know if this "new" Marc is what he always wanted to be, healthy, popular and thin, and if it's so, good for him. :) He's living the life he wants to live, and who doesn't want that!!?

Who gives a fuck if he wants to hangout with Perez? Let him be. He has his own life just like you? Do you not have anything better to right on ur Uberchic blog? Being Uberchic is about minding your own buisness and being happy for yourself and others. So leave poor Marc alone. He is a beautiful and talented person, just like you.
