All the subtle hints were there. Miley Cyrus donned a punk-infused Marc Jacobs look for the latest Met Gala, sporting that long-sleeved black mesh gown with nude underpinning. The 21-year-old was also applauded for wearing a gorgeous Fall ’13 backless emerald sequin number from Marc Jacobs at the 30th Annual Night of Stars. Cyrus also posed nude in one of Jacob’s ‘Love the Skin You’re In’ tees to raise funds for skin cancer, and dropped many a suggestive hint during interviews about her affinity with the designer…

“I work a lot with Marc Jacobs,” she told Rankin’s Hunger magazine in the fall. “He kind of brought me into fashion like when I was sixteen, that was when I started being around him and just learning from him.” Just a few days ago, she posted a ‘selfie’ on Twitter wearing a Marc by Marc Jacobs marriage equality tee. We should’ve seen  it all along…


Cyrus is officially the face of Marc Jacobs’ Spring/Summer 2014 campaign. Broadcasting a teenage angst-driven, dark demeanor, Cyrus channels a sombre vibe for Jacobs’ highly-anticipated ads. After an entire year of very public image transformation (selfies, provocative outfits and headline-making antics) along with her hyped-up, unashamedly innuendo-laden album ‘Bangerz’, this sophisticated approach to her imagery is refreshing – the ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer just might be embracing maturity under Jacobs’ guidance. Cyrus’ campaign has debuted in February fashion magazines nationwide.

With buzz madly circling over Cyrus’s MJ campaign, what’s fascinating is that Juergen Teller (Marc Jacob’s fashion photographer for his brand since like, ever) didn’t shoot it. Reasons for the switch in photographer are not yet certain. Perhaps Teller disapproved of the controversial star, however shutterbug David Sims had no issue shooting Cyrus alongside models, Natalie Westling and Esmerelda Seay Reynolds. Regardless, Teller shot the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2014 ads so let’s hope there isn’t a falling out in the wings.
