After working as the creative director of the French design house Louis Vuitton from 1997 to 2014, American fashion designer Marc Jacobs left the brand to focus on his own line. Jacobs was on Time magazine's "2010 Time 100" list of the 100 most influential people in the world, and ranked number 14 on Out magazine's 2012 list of "50 Most Powerful Gay Men and Women in America". He was also named "Designer of the Year" by Council of Fashion Designer many times.
On his designs, Jacobs has said "what I prefer is that even if someone feels hedonistic, they don't look it. Curiosity about sex is much more interesting to me than domination. ... My clothes are not hot. Never. Never." These words give clues about his extraordinary sense of style. A little bit of couture, a little bit of street style, a little bit of vintage... A Marc Jacobs look is the combination of many things at the same time and he's maybe the best designer to do this.
His clients include Kate Moss, Sofia Coppola, Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga. My favourite ever Marc Jacobs look is the one worn by Kate Moss in 2009 Met Gala. See all the best Marc Jacobs looks below.
