Marc Jacobs Out of Clothes on OUT


Fashion designer Marc Jacobs, appearing undressed on the forthcoming September issue of OUT, tells the magazine:

"…I used to really hate seeing my own reflection in the mirror, and I’m not talking about in a drug- or alcohol-induced state—I mean in general. I just hid behind clothes, and I didn’t really care about what I wore, and I didn’t care about my skin or my hair—I just felt like, There’s nothing more I can do to look more attractive…what’s the point? and believing that, I just avoided having my picture taken."

The designer, who recently opened a boutique in Provincetown, reveals what's behind his recent weight loss:

"I’m very outspoken and honest. I’m the first to say that I’m gay, that I’m insecure, that I have certain hang-ups, that I’ve been dependent on drugs or alcohol, so I don’t really hide things with the fear that they’re going to be revealed on some blog. You’re going to get a bunch of blogs saying ‘He must be on meth in order to be that skinny compared to 10 months ago,’ but in fact I’m eating a totally organic diet, which has no flour, no sugar, no dairy, and no caffeine, and I lost weight because of that diet and because of a 2_-hour exercise regime seven days a week."

  2. He looks great, but the pull-quotes from the link to the photos make him sound like a bore. Maybe he's talanted, maybe he's funny, I dunno...I don't know him. But then i saw the photo of him kissing his reflection in the mirror & figured that's probably not a magazine i'm gonna pay for. Narcisism & vanity. Marc, you look good; so what, now do something.

  5. Have to say...I'm really surprised at the meanspiritedness here. Someone who has wrestled with addiction and a poor self image for years makes a major change in his health and his life and all people can say are things like "he still ugly", how narcissistic he is, or how he has sold out. Sure he may have traded one addiction (drugs) for another (working out and eating well) but there is such a thing as a positive addiction. I'm glad for him and wish him well. He has every right to celebrate his new body and attitude. It's obviously been a long road for him.
