Good evening, America. It’s recently come to our attention that Chloe has been practicing her mo-deling for Marc Jacobs.
The cultural icon appears in a new ad for Jacobs that celebrates a certain kind of Americana.
Chloe’s alter ego Drew Droege spoke with DazedDigital about how he became involved with Jacobs’ latest campaign:
Someone who works for him asked me to host his fragrance launch last year, so they brought me to New York for that and we met and hit it off. Marc’s people all get it, and they’re really fun to be around. So when they asked me to model and do this thing, I mean it was the funniest thing in the world to think that I would be a model, let alone for Marc Jacobs.

I first fell in love with Christina Ricci when I saw her acting along side Cher and Winona Ryder in, Mermaids in 1990 and then again in her role as Wednesday in, The Adams Family. As with Winona’s, Lydia, in Beetlejuice, I have always loved the little gothic characters as depicted by Tim Burton and Charles Adams. Those fictitious, dark little creatures have always resonated with me and are often referenced in my work. And then there was Vincent Gallo’s, BUFFALO ’66… The images of Christina’s character from that film still serve as frequent beauty references. It was in 2004 when I first started working with Christina while at Louis Vuitton. She was in our fall campaign that season and then opened our Spring/Summer 2005 show in Paris. Christina continues to inspire me and remains a part of our MJ family. I am so pleased to have had another opportunity to work with her surrounded by this incredible group of individuals. Photographed on and around Christina are, Andrea Rosen – gallery owner and friend, Drew Droege – a favorite comedian of mine (who also performed at our recent Decadence event as, Chloe Sevigny), Hookerlegs – who previously appeared in the 2014 Marc by Marc #castmemarc campaign, Natalie Westling – who continues to keep me abreast of street lingo, Grace Bol – who’s always as beautiful as can be, Tyg Davidson – from our SS16 show and Jenny Beth Thomas – who momentarily ducked out from her job that day to run down to the studio and be photographed by David Sims for Spring/Summer 2016. @riccigrams @drew_droege @andrearosengal @hookerlegs @gracebol @lovetyg @nataliewestling @blackhairblackheart
