Miley Cyrus fronts Marc Jacobs Spring 2014 campaign
Anna Wintour may have thought that Miley Cyrus was too vulgar to grace American Vogue after her controversial VMA performance , but Marc Jacobs has nothing but praise for the racy pop star who is fronting the designer’s Spring 2014 campaign.
Cyrus has already posed for Jacobs, as she bared it all for the designer’s charitable, “Protect The Skin You’re In” T-shirt campaign, which raises money for New York University’s Skin Cancer Institute, while this time she remains fully and beautifully clothed in the new and rather edgy compaign.
David Sims shot the campaign in Los Angeles where instead of seeing the usually provocative 21-year-old in one of her saucy poses, she’s sitting on a dark and sandy beach, in broody contemplation while models Natalie Westling and Esmerelda Seay Reynolds are in the background.
In the photograph Miley is wearing burgundy shorts, a navy, embellished blazer and black shoes with white embroidery from Jacobs' latest eponymous collection.
The most talked about singer of 2013 was hand picked by Marc Jacobs for the shoot ,as they have been friends for a few years after having met at Robert Duffy’s birthday party and Cyrus has often graced high profile events like the 2013 Met Gala, the Fashion Group International's 30th Annual Night of the Stars and on The X-Factor wearing Jacobs designs.
Marc Jacobs told Women's Wear Daily: “Robert became friends with Miley a few years ago, and I know her through him. I met her years ago at Robert’s birthday party in Savannah and we became friendly.”
“We all just love her and her entire being, her energy, her talent, her intelligence, everything. There’s nothing I don’t like about her. She is just genuine and very natural.”
Describing the shoot, Jacobs' added: “We wanted this beach with girls kind of sulky and broody, and we thought it would be cool if it was Miley with what could be two friends, feeling distant and quite dark.”
