Juergen Teller's Only Marc Jacobs Ad-Related Controversies Both Came Courtesy of Vogue

Juergen Teller's Only Marc Jacobs Ad-Related Controversies Both Came Courtesy of Vogue

>> Juergen Teller has regular work in Vogue UK, Vogue Paris, and of course W — but it's difficult to recall the last time he was published in Vogue (besides his ad work for Marc Jacobs).  A quick search turns up a Vogue editorial with Christy Turlington — but dated 1994.  His comments to The Moment about which of his ad series for Marc Jacobs were most controversial may provide clues as to why:

Funnily enough the most complaints were about the series with Dick Page and James Gibbs because they are a gay couple. Men’s Vogue even refused to publish it. Dick is a very close friend of mine and I’ve known him for 20 years — he’s been part of the Marc family for 20 years. And I like the idea of having a gay couple in a men’s ad because it makes sense. And I wanted the ads to be like they are — very romantic, tender and sweet. I certainly didn’t want to have anything provocative, not at all. The only other controversy that comes to mind also involved Vogue — the women’s one — over an ad of a clothed Cindy Sherman and me in which I am grabbing her breasts. That caused a stir. Go figure.

Although many suspected the Spring 2007 set with then 12-year-old Dakota Fanning would have caused Teller trouble, he says not so: "The Dakota ones caused nothing, and they are pretty hard-core. They are on the border of being too much, even for me. I don’t remember hearing much about it, but if there was any controversy it was very under the radar."
