>> Following Monday's "Fashion Talks" discussion at the French Institute Alliance Francaise, the Wall Street Journal approached Marc Jacobs to get his thoughts on the recent controversy surrounding Terry Richardson's work habits, which Terry himself addressed over the weekend.
When asked whether sexy photoshoots with young models should be more closely monitored by the industry, Jacobs replied: “I’ve worked with Terry and Terry has asked me to do some crazy things. I know that those pictures will exist if I do them. But I’m a big boy and I can say no.”
He said that he hadn't heard about the controversy, adding that Richardson is “not ill-spirited.” Then, Jacobs went further to say about the industry in general: “If a girl is underage, maybe the girl’s agent or chaperone should be present on the shoot. That’s the hard part. Who’s to blame or who’s to watch?”
