>> Marc Jacobs loves throwing curve balls — both on the runway and with his personal inclinations — and during New York Fashion Week he was quite taken with wearing skirts.
He appeared on the end of both the Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs runways in skirts, explaining: "I did a lot more skirts in this collection for women than I usually do — we usually do a lot of pants. So I bought this one, and I discovered how nice it felt to wear. They’re comfortable, and wearing it made me happy, so I bought more. And now I just can’t stop wearing them."
Less than a month later, it looks like he's decided to stop wearing them. Yesterday at the Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 presentation, he debuted a new look instead: slicked-back hair, a pinstriped suit, and Nicholas Sarkozy-like stacked heels. Wonder if it was the French president who inspired him?
