>> A casual comment was made at a dinner party: "Gee, Marc Jacobs is the new Andy Warhol."  Fast forward, and bam!  Enter Interview's June/July 2008 issue, Marc Jacobs on the cover complete with white makeup and Warholian white wig.

The accompanying article focus on Marc's obsession with art, his artist collaborations with the likes of Takashi Murakami and Stephen Sprouse, his art-inspired advertising, and his club-like stores — "Andy was always talking about how new art is business art," cover story writer Glenn O'Brien explained.  However, Marc doesn't necessary agree with the comparison:

I don't think of myself that way.  Warhol is Warhol.  He's practically a god.  I thought, 'I'm going to get a lot of hell for this.'

But he did have a good time on the 12-hour editorial shoot with photographer Mikael Jansson: "Even though my scalp and eyelids were completely sore, it was all worth it.  It was just a ball."  Fun for us, too — when else are you going to see Marc in falsies and his own Louis Vuitton heels?
