Marc Jacobs on His Fall 2010 Louis Vuitton Cast, the Origins of His Skirt Obsession, and Red Carpet Dressing

>> Last night in Manhattan, Marc Jacobs participated in the French Institute Alliance Française Fashion Talks Series, where he explained that he wasn't attempting to make a statement about age or body type with his womanly Fall 2010 Louis Vuitton cast.

“I believe that these iconic, larger-than-life women are very Vuitton-like . . . This season we talked about it and we decided the criteria was, they have to be available on the day of the show and they have to be gorgeous," he explained. "So we just kept throwing out names . . . I suggested Elle Macpherson and Laetitia Casta, and [my stylist Katie Grand] suggested Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima." Some models Jacobs wanted for the show didn't work out. "There were plenty of other girls who we wanted to work with who weren’t available. We wanted Daria [Werbowy], but she was booked for a shoot, and Isabeli [Fontana] but she was booked for a shoot." The ultimate goal of the cast, he said, was to have people who "don’t know anything about fashion" say "That was a gorgeous show."

As for the skirt »

Marc also shared the origin of his skirt obsession; Fashionista reports: "Marc’s famous kilt was the result of a bad mood in the office. He was feeling uninspired and told his assistant Casey to go to Barneys and buy him a pair of funny pants to cheer him up. Thus the Comme des Garçons kilt streak commenced."

And his feelings on red carpet dressing remain the same: "It doesn't interest me much. If someone wants to borrow a dress and it's around, that's fine. I don't put my energy into the idea of dressing people for red carpet events."
