Marc Jacobs has officially lost his marbles. The minted fashion designer has selected those Russian faux-lesbian singers, T.A.T.U, as the new faces of his fall ad campaign. He should have stuck with Posh, The White Stripes or Sofia Coppola. They were culturally relevant choices that in their own ways represented some ideal, good or bad depending on your perspective. For Posh? Consumerism and celebrity. For Sofia? Smarts and legacy. You know what I’m saying?
I can barely recall these chicks who had their 15 minutes way back in 1999. They had some song. They had a child porn aura about them. They had a “I’m-attending-a-liberal-arts-college-and-am-just-experimenting” attitude that gets real old, real quick. Meh.
