Are Musicians the New Supermodels?
Selena Gomez, Courtney Love, and Missy Elliot all have new jobs in high fashion.
The era of the supermodel may or may not be over. (For more on this contentious topic, click here.) But while the debate rages on, musicians are quietly stepping into fashion's spotlight. So, are musicians the new supermodels? Let's explore the evidence.
First, Marc Jacobs leaked images from his moodily lit fall campaign, which features musical icons like Courtney Love and Missy Elliott.
In a recent Instagram post, Marc saluted Courtney's "grunge goddess" style, and admitted that she was a huge inspiration for his famous "grunge collection" show in 1992.
Marc also showed a photo of Missy Elliott from the fall 2016 campaign, gushing: "Missy’s music has kept me and my design team happily energized...during those long hours of sketching, fitting, styling and doing looks."
Missy and Courtney aren't the only boundary-pushing musicians to appear in the new Marc Jacobs campaign.
A grimacing Marilyn Manson appears in frayed denim.
And Annie Clark, who goes by the stage name Saint Vincent, posed like a beautiful, eerie doll. (Side note: Annie's girlfriend, a one Ms. Cara Delevigne, was also photographed for the campaign.)
In other musicians-for-high-fashion news, Louis Vuitton tapped Selena Gomez to be the face of its new Series 5 campaign.
Of course, we're not really asking if these musicians can do what Linda, Naomi, and Kendall do. But we do love seeing the bold—dare we say rockin—direction of the new fall campaigns.
