The new face of Marc Jacobs
The Spring- Summer collection gets fond from Bette Midler. “What a privilege it is to know your heroes,” Marc Jacobs wrote in an Instagram post on Friday morning to announce Bette Midler as the latest face of his Spring-Summer campaign. Judging from the exuberant expression on her face, it seems that the Divine Miss M feels the same way.
“To this day, I still credit Bette Midler (unbeknownst to her) with a large part of my foray into fashion design,” Jacobs continued in his post. “At age ten when I discovered the image drawn by Richard Amsel for her album cover, I was so instantly enamored by the silhouetted Bette in a black dress wearing platform sandals with a wedge of red curly hair that I recreated it on the back of a jean jacket with acrylic paint and embroidery floss and proudly wore it to school.”
