90s supermodel Christy Turlington Burns hasn’t walked the fashion runway for 25 years. But Turlington rose to the occasion on Wednesday evening, closing the Marc Jacobs Fall 2019 show. Current stars like Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid, and Cindy Crawford's daughter Kaia Gerber also walked, but Christy owned the night, writing a lengthy post about her experience on Instagram.
"Marc Jacobs invited me to close his beautiful show tonight and I couldn't resist," she wrote. "A. I have known and loved this man since I met him at age 16. B. I turned 50 this year and have arrived at a place where "Why the F not" is the answer that comes up when I ask myself questions. C. I have a 15 year old daughter who I desperately want to see and hear me and this is a medium that 'speaks' to her."

A special surprise came with the announcement that Marilyn Minter had been working with Miley Cyrus and Marc Jacobs in an entirely new art project to benefit the organization Planned Parenthood of New York.
In March, the Minter/Cyrus duo met to create a steamy photo entitled 'Miley' (2016). The limited-edition print of 50 is face-mounted on UV Plexiglass, signed by creators, and sold through Artsy for $5,500 with the proceeds benefitting Planned Parenthood.
Designer Marc Jacobs joined the fundraiser, releasing two different limited-edition T-shirts for men and women for $50 -- 'Miley Hearts Planned Parenthood'. The shirts are available at MarcJacobs.com and in select boutiques.
W Magazine’s David Amsden interviewed Marc Jacobs about his upcoming brand makeover in life after his 16 year tenure as creative director of Louis Vuitton.
Among the first public signifiers that a new era has dawned is the current advertising campaign. Featuring Miley Cyrus, it was shot by David Sims, making it the first time in 16 years that Jacobs has not worked with Juergen Teller, whose past Marc Jacobs campaigns (Victoria Beckham emerging from a shopping bag, a topless Charlotte Rampling lounging on a bed) came to define the brand almost as much as the clothing. “Juergen didn’t want to shoot Miley. I didn’t get into why,” Jacobs said. “It was our first time disagreeing, and maybe if we had disagreed more in the past I would have been more patient. Who knows? I guess a lot of people had problems with her behavior or something—because they’re all so pure and chaste, right?” Jacobs, an exceedingly earnest personality in general, let slip a sarcastic snicker. “One thing I don’t tolerate is hypocrisy. Anyway, my attitude was: You don’t want to do it? Fine. Sorry it’s not working for you; but it’s my choice.” Parting with Teller wasn’t part of any specific brand strategy—“I can’t even say the word ‘strategy’ with a straight face; we’re really just intuitive and impulsive,” Jacobs noted—but it allowed him to become more at ease with shaking things up at every level of the company. “For the first time in a long time, this is the only thing I have to think about,” he said. “It feels like an opportunity to clean house and redecorate and renovate and get in touch with what initially made us tick, you know?”
