Mrs Marc Jacobs
That's Not My Age is a late adopter and proud. It's one of the good things about getting on a bit. No pressure to be the first to discover new stuff, just let the rest of the blogosphere blog itself into a frenzy, wait a few weeks, then stick your oar in. And so, I'd like to talk about Marc Jacobs, 47, in drag (on the cover of the latest Industrie magazine, shot by Patrick Demarchelier and styled by Katie Grand). That's Not My Age quite likes a man in a dress; The Stones in Have You Seen Your Mother Baby? Bowie on the cover of The Man Who Fell To Earth, Dustin Hoffman in Tootsie, it's probably got something to do with growing up in the eighties. Men wore make-up and fancy clothes. End of.
Anyway, there are two things I'd like to say about, Mrs Jacobs. He/she looks better in Katie Grand's clothes than smug, naked and oily in the ad for Bang:
In fact, I preferred Jacobs when he was grungy, on drugs and didn't go to the gym. And secondly, he looks a bit like George Best in this picture. And that is not a bad thing.
What do you think?
