Miley Cyrus for Marc Jacobs.

It looks like Miley Cyrus was trying to tell us more than just her stance on gay marriage with her Marc Jacobs T-shirt yesterday. She seems to have been hinting at the fact that she’s the face of the designer’s spring 2014 campaign without actually, y’know, revealing the images. She and Marc decided to slip them into February magazines without a major announcement. Luckily, Nylon found one.
Considering the duo’s longstanding friendship (Miley credits Marc with introducing her to fashion, after all), it was only a matter of time before she appeared in one of his ads. In this first image, Miley sits fully clothed on a beach. Yeah, you read that right: Miley and fully clothed in the same sentence. At the beach, of all places. This ad is turning our world upside down.
Miley wears a navy blazer with black embellishments, tasseled burgundy shorts, and embroidered sneakers. Despite her outfit, she looks like she just popped in the ocean: Her hair is damp and her skin dewy. The ad is a lot darker (in terms of lighting and color palette) than the infamous and instantly recognizable images normally associated with Marc Jacobs campaigns, but it works. It’s making me want to go to the beach and wear a lot of clothes (Marc Jacobs, preferably). That’s a winning campaign, IMHO.
Since this is already in magazines that are out in the physical world, prepare to see this shot and others like it (we hope!) as you flip through the first, like, 60 pages of any magazine. It’s a scavenger hunt for Marc Jacobs ads. Good luck, everyone!
