Last year Marc Jacobs and business partner, Robert Duffy photographed Carolyn Murphy, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Julianne Moore, Dita Von Teese and Selma Blair in the nude for limited edition tshirts for cancer research. This year they’ve added the likes of Heidi Klum (she seems to be stripping for magazines a lot of late), Helena Christensen, Eva Mendes, Alison Lohman and Joss Stone to the celebrity roster, as well as four of his own staffers.
Andrew Weyer, Kyle Avila, Chico Clark and Owen Marvel (pictured) also posed nude for photographs which were then printed on to tshirts, with the proceeds going to benefit the New York University School of Medicine, Interdisciplinary Melanoma Cooperative Group.
According to the WWD, Duffy hopes to raise about $500,000 with this new batch of $35 T-shirts (up from $20 last year), which will also go out to other Marc by Marc Jacobs stores worldwide.
I wonder why Marc couldn’t talk his favourite celebrity of the moment, Victoria Beckham, into posing nude for his tshirts…[source]
