American Harper’s Bazaar has been doing some rather tongue in cheek things of late, first creating a spread featuring The Simpsons and Linda Evangelista at the Couture shows in Paris with cameo’s made by some of fashion’s biggest design names. Then a few months later they modeled young children as Karl Lagerfeld, Miuccia Prada and some of their counterparts in a spread, and now they’ve poked fun at Marc Jacobsâ€™ notoriously late Spring 2008 show that earned him the ire of fashion journalists.
Working with Jacobs and his team, Glenda Bailey (Bazaar’s EIC) reenacted the almost 2 hour late show which featured some fashion nameâ€™s playing themselves in a series of photographs.
Some memorable shots include front row star, Helena Christensen realizing at 9:50 that she was wearing the same Jacobs dress as the person next to her; then there were as Jacobs front-row regulars Allison Sarofim, Genevieve Jones, Cindy Sherman, and Kim Gordon, all looking bored or half asleep at 10:49 p.m with one of the Louis Vuitton nurses thrown in for good measure.
