Tatu the faces of Marc Jacobs fall winter 2008/09?

Could this crazy rumour be true? Could the Russian girl band Tatu (who once pretended to be lesbians) really be the faces of Marc by Marc Jacobs’ fall winter 2008/09 advertising campaign?

Tatu band members, Volkova and Lena Katina, were photographed in a Marc Jacobs boutique this week modeling pieces from his fall/winter collection with a video from the shoot leaking on to the internet. Now the word on the web is that they’re the new faces of the brand!

But here’s a few of our thoughts as to why this may not be true:

  • If you watch the video below, why is the campaign being photographed in a Marc Jacobs boutique?
  • It doesn’t look like Juergen Teller, the usual MJ photog, is snapping the pictures
  • Isn’t cross-dressing-male-model, Cole Mohr the face of the Marc by Marc Jacobs fall collection?
  • Would Marc really go from a former Spice Girl to a cross dressing male model, to a faux lesbian girl group? Ok well when you put it like that…

What do you think, is the news true or false?

    Insanity! But color me intrigued.

  • Lizzie says:

    Say it isn’t so!! Posh was just naff as the face of MJ, but Tatu would make it nasty/trashy.

  • Chen says:

    Realistically these girls are as manufactured by marketing as every single model any designer has ever had. Feel free to disagree 🙂 but I love t.a.t.u’s sound and image, lesbian or not.

  • Jeri says:

    To answer your question, I believe t.A.T.u. may only be the face of the Autumn/Winter collection in Russia only. But no promises there, who knows what Marc will do?!

    i agree with Chen, i heart t.A.T.u. they have an ah-mazing sound && image, when i thought [which was when i first started to listen to them] that they were lesbians i still loved them than when i found out i was a little dissapointed because they made a cute couple xD

    i think its great.
    either way its a lot of publicity for both marc jacobs (not like he needs it lol) and t.A.T.u.
    besides, theyre gorgeouss

  • Emma says:

    It’s true and it’s amazing! The girls are great, they have a fantastic style. They are perfect for Marc, ‘cuz they look so stylish in that clothes. The t.A.T.u. came back with a new great CD and a Marc Jacob campaign! Splendid!
