Model-turn-actress is quite a well trodden path (Lily Cole and Gemma Ward are the most recent examples) but model turn singer? Not so much. Though Karen Mulder and Vanessa Paradis have tried and failed/succeeded. Mr Marc Jacobs, aka Lorenzo Martone is launching a new talent and PR agency, Arc NY and is set to turn Sports Illustrated and Maybelline model Jessica White into a singer and Julie Henderson in to a skin care entrepreneur. By which we assume he will help her launch her own skin care line like Cindy Crawford and Miranda Kerr.
With a client list that already includes Alessandra Ambrosio, Lydia Hearst, Fernanda Motta and Valeria Mazza, it should be interesting to see what Martone and his partner’s behind Arc NY will do.
