Miley Cyrus is the face of Marc Jacobs Spring 2014 ad campaign but word is that long time collaborators Jacobs and photographer Jurgen Teller parted ways temporarily after Jacobs chose Cyrus as the face of his new ads. Why? Because Teller didn’t want to shoot her.
Teller and Jacobs have worked together for years but after Teller backed at the idea of shooting the Wrecking Ball singer, Jacobs tapped his beauty photographer David Sims to shoot her.
“I have worked with Juergen for years and love him as an artist,” Jacobs told WWD. “He just didn’t want to shoot her.”
“We wanted this beach with girls kind of sulky and broody, and we thought it would be cool if it was Miley with what could be two friends, feeling distant and quite dark,” Jacobs explained.
“We all just love her and her entire being, her energy, her talent, her intelligence, everything,” he said. “There’s nothing I don’t like about her. She is just genuine and very natural.”
