Living with Art: Part Deux Update


I love it when people I've profiled email me or leave comments. They always add that missing element that makes the story so much more interesting. So I was very excited to receive the following comment regarding my profile of Marc Jacobs' Paris home that was featured in the November 2007 issue of W magazine. I hope you enjoy it too!

"I am the women in the sitting room photo. I'm Marc's personal chef. The photographer, Philip-Lorca DiCorcia decided he wanted me in one of the photos. Marc asked me if I wouldn't mind being in one of the photos with him while I was serving them all lunch on the terrace. It was an offer I couldn't refuse!! We just improvised...the make-up artist didn't even have 'women's make-up' because he thought he was only doing Marc. That's him, by the way(the make-up artist), under the covers, speaking of improvisation!!"

The Marc Jacobs story was a bit of a fantasy and not a regular home feature so it's even more fun to hear the behind the scenes shenanigans! I was also wondering who was under the covers and now the mystery has been solved!

I love that you got the scoop on this. I always look for more information on images like this and it niggles at me until I track it down. Now I'll just ask you!

Suzy, I know! I wish more people would contact bloggers. It's so exciting when they do!

A, it was such a fun spread. I love peaking into fashion designers homes. I think they are just as good at decorating as they are at fashion.

Jane, you are too funny! I don't always get the inside scoop but I do enjoy trying to find it as well!
