The photo was of Marc Jacobs back in the days when he wasn't the tanned, groomed and tattoo-ed person he is today! He spoke out in a recent interview about his transformation....
"I did it for health reasons. I was really very weak. I had been working very hard and I had some stomach problems, so I saw a nutritionist and he recommended that I go to the gym and change my diet and all of that." - On why he changed
"It’s funny: I enjoy clothing more, I enjoy getting my haircut, I enjoy grooming. In a way it kind of helped me to understand more of what the customer sees in terms of fashion. I got to appreciate it more from a first hand point of view. I like to shop, for example, which I never did before.I feel much more secure with my body and in some ways I can relate more to the joys a woman gets in terms of taking care of herself." -On how he can relate to his customer more.
Still, its one hell of a transformation right?
