Marc Jacobs In Comme des Garçons – 2012 Met Gala

Marc Jacobs attended the 2012 Met Gala on Monday night in New York City with Alexa Chung and Lorenzo Martone.

I would like to pretend that I’m not shocked by this look as we’ve seen Marc Jacobs wear dresses before, but a lace sheer Comme des Garçons Spring 2012 dress with white boxers is a jaw-dropper.

    This is silly and ridiculous. Even though he is a fashion designer, he shouldn’t be able to get away with this.

    Perhaps i’m shallow or a prude but this is just stupid. I don’t see fashion and I don’t think it’s sexy. It’s tacky and I would feel that way even if it was on a woman.

      I agree. He said that he wore this because hes sick of suits, but couldnt he have just worn the runway version? It still would’ve been different and daring but at least it would have some amount of fashion to it.

        Is this the man who is supposed to be one of the best fashion designers? Was he thinking he was going to a gay pride? Terrible, but bad tasted.

    Ok, from a strictly fashion standpoint:
    White underwear with a black dress? Since when?
    Those shoes are never, ever okay.

    But… this is Marc Jacobs.

      i agree, he should have won black boxers!

        i completely agree. a more modest fellow would’ve worn a jacket, but seeing as he’s feeling bold, why not at least go with black foundation garments?!

        it’s sad because he’s one of the few men in this world who can pull off commes des garcons runway looks if he only styled them better.

    This is not attractive on man or woman.

  5. Ellie May 9, 2012 at 00:49 #

    Haha! Come on, it’s funny!

    • SilentVisitor May 9, 2012 at 03:40 #

      Agree it is fun. I like him……….

  6. J May 9, 2012 at 01:09 #

    he could have at least worn tight, black underwear and better shoes… i’ve hated those every time he’s worn them.

  7. DivaDebbi (Beauty and Fashion Blog) May 9, 2012 at 01:59 #

    He looks ridiculous.

  8. shaun May 9, 2012 at 02:20 #

    someone needs to beat him over the head with those shoes…i mean really..this is the classic case of i use to be fat, now im skinny and fit and everyone look at me.

  9. Christine May 9, 2012 at 02:59 #

    LOL.

  10. michelle May 9, 2012 at 03:40 #

    I like it! Hes definitely working it. It cant be easy to wear a shear dress like that and still look masculine.

    I’ve always admired designers who have not adopted outlandish “celebrity” personas like Phoebe Philo, Sarah Burton, Raf Simons, etc. Marc, we get it, you are no longer the geeky guy from a decade ago but geez, give it a rest.

  12. Dhppy May 9, 2012 at 04:34 #

    That goodness Marc Jacobs remembered to wear his Mayflower puritan buckle shoes or else this could have been embarrassing.

    • Mary Gatto May 9, 2012 at 14:15 #

      LOL

    • CreoleLady May 9, 2012 at 14:53 #

      Best comment EVAH, lmao….

    • EmmaWoodhouse May 9, 2012 at 16:31 #

      OMG that was hilarious :D

  13. Mujid May 9, 2012 at 08:26 #

    I wouldn’t mind this if he didn’t wear the shorts. If you are going to whore for attention, then whore all the way.

  14. Mary May 9, 2012 at 08:26 #

    This is the most random outfit I’ve seen on a guy. Not a good look for him.

  15. noo May 9, 2012 at 10:16 #

    i adore marc! i always wish that he were straight so i could fly to paris and make a move at him! i just think this dress is loads of fun, something only marc can pull off!

  16. Duck May 9, 2012 at 10:30 #

    OMG I can’t believe all the comments on here – get a life guys, it’s only clothing! Saying that the white boxers kind of jar visually, I’d probably wear it with something black on underneath. LOVE the runway version but then again I do prefer several layers :-)

    • Mary Gatto May 9, 2012 at 14:13 #

      “get a life guys, it’s only clothing!”???
      Isn´t it the point of the blog?

  17. Ahot May 9, 2012 at 13:23 #

    N´importe quoi! Simply.

  18. Henrique May 9, 2012 at 14:21 #

    It’s not even funny.

  19. Stephanie May 9, 2012 at 14:47 #

    I KNOW it is only clothing, but if we didn’t have opinions, there would be no fashion blogs, right?

    All I can think is it looks like something from the fairy tale “Emperor’s New Clothes”

  20. EmmaWoodhouse May 9, 2012 at 16:31 #

    This is HORRIFIC in so many ways that my eyes are burning!

  21. Carolina Roq May 9, 2012 at 21:52 #

    I like it! Men should have fun with fashion just like woman. Fan Bingbing always wears ridiculous clothes and some people like it some people don’t.

    Those boxes are terrible and the pirate shoes make it even worse.
