The 15 Best Marc Jacobs Looks to Ever Hit the Red Carpet
There are a lot of talented designers on the scene these days, but few hold as much history and esteem as birthday boy Marc Jacobs, who turns 51 on Wednesday. The fashion icon and former Louis Vuitton creative director is not only a style star himself — one who's never afraid to grace the red carpet in everything from dapper tuxes to insane lace shirt dresses — but he's also responsible for coming up with fabulous creations for his very own Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs labels. And with his years of fashion know-how and standing in the industry, it's no surprise that Jacobs has churned out some real showstoppers on the red carpet throughout his career. From Anna Wintour and Kerry Washington to Kate Moss and Sarah Jessica Parker, click through to see 15 famous faces who are fans of the famed designer — and who have nailed it on the red carpet in his designs.
Miley Cyrus at the 2013 FGI Night of Stars Gala
Leighton Meester at a 2010 'Country Strong' Premiere
From the lace detailing and asymmetric cut to the hammered-gold embellishment and gorgeous red hue, Meester’s premiere number was a classic Marc Jacobs beauty.
Sophia Coppola at the 2013 Met Gala
It may be kind of insane, but the film director and Jacobs’s close friend looked impossibly chic in the silk, pajama-inspired set she donned at the punk-themed 2013 Met Gala.
Kate Moss at a 'Kate: The Kate Moss Book' Launch
A supermodel like Moss deserves to wear only the most glamorous gowns out there, and this shiny, gold Marc Jacobs number — which fit the Brit beauty like a glove — definitely fit the bill.
Hailee Steinfeld at 'The Dark Night Rises' New York Premiere
Jacobs has a knack for creating printed pieces that look not only playful, but also super chic, and the floral-patterned dress the starlet donned at The Dark Knight Rises movie premiere was no exception.
Nicole Richie at the 2013 CFDA Awards
Not that Richie ever looks anything less than amazing, but she really had us drooling when she showed up to the CFDA Awards in this liquid gold Marc Jacobs number that read luxe glamour all over.
Hillary Swank at the 2012 amFAR Inspiration Gala New York
Looking more like a sophisticated Oscar de la Renta or Carolina Herrera design than a Marc Jacobs creation, Swank was the picture of elegance in her cap-sleeve, tea-length number.
Sarah Jessica Parker at a 2013 Press Event
If there’s anyone who can pull off Jacobs’s edgy designs like a pro, it’s style icon SJP, who made this metallic striped number look ultra-casual (but so chic) on the red carpet.
Anna Wintour at the 2012 CFDA Awards
The Vogue EIC has been a Jacobs supporter practically from the start, and for a good reason: She absolutely shines in his designs, especially in this perfectly fitting, printed sheath dress.
Kerry Washington at a 2013 ABC Event
The Scandal star has been spotted in Marc Jacobs designs quite often over the years, but it was this simple, all-leather, red-hot dress that was one of her sexiest looks of all.
Elle Fanning at the 2011 Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards
We love when Jacobs’s takes a stab at ultra-feminine styles, and this girly, floral-embroidered creation was one of his most fascinating works of art to date.
Alexa Chung at the 2012 Met Gala
An off-the-shoulder leather dress atop a crisp, white button down may not sound like the making of a legendary outfit, but Chung proved otherwise at the annual gala.
Rose Byrne at the 'X-Men: First Class' New York Premiere
With its scoop neck, structured shoulders, and stunning lace detailing, Byrne’s Marc Jacobs look was bound to be an instant hit.
Rachel Zoe at the 2010 Met Gala
It’s hard to imagine a look more luxe and fabulous than this dandelion-yellow, draped velvet dress that the designer and stylist absolutely shone in at the 2010 Met Gala.
Lena Dunham at the 2014 Point Honors New York Gala
She may have just worn this look earlier in the week, but Dunham made sure this sequined beauty is set to go down as one of Jacobs’s best-ever red carpet gowns.
