So Miley Cyrus is the new face of Marc Jacobs eh? Shouldn’t we have seen this coming – I mean she has been sporting a lot of his duds lately. First in a punk inspired long sleeve mesh dress at the Met Gala, then looking pretty hot in the green sequinned number at the 30th annual Night Of Stars gala, she features on one of his “Protect the Skin You’re In” tees, and has been instagraming selfies of her in a Marc Jacobs’ tee.

The SS14 ad campaign sees a moody Miley on a dark beach wearing an outfit of embellishment (jacket, shorts, and ankle boots). There seems to be a trend forming here; Rihanna for Balmain, Lady Gaga for Versace and now Miley Cyrus is the new face of Marc Jacobs. Who will be the next celebrity “face of” and for which brand?
