Leave it to top fashion designer Marc Jacobs to cross-dress without looking tacky and tasteless!

The 49-year-old designer of his namesake fashion house was spotted earlier this year in a black-and-white ensemble, which he wore at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Show 2013 in Berlin.

Iconic Look at Mercedes Benz Fashion Show

His outfit consisted of a white button-down shirt, which he paired with a black A-line knee-length skirt. Note that this is not the first and only time that Marc Jacobs has been seen cross-dressing.

This ensemble is actually much more subdued and dressed down compared to his other cross-dressing looks.

Pushing the Boundaries in High Fashion

Embracing Authenticity and Courage

“It took 57 years to be able to say, ‘I’m not running away.’ I’m here. I’m going to wear this. And, if it’s life-threatening, that is a risk I am willing to take. It shouldn’t be life-threatening, nor should the color of my skin, nor should my sexual preference and nor should whether I wear heels or sneakers,” Marc Jacobs told The Fashionography in an interview.

“If I wore a pair of Nikes, whatever, I would “blend in” a bit more, but I would wear Rick Owens platform boots and Marc Jacobs high-heel shoes and whatever I want to wear,” the American fashion designer added.
