Marc Jacobs surprised many of us this past March when he decided to create a personal Instagram account, just months after he told Vogue's Suzy Menkes he found social media "appalling."
Well, he must still be getting the hang of the app because it appears he publicly posted a nude, waist-down photo of himself that he intended to be a direct message on Monday night. He quickly deleted the photo, but a screenshot of it, captioned "It's yours to try!" was sent to Gawker by a tipster and can be seen partially below. Head over to Gawker for the full (and slightly more scandalous) photo.
It's not the first time one of the brand's executives has gotten nearly nude on the Internet and then deleted the evidence, but this was certainly an extreme instance. Granted, Jacobs has some experience with public partial nudity via the ads for his Bang fragrance. In a way, the social media snafu is more or less on-brand for the designer.
We're not sure if it's related, but the brand posted the below tweet shortly after Gawker posted the photo.
Update: Marc Jacobs, the person, apparently replied to a couple inquiries in the comments section of another Instagram about his fall campaign. Screenshot of his wonderfully unapologetic response below.
