18-year-old Lily McMenamy has landed her first big-name designer campaign, for Marc Jacobs--and all she had to do was take off her top. (Kidding!)
The model newcomer, who famously walked topless at Jacobs' show in February, recently divulged to Vogue that she'll be in the designer's fall ad campaign--a shoot which kept her “in Central Park until 2:00 a.m." Hmm...
As for being asked to walk the runway sans-shirt, McMenamy, the daughter of '90s supermodel Kristen McMenamy, said she didn't see it coming.
"First I couldn’t really believe that they were asking me to go topless, and then they were, like, ‘We’re being serious,’ and so I was, like, ‘All right. Fine,’" she said.
Then Jacobs had to explain the classy way to hold one's breasts in one's hands. According to Vogue:
“Marc and I talked a lot about my hand positioning. I wanted to do this.” [Lily] presses both her palms to her T-shirt. “But he said it’d be much classier with one hand. Like, ‘Oh, Mr. Produuuucer.’ I had to walk three times. When I came backstage after the first, I said, ‘Marc, was it all right?’ and he said, ‘Amazing.’ So I thought, okay, I can do it again.”
Now, the question is, will she be wearing a shirt in Jacobs' fall 2013 ad?
