An Open Letter to Marc Jacobs Regarding "BANG"
Dear Marc, This is a very difficult thing for us to say, since we've been your biggest fans forever. We've always idolized you for your creative independence, geekiness, and wallflower chic-meets-grunge aesthetic.

Many expressed outrage as you morphed from chubby, awkward Marc to hot, buff, usually naked Marc. Adjusting to sexy Marc was difficult.
