Marc Jacobs has done it again (and again, and again)!
After recruiting a gaggle of LGBT icons – including Bette Midler, Sandra Bernhard, Lana Wachowski, and our very own Milk – for his SS16 campaign, comes today’s news that Milk’s boyfriend, esteemed ballet dancer James “JbDubs” Whiteside, joins queer goddess Beth Ditto as the latest faces for the campaign.
Photographed by David Sims, the first image features Beth Ditto along with her wife, Kristin Ogata, which Jacobs captioned: “The REAL wives of Portland.”
The second images features a star-spangled Milk (AKA Dan Donigan) locking lips with his lovah, Whiteside, alongside one of Jacobs’ all-time favorite girls, Guinevere Van Seenus, as well as models Bella Hadid (daughter or Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster), Julia Nobis, and Cierra Skye.
“The energy on set was fun and frenetic,” Whiteside tells us. “David [Sims] and Marc were a blast to work with and I’m so honored that I could make out with my boyfriend in the name of fashion. I adore how small I look, since Dan is in heels. It’s like the gender monster is looming over me and seducing me at the same time.”
If that wasn’t enough, Jacobs also shared new images featuring actress Juliette Lewis and a new still of Bette Midler alongside her daughter, actress Sophie von Haselberg.
