Marc Jacobs’ photographer Juergen Teller REFUSED to photograph Miley Cyrus for her Spring 2014 ad campaign. Marc told WWD: ‘I have worked with Juergen for years and love him as an artist. He just didn’t want to shoot her.’ But Teller did do the Marc by Marc Spring 2014 ads.
David Sims, who also shot Jacobs’ beauty campaign, filled in, capturing Miley alongside models Natalie Westling and Esmerelda Seay Reynolds on a beach set. ‘We wanted this beach with girls kind of sulky and broody, and we thought it would be cool if it was Miley with what could be two friends, feeling distant and quite dark.
We all just love her and her entire being, her energy, her talent, her intelligence, everything. There’s nothing I don’t like about her. She is just genuine and very natural.’
