Eighteen-year-old Lily McMenamy landed her first big-name designer campaign, for Marc Jacobs! The model newcomer, who famously walked topless at Jacobs’ show in February, recently told Vogue that she will be in the American designer’s fall ad campaign, a shoot which kept her “in Central Park until 2:00 a.m.”
When asked about the time she was requested to walk the runway topless, 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:
“Marc and I talked a lot about my hand positioning. I wanted to do this.” [Lily] presses both her palms to her T-shirt while talking to Vogue. “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.”
