It's not often that publications have the guts to run long articles about the dwindling appeal of a certain major designer, but the Times did just that about Marc Jacobs, who receives his Lifetime Achievement Award from the CFDA on Monday. The FIT students, market analysts, trend forecasters, bloggers, and stylists that spoke to the paper have decided, apparently, that Jacobs just isn't what he once was. Maybe they just hate him because he's skinny? [NYT]
