For A/W 09, Marc Jacobs seems to have taken inspiration from Melanie Griffith a la Working Girl, Sigourni Weaver whilst possessed in Ghostbusters and Grace Jones. Gashes of blush, dark, heavily rimmed eyes, prominent eyebrows, big hair... We kinda like it. Very Lady Ga Ga. Very power suit, 1980s Wall Street (with maybe a teeny hint of Elizabeth Taylor's Cleopatra)... maybe this is the American expat's way of giving the down economy the double-fingered salute.
