Marc Jacobs’s First Kiss Was With a Girl, But It Was Just for Show

by W Magazine Team

Marc Jacobs is proudly and openly gay, but he admits his first kiss was with a girl. He was 9 and at sleepaway camp and all the boys teased him for being gay. So, he grabbed a girl, a classmate named Lauren. “It was more of an ‘I’ll show you I can get a girl’ kind of a thing,” Jacobs concedes. “I wouldn’t say the kiss blew me away. I wouldn’t say it blew her away either!” In his Screen Test with W magazine, Jacobs also recalls the grunge collection and names his favorite designers.
