He may be stepping down, but Marc Jacobs is clearly on the rise. The former creative director of Louis Vuitton won our annual reader poll to name the most popular designer of the year, and it's with good reason: the man is just good at what he does.
This year was a particularly big one for him, considering it saw the end of his era-defining stint at Vuitton. His final bow was quite the spectacle! But it shouldn't come as much of a surprise. Throughout his 16-year tenure, Jacobs marched models out of an old-style locomotive, spun them around a merry-go-round, and sent them down the runway in nurse whites, giving us many highlights to look back on long after he's gone. In honor of his prize, here are our favorite MJ+LV moments.
