Marc Jacobs and Lorenzo Martone were rumored to have been very close to getting married just a few months ago, but now have split. Today, Lorenzo made it official and tweeted that they are broken up. "thanks for t notes. yes, I saw t press today. We are not together, haven't been in 2 months. And we will not comment on it. Sorry. We r fine."
More fashion notes - the newly single Marc Jacobs says he wasn't worried about stripping off for his latest fragrance campaign.
The fashion designer appears almost naked in the adverts for his new men's scent Bang - which he co-created with fragrance firm Coty and business partner Robert Duffy - but was always quietly confident the final results would look good.
He said: "Rob decided I was in pretty good shape and I ran with it. I wasn't nervous at all - I keep in shape and go the gym a lot anyway so no I didn't have to do much preparing. I've been working out forever. I take pride in grooming."
Marc - who launched his first menswear fragrance with an exclusive party in London last night (22.07.10) - recently revealed how he'd chosen the name Bang because the moniker had a "sexual connotation".
He said: "The name came to me first. We had been approached by Coty to do another men's scent - we did one many years ago - and I was in the gym, and the name Bang came to me.
"As a word, it has so many connotations, including a sexual connotation. And I loved the immediacy and the sound of the word. For me, fragrance is always a multilayered process - Bang was the catalyst for how this fragrance came to be. You're drawn to try it, to experience it."
