Marc Jacobs - Designer of the Year! Manic Marc Jacobs, the man of the blue rinse, won the “Designer of the Year” award at the 11th Annual ACE Awards in New York. No matter what people think of the man, he is a true fashion icon and a credit to his trade if not, regrettably, to the rest of the world. Marc Jacobs is destined to keep designing and winning and generally giving people the hump, so good luck to the gayzer and his fabulous accessories!
