Designer/man about town/West Village colonizer Marc Jacobs is on the latest cover of Interview magazine made up to look like Andy Warhol. To celebrate this honor, today Jacobs had his minions place images of the cover photo (and another from the spread) in the windows of two of his Bleecker Street boutiques. According to WWD, rabid Marc fans will be able to purchase tees ($35) and totes ($15) emblazoned with his Warhol-ed out look at the shops, with proceeds benefiting the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. He knows it's a big wig to fill: On being compared to the legendary artist, Marc said, 'I'm going to get a lot of hell for this.'
