Bella, Gigi Hadid at Marc Jacobs show 2022 in New York

But the show was about much more than model makeovers. When guests such as Emily Ratajkowski and Selling Sunset star Christine Quinn took their seats, they found show notes with a quote from the German philosopher Nietzsche: “We have art in order not to die of the truth.” In his own words, Jacobs got equally deep by focusing on the concept of choice. Whether or not he wrote them before the Supreme Court eliminated the constitutional right to an abortion, his conclusion took on a new meaning in an America post-Roe v. Wade: “We share our [creative] choices in contrast to the ongoing brutality and ugliness of a world beyond our insulated but not impermeable walls.”
