Marc Jacobs channeled Edie Sedgwick on his Spring 2013 runway: Think Factory Girl hair, graphic black-and-white, mod stripes, and even a pop-art reference or two to Micky Mouse. After the show, he explained, "Young girls need to learn that sexiness isn't about being naked," Vogue reports. The ">New York Times got a similar inspiration quote: "There's nothing sexier than a girl covered up," Jacobs said. Of course, his idea of being covered up is probably a little different than your boss's. Check out the low-slung skirts and belly-button-bearing suits after the jump.
