What makes them haute:

He’s in charge of four powerhouse fashion labels: The Marc Jacobs Collection, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Little Marc, and Louis Vuitton (he’s their creative director), but this NYC born designer doesn’t seem overwhelmed. Instead, the Marc Jacobs empire continues to expand, first with the launch of its e-commerce store at marcjacobs.com, and then with Bookmarc, a chic new bookstore on the corner of Bleecker and W. 11th Street. Jacobs also launched a photography book entitled

The Men and Women of Marc Jacobs, which documents employees of his eponymous fashion brand, from which a percentage of proceeds will go towards charity. In 2010 Jacobs was also listed by Time Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world.
