Marc Jacobs’ VMAs Look Featured Red Slippers Like Dorothy’s in ‘The Wizard of Oz’

A few clicks of the the heels may not have brought him home, but Marc Jacobs still channeled “The Wizard of Oz” lead Dorothy with his ruby red slippers at last night’s MTV VMAs.

The toes of Jacobs’ jeweled red heels were barely visible — most of the shoe hidden underneath his pant legs — as he walked the red carpet at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. The designer wore an olive green suit from his eponymous label with a matching tie.

This year’s VMAs marked a memorable career achievement for Jacobs, as he was awarded MTV’s first-ever Fashion Trailblazer Award. In addition to accepting the honor, Jacobs and his design team worked with MTV to develop a multimedia red carpet activation for the event, complete with a photographer.

The fashion icon was one of several celebrities to opt for an androgynous look on the red carpet, with other men also selecting outfits with heels, sequins and other feminine details.
