Miley Cyrus' "Protect The Skin You're In" Marc Jacobs Campaign

Miley Cyrus is getting mass media attention, as per usual, for showing some skin! But never fear, as much as the nay-sayers might criticize her for showing off her long and lean legs ad impressive body with crop tops and so-tiny-they-barely-exist shorts, this time Miley is baring it all for a good cause.

Miley teamed up with Marc Jacobs for the "Protect The Skin You're In" campaign, which raises awareness on sun protection and donates proceeds to the New York University Skin Cancer Institute. Skin cancer is unfortunately an illness that seems to be taken less seriously than other forms of the disease, so we are happy that this racy campaign is getting heads turning and mouths talking about the real issue at hand -- skin cancer.

The special edition tee sold out online and crashed the site, prompting Marc Jacobs' camp to instruct fans and supporters to purchase the t-shirt directly from their local Marc Jacobs retailer. Unfortunately, for those of us not living in a major retail area, there are no Marc Jacobs stores nearby so we'll have to wait for online orders to be back up and running.

At only $35, we think this tee is totally worth the money. The special t-shirt will also be for sale in Europe soon as well. As much as Miley may get mixed feelings from media critics and cynical people in the Twittersphere, we love her for continually standing up for the issues she believes in.

What do you think? Would you buy the Protect The Skin You're In t-shirt? Weigh in in the comments section.

  1. I wouldn't buy her shirt, but I do like some of the others like the Victoria Beckham shirt or the Milla Jovovich one!

    1. Haha yes Miley is most definitely hit or miss for people. I really like Victoria's shirt as well!
