Designer Marc Jacobs talks about his film debut in 'Disconnect' -- EW EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

In Marc Jacobs’ world, sporting a pair of bad dad jeans is more shocking to his staff than a sequin bra. But in Disconnect, Jacobs’ film and acting debut, the famed designer was at the disposal of the costume team and the story.

Jacobs told EW: “I was going to a cabaret inspired Halloween party. I did it as one of the cabaret girls with shorts and a sequin beaded bra and dance shoes and stockings and a top hat and all this glitter, and I came out in that in my fitting room among my design team and no one thought anything of me in a bra and a panty with glitter on the crotch. But then when they had the fittings for the movie, when they saw me, my design team was all in hysterics. I had these really tacky suburban disco shirts with crucifixes embroidered on them, and the worst fitting dad jeans – I never wear jeans anyway – but these were just bad and acid washed with flannel zip jackets sewn to the side. And they put big silver rings on my fingers and earrings. So they just couldn’t stop laughing.”

“Nobody would have recognized me at the Dunkin’ Donuts in Yonkers in my acid washed jean jacket with a hoodie attached and my dad jeans,” he added.

'Revolution': The production designers on creating a world without electricity -- PHOTOS

NBC’s new hit drama Revolution is the narrative answer to a big “What if?” Creator Eric Kripke and fellow executive producers J.J. Abrams and Jon Favreau have taken a close look at how much our society depends on modern technology. The resulting TV show presents the answer to the chilling question “What would happen if all electrical power ceased to work?”

Also playing the “What if?” game is the show’s production design team, creating a new landscape that manages to be both futuristic, speculative fiction and period drama. It’s a world that is both eerily post-apocalyptic and “sometimes bizarrely beautiful,” said Zack Grobler, who oversaw the production design of the show’s pilot.
