Happy Birthday - Marc Jacobs !

Fashion designer, groundbreaker, icon Marc Jacobs turns 51 today! But what do you get a guy who has pretty much everything? Our heartfelt love and gratitude, that's what. So to celebrate the man, the myth, the legend here are six reasons we adore Marc Jacobs.

"Who me?"  Marc Jacobs in a Commes Des Garcons dress and his boxers at the 2012 Met Gala

Because before all you ladies rocked that undies-showing-through-your-dress thing, Marc did it first.

Victoria Beckham, Marc Jacobs, and Kate Moss at the 2011 British Fashion Awards Because he has the coolest friends and gets to hang out with these ladies.

Marc Jacobs plays the buffer between Lady Gaga and Madonna backstage at his spring 2010 show. KIDDING. And THESE.

 Marc Jacobs and Robert Duffy Because he dressed up like a bird for his 2011 holiday party and totally owned it.

Marc Jacobs before the Louis Vuitton spring 2014 runway show at Paris Fashion Week  Because Marc sometimes goes to work in his pajamas and carries his stuff in a dopp kit. Marc. Because he can.

Louis Vuitton spring 2013 runway show  Because there ain't runway show, like a Marc Jacobs runway show. Remember the glorious sets he created for Louis Vuitton? The mod escalators, the train pulling into the station, er, venue the tent outside the Louvre, and the freakin' carousel?! Thank goodness he has his own line--still dying over postapocalytic beach scene from spring 2014--to continue the mind-blowing fun.

Because even though his designs may be on the aspirational end of the spectrum, Marc still makes high fashion accessible to all through innovative social media, live-streaming his runway shows (everyone's FRONT ROW, yo) and casting his fall campaign via Instagram .
