Marc Jacobs has poked fun at his accidental nude photo by "leaking" his new favourite campaign photo.

The fashion designer set tongues wagging when a naked picture of him, which was apparently meant to have been a direct message, appeared on his Instagram account on Monday night.

He was quick to take the snap down, but not before people screen-grabbed the revealing shot. When he realised his mistake, Marc took the mishap in his stride and began to upload pictures from his latest Autumn/Winter 15 campaign, one of which he captioned with a humorous line.

"This next photo I am "leaking" is one of my very favorites photographed by David Sims... (sic)" he wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of Sofia Coppola wearing a tweed black-and-grey jacket with a skunk-like trim at the top and matching bag.

This next photo I am "leaking" is (along with Chers portrait) one of my very favorites from this "album" photographed by David Sims of our Fall/Winter collections. I met Sofia Coppola just after I showed my now "credited" (by some!) GRUNGE collection for Perry Ellis in 1992. Sofia was one of the few who recognized something special and related to what I was doing at that time. She wanted to meet me, and when we did, it was love at first sight for me! Not only was I attracted to how she looked, her sense of style, I was drawn to her manner. Her behavior, her life, her ambitions and creativity... She represented everything I am drawn to- Talent, style, creativity, a unique "vision and voice". She had then and has now an interest in fashion not as an art but rather part of the "art of living". Like good books, good music, beautiful interiors, art. She makes films that are creative and unique in their tone. While they do have a style they are not the "block buster Hollywood" type movies that adhere to a formula or an accepted commercial cast. We became great friends immediately. Over the years she has appeared in the ads we did. The first campaign was for Fall/Winter 2000. The next our first fragrance in 2001 photographed by Juergen Teller. She later would be the subject of a portrait painted by the artist Elizabeth Peyton. Sofia and I went on to collaborating for handbag collections both at our company and for Louis Vuitton (while I was there) and later sat for my final Vuitton campaign photographed by Steven Meisel. She has also directed our recent television commercial for our fragrance DAISY (equally inspired by my love for her film THE VIRGIN SUICIDES). I write all of this to say, that from that point of my life and to this day, I am so deeply inspired by that time in my life. Meeting Sofia, having met and worked with Steven, the many years I collaborated with Juergen Teller, the work of David Sims and the late Corinne Day. As I write this and look at all the portraits of David's beautiful campaign, it touches me so deeply to see the profound effect this cast has on my life and work. Special thanks to Katie, David, Guido, Diane, Stefan and my team.

He praised the American filmmaker, gushing about her sense of style, ambitions and creativity.

Luckily his fans reassured him after his risqué move, with one user commenting that the fashion star should have "no shame" in sharing his "beautiful backside".

Also starring in Marc's new ads is model Emily Ratajkowski, who smoulders at the camera wearing a black-and-white cover-up in a similar style to Sofia's trim and bag. Her eyebrows are bold and her hair is styled in a messy up-do. Again, Marc recalled how he first met the "sweet" and "energetic" brunette beauty and his love for her.

"As a sports illustrated swim suit model, as an actor in GONE GIRL and an all around sweet, fun and friendly woman- thank you for bringing your brand of red hot sex appeal and glamour to this David Sims portrait from our Fall/Winter campaign. (sic)" he said, referring to photographer David, who shot the ads.
