Where in the World is Chicago in the Marc Jacobs Ad Campaign?

We've been longtime fans of the wonderfully curious series of Marc Jacobs Collection ads, all featuring unconventional models and shot by fashion photographer Juergen Teller. However, looking at the latest fall/winter 2010–2011 campaign, we discovered something rather peculiar: Chicago has been omitted in the signature list of cities that accompany the print advertisements, even though MJ has staked his territory at the corner of Rush and Walton since February 2010. Maybe the word “Chicago” will somehow mess up the meticulous graphics alignment? —Chai Lee
