Their appearance on holiday together started rumours that they were rekindling their romance.
But Marc Jacobs looked more interested in his book than his ex-boyfriend Lorenzo Martone yesterday.
As the fashion designer relaxed on the beach his former fiance tried to grab his attention in a pair of tight white shorts.
Marc and Lorenzo have been taking a break in St. Barts and look to be still close despite breaking off their engagement last year.
Jacobs, 48, wore an understated pair of black swimming trunks and was quite content to just bathe in the sun.
Lorenzo, however, had different ideas and appeared to be trying his hardest to grab Marc’s attention.
He wore a very tight pair of white trunks and accessorised it with a cream silk head scarf.
Lorenzo, who is an advertising executive, turned the beach into his own private fashion shoot.
He took a couple of pictures of a sunbathing Jacobs before turning the iPhone on himself and smiling for the camera.
Dressing like Rambo wasn’t enough for Martone as he showed just how he manages to keep his tattooed body in such good shape.
Equipped with his headphones he headed off for a jog along Saline Beach before going for a dip in the sea.
Marc hardly batted an eyelid and stayed enthralled by his book The Petting Zoo by Jim Carroll.
The creative director of Louis Vuitton was on the beach with one of his own trusty Marc Jacobs handbags and took full advantage of the Caribbean sun.
The couple, who got engaged in March 2009, called it quits last year with Martone announcing the news via Twitter in July 2010.
He posted: ‘thanks for t notes. yes, I saw t press today,’ he wrote. ‘We are not together, haven’t been in 2 months. And we will not comment on it. Sorry. We r fine (sic).’
These holiday pictures though would suggest that there may be something still between them.
