Marc Jacobs is being accused of trying to sabotage Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty fashion show.
Wednesday night marked the final day of NYFW and it was supposed to end with both Marc Jacobs and Rihanna presenting.
Traditionally, Marc Jacobs has held down the grand finale of fashion week spot with his show starting at 6pm on the dot. However, this year Rihanna decided to schedule her Savage x Fenty lingerie show for 7:30pm — making HER the closing presenter.
Marc Jacobs didn’t come out swinging at Rihanna for stealing his thunder, but after being known for starting his shows prompt every single year …. somehow this year his show started nearly an hour and a half late.
A slight delay would be odd, but understandable. The fact that Marc started over an hour behind schedule forcing people to choose between his closing show and Rihanna’s seems super shady…and people noticed.
Priceless: Rumors that Marc Jacobs held his 6pm show late tonight to spite Rihanna – by making people miss her 7:30pm Fenty show – for taking his NYFW-closing time slot.

Also: Marc Jacobs starting late is an affront and attack against Rihanna’s show.

Some empty front row seats at @marcjacobs as the show stretches toward being an hour-and-a-half late starting. @rihanna @SavageXFenty show starting soon in Brooklyn, and some editors will be missing it. #NYFW18 pic.twitter.com/vAA3qwy2pa

AP on why Rihanna was forced to start her show late. It's because MJ started later than scheduled: "Marc Jacobs' staff said the issue was an errant clothing delivery, no doubt caught in rush-hour traffic, exacerbated by the rain."

Well…we won’t be expecting to see Rihanna in Marc Jacobs anytime soon. Do you think he tried to mess up her show time on purpose?
