It’s been an interesting week in New York. First, the crazy fight between Nicki Minaj and Cardi B happened. Now we’re hearing that Marc Jacobs tried to sabotage Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty fashion show by making his show almost an hour and a half late.
Marc Jacobs has been NYFW closer for the past few years and this year his show was bumped up so that Rihanna could close out the week. His show was slated to start at 6 pm and Rihanna’s was slated to start at 7:30 pm. Marc’s show didn’t start until about 7:30 and overlapped with Rihanna’s show.
Some thought that he purposely started his show late so that editors would have to choose between missing Rihanna’s show or going. Some editors left his show and there were a few empty seats.
Even with the shady move from Marc, Rihanna’s still stole the show.
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.

The Marc Jacobs punctuality genie has clocked off. His #NYFW show is now running 1hr and 17 minutes late, and counting. Some people are leaving, maybe to Rihanna's 7.30pm 'Fenty' show in Brooklyn. One lady just said, 'I have a plane to catch to London.' La vie fashion… pic.twitter.com/cxlqKgxiP1
