>> We already knew Marc Jacob's Fall 2009 show on Monday is going to be a horse of a different color — one or two celebrities, a simpler set, and no plus-ones. Now, a few more concrete details — Marc, legendary in year's past for hosting everyone from Lil' Kim to Kevin Federline to Victoria Beckham to Courtney Love, has eliminated the entire celebrity quotient, so don't expect to see a one. As for the set, it's supposedly being done without — and most of the 700 invited guests will be front row — since the setup is largely monorowed.
As for the matter of plus-ones, Marc Jacobs president Robert Duffy "made an exception for one person, and one person only — and that’s Anna Wintour. Anna gets to bring a guest because she got us our jobs. Anyone else who wants to get us a job, they can have a plus-one, too.” Sounds like we'll be seeing Bee Shaffer, since Anna traditionally brings her to Marc every season.
