First daughter Tiffany Trump was left sitting alone in the front row of a New York Fashion Week show after several fashion editors reportedly refused to sit next to her.
Reports from those at the event said the 23-year-old first daughter’s arrival at the Philipp Plein show at the New York Public Library caused a stir as the seating arrangement was hastily reshuffled, according to the Daily Mail.
“Nobody wants to sit next to Tiffany Trump at Philipp Plein, so they moved and the seats by her are empty,” tweeted former Wall Street Journal fashion columnist Christina Binkley.
Fashionista.com’s top editor Alyssa Vingan Klein called it a “seating s***show” and joked that it was a “SHOCKER” that none of the editors wanted to be near the president’s daughter.
Senior fashion editor Nikki Ogunnaike of Elle.com responded to Klein’s tweet, saying that she and other editors “moved and are down the hall” and invited Klein to join them.
Trump, who walked the runway during the previous year’s fashion week, ended up sitting between two friends, including aspiring designer Andrew Warren.
Also in attendance at the event, which started roughly an hour late, were Kylie Jenner, Tyga, Taylor Hill, Paris and Nicky Hilton, Coco Rocha and Madonna. Several noteworthy personalities appeared on the catwalk, including “Hot Felon” Jeremy Meeks and Lionel Richie’s daughter, newcomer Sofia Richie, notes the Pret-a-Reporter.
Although Plein referenced President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” with the show’s headline “Let’s Make NYFW Great Again,” he refrained from making outright political statements like some of the other designers during the week, nor did he make any mention of Tiffany Trump’s show of support in the front row.
“Let’s do things a little bit differently, because it’s time for changes — across the fashion industry,” Plein said in his introduction.
