No One Wanted To Sit Next To Tiffany Trump At Fashion Week

by Christie Grimm · February 14, 2017

As adjacent First Daughter (let's be real - Second to Ivanka), it is only natural that Tiffany Trump's first official appearance since her father took office would be a tour of New York Fashion Week. 

However, Tiff's presence caused quite an issue for show planners in the seating department - and not just because of her secret service detail. Just take a look at this photo taken by author and former WSJ fashion columnist Christina Brinkley from yesterday's Philipp Plein runway show at the New York Public Library.

Think her spacious setup is because she and her infamous rich kid friends Gaia Matisse and Andrew Warren are VIPs? Puh-lease. It's Fashion Week. Even Anna Wintour herself has to squish in to make room on the front row. According to those on the scene, the show was an hour late in starting, and the anxious editors who were supposed to be seated next to Tiffany decided to take a stand and move as far away from her and her pink Valentino rockstud pumps as they could.

"Philipp Plein at 10PM: 1 hour late start, editors fleeing just so they don't have to sit behind Tiffany Trump," Binkley tweeted.

And she wasn't the only showgoer to comment. Alyssa Vingan Klein (EIC of Fashionista.com) also tweeted, "Seating shitshow at Philipp Plein because no editors want to sit near Tiffany Trump. SHOCKER."

Sad? Maybe. Still - it's hard to feel bad for someone who basically just nabbed themselves a private front row at Fashion Week.
