On Saturday Marc Jacobs married his longtime beau Charly “Char” Defrancesco. The star-studded ceremony was held at the Seagram Building in Manhattan. Jacobs and Defrancesco both wore bespoke Huntsman suits with custom Gucci boots and Louboutin sneakers, respectively.

Their guest list was a veritable who’s who of the fashion industry: Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Anna Wintour, Katie Grand, Bella and Gigi Hadid, and Kaia Gerber were among the many that celebrated with the grooms. Finally, the cutest detail of all, guests left with a hoodie designed by Scott Campbell that features two otters holding hands, with the words “don’t float away” written underneath. Congrats you two!

Looking back on his success the profile highlights many of the designer’s famous fans — including Kate Moss and David Beckham. But Jones reveals that he has his share of critics as well. “We all get trolled because we’re in the public eye,” he says. “It’s jealousy – go and work hard, go and sacrifice a lot of things in your life to do what you want to do and love. These jobs are not an easy ride. I wouldn’t change it for the world – I have a really amazing life, but I’ve worked and sacrificed for it.”
