So funny you posted this. I was at most of the Fashion Week shows last week, sometimes with my cousin who works as a designer at David Yurman. She went to the Marc Jacobs after-party and when I asked why he was doing it at the Armory and not the tents she replied "because he can and he's a snob" (she used to work there a few years back. And now this.

Well I guess that anybody at a certain point of their life "tips" people for having stuff done. Until you get caught that is, which eventually will happen if you keep it up...
