Marc Jacobs married his long-standing boyfriend, Charly “Char” Defrancesco in New York on Saturday. The happy couple exchanged vows at a small ceremony, before heading on to the Grill in Midtown Manhattan to celebrate with their guests, including the British stylist Katie Grand, as well as the models Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Gigi and Bella Hadid.

Jacobs and Defrancesco treated their guests to cannabis oil vape pens and customised hoodies which came with a cheeky note that read: "I came to Marc and Char's wedding celebration and all I got was this lousy sweatshirt."

The happy couple were coordinated in dark green with matching diamond and onyx penguin pins; “Penguins have only one partner and mate for life,” Jacobs explained over Instagram, “a great example of faithfulness and fidelity.”
