Did the Philipp Plein show at New York Fashion week become an awkward game of musical chairs because of Tiffany Trump, 23? Rumors are swirling that fashion editors refused to sit near her out of their frustration with her day, the President — but we know the real story.
Could Donald Trump‘s politics be bleeding into every corner of our culture? Well, yes, of course it is, but how much trouble does that spell for the President’s 23-year-old daughter, Tiffany Trump? After Tiffany attended the Philipp Plein‘s show at NYFW, it was reported that Donald’s youngest daughter was shunned by fashion editors who wanted nothing to do with the First Daughter, least of all sit next to her at the show, according to DailyMail. It was further reported that Tiffany had the awkward misfortune of trying to avoid pop superstar Madonna, 58, who has been very vocal about his dislike for her father. In fact, several editors attending the show even took pictures of Tiffany sitting alone in the front row of the show.

“Seating sh*tshow at Philipp Plein because no editors want to sit near Tiffany Trump. SHOCKER,” tweeted Alyssa Vingan Klein, the editor-and-chief of Fashionista.com. You can see the empty seat next to Tiffany in the tweet above, from Wall Street Journal fashion columnist Christina Binkley. And Nikki Ogunnaike, a senior fashion editor at Elle.com, added fuel to the fire with a response and follow-up to Klein’s revelation. “We moved down the hall,” she replied before adding, “Phillip [sic] Plein at 10PM: 1 hour late start, editors fleeing just so they don’t have to sit behind Tiffany Trump.”
However, despite reports and these tweets, we have discovered the truth about what was really going on in that picture above. The seats next to Tiffany at the Philipp Plein show were reserved for the CEO’s girlfriend and sister, according to an EXCLUSIVE HollywoodLife.com source. In fact, several fashion editors took it upon themselves to sit there and were later asked to move by the show’s organizers, causing a bit of a scene to make way for the CEO’s family. As for the picture of Tiffany sitting all by her lonesome, well, our source insists it was taken in the short amount of time between the editors getting up to leave and the family taking their assigned seats. And as for Madonna, there was no need for Tiffany to “avoid” the singer; despite both attending the show and sitting front row, Tiffany headed home right after the show as it was “late and she had work to do,” according to our source.
The presentation, held at the New York Public Library, was Plein’s first at New York Fashion Week. You might have seen it talked about already, thanks to Jeremy ‘Hot Felon’ Meeks making his runway debut during the show. Obviously, it was the place to be.
HollywoodLifers, what do you make of the way Tiffany Trump was treated at NYFW? Is she guilty by association or should she be given a pass because she doesn’t work at the White House?
