For those who haven't kept up with the Marc Saga, here's a brief run down: Act One: First he gets slammed for a two-hour delay in New York. Suzy Menkes of the International Herald Tribune He calls WWD, curses at the press, says he'll move his show to Paris. He won't. Act Two: Next he debuts the Spring '08 line for Louis Vuitton, after almost a two-hour delay. This time, the show actually is in Paris, but the reaction's the same: He gets booed for the wait. Act Three: On the Vuitton catwalk, Marc sticks out his tongue. Cathy Horyn blogs Act Four: Marc Jacobs posts a comment on Cathy's blog. This is what it says:
I did NOT stick my tongue out at Suzy Menkes……I pulled a stupid face with my tongue out in happiness for being done with what has been a great but most stressful season for me. I am not stupid, childish or a vindictive person….I had prior to the show left a silly t-shirt and a nice note for Suzy on her seat. Why would I do anything to further upset her? Right after a show!!?? Cathy and all else reading this, I am surprised that anyone who knows me at all think that I am that petty or stupid! Anyone who has ever been on a stage would know you can’t actually see the audience. I made a face at no one in particular….I didn’t have a clue as to who was sitting there. Come on guys, give me a break!!!!!
' Act Five: Cathy confirms that the comment was indeed from Marc Jacobs. We jump up and down that Marc reads blogs, interacts with blogs, uses too many exclamation points. Act Six: We consider whether to buy another Marc dress, even though we already know the answer is yes.
