Unconfirmed reports surfaced yesterday that designer Marc Jacobs and Brazilian ad exec Lorenzo Martone tied the knot over the holidays in a private ceremony in St. Barth’s. They looked like a couple of honeymooners in photographs of them enjoying the sun and romantic strolls on the beach, but that’s not what got people talking. The real chatter started when Larry Gagosian hosted a party in honor of Jacobs and Martone with plenty of speeches and a tiered wedding cake with toppers that looked like the happy couple, WWD reports.
Turns out everyone was jumping to conclusions. A spokeswoman for the designer insists to WWD that this was not a wedding, and the two are still happily engaged. Don’t you eat wedding cake and make speeches about your friends at random parties in their honor? No? Well, neither do we. Something tells us we haven’t heard the last of this rumor.
