It was a fairy-tale wedding with an unconventional cast: Marc Jacobs, the New York designer, and his betrothed, Charly “Char” Defrancesco, a modern-day chandler with the build of a modern-day goliath, danced the night away in the shadow of a cake taller than either. Seven hundred friends and family attended, including a few crashers (not us!) and enough famous fairy godmothers to stock a Disney studio for the next hundred years: Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Bette Midler, Anna Wintour and Lil’ Kim.

On Saturday night, behind the swaying metal curtains of the Grill and the Pool (née the Four Seasons), Philip Johnson’s modernist masterpiece on East 52nd Street, the guests descended. They had come from all over (people in the industry joked about “fashion buses” arriving for the weekend), super-fit per usual, but bloated with anticipation.

Bryanboy, a.k.a. Bryan Grey Yambao, the blogger-turned-fashion influencer whose early adoration of the Marc Jacobs label led Mr. Jacobs to name a bag in his honor, flew from Sweden to attend.

“There was this expectation that it was going to be the wedding of the century,” he said. “And it was.”
