Congratulations to the happy couple! Marc Jacobs looked effortlessly stunning as he tied the knot with his handsome fiance Charly 'Char' Defrancesco in a lavish wedding ceremony in New York surrounded by close friends and family.

The 55-year-old fashion designer enjoyed a black-tie reception at the swanky Manhattan eatery The Grill, where the couple was joined by a host of A-list models and celebrities, including Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and Emily Ratajkowski.

Stars from all over the world of fashion, film, and music turned out to celebrate with the newlyweds, and among the other people who chose to raise a glass of champagne to the married couple was Rita Ora, Kaia Gerber, Mya, Lil' Kim and Anna Wintour, reports Daily Mail.  

Early in the party, Jacobs and his 37-year-old fiance were seen in chic ensembles, with Char opting for a green velvet dinner jacket with a matching bow-tie, while Jacobs went for the more formal look with a simple Windsor knot tie and lily attached to his lapel. 


Jacobs even shared a photo of his gold wedding band and Art Deco Diamond and Onyx Penguins cufflinks, a gift from Fabio Zambernardi, the design director of both Prada and Miu Mui. He wrote in the caption, "God is in the details. Penguins have only one partner and mate for life. A great example of faithfulness and fidelity."

As fans of the famous fashion designer can recall, Jacobs popped the question in April last year in a Chipotle restaurant loved by his partner with the help of a flash mob. There was even a touching video shared at the time which captured the pair sealing the picture-perfect moment with a kiss, as Prince's hit song 'Kiss' was playing in the background. 

He explained that the pair, who were both born in April, always celebrate their birthdays at the Mexican fast food outlet every year, making it a special place for them. Jacobs revealed in an interview, "It's his favorite restaurant. We have an annual [tradition]. Every year for my birthday we go to Chipotle."


Defrancesco also revealed later, "Moving to New York, being from L.A. I've always loved Mexican food, it's my favorite and it's kinda like a little piece of home even though it's not authentic Mexican food. It's consistent and tastes like Chipotle, no matter what Chipotle you go to."
