Tiffany Trump caused quite a stir at New York Fashion Week on Monday night — and it wasn't because of her edgy outfit.
The 23-year-old sat front row at the Philipp Plein show at the New York Public Library, but according to a few attendees, the first daughter's appearance wreaked havoc on the seating assignments because no fashion editors wanted to sit next to her.
Alyssa Vingan Klein, the editor-and-chief of Fashionista.com, claimed on Twitter that seating was a mess because Tiffany was essentially being shunned.

Alone? A few editors tweeted that no one wanted to sit next to Tiffany, and former Wall Street Journal fashion columnist Christina Brinkley shared a photo of the empty seat next to her
'Seating s***show at Philipp Plein because no editors want to sit near Tiffany Trump. SHOCKER,' she wrote.
Nikki Ogunnaike, a senior fashion editor at Elle.com, responded to Alyssa's tweet by revealing that she and her colleagues had moved seats.
'We moved and are down the hall. Come thru,' she wrote.
'Phillip Plein at 10PM: 1 hour late start, editors fleeing just so they don't have to sit behind Tiffany Trump,' Nikki tweeted a few minutes later.
Pictures from the show see Tiffany sandwiched between her friend Andrew Warren and another blonde attendee, but former Wall Street Journal fashion columnist Christina Brinkley shared photos of the empty seat next to her earlier in the night.

Making moves: Nikki Ogunnaike, a senior fashion editor at Elle.com, responded to Alyssa's tweet by revealing that she and her colleagues had moved seats
'Nobody wants to sit next to Tiffany Trump at Philipp Plein, so they moved and the seats by her are empty,' she wrote.
Christina took a photo of the available seats next to Tiffany, adding: 'Empty seats next to Tiffany Trump.'
The writer was also apparently near one of Tiffany's Secret Service agents at the show.
'Tiffany Trump's secret service guy says this is his first fashion show. He is going to get the wrong idea about fashion,' she tweeted.
Supporting the story: Nikki also tweeted that editors had moved to avoid being near Tiffany
Proof? Christina shared photos of Tiffany sitting on the end, with no one next to her, before she switched seats with Andrew

It appears that at some point, Andrew had switched seats with Tiffany, so she would be sandwiched between him and another person.
And while some alleged that the editors had moved because they didn't want to sit next to Tiffany, the fashion show was apparently chaos from the start.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, hundreds of people gathered on the steps of the library, and they had to wait one at a time to get through the revolving door.
Once they sat down, the 9pm show was held until Madonna arrived at 10:15pm, over an hour late. The publication reports that 'one top fashion editor' left the show before it began after learning that they were waiting on the iconic singer.

In addition to Tiffany and Madonna, the star-studded show was filled with A-list stars, including, Kylie Jenner, Tyga, Taylor Hill, Paris and Nicky Hilton, Coco Rocha and more.
'Hot felon' Jeremy Meeks, whose mugshot went viral a few years ago, opened the show for his runway debut, and Lionel Richie's daughter Sofia Richie also strut down the catwalk for the designer.
This was Plein's first presentation in New York after several seasons of him showing in Milan. Ahead of the show, Plein borrowed President Trump's controversial slogan 'Make America Great Again', using the hashtag #LetsMakeNYFWgreatAgain on Instagram.
Despite the alleged controversy surrounding her appearance, Tiffany looked right at home in the front row of the show.

Hold up: One editor reportedly left after learning they were waiting on Madonna. The singer, who is pictured next to Kylie Jenner and Tyga, arrived over an hour late to the show
The University Pennsylvania graduate donned skinny black pants, a leather top, a navy and black coat, which she accessorized with pink pumps and a black choker necklace.
The edgy outfit was a far cry from the elegant frocks she wore in the days leading up to her father Donald's inauguration last month.
Over the weekend, Tiffany modeled a white dress while attending the Taoray Wang show with her mother Marla Maples.
The mother-daughter pair were spotted front row at the runway show at Skylight Clarkson Square on Saturday. Tiffany was also accompanied by her boyfriend, Ross Mechanic.

Fan club: Wang said the president's youngest daughter has been a 'supporter since a long time before the election'
The Chinese fashion designer made the white dress and matching coat that Tiffany wore for her father's inauguration last month, and the ensemble was said to be worth around $2,500-$3,700.
Wang said she gave the 23-year-old the outfit as a gift, but the designer has stated she 'is not political.' She seems to be Tiffany's go-to designer as she was previously seen clad in her clothing during presidential debates.
'I think Tao's aesthetic is just unparalleled. She puts so much effort into the slightest detail,' Tiffany told The Hollywood Reporter.
Wang said the first daughter has been a 'supporter since a long time before the election,' and has ordered pieces before attending Wang's show in 2016.

Tiffany was dressed in Wang's designs during one of the presidential debates. Her interest in the designer drew criticism because of Donald Trump's remarks against China.
The blonde did comment on anything regarding politics and her father.
She added: 'We talked a lot and I think now she really knows my style, so we work closely together.'
But just a few days into the NYFW kickoff, designers have made politically sartorial statements about the new president.

Calvin Klein played This is Not America, and designer Raf Simons sent out white patterned bandanas to attendees in order to promote that message of inclusion, much like the ones Tommy Hilfiger had models wear in his show in California.
Meanwhile, designer Raul Solis, a 32-year-old Mexican immigrant, sent a model wearing 'f*** your wall' down the runway in a clear message to President Trump.
He told W Magazine: 'It’s important to have that message of sexual empowerment, especially now—to say, "Hey, actually, you can do whatever you want."
'I don’t get too political, but obviously [this season] it’s impossible to dismiss.'
