He apologized for the hour and a half delay

Remember the speculation that Marc Jacobs pulled the ultimate petty move and delayed his show to make editors miss Rihanna's Savage X show? Well, he's set the record straight on Instagram, but with no mention about Rihanna's show (or apology to her).

"I sincerely apologize to anyone and everyone who was inconvenienced by my lateness at our Spring/Summer 2019 fashion show," Jacobs posted to Instagram. "For anyone interested, below is not a list of excuses but rather a list of facts. I fully understand people have plans, lives, commitments, flights, families to return to, etc and that I fully RESPECT."

While Anna Wintour didn't leave the show as many had thought and feared, many others had to move on with their lives as the usually on-time designer was nearly 90 minutes late starting his NYFW SS19 runway. Jacobs addressed the potential personal plans people may have needed to get to, but didn't point out the glaring time conflict: Rihanna's 9 p.m. show, which snagged the NYFW finale from him.

The #facts (not excuses) that Jacobs shared included that he "believed" on the eve of the show that it'd be on time, he found out it'd be an hour late at 3:30 p.m. but told attendees there'd be only a half-hour delay, and that (basically) shit happens. "If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans," Jacobs quoted, and asked people for a bit more sensitivity and flexibility. Read the full apology, below.

He announced the news today

On Monday, Bernie Sanders announced that he is running for president again, after he lost the primary in 2016 to Hillary Clinton. And although he was very popular during the 2016 election, his announcement is drawing mixed reactions online.

Many of his previous supporters, including celebrities like Mark Ruffalo, were excited about him joining the 2020 race, voicing their support of his announcement.

But others seem to want him to disappear, even pretending not to know who he is. And these reactions have turned out, in some cases, to be hilarious.

The lack of excitement for his announcement may be because of the recent allegations of sexual assault which apparently occurred within his 2016 campaign, and which he claims he didn't know about. It could also be due to his base, who supported him even after he lost the primary to the detriment of Clinton's campaign.

Some are also calling out the fact that Clinton has been effectively shunned following her loss, while Sanders seems to be being welcomed back with open arms.

The pieces will take your athleisure look to the next level

American Apparel just dropped its first activewear line since the brand's relaunch last year, and I can already tell that these looks are going to make up my entire summer wardrobe.

The new line, called FORWARD, offers a variety of styles in lightweight fabrics like flyweight satin, which is an imitation of boxing gear; lame tricot; and cotton Spandex. All of the fabrics feature a four-way stretch, making the clothes "suitable for training but also designed for life outside the gym."

With the collection, American Apparel also launched an inclusive campaign called How We Play, which shows a diverse range of models, including blind Paralympic runner David Brown and curvy yoga instructor Luisa Fonseca.

The collection's styles offer a wide range of looks which will fit with just about any aesthetic, whether you're going hard at the gym or looking for a casual off-day outfit. Personally, I'm excited about the iridescent looks and the rainbow patterned bra and bottoms, which I will definitely be rocking at Pride this year.

The entire line is also super-affordable, capping out at $48, with most products priced in the $20-to-$30 range. You can shop FORWARD collection online, now.
