Iconic Fashion Designer Marc Jacobs Proposed To Boyfriend With A Flash Mob At Chipotle

Only Marc Jacobs could make a fast food restaurant proposal cool.

Last night, fashion icon Marc Jacobs has proposed to his boyfriend, model/candlemaker Charly Defrancesco, at a Manhattan location of America’s second or third favourite Mexican chain, Chipotle.

As a lead-up to the big question, Marc had a squad of dancers perform a routine set to Prince’s song “Kiss” inside the restaurant.

The world-renowned designer, who looked like he was about to burst with happiness, shared a video of the flash mob and his proposal on Instagram.

Marc’s now-fiancé Charly Defrancesco also took to Instagram to share the news:

Judging by the video, it looked like Marc and Charly were just finishing up dinner when the flash mob and the burrito-rollers behind the counter doing their thing. In this clip, Charly looked genuinely surprised when his guy drops to one knee and busts out the ring.

It’s an especially impressively cute proposal when you consider that THE Marc Jacobs had hired the flash mob team, get the Chipotle crew to bump that song as they were finishing dinner, and find someone to film the moment when he dropped down on one knee. Ah, to be in love <3

From attending fashion shows together to doing silly stuff in public, the pair who began dating in 2015 is clearly besotted with each other. They are just so cute! Before that, the fashion designer was in a relationship with bike designer Lorenzo Martone.

And ooh, check out Charly’s gigantic blinged-out ring in the video taken from his Instagram Story below:
