The fan appeared to nudge Linney with a pen to get her attention for her signature, but a man standing next to the actress held out his arm and stopped him from getting too close.
The fan then pushed the arm of the man, who said, “Hey, hey, hey, hey! No, we don’t do that.” Just a few seconds later, the fan then punched the man in the back of the head as he walked away.
A shocked Linney could be seen placing her hand on the man’s shoulder directly following the incident and asking him, "Are you okay?"
"I'm fine,” he replied with a smile before escorting the actress to her car. According to ET, the man was a Fashion Week team member.
The Love Actually star sported a black dress featuring long, ruffled sleeves for her appearance, teaming the look with a pair of strappy black heels.
Linney is a huge fan of the designer and wore one of his creations to last year’s Emmy Awards, walking the red carpet in a tiered white gown with black detailing.
The actress told ET at the show on Friday that Siriano, 37, is "a warm, inviting man who has his priorities in the right place."
"He looks at each person truly individually and designs for them," she explained. "When he dresses me, there's such care that's taken and he knows kind of exactly what to put me in. So it's a real privilege and a pleasure to know him."
