Anna Wintour Reveals Why She Cried at Kanye West’s Fashion Show
It’s really not what you think.
Vogue’s EIC Anna Wintour went on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Tuesday night (Apr. 12, 2016) where she got super real about Kanye West’s fashion show. Except it was less about the Yeezy show/Life of Pablo concert, and more about how she cried after getting lost in Madison Square Garden.
“After 45 minutes I did happen to notice that Jay Z had slid away, so I thought maybe I could sneak out after him without anybody noticing,” she told Meyers. “I slid into the basement of Madison Square Garden, and I was lost there for half an hour asking various people to let me out. I don’t know if you’ve ever been into the basement of Madison Square Garden—”
The late night host jokingly quipped that maybe she shouldn’t wear sun glasses inside. “Anyway,” Wintour continued. “I was really in tears, and then this little security guard came up to me and said, ‘Did your son play baseball for Collegiate (School)?’ And I said yes. He said, ‘Oh, I was his coach, can I help you?’ And I said, ‘Yes, please take me out of here.'”
However, just for the record, she thought West’s MSG show was wonderful, despite the fact that she didn’t actually stay to watch the whole thing. Watch below.
