She's one of the most influential people in the fashion industry, so you'd expect Anna Wintour to be looked after by fashion designers at their shows. But the Vogue editor-in-chief attended Kanye West's collection preview at Madison Square Garden in New York earlier this year, and found herself in a bit of bother.
Pictures from 38-year-old Kanye's event show Anna, 66, sitting alone for half an hour, but she hadn't created a force field to keep D-list celebrities away; she was just waiting for Kim Kardashian and co. to take their seats.
Anna Wintour tried to slip away from Kanye West's fashion show
Anna was then treated to/endured a performance from rapper Kanye, before he showed his new Yeezy designs. Appearing on Late Night with Seth Myers, Anna revealed Kanye's best mate Jay-Z slipped away after 45 minutes and she decided to do the same.
Except she ended up slipping away in the basement of Madison Square Garden. Where she wandered around aimlessly for half an hour, almost reduced to tears.
She ended up in the basement, but isn't holding a grudge
Picture it: Anna in her huge sunglasses, walking around a dark basement and shouting for help in her crisp, British accent. But in a relieving twist of fate, Anna managed to find a security guard who used to be her son's baseball coach, and he led her to freedom.
It's shouldn't be a funny story, but we really can't help but laugh. A lot.
Luckily Anna doesn't seem too traumatised by the events and clearly isn't holding a grudge, as she used the interview to share her love for Kanye's two-year-old daughter North.
But the moral of the story is; don't ever try and leave one of Kanye West's shows early because he will trap you.
