I never thought I would need to splice photos of Anna Wintour and Cardi B together, but now that I have, it feels so right.
The famed Vogue editor-in-chief sat beside the “Bodak Yellow” rapper at New York Fashion Week, and everyone on Twitter is voicing the same question: what did they talk about?
New York Times Styles reporter Matthew Schneier shared photos of their already-iconic meeting to Twitter, and the Internet’s reaction feels strangely reminiscent of the time Lupita Nyong’o sat beside Rihanna and the Internet promptly dreamed up — and succeeded in making into reality — a buddy comedy with the two actresses playing gifted scammers.
No one has suggested a Devil Wears Prada sequel featuring Cardi B yet (give it time), but the photos of the two meeting at Alexander Wang’s New York Fashion Week fall 2018 show in the old Condé Nast building belong in a pop culture museum.
Everyone wishes they had audio of this meeting. Did Anna compliment her on her fierce leather over-the-knee boots? Will Cardi be the magazine’s next cover girl? Did they exchange knowing glances when they both hated an outfit?
One thing’s for certain: Cardi B wouldn’t be caught dead in Andi Sachs’ lumpy cerulean sweater.
