You never know what strange sights you're in for at a Kanye West concert -- but the strangest thing at last night's Yeezus tour stop in Brooklyn were two very iconic hairdos.
Eagle-eyes spotted none other than Anna Wintour's bob and Grace Coddington's frizzy red mane sitting in the audience at Barclays Center as West put on a show, the first of four Yeezus tour dates he's playing in New York. From the looks of it, the two Vogue editors were just seats away from Lindsay Lohan, Kris Jenner, Jonathan Cheban and the one and only Kim Kardashian.
We can't be sure what Anna made of the classic Kanye spectacle, which included a throne of human dancers, a man dressed as Jesus and an anti-fashion rant punctuated with the comment, "Fuck what they tell you is luxury" (not to mention all that Confederate flag merchandise being sold before the show). But we do know Vogue is growing increasingly chummy with the West/Kardashian family by the day, from the Met Gala bonding to Andre Leon Talley lunching with Kim at Paris Fashion Week.
Now, with Anna and Grace spotted at a Yeezus show of all things, we're beginning to believe a true friendship is blooming. After all, Kanye already stated his mission clearly: "There's no way Kim Kardashian shouldn't be on the cover of Vogue." At this rate, that doesn't sound like such a wildly unrealistic goal...
Anna loves her celebrity friends:
The "Gossip Girl" starlet is a favorite of the fashion set, including Karl Lagerfeld and Anna Wintour. So it was no surprise when Lively sat beside Anna at the Christian Dior Couture Fall 2010 show in Paris show in July 2010 -- she had already landed <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/05/18/blake-lively-in-a-bikini_n_580217.html" target="_hplink">a <em>Vogue</em> cover the month before</a> <em>and</em> <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/01/13/blake-livelys-emvogueem-m_n_157446.html" target="_hplink">in 2009</a>. <strong>COVER?</strong> Yes -- two.

The German actress is a fashion favorite, popping up at couture shows and fashion parties worldwide. She joined Anna at the Chanel Cruise show back in May 2008, but has so far still only appeared in Vogue's party snaps and Best Dressed lists. <strong>COVER?</strong> No. (Getty photo)
The former White House social secretary was known for her exceptionally fashion-forward style and joined Anna in the front row of <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/02/17/desiree-rogers-white-hous_n_167492.html" target="_hplink">Carolina Herrara's Fall 2009 show</a> and <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/06/08/desiree-rogers-anna-winto_n_604131.html" target="_hplink">for Oscar de la Renta resort in 2010</a>. By September 2011, she found herself <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/07/21/desiree-rogers-vogue_n_905777.html" target="_hplink">posing in Prabal for <em>Vogue</em></a>... but merely for a small shoot. <strong>COVER?</strong> No. (Getty photo)
The CBS host is a buddy of Anna's, interviewing her for <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/05/18/anna-wintour-addresses-bi_n_204808.html" target="_hplink">her "60 Minutes" interview in 2009</a>. He also found himself in the front row of Ralph Lauren's Fall 2009 show... but not actually in the pages of <em>Vogue</em>. <strong>COVER?</strong> No. (Getty photo)
Sarah Jessica Parker
SJP earned her style credentials playing fashionista Carrie Bradshaw but also by being a real-life fashion enthusiast. She sat with Anna at the Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2011 show in September 2010... <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/07/12/sarah-jessica-parker-vogue-august-age-issue_n_896236.html" target="_hplink">one month after appearing on <em>Vogue</em>'s cover</a>. For at least her third time. <strong>COVER?</strong> Yes -- three. (WireImage photo)
A fashion enthusiast in addition to an NBA player, Amar'e joined Anna at the Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2011 show. He did turn up <a href="http://www.vogue.com/magazine/article/swish-amare-stoudemire-hamish-bowles/#1" target="_hplink">on Vogue.com playing basketball with Hamish Bowles</a>, but he hasn't reached the heights of <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/03/25/lebron-james-vogue-cover-_n_93252.html" target="_hplink">LeBron James</a> when it comes to fashion covers. <strong>COVER?</strong> No. (Getty photo)
T-Swift put on her best frilly dress and hit the Rodarte Spring 2012 show with Anna just last September. Lo and behold, we were graced with <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/17/taylor-swift-vogue-february-2012_n_1210528.html" target="_hplink">Swift's first <em>Vogue</em> cover</a> just this month (wearing Rodarte, no less). <strong>COVER?</strong> Yes. (Getty photo)
At the same Rodarte show, Anna positioned Rooney Mara by her side. The "Dragon Tattoo" star was beginning to gain fashion cred already, but Wintour's blessing solidified it... and <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/10/17/rooney-maras-vogue-november-2011_n_1015805.html" target="_hplink">landed her Vogue's November 2011 cover</a>. <strong>COVER?</strong> Yes. (Getty photo)
Anna loves tennis -- and tennis stars. Serena Williams has joined Wintour on the front row several times, including at the Michael Kors Spring 2011 show in 2010. She has appeared in the magazine multiple times but has never nabbed <em>Vogue</em>'s biggest prize. <strong>COVER?</strong> No. (WireImage photo)
The hip-hop star surprised everyone by <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/09/29/anna-wintour-invited-nick_n_987118.html" target="_hplink">showing up with Anna to the Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta Spring 2012 shows</a>. But that was September... and we've seen no <em>Vogue</em> covers yet. <strong>COVER?</strong> No. (Getty photo)
The football (or soccer, if you will) star attended his wife Victoria's Fall 2012 fashion show on Sunday, sitting next to Anna and snapping pictures of the runway looks. He's never covered the magazine, but it's not too crazy an idea: out of the three men who have landed <em>Vogue</em> covers (yup, that's three <em>ever</em>), one was <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/03/25/lebron-james-vogue-cover-_n_93252.html" target="_hplink">LeBron James</a>. So we know Anna's got a thing for athletes. <strong>COVER?</strong> Not yet... (AFP photo)
Gillibrand, a junior U.S. senator from New York, was an unexpected front row pal of Anna's this Fall 2012 fashion week. She joined Wintour at the Carolina Herrera show on Monday, perhaps indicating a future in <em>Vogue</em>'s pages (the magazine does like to feature powerful women in politics). But Gillibrand as a covergirl? We just don't see it. <strong>COVER?</strong> Not yet... (WireImage photo)
The "The Help" star sat beside Anna at Tuesday's Vera Wang Fall 2012 show. She hasn't covered <em>Vogue</em> before, but her star is certainly rising this year with all her "Help" accolades. <strong>COVER?</strong> Not yet... (Getty photo)
The tennis star sat on Anna's other side at Tuesday's Vera Wang Fall 2012 runway. Tennis stars often appear on <em>Vogue</em>'s pages and Maria has been <a href="http://www.vogue.com/vogue-daily/article/game-on-us-open-contender-maria-sharapova-celebrates-her-newest-designs-for-cole-haan/" target="_hplink">featured multiple times</a>. But as for the cover... <strong>COVER?</strong> Not yet... (WireImage photo)
