A Nor'easter is no match for New York Fashion Week. The shows must go on -- and they did! Industry insiders and style stars braved the elements in the name of fashion. In fact, we'd like to consider this the perfect storm since it managed to bring Anna Wintour and Lupita Nyong'o together.
That's right, Vogue's matriarch and the "12 Years A Slave" actress were spotted front row and side-by-side at the Calvin Klein Fall/Winter 2014 show on Thursday. (We see you, too, Naomi Watts!) Luipta, aka fashion's new "It" girl, looked perfectly polished in a pale pink frock, thick framed glasses and a bold red lip, while Anna sported her signature trifecta: fur, sunglasses and a blank stare.
Although this marked Lupita's first time attending a Fashion Week show, it wasn't the first time the ladies rubbed stilettos. This past November, the two shared a laugh at a New York City event and the Kenyan beauty even called Anna "sweet" and "gracious." Sounds like the makings of a fabulous friendship, which begs the question -- and strengthens our hopes -- that a Vogue cover is in the near future for Lupita.
We definitely think Vogue should snag her next. Fingers crossed their recent encounter is one step closer!
Lupita could definitely hold her own amongst these street style stars:
