Frightening.

Two months after the "Life of Pablo" fashion show/concert extravaganza at Madison Square Garden, reigning queen of the fashion realm Anna Wintour's verdict is in. While making an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Tuesday evening, the Vogue Editor-In-Chief (clad in a "Hillary '16" tee and signature tweed skirt suit) referred to Kanye West's Yeezy Season 3 collection both "migrant-chic" and "wonderful." 

Whereas her contemporaries including Cathy Horyn and Vanessa Friedman deemed the clothing themselves as lackluster and secondary to the show itself, it appears that Wintour — who officially ushered in the era of the high-fashion Kardashians when she gave the April 2014 Vogue cover to Kimye — is of a different mindset. 

But while she enjoyed her view from the VIP section of the Yeezy spectacular, her experience leaving the show was not so wonderful. Wintour recounted her perilous journey getting lost in the basement (!) of Madison Square Garden as she attempted to quietly exit the show. 

"I was lost there for half an hour," she recalls of the terrifying incident. "I was really in tears."

The stuff of nightmares.
