Anna Wintour Personally Invited Nicki Minaj to Fashion Week




    Many were amused to see Nicki Minaj sitting alongside Vogue editor Anna Wintour, decked out in a neon rainbow of pom-poms and a platinum wig, at the Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta shows at New York Fashion Week. But as it happens, this was no odd-couple coincidence.

    According to the Daily News, Minaj told Z100 that Wintour personally invited her to the shows. After the shows, the editor even apparently sent her a photograph of the two of them with the inscription, "We match!" -- a reference to their coordinating pops of orange.

    Despite the reputation of coldness people have ascribed to Wintour, one thing is clear -- she's certainly not rigid when it comes to fashion risks by pop stars, having been vocal in her virtual adoration of Minaj's counterpart in crazy get-ups, Lady Gaga. We're betting a Vogue appearance can't be far off.
