Best Buddies: Nicki Minaj and Anna Wintour
Odd celebrity friendships generally don’t phase us – 50 Cent and Bette Midler, Mel Gibson and Britney, phah, who cares? – but when we heard that Anna Wintour was besties with Nicki Minaj, well that one truly shocked us.
Apparently the unlikely pair hit it off after sitting next to each other while front row at Caroline Herrera and Oscar de la Renta’s catwalk shows earlier this month. And if that didn’t surprise you perhaps the fact that their placing next to each other was actually down to an invite from the Vogue head to the eccentric rapper.
The colourful Moment 4 Life hitmaker made such a big impression on notoriously stonefaced Anna that the magazine boss sent Nicki a picture of the new friends, both wearing patterned clothes, with the message “We match!” written on the photo. Weird or what?
