If you, like us, wondered how Nicki Minaj so fortuitously managed to get seated next to Anna Wintour at nearly every fashion week show she attended in New York, well, wonder no more. Turns out that it was all Wintour's idea. The NY Daily News explains: "The singer, who performed last weekend at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas, explained that Wintour personally invited her to the Herrera show and later sent Minaj an inscribed photo of the two watching the fashion promenade. 'We match!' wrote Wintour, apparently referring to the fact they'd both worn patterned attire." [NYDN]
