New York Fashion Week has always been a destination to see something new and unexpected, though one of the more talked about surprises this week happened just off the runway.
On Saturday before the Alexander Wang show, rapper Cardi B took her place in one of the coveted front row seats. As if that wasn't enough, Cardi found herself seated next to none other other than Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
New York Times style reporter Matthew Schneier caught several snaps of the infamously reserved Wintour and the fashionably outspoken Cardi as they greeted each other, and the pictures of the unlikely pair caused quite a stir:
The greeting appeared very friendly, but Twitter wanted to know more...

But the lack of audio didn't stop people from imagining how the conversation went down:

Cardi: fashion nova is better
Anna: get out
Cardi: So then you turn down the greens to a simmer and let time and patience do the rest. It's really that simple.— Secure the Wig (@Djapaul90) February 11, 2018
Anna: Alright. So, just to clarify, you use ham hocks and bacon?
White Lady: Is turkey bacon a viable substitute? pic.twitter.com/SPSB1lWAXJ

Many noticed that the normally aloof Wintour seemed surprisingly friendly with Cardi:
