The fashion worlds of Britain and the US collided in France this afternoon as Edward Enninful and Anna Wintour chatted at Paris Fashion Week.
The editors of British and US Vogue sat next to each other at the Giorgio Armani Prive show, where they appeared deep in conversation before smiling for a photo.
Later in the show, Ms Wintour was pictured making Oscar-nominated actress Michelle Yeoh and director Baz Lurhmann laugh hysterically. Meanwhile, France’s former First Lady Carla Bruni kept a low-profile as she attended the show with her sister Valeria.
The Vogue editors looked stylish as ever as they sat next to each other, with Ms Wintour wearing a patent, burgundy leather coat on top of a printed silk dress, while Mr Enninful wore a black coat with lapels over a shirt and trousers.

She was accompanied by her sister Valeria Bruna Tedeschi, who looked equally relaxed during their low-key appearance at the fashion show.

The Giorgio Armani show was a relatively low-key affair compared to yesterday’s Schiaparelli SS23 show, which received criticism for its use of animal head replicas.
The Italian Fashion House’s collection was slammed as ‘disturbing’ as models including Irina Shayk and Naomi Campbell appeared on the catwalk wearing dresses featuring lion and wolf head replicas.
Photographer Misan Harriman, who has shot a cover for Vogue, said on Twitter: ‘Dear fashion industry, this is NOT the way to start the year.
‘Nope NOPE NOPE! Be better Schiaparelli. This is disturbing.’
Schiaparelli confirmed in an Instagram post that no animals were harmed in the making of the fashion line.
However, environmental campaigner Carrie Johnson said it didn’t matter if the line was ‘real or fake’ and accused it of ‘promoting trophy hunting’.
Responding to criticism of the outfits, Shayk, 37, took to Instagram to defend the looks and stated she was proud to have appeared on the catwalk for Schiaparelli.
She wrote: ‘I support these incredible artists who worked tirelessly, with their hands, using wool, silk, and foam, to sculpt this embroidered Lion, and image of Pride, An image that @schiaparelli invokes while exploring themes of strength.
‘I am honored to have been called on as well to lend my art as a woman to this.’
