Anna Wintour thought Kanye West's latest fashion show was "wonderful." However, that doesn't mean she wanted to stay until the very end.

The Vogue editor-in-chief appeared on Tuesday's Late Night with Seth Meyers and admitted that she tried to sneak out of Yeezy Season 3 after 45 minutes, after witnessing Jay Z make an early exit. Unfortunately, it didn't work out as planned.

"I thought I could sneak out after him without anybody noticing, but I slid into the basement of Madison Square Garden," Wintour said. "I was lost there for half an hour, asking various people to let me out. I don't know if you've ever been into the basement of Madison Square Garden...I was really in tears."

To be fair, she showed up to the show early, so she'd already given West plenty of her time.

"I got there very early, as I tend to do," Wintour recalled. "They put me in this huge sort of VIP section, and I was the only person sitting there for about half an hour. We were waiting for the Kardashians to arrive en masse and Jay Z."

Wintour has long been a fan of West and Kim Kardashian, even putting the couple on the cover of Vogue back in 2014. "I think if we just remain deeply tasteful and just put deeply tasteful people on the cover, it would be a rather boring magazine," she defended her decision at the time.
