The British and American fashion worlds collided in France this afternoon as Edward Enninful and Anna Wintour chatted at Paris Fashion Week.
The editors of British and American 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, former first lady of France Carla Bruni kept a low profile as she attended the show with her sister Valeria.
The Vogue editors still looked stylish as they sat next to each other, Ms Wintour wearing a burgundy patent leather coat over a printed silk dress, while Mr Enninful wore a black coat with lapels over a shirt and trousers.

The British Vogue editor enjoyed the Armani show days after being in the audience for Beyoncé’s exclusive, but controversial, concert for the opening of the Atlantis The Royal hotel in Dubai.
After the show, Ms Wintour was pictured chatting with Michelle Yeoh, who was nominated for the Best Actress Oscar earlier today.
The actress was nominated for her role in Everything, Everywhere, All of a Sudden.
As the American Vogue editor joined her for a chat, she was pictured pointing at director Baz Lurhmann and appeared to say something which made Yeoh laugh so much she was pictured dabbing the eyes.

Former first lady of France Carla Bruni, 55, was also present at the star-studded Armani show.
We saw her in a very chic all-black jumpsuit with a fishnet bust, which she associated for the occasion with a black velvet jacket.
She was accompanied by her sister Valeria Bruna Tedeschi, who looked equally relaxed during their low-key appearance at the fashion show.
Valeria, a 58-year-old Italian-French actress, opted for a silky smooth gray number for her outing, unlike her younger sister’s darker outfit.
The Giorgio Armani show was a relatively low-key affair compared to yesterday’s Schiaparelli SS23 show, which was criticized for its use of replica animal heads.

The Italian fashion house’s collection has been called “disturbing” as models like Irina Shayk and Naomi Campbell appeared on the catwalk wearing dresses with replica lion and wolf heads.
Photographer Misan Harriman, who has done a cover for Vogue, said on Twitter: “Dear fashion industry, this is NOT the way to start the year.
‘No no no ! Be better Schiaparelli. It is troubling.
Schiaparelli confirmed in an Instagram post that no animals were harmed while creating the fashion line.
However, environmental activist Carrie Johnson said it didn’t matter whether the line was “true or false” and accused it of “promoting trophy hunting”.
Responding to criticism of the outfits, Shayk, 37, took to Instagram to defend the looks and said she was proud to appear on the catwalk for Schiaparelli.
She wrote: “I support these incredible artists who have worked tirelessly, with their hands, using wool, silk and moss, to sculpt this Embroidered Lion, and the image of Pride, an image that @schiaparelli invokes while exploring themes of strength.
“I am honored to have been called upon to lend my art as a woman to this as well.”
