Kanye West is having the Best Fashion Week Ever. He wrangled Anna Wintour and Beyonce for the front row of his Adidas collab's debut, he revived his Grammy's tracksuit at Jeremy's Scott's presentation, and this morning he hobnobbed with New York City's First Lady Chirlane McCray at Ralph Lauren's runway show. He even smiled at her! Or, at least, he smiled in her general vicinity.

Vanity Fair reports that the pair chatted about West's S.N.L. performance and not, as we had hoped, about his recent power dinner with Taylor Swift at The Spotted Pig.
