Fashion week is a breeding pool of celebrity drama. All so tightly packed into a tiny space, they're unable to turn to the comfort of their iPhone 15s. Inevitably, a fellow Fashion Week attendee will snap a photo or video showing a celeb side-eyeing their neighbor or angrily trying to sit in the front row. However, onlookers often get it wrong, and often, what they capture on video isn't what they are seeing at all. In two separate clips captured by a Paris Fashion Week guest, it appears Kim Kardashian shyly walks in late to Victoria Beckham's show. She approaches her seat and greets the man beside her but doesn't acknowledge famous fashion editor Anna Wintour. In the following clip, the same onlooker captured a video of Kim in her spot, but no sign of Anna. 

Fans went wild with hypotheses. Given the cold greeting or lack thereof, most assumed Anna requested a new seat to avoid sitting next to Kim. At least, it looked like the way the videos were cut. Despite speculation, it has been confirmed that Anna and Kim sat side-by-side for the entirety of Victoria Beckham's Paris Fashion Week show on Friday. In actuality, the videos were taken at totally different times. The first video of Kim arriving was filmed minutes before the show began. The second video, filmed with an absent Anna, was shot minutes after the show had ended.

Given Anna is in many ways the embodiment of Fashion Week as the Editor-in-Chief of Vogue, her schedule is occupied down to the last second throughout the week; Anna attends tens of shows in just a few days. Anna can always be seen rushing out the door the second a show finishes. In a separate video angle from the head of the runway, Anna can be seen running out the door as Victoria Beckham greets the crowd. 

So, no. There is no beef between the Queen of the Bob and Kimmie, even if it is made for stellar entertainment. The videos prove, time and time again, that you don't trust everything you see on social media; there's a lot more to the story than meets the eye.
