Teyana Taylor burst into national consciousness with her iconic dance performance in Kanye West's "Fade" video. She was forceful in the right measure, athletic as can be, and incredibly self-assured. To top it off, she starred in the video alongside her NBA Champion fiancé Iman Shumpert and their nine-month-old baby. So we couldn't imagine her getting nervous about much of anything. Turns out she got a little anxious in the leadup to her turn on the Yeezy Season 4 runway because of the presence of a fashion icon. "I was nervous as hell," Taylor tells Paper. Why? Anna Wintour was in the crowd. "I saw the posture, I saw the bangs, I saw the bob and I saw the shades, and I said, 'Anna's here,'" Taylor tells Paper. "That's when my nervousness really turned up. I love Anna. I'm obsessed with her. So, to know she was there, that she knows who I am..." We can certainly understand that. The idea of Anna Wintour showing up anywhere that we are is frankly nerve-wracking. Especially given Wintour's reaction to a past Yeezy show: "Ask someone else," Wintour told the New York Times. Still, it seems impossible that someone would not like Teyana Taylor.
