Anna Wintour explained her “close relationship” with Kanye West on Wednesday’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” The Vogue editor-in-chief also gushed, “I adore Kanye,” and said she thinks he’s “brilliant.” See the video below.

“I think one of the reasons we bond a lot is that we tend to see each other when I’m traveling or when I’m exhausted from the fashion shows,” Wintour told Meyers. “And the wonderful thing about Kanye is that he likes to talk, and basically he likes to talk about everything, sort of like Karl Lagerfeld, he’s brilliant and I like to listen, so we have a very close relationship!”

After discussing West, Meyers quizzed Wintour about the outfits worn at Met Gala and specifically asked her opinion of Justin Bieber’s outfit, which he showed on-camera. “We have Bieber. I see here he shaved off his mustache,” cracked Meyers. “This was actually one of my favorites,” Wintour said of Bieber’s ensemble. “These are all Chinese dragons and apparently that’s age bouillon thread.” She also commented on George Clooney’s look, noting, “He has Amal on his arm and he’s George Clooney. He doesn’t have to wear anything.”
