Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour has come under fire for using the words "migrant chic" to describe a fashion show.
The British fashion maven used the phrase to describe Kanye West's recent show held at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Kanye held a double launch as he debuted his new album, The Life Of Pablo, and his adidas Yeezy season three fashion line.
Appearing as a guest on American talk show, Late Night With Seth Meyers, Anna was referencing a photo of herself sitting alone in a VIP area.
She explained she had arrived early and was "waiting for The Kardashians to arrive en masse and Jay-Z ... ".
"So eventually they did turn up and The Life Of Pablo concert started and the migrant chic fashion show started and they were both wonderful," she said.
People were quick to express their outrage on social media:
Migrant chic? And then she wonders why fashion makes people nervous. Underestimate the people? Stupidity makes people nervous, rightly so.

'Migrant chic'... Takes some kind of brain to think that's okay. #AnnaWintour

Apparently "migrant chic" is becoming a thing in the fashion world. Do we really need to spell out how insensitive that is? #fashion

The latest celebrity to feature on the fashion bible's American cover is singer Taylor Swift.

With bleached eyebrows, platinum blonde hair and restrained eye make-up, the 26-year-old is barely recognisable from her usual glamorous self.
"We very much wanted to give Taylor a new look. Make her into a rock 'n' roll chick," Wintour told America's Today show.
