While a professional tennis player might not be the first person that comes to mind when you think about the Met Gala guest list, Wintour and Roger Federer are actually close friends. Wintour even penned an essay for his retirement. 

 “He was interested in fashion and eager to talk about it. There was nothing I wanted to talk about less with Roger Federer than fashion,” Wintour wrote. 

“I wanted to talk tennis. We never stopped conversing at cross-purposes this way, him asking me about designers and me brushing off the questions to ask about what he did on the court. But at some point we realized that—even if we never did get the information we wanted—we liked each other enormously.”
