Anna Wintour is notoriously not an easy lady to please. If you close your eyes and imagine the Vogue editrix—go on, close your eyes and imagine her—you pictured a frown wearing a short blonde bob and big sunglasses, didn't you? (Also, see above.)

But while the devil may wear Prada, she also occasionally wears a smile too. So we decided to keep track of everything at New York Fashion Week that made Anna Wintour smile. Here is the comprehensive list:

Anna Wintour looooooves basketball. Here she is talking about three pointers and defense and the '95-'96 Chicago Bulls with NBA player Russell Westbrook. Go Oklahoma City Thunder!

Telling Vogue inside jokes that she would tell you, but you just wouldn't understand:

Here, Hamish Bowles, Vogue's internation editor at large, is wearing paisley and being hilarious, as evident by Vogue editor Virginia Smith's "Can you believe this guy?!" expression.
