DID ANNA WINTOUR BANISH KIM KARDASHIAN FROM THE Costume Institute Gala? Oh what delicious gossip wrapped in irony.
Tongues are wagging that the Dragon Lady, otherwise known as the editor of Vogue, refused the reality star an invite to the lavish fashion fundraiser held Monday night. The annual spectacle of stars attracts a bevvy of A-listers, and this year’s luminaries included Beyoncé, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tom Brady and Gisele. Also in attendance: Kim candy Kanye West, who went noticeably stag. And there’s a reason for that reports RadarOnline.
“Anna hates Kim! Why would she be invited to the event?,” a source tells the online tab. “It is all the biggest stars in the world and Kim doesn’t fit that bill at all. The Met Gala is $25,000 a ticket, but Kim can’t even buy her way in, Anna Wintour does NOT want her there!”
The reality star blogged about the festivities but stayed mum about her snub. “I love to see all of the amazing fashions each year in New York at the MET Gala! This year my favorites were Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady, Renee Zellweger, Jessica Alba, Hilary Swank, Cameron Diaz, Lala Anthony and my ultimate favorite… Karolina Kurkova! Hands down the most gorgeous look of the night!,” she wrote.
Here’s the irony: The Gala could have used the heat generated by Kim’s scandalous shine. I looked at dozens of pictures of the famous partygoers and all I could muster was meh. Even the usually adorable Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Alba looked tired and unoriginal. In most instances the clothes wore the celebrity and not the other way around. It was enough to make me imagine the fictional Miranda Priestly (as played by Meryl Streep) pursing her lips in a sneer. Where were the fresh styles, the flattering gowns? And why did everybody look tired and played?
The scandalous Kim Kardashian is just what this year’s gala needed.
