This ^^ is the now-infamous Anna Wintour BURN on Kim Kardashian. Anna Wintour dislikes Kim Kardashian and everything Kardashian stands for. Wintour has snubbed Kim time and time again. But Wintour LOVES Kanye West and when Kanye asked Anna’s permission to bring Kim along as his Met Gala date, Anna allowed it to happen begrudgingly. But Anna will not allow Kim Kardashian to even appear on Vogue.com, so Kim was thoughtfully cropped out of the photo on Vogue’s Met Gala slideshow. Which is still amazing to me, that Wintour would carry the grudge that far. According to Radar, however, Wintour is still trying to hold the Met Gala invite list to some kind of high standard. And that involves NO Kardashian-Jenners (except for Kim) and NO Real Housewives:
“One Kardashian is enough!”
That was the blunt edict Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour delivered after learning Kim Kardashian‘s momager, Kris Jenner, enquired about attending last week’s A-List Met Costume Institute Gala, RadarOnline.com has learned.
“Anna approves every star who enters and although she finally relented on Kim, she drew the line at Kris, who was desperate to attend,” a source said. “Anna wants a parade of stars at the gala, not a parade of reality stars!”
This is not the first time Wintour, 63, has nixed a member of the Kardashian clan attending the event: as RadarOnline.com previously revealed, she had banned the 32-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star from the 2012 event.
But tensions between the pair have soothed, thanks to Kardashian’s relationship with rapper West, who is a favorite of the magazine queen. Wintour even invited the expectant couple over for dinner at her New York City home the night before the Gala and hand-picked Kardashian’s floral Givenchy dress that was widely criticized, prompting a side-by-side photo comparison of Kardashian and Robin Williams, the source said.
The insider also revealed the famed editrix rebuffed an approach by the The Real Housewives of New York stars Ramona Singer, Carole Radziwill, LuAnn de Lesseps, Heather Thomson, Sonja Morgan and Aviva Drescher, who wanted to buy a table at fashion’s biggest night.
“Anna would never, ever allow a group of Real Housewives to rub shoulders with fashion’s elite,” the source said.
I can see banning almost all of those Real Housewives… except for Carole Radziwill…? She’s the widow of John Kennedy Jr.’s first cousin! I thought Conde Nast was all about the Kennedy legacy in any and every form? But yeah, the rest of the RHONYs can suck it for all Wintour cares. As for Kris Jenner… did Kris Jenner realistically think she had a shot at coming to the Met Gala? The only way any of those Kardashian-Jenner girls will get to go the Met Gala is if they are the plus-one of someone Anna actually likes. Like, if Grace Coddington invited Kylie Jenner, then sure. That might happen. But why would Grace do that?
