Yesterday, a lot of you seemed to enjoy the story about Anna Wintour “banning” Kim Kardashian from the Met Gala. Allegedly, Wintour loathes everything Kardashian, and Wintour made sure that Kanye West (who went to the Met Gala) did not bring Kim. I thought it was kind of a meaningless “statement” to make on Wintour’s part – if she really feels that way – considering that she allowed the likes of Camilla Belle, Kate Bosworth and Ashley Greene to walk the red carpet too. Are we supposed to think that those girls are somehow not as “bad” as Kim Kardashian because they’re “actresses”? Because, personally, I think all of those women are at the same level of C-list importance. Anyway, E! News tried to do some damage control on the story, claiming that Kim was NEVER supposed to attend the Met Gala anyway:
While the best and brightest of the sartorial set converged in New York Monday night for the Met Gala—aka the Oscars of fashion—there was one flashbulb-attracting name that was absent from the festivities, almost conspicuously so. It didn’t take long for rumors to spread that the reason for Kim Kardashian’s absence from the event (her arm candy Kanye West did attend, solo) was that she’d somehow fallen foul of Vogue editrix Anna Wintour’s bad side and was banned from attending.
But was Kim really disinvited from the ball? Hold on to that haute couture, because this rumor is… So false!
No such snubbing took place, and in fact, the real reason for Kim’s absence is a simple one: She’s a professional. As it happens, Kim’s jam-packed schedule—and not some imagined feud with the most powerful woman in publishing—prevented her from attending, as a source close to the Kardashian family told E! News she was booked on the other side of the country, in Los Angeles, for an all-day photoshoot for a European fashion magazine.
Kim was never disallowed from the attending the gala event, nor was she forewarned of any potential ice between her and Wintour should she have attended…though that was never the plan and the source told E! News, “She couldn’t have gone even if she wanted to. The shoot was scheduled for months in advance.”
In any case, you can’t keep a good woman down, even with a silly rumor, and Kim is continuing her sartorial week apace. Today she and her sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Khloé Kardashian Odom are shooting a new fashion campaign for their Sears line.

So, do you buy this? I think Kim was in LA, working. But do I buy that “working in LA” was always her plan? What self-respecting C-list reality star and self-styled “Fashion Girl” schedules something in LA on the day of the Met Gala? Deep thoughts.
More Kim K. news – she wrote a blog post about President Obama’s advocacy of gay marriage yesterday. You can read it here. And Us Weekly reports that a different kind of marriage is on Kim’s mind – apparently, Kim and Kanye are still totally talking about getting married.
Kanye West is prepping some new material: his vows. One month after the Grammy winner professed his love for gal pal Kim Kardashian, 31, on his single “Way Too Cold” (formerly “Theraflu”), he’s singing about her again, a source tells Us Weekly.
On an upcoming track by hip-hop artist Pusha T, West, 34, raps, “I saw you in the club in a white dress/Now I want to put you in a white dress.”
The lyrics are hardly hot air, says a second source: “Kim and Kanye are 100 percent having conversations about marriage.”
Kardashian and the rapper first stepped out as a couple in NYC in March, but an insider close to the duo assures Us their romance was years in the making.
West pursued Kardashian “for a long time” the source explained. Echoed another source, “They’ve been friends for years. Kim is ready to give it a try now.”

If Kanye does propose to Kim, I think it will be his most self-destructive act so far. That man is very self-destructive, self-defeating and for the most part, Kanye is Kanye’s worst enemy. I want to think Kanye would step away from the (Kardashian) abyss when it came down to it, but God knows.
