Kim Kardashian did not go to the Met Gala because Anna Wintour “hates her”

In our (somewhat excessive?) Met Gala coverage, I was surprised that no one asked the most important question of all: “Where IS Kim Kardashian’s kat-face? I demand to know!” Well, now you do. According to Radar’s sources, there are few people in this world that make Anna Wintour’s skin crawl, but Ol’ Kat-face is one of them. Anna Wintour, editor in chief of Vogue and permanent co-chair of the Met Gala, simply decreed it: “There will no Kardashian on this red carpet!” I imagine a “10 Commandents”-like ceremony, where Anna slowly and painstakingly chiseled out her red carpet rules in polished marble. 1. No Kardashians. 2. Any other kind of Bosworth-like famewhore is allowed as long as they kiss the ass of The Wintour.

The most glamorous stars in Hollywood sizzled at the Met Gala in New York City Monday night but there was one starlet who was noticeably absent – Kim Kardashian!

Kim’s new boyfriend, superstar Kanye West, was at Anna Wintour’s fabled Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala, but Kim was not by his side, and that’s down to an edict straight from the famed Vogue editor for years, a source exclusively told

“Anna hates Kim,” a source says. “Why would she be invited to the event? It is all the biggest stars in the world and Kim doesn’t fit that bill at all.”

This year, big screen bombshell Gwyneth Paltrow, sexy new mom Beyoncé, and supermodel Gisele Bunchen and her QB hubby Tom Brady attended the Elsa Shiaparelli and Miuccia Prada exhibit dressed in the hottest couture from the world’s most important fashion designers, but Kim wasn’t among them.

“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 source says.

Kim and her very pregnant sister Kourtney Kardashian were snapped on Monday running errands in Los Angeles, and the source says she’ll likely try and justify her absence.

“Kim and her camp will deny that she wasn’t invited by saying that she had business in L.A., but that is a lie,” the source says. “She would of done anything to be there with all the A-listers.”

Dating Kanye can get Kim lots of bling, but it can’t get her into the most coveted party of the year!

And, don’t expect to see Kardashian gazing out from the cover of the esteemed fashion mag anytime soon either!

“Anna Wintour would allow Kim Kardashian on the cover of Vogue over her dead body,” the source says. “As long as Anna in charge you will NOT see Kim on Vogue.”

[From Radar]

Well… I mean, Anna allowing Kim to come to the Met Gala doesn’t automatically mean Kim would get a Vogue cover. I would be pissed off if Kim was on Vogue too, but I don’t think I would have been angry if Kim was at the Met Gala. It’s a fun event full of try-hard famewhores – Kim would have been in her element, especially if she came on Kanye’s arm. Incidentally, there was a rumor that Lindsay Lohan was trying to score an invite to the Met Gala – and I for one am glad that Wintour managed to shut that down. At this point in time, Kim Kardashian > Lindsay Lohan.

Incidentally, Kim did a post on her Celebuzz blog about her favorite styles from the Met Gala – you can see it here.

    Team Anna….it takes a bitch to put a famewhore in her place.

    • marie says:

      ha ha agreed, makes me like Anna a little more..

      • aquarius64 says:

        X2. Grande dames (bitchy or not) like Wintour see the Kar-trashians for what they are. They are comfortable and confident in their power to be able to invite who they want to their events. Dollar bet Kim thought she would get an invite b/c she went to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. She got a wake up call: not everyone is willing to kiss her @ $$.

    • Eleonor says:

      Ahaha you’re soo right!

    • Tapioca says:

      And have you seen the old pics of Nuclear Winter making absolutely no attempt to hide her disdain for Nicki Minaj when they were seated together at some fashion show?

      HBIC has standards! And a razor-sharp bob, white furry thing & lobster(?) print dress. Perfection.

    • Loulou says:

      Well put. KK is irrelevant and insignificant to the Vogue crowd. She’s an aspirational only to trashy people and they don’t tread in Condé Nast territory.

    • Lizzie K says:

      Wow! Standards! I didn’t think they existed anymore! Just … wow!

    • Red Granny says:

      Not a fan of Anna. But hey what ever it takes to keep the Kardashinans away 😉

    • Rice says:

      I love you Brin! You’re right on point! Now, let’s see if there are other bitches out there!

    • lolaluvsu2 says:

      Can I get that on a tshirt?

    • darkladi says:

      WORD…Where I can I get the T-shirt

  2. Brittany says:

    Anna seems like a bitch, but no one else ever seems to say no to the Katface, so… Yay!

  3. LadyJane says:

    I am glad she didn’t get invited. She isn’t a celebrity – just a reality tv ‘star’. Kelly Osbourne wasn’t there either, nor paris hilton. See the trend? But now I guess, Kat-face gets her very own post as to why she wasn’t invited. (Sigh.)

    These vile people just won’t ever go away. Will they?

  4. Sisi says:

    if KK had gone, would she have wanted to wear Beyoncé’s gown? (not that she would have gotten first choice by Givenchy)

    • Dhavy says:

      Took the words out of my mouth LOL I was going to say she didn’t go because Beyonce took her dress!

  5. Nicola says:

    What’s awesome is that Anna Wintour previously allowed Amber Rose to attend. Urban stripper trumps Beverly Hills p*rn star. Bless you Anna!

    • MJ says:

      Even with her past, Amber Rose has more class in her right nipple than Kim K has in her entire ass… er, body… you know what I mean.

  6. Zelda says:

    I’m glad she was banned. Kim K. desperately needs to be taken down a notch. Or all the notches.

    I’d like to see Wintour’s dress without the cape.

  7. Jackie says:

    this is one time i will applaud the bitch face wintour.

  8. Brittany says:

    As a side note, just looking at that first pic and I immediately think:
    Forehead: Botox
    Nose: nose job
    Lips: injections
    Cheeks: chicken cutlets

    Can’t wait to see what she looks like in 20 years hahaha

  9. lil ole me says:

    I now officially love Anna. Kim don’t need to mess with these hard nosed broads, she’ll get put in her porn star place. Her boyfriend attended sans Kim?

  10. Bad Gal Addiction says:

    Has cat face ever worn some kind of a couture gown? I can’t remember, she has the ability to make everything look cheap and tacky. She always seems to wear attire that looks like it belongs on the sale rack of a prom dress store.

  11. The Orginal Orginal says:

    Finally, someone high up in the media world says no to a Kardashian. Thank you Anna Wintour. Poor Moma Jenner.

    • Sassy says:

      Anna Wintour wouldn’t have a cup of copy with Kris Jenner or her daughters, nor would I or any other sensible woman.

  12. Mary says:

    Wow, this article just made my day. As an aside, I did click on the celebuzz and read through some of the comments. Why is it when anybody dares say anything bad against people like Kim K or Chris Brown, the automatic response is about haters, blah blah blah. Who are the people that like Kim K and why? I always assumed that it was silly teenagers that didn’t know any better, but am I wrong?

    • Zelda says:

      People whose best defense is “You’re just a hater.”

      ‘Nuff said.

      • polk8dot says:

        And apparently, thousands of young, dumb, Japanese girls. Lord knows why?
        It is a sad commentary on our society that this kind of trashy waste of air makes her living on stupidity of our youth. But what is the deal with her, and actually all 3 KKs, popularity in Japan? What is their appeal?
        Seriously, we export so many other valuable lifestyle icons etc, and they had to zero in on this POS??

    • YokoDMV says:

      I’m 24 and…i don’t hate Kim, I wouldn’t say i LOVE her or anything but i think she is villainized unnecessarily at times. I can’t support women (because it is usually women) tearing down another woman for her sexual choices. Also, whatever people’s personal opinions are on reality TV, Kim is probably THE MOST successful reality TV star in history, for what that’s worth. It really is sad to see people talk about this girl on the internet, she’s “fake” “worthless” “scum” “soul-less” etc. I think every body has the right to like or dislike whatever they please but sometimes how we see others isn’t a reflection on them but a reflection on us. I can’t see how Kim K. has ruined the world or is destroying lives, there are other shows to watch if you don’t like hers, every one she has dated, dated her by choice, and if she wants to live out a public persona and make money off of it, that is her decision.

      • Katy says:

        Whatever Yoko…I personally get me opinion about her from her own behavior! She must spend countless hours looking in the mirror, putting on make up, getting fillers and botox, and taking provacative pictures of herself to post on twitter. To me that just says a lot about her as a person!!

      • YokoDMV says:

        what does that say about her as a person? she cares about her appearance more than you think she should?….ok.

      • Trillion says:

        She annoys because she offers nothing of substance. She doesn’t even give clever soundbites or have unique style, which would be at least something. Yet she is rewarded with fame and wealth. For nothing. It’s a depressing commentary on society. We can only offset this by matching every ridiculous act with bitchy commentary. So, I guess she is actually worth that.

  13. DailyNightly says:

    a source says. “Why would she be invited to the event? It is all the biggest stars in the world and Kim doesn’t fit that bill at all.”

    And Bosworth was there, why???

  14. lamamu says:

    Does Anna Wintour even know who Kim Kardashian is? I would be disappointed if Kim K was even a blip on A Win’s radar.

    • Cel says:

      Anna would know who Kim is because as an Editor she would get copies of all the monthly magazines – she may only glance through them, or have a staff member give her a brief of the contents, but she would know.

      Interesting that Kanye decided to go anyway. I am sure he could get a plus-one if he wanted, clearly the guest list is screened for wanted attendees!

    • shannon says:

      I know! “Biggest stars” my ass. Ashle Greene was there too, amongst other nobodies

  15. dorothy says:

    Yea Anna! Finally someone that has standards.

  16. Jenna says:

    I also found this bit of info hilarious. Go Anna! 😛

  17. cupidityrox says:

    They don’t call her Anna “Winter” for nothing. She’d cut a butch if she needs to. Kim Kardashian has some nerve if she thinks she deserves to be there. All the other stars @ the Met didn’t get there by being urinals.

  18. Gia says:

    Anna looks amazing. Love her. Kim needs this annual reminder that she is a porn star and always will be.

    • Zelda says:


      I would hang out with a porn star and have a beer, or whatever. I can honestly say I would never hang out with Kim K, ever, unless I got paid for it. Paid well.

    • Dana says:

      I think Anna has the best highlights on earth. Whenever I see a photo of her I stare at her hair colour.

  19. Agnes says:

    HAHAHAHAHA! for the first time ever, i am starting to love anna’s c*nty ways. haha

  20. Riana says:

    $25, 000 a ticket? There’s a fine line between esteemed event and rich losers gathering about to preen and pick tics out of eachother’s dresses.

    I’m over hating Kim, somewhat, she’s an annoying famewhore but I’ve come to realize without people giving her attention shed have evaporated long ago. Can’t hate what you feed.

    Lcall me when Winter starts hating and icing out someone like Beyonce. THAT will be worth the coverage.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      Who are her fans? That is what fascinates me. She’s not popular locally. She is not popular in NY. Normally, I would pull the coast snob thing and blame the Midwest but I can’t see that either… the Midwest is not into people who are peed on and have a plethora of sex tapes and dirty pictures.

  21. Becky says:

    I wonder how this went down. Did Kim know she was never getting in or did she get hopeful that she’d be allowed w Kane?
    Did she get super anxious thinking she had a chance?
    Did mom agent kris tell her she wasnt getting in and she understood because she’s at a good business woman?
    Did Kanye have to straight TELL HER? Cuz that would be embarrassing.
    did the couple even acknowledge the situation or was kimmy too proud ()

    • Becky says:

      I think they both too business-oriented to get awkward or emotional about it?
      Is Kim feeling super insecure that kanyes friends and peers show such disdain for her?
      Did kimmy try to save face and tell her bf she couldn’t go anyways?
      Ugh this should be on KU with those damn Kardashians

  22. stephanie says:

    I think anna wintour is impressive. I like her outfit here. yay to nixing the kardashian klan on the red carpet!

  23. Lady_Luck says:

    Anna Wintout = true face of the devil wears prada 😀

  24. Alexis says:

    I’m sure Anna doesn’t “hate” Kim. She just doesn’t want people like her at her party because it would diminish Anna’s reputation. So strong an emotion as hate gives Kim more credit than she’s worth in Anna’s eyes.

    On the internet, if you’re not drooling over someone, it seems, you’re a “hater.”

    • Dawn says:

      Exactly this.

    • Sisi says:

      I think Anna doesn’t want to waste energy thinking about a person like Kim. That would include hating her. She would throw shade like that imo

    • ZenB!tch says:

      totally – hate and hater are different things.

      The word hate has lost it’s meaning. When I *really* mean “hate” I say “loathe” or “abhor” now.

      I think Anna’s true feeling for KK is like a piece of doggy poo on her Choo. Repulsive and unwanted but no emotional investment.

  25. Melissa says:

    Would HAVE, not “would of”. Ugh.

  26. Harleyhoney says:

    Kim and the entire kartrashian mutt Klan.Are way out of their league on this one….
    !!!!!! TEAM ANNA !!!!!!!!

  27. Stubbylove says:

    Rock on Anna – love it.

  28. Deann Baldwin says:

    I wish Anna would have put Kris Humphries on Vogue..then she would be my dream bitch.

  29. Dee Cee says:

    Anna deserves an exceptional round of applause..

  30. bluhare says:

    “somewhat excessive?” gala coverage?

    YES!!! Totally excessive. One “ten best/worst” post would have been plenty for me. That goes for the Oscars, Emmy’s Whatevers.

    But this one is OK. It’s Nuclear Wintour dissing someone.

  31. ZenB!tch says:

    The Lohan > KK – sorry but LL is a cracky has-been. KK is a tacky porn star oddly gone legit.

    A has-been was someone once. KK skipped that part and is just a high priced whore. LL had to hit drug addict rock bottom to do that.

    KK < everyone


  32. bobjustbob says:

    Haha, love it, way to go Anna W!!!

    Everytime KK thinks she has reached the A-list (Washington dinner), she gets knocked back donw (LOVE IT!) and told in a roundabout way that she will always be known as the gal with the pee porn video.

    It’s like a celeb version of Snakes ‘n Ladder…a step up and then something like this and KK goes wayyyy way back down to her true place, at the bottom of the celeb ladder! LOVE IT!!

  33. claire says:

    When these reality fame-hos think they belong at the Oscar parties, or when these reality fame-hos who “design” their own perfume or clothing lines think they belong at the Fashion Shows or the Met Ball….it just cracks me up. UM…no, sorry to burst your arrogant bubble, but you’re not EVEN on the same level.

    I applaud anyone who puts the Kartrashians and the Lohans in their place.

    And, I just have to say, The September Issue is a fantastic documentary about Vogue, Anna, Grace Coddington. If you’ve not seen it, watch it! It’s on Netflix.

  34. fabgrrl says:

    What kind of a sh*tty boyfriend would go to a party his girlfriend was delibrately banned from? Oh, wait, it’s Kanye West.

    • stinky says:

      i know, right?? this story sounds sketch to me! HE’S such a little bitch, he wouldnt go if his girl was really gettin’ a diss. i’m not buying this one. i really do think KK wasnt available, and the whole story is just another ‘plant’ to keep force-feeding her name to the gossip-world. i dont even hate on her myself. i used to really find her so beautiful back in her Hilton days! She was so sexy….. and now ….. SO VAPID is all. 🙁

      • SpunkyPR says:

        I actually believe that KK was left off the invite list intentionally. Busy or not, this is an opportunity to famewhore with the elite and more importantly get your face in all the media, she wouldn’t have missed it.

      • polk8dot says:

        @ SpunkyPR says:
        ‘Busy or not, this is an opportunity to famewhore with the elite and more importantly get your face in all the media, she wouldn’t have missed it.’

        Exactly the same reason that Kanye did not cancel, but went solo.

  35. NYC_girl says:

    It’s a fundraiser for the Museum’s Costume Institute. An exhibit usually coincides with the gala and lasts a few months – last year was Alexander McQueen’s. It seems to be getting more fame-whorey as the years go on, but if they’re the ones who bring the $$$, I’m sure Anna can deal with it for one night.

  36. Deb says:

    Never been a fan of Wintour or Vogue, but I wholeheartedly support her anti-Kardashian stance.

  37. valleymiss says:

    Wintour is a snobby bitch, and I’m glad she’s using that power for good! Ugh, hate KK.

  38. sup says:

    go anna wintour! i knew there was a reason for me liking her hbic attitude

  39. Karen says:

    She “would of done anything”? I know this is petty but bad grammar makes me want to punch things. It’s “would HAVE”. I’m sorry for being so anal.

    • stinky says:

      do not apologize. chatting is one thing, but it’s gross to see the end of proper grammar in print.

      • jwoolman says:

        I make a living with written language and just find “would of” an interesting phonetic rendering of “would’ve”, which is a contraction of “would have”, so it doesn’t bother me at all. Of course, these days anything can just be your phone’s innocent attempt to impose its way on your words, if you’re posting on one. Since I started doing that, I find the oddest things posted in my name that I know I never typed… The problem is that unless I catch it before the text rolls out of reach (can’t scroll), I don’t see it before posting unless I take the extra step of copying and pasting into mail. Which I won’t do now, so you folks on the spelling and grammar police force can blame my phone for any errors.

  40. bns says:

    “Anna hates Kim,”

    Reading that warmed my heart a little and made me giggle.

  41. jover says:

    No fan of anne wintour but applaud her stand on a lardassian; now if she would only overcome her obsession with celebs and go back to putting models on the cover and finding better photographers for the eds – no one has yet given a satisfactory explanation of how the lardassians appear on so many covers – are they just paying the mags off?

    • anonymoose says:

      “No fan of anne wintour but applaud her stand on a lardassian; now if she would only overcome her obsession with celebs and go back to putting models on the cover and finding better photographers for the eds”

      yes yes YES.

    • sup says:

      the “lard-ass-ian” part made me chuckle.

  42. Alia says:



  43. A. says:

    I read ”… the biggest stars” and I believed it… untill I saw Lala Anthony.

    Oh and who the phuck is Azealia Banks?

    This story makes no sense at all…

    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      Azealia Banks is a singer. Only know her because she did an Interpol cover of Slow Hands, was kind of meh.

  44. Kim says:

    The fact that Kanye went somewhere thesupposed “love of his life” is hated shows their relationship is a farce for the cameras. That or he is a total douche bag! Well both – its a farce and he IS a douche bag!

  45. Deedee says:

    Oh, please! Kim has more important things to do anyway. Like posting pics of herself on twitter all day long.

  46. me says:

    If she continues to date a man that attended a party from which she was publicly shunned then she can no longer claim not to only be with him for publicity and money.

  47. maria says:

    I am not a KKK fan at all but one thing I am tired of is the ‘porn start’ or ‘whore’ comments as I am pro sex and have no issue with women who are EMPOWERED sexually to work in the sex industry ;and it is only puritans that vilified the sex industry before that prostitutes were revered as were cortisons and most of them were smarter than Kim or her sisters can ever hope to be. I don’t watch porn but I have no issue with the people who make it if that is their CHOICE-now with that being said I can see maybe people meant that she thinks she is a A-lister when all she is famous for is letting the world see her have sex and even more intimant albeit often staged family life. To equate her to a ‘porn star’ or ‘whore’ I think makes the sex workers look bad-I know many sex workers with MAsters Degrees -just read the Rumpus and can see plenty of veru over educated sex workers when Kim can hardly string a cohesive sentence or write on! The best clip I have seen was her ex Husband Hump,offered to correct her grammatical errors on a book inro she wrote(?) anyway, all I am saying is Kim could only hope to be as smart as the sex workers I have known/met and I mean the ones working by choice-

    • Sassy says:

      The word is “courtesan” dear, and they were prostitutes. Try spell check honey.

    • jwoolman says:

      Hopefully most people could forgive and forget any unwise actions in our youths, so her amateur porn of yesteryear doesn’t really bother me. But I have developed a serious allergic reaction to the Kardashian Krew as a result of unavoidable overexposure. They’re everywhere! I don’t even watch their stupid shows but I know way too much because their infinitely long promos and endless reruns keep popping up on E, during and at the start/finish of shows I really do want to watch. Anyway, they’re all such obnoxious manipulative liars in the here and now, I think that’s the real source of Kimmie-hate on the net. The fakeroonie wedding and subsequent smear campaign against her Midwestern temporary toy has been the last straw for many, although I think the krack in the Kardashian dam may have especially started with that obscene “bridal registry” she and her mom concocted. Then the 3 wedding dresses, the refusal to just return the wedding gifts or get the store to issue credits for all those undelivered gifts, the fake scenes inserted months later in her pseudoreality show to pretend she was talking about marriage problems, the fake crocodile tears, etc. – well, really, Kim has been shooting herself in the foot with no need to go back even a year.

  49. sluggo says:

    “Kim and her camp will deny that she wasn’t invited by saying that she had business in L.A., but that is a lie,” the source says. “She would of done anything to be there with all the A-listers.”

    Aaaaaaand … that is exactly what is happening. The loud noise you hear in the background is E’s web site on spin cycle, claiming that the whole story is “FALSE!” and that the REAL reason KK wasn’t there was (wait for it) she had important business. As in, a photo shoot for her important fashion line.

    Never mind the fact that Kimho had previously Tweeted how excited she was about the gala. Never mind the fact that she was seen all over town running errands. AND never mind the fact that her so-called “fashion line” is decorating clearance racks all over the country.

    E! has to protect its investment, KK has to save some overjacked face, so they’re in damage-control mode. I mean, who are you going to believe about this? Of COURSE you’re going to believe the web site of a network that just shoveled $40+ million down a very overrated hole, and the hole itself. I mean, who wouldn’t? (/snark)

    Too bad it’s spiraling out of control; you should see the comments on E’s page reporting this “false lie” about KK not being allowed entry … NOT EVEN IF SHE PAID FOR IT.

    God, I find myself loving Anna Wintour, and I think I will now go ahead and renew my Vogue subscription. For the next ten YEARS.

  50. jc126 says:

    Good for Anna Wintour. I’d have banned her too.

  51. stellalovejoydiver says:

    LOL @ big screen bombshell Goop, how did she have to pay them to write that?

  52. skuddles says:

    Anna Wintour is a stone cold bitch and I think I love her 😀 Drives me nuts the way some people equate Krapdashian’s talent for farewhorery (and just plain whorery) with actual relevance. More people need to say no to this type of no-merit, bullsh*t “celeb”.

  53. original almond says:

    Mega-bitch though Wintour may be, she put someone in her place who badly needed it. On another site people were speculating if perhaps this would cause some major designers to distance themselves from this trick, in order not to incur the wrath of Wintor.

    I may be overly optimistic, but perhaps this will start a new trend in blacklisting these pseudo-celebs.

    Oh, and I don’t think anyone was wondering or was remotely interested in why this fame-ho was not there.

  54. lola lola says:

    So we have to see her hideous face is she shows up at an event AND if she doesn’t get an invite? Ugh. Please just make the Kash’s GO AWAY! (sorry, really felt like yelling)…
