- Kim Kardashian and her half-sisters, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, were at the Met Gala on Monday night but Khloe was absent and the reason has now been revealed.
Khloe reportedly didn’t get an invite to the Met Gala though her mum and sisters did. Kourtney Kardashian was also absent but it was revealed that she got an invite but chose to stay home with Khloe Kardashian. Mirror UK claims Khloe wasn’t invited because Vogue editor Anna Wintour doesn’t think she’s famous enough on her own.
Radar Online claims an insider told them Anna “thinks she’s too C-list to be there”. “Everyone in the family knows that it is Kim’s night. She literally talks about it all year long.” The source added: “Khloe and Kourtney have never been invited to the Met Gala, but Kourtney was invited to this one and chose to stay home with Khloe because she didn’t want to leave her alone.” Kim has made no secret of her desire to join the A-list crowd and was thrilled when she received her first invite to the Met Gala in 2015.
She told Vogue: “I used to dream about this night. I used to sit home in bed on my computer looking at all of the pictures of everyone, dreaming one day that I could ever attend a Met Ball, and never even believing that that would ever happen. “So to be the cover girl, going to the Met in Mugler is honestly the biggest dream come true and I’m so humbled by the idea that this is my life.”
She recalled how she wasn’t invited for the first Met Gala she attended and only went as husband Kanye West’s plus one. She said “Kanye said something so cute the other day, he was like, ‘you know what? It’s like I would go to the Met and I would perform’, and my first Met year I was his plus one and I wasn’t really invited yet, so he’s like, ‘this year I’m just your plus one, you’re the cover girl and I’m your plus one, so I’ll just fade out in the background and just be your date and let you shine’.”As she was being dressed in her Thierry Mugler gown, Kim said: “This is probably as nerve-wracking as my wedding.”
