• Met Gala 2023 is coming this May
  • The Kardashians are reportedly not allowed to come
  • Reason for this: Anna Wintour

The legendary Met Gala, hosted by the Vogue boss Anna Wintour (73), is coming up again - but this year without the Kardashian-Jenner sisters. Last year they all glowed on the red carpet, but this year they are said to have received no invitation.

As an insider told Page Six, Kim (42) and her family were coldly shut out by Wintour. For the Vogue editor, the sisters are more influencers than stars and therefore have no right to be there. A tough decision that will likely disappoint Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner (27) in particular – after all, they are considered fashion icons, and Kendall is even considered a global top model.

Also interesting:

Anna Wintour has the last word and can decide who can take part in the legendary fashion event. Even with an invite, it costs celebrities $30,000 to attend. There hasn't been a Met Gala without Kim Kardashian in a decade. It remains to be seen how she will react to this gossip.

No place for influencers?

Wintour's decision to ice out the Kardashian-Jenner sisters also raises questions about whether influencers are even welcome at the Met Gala. The influential fashion boss has often stressed in the past that she wants to focus on real stars.

But in recent years, more and more influencers can be seen on the red carpet at the Met Gala - from TikTok star Addison Rae (22) to YouTuber Emma Chamberlain (21).

Kim Kardashian as a style icon

It's a surprise that Kim Kardashian won't be attending the Met Gala - after all, she's had a history of turning heads on the red carpet. Her 2019 outfit, designed by Mugler, was so form-fitting to her body that she found it very difficult to move or walk. But she showed perseverance and posed gracefully for the cameras.

Kendall Jenner is also considered a style icon and has often been praised for her outfits at the Met Gala in the past. She has worn a Versace dress with feathers and a La Perla dress with crystals, among other things.

The meaning of the Met Gala

The Met Gala, held each May at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, is one of the most important fashion events of the year. The evening marks the opening of a new exhibition at the museum and attracts the elite from the fashion, film and music industries each year.

The event has a long tradition and dates back to 1948. Since then it has developed into one of the most coveted events in the fashion industry.
