Is the Met Gala in the Kards for reality TV’s first family?
The Met Gala could be Kardashian-free this year after the whole family of reality stars attended en masse for the first time in 2022.
Sources tell Page Six that Vogue boss Anna Wintour is cracking down on the guest list at the annual fashion fete — and that no Kardashians will make the cut.
Vogue wouldn’t comment on the event’s guest list when we reached out.
But a source familiar with the Kardashian-Jenner clan says it’s not true that the first family of reality TV isn’t invited to the big ball.
Either way, we hear that so far it’s unclear whether anyone from the family — including Kim Kardashian, will be in attendance.
Kim attended the Met Gala for the first time in 2013 with then-husband Kanye West while she was pregnant with their first child — and has since become a Met Gala fixture.
She tweeted in 2019 recalling her first time at the event nearly a decade ago: “I didn’t know anyone [and] I’m sure no one wanted me there.” She added that after the event, for which she did her own lipstick, “I went home [and] cried after of insecurity.”
She has ever-since been a regular known for rocking outfits at the event by Givenchy, Lanvin, Roberto Cavalli, Balmain, Vivienne Westwood, Versace and Balenciaga — plus a vintage Marilyn Monroe number from 1962.
But her sisters Khloé and Kourtney Kardashian only attended the gala for the first time last year — and it marked the first time the whole family was on the red carpet together, including matriarch Kris and successful sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner.
Despite reports she’d been snubbed in the past, Khloé, 38, subsequently alleged on the fam’s Hulu series that she’d actually turned down past Met Gala invites, since, “I’m not big on red carpets. I think I’ve made that very clear.”
She further said Kim, 42, talked her into attending.
But the Super Bowl of fashion has also been dinged in recent years by some insiders for being overrun with influencers, such as Kardashian acolyte Addison Rae last year.
The star-studded event takes place this year on May 1 with the theme “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty.”
