Not so long ago that the ‘pope’ ‘fashion’ that is Anna Wintur, editor of ‘Vogue’, promoter of the ‘fashion-is-culture’ mantra, as well as organizer and honorary co-president of one of the biggest fashion ‘shows’, the met galaI had banned to the event to the Kardashian.
The soiree, which has been held since 1948 with the aim of raising funds for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, is since 1995 the favorite toy of the most famous fashion editor in the world. She is the one who decides who can attend and who cannot. It is not enough, then, to pay the stratospheric price of admission (according to the ‘New York Times’, 35,000 dollars for stepping on the steps and 200,000 for sitting down to dinner; although the ‘celebrities’ do not usually drop a penny, since it is the fashion firms who pay them the cutlery in exchange for them looking their rags).
The pioneers in the parade
First was kim kardashian (in 2013, when she was pregnant with North, and on the arm of her then-husband, Kanye West) and, later, her little sister Kendall Jenner, which began to attend the Met gala. But never until this year had they all coincided completely.
This first Monday of May 2022, for the first time in history, almost the entire Kar-Jenner clan will attend the coolest carnival.
Since to this post-pandemic edition will not attend, unfortunately -and for having the agenda full of filming-, Zendayathe undisputed queen of all the red carpets she steps on, at least the show is guaranteed with the ‘Marquisees of Instagram’ and the small screen.
kourtney kardashian43, the eldest sister of the popular family that has just released a new ‘reality’ (‘Las Kardashian’) on Disney+, has received her first invitation to the New York fashion event snatched and plans to take her fiancé, Travis Barker, as reported by ‘The Post’. Kourtney’s sister, khloe kardashian37, also has his invitation and is looking forward to it.
Wintour is counting on Kim bringing her new ‘Saturday Night Live’ comedian boyfriend this time Peter Davidson.
It is also expected to mother of the clan, Chris Jennerand the sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner who have already attended other times.
big city families
The theme of this year’s Met Gala, ‘Gilded Glamor’ (the Golden Age), has been one of the reasons that would have motivated Anna Wintour to invite the famous and controversial clan, given the influence, power and fortune they have in New York today. Like at the end of the 19th century it was held by families such as the Astors, the Vanderbilts and the Rockefellers.
Although a while ago I considered her vulgar, Wintour blessed Kim Kardashian’s new style in 2019when in an interview in ‘Vogue’ she finely stated: “Personally, I admire the way she’s become a little more minimalist in the way she dresses and a little more covered up.”
It is not planned, however, that the Met Gala 2022 will be attended by the brother, Rob (who is rarely seen in public, and is currently involved in a legal battle with his ex-girlfriend, Blac Chyna), nor the Kim’s ex Kanye West ‘cancelled’.
