Was Khloe Kardashian Banned From The Met Gala?

The Met Gala, which usually falls on the first Monday in May, occurred on September 13th this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event is one of fashion's biggest nights out with celebrities from all corners of the entertainment world coming together to be dressed by the world's best fashion designers in support of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. From Olympic athletes to trending TikTokers and YouTubers, it seemed as though no celebrity was off limits when it came to walking the red carpet. However, there were some celebrities that were purposely left off the guest list.

The Kardashian family members are frequent guests of the event, with Kim, Kendall, Kylie, and Kris making annual appearances. Notably absent each year, though, are Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian. Despite Khloe being noticeably absent from the carpet each year, she takes to social media to support her sisters. For instance, the former "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star posted photos of Kim and Kendall at the after party on social media with the caption, "I can't handle this type of perfection," following the September event, per The Sun. Khloe also wasn't present at the last gala in 2019, but still took to social media to rave over her family's looks. "I seriously cannot get over how incredible my sisters look tonight! I'm dreaming of them!" she said at the time, according to The Sun.

So why is the Good American founder banned from fashion's biggest night, despite most of her family being there? Read on to find out.

Anna Wintour does not want Khloe Kardashian at the Met Gala

Vogue Magazine's editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, who has chaired the Met Gala since 1995, reportedly thinks Khloe is "too C-list" for the event, per The Sun. Kourtney, who is dating Blink 182's Travis Barker, was supposedly invited to this year's gala, but turned it down in a show of solidarity with her sister, per Radar Online. Prior to the chatter surrounding her absence from the event, the "Revenge Body" star opened up about the hard time she's been going through.

In August, she posted on Twitter in response to fans who tweeted at her about her relationship with ex-boyfriend, NBA player Tristan Thompson, who is also the father to her only daughter, True. "It's pathetic but also infuriating all at the same time. People coming at me as if they know anything. GTFOH," the former DASH owner tweeted. "It is so old at this point. It's always something about people creating fake sh*t about me and actually terrorizing me about something THEY ARE CREATING. Without anyone knowing any facts," she wrote two minutes after the first tweet. 

Following the Met Gala, Khloe posted an emotional message to her Instagram Story. "At some point, you decide. You decide that this is where you are rooted. You make the decision to be happy right where you are," she wrote, per The Sun. The post then encouraged others to enjoy the moment they're in right now. It looks like Khloe is at peace with her current situation.
