What does Rihanna’s solo walk on the red carpet and Kanye West showing up without Kim Kardashian for Monday’s (April 7) MET ball have in common? Well both scenarios are a direct result of Vogue editor’s Anna Wintour’s personal request.
As reported by MSDTV, Kanye West showed up solo to the MET ball on Monday even though last year he brought former stripper Amber Rose to the gala. So why wasn’t Kanye’s new girlfriend Kim Kardashian with him for fashion’s biggest night of the year?
Well according to reports – it’s because Anna Wintour despises her.
Radar Online reports:
“Anna hates Kim,” a source says. “Why would she be invited to the event? It is all the biggest stars in the world and Kim doesn’t fit that bill at all.”
“The Met Gala is $25,000 a ticket, but Kim can’t even buy her way in, Anna Wintour does NOT want her there!” the source says.
Similarly, Anna Wintour also showed her displeasure to pop singer Rihanna who arrived onto the red carpet for the MET Ball 40 minutes late.
The Sun reports:
“Rihanna planned to walk the carpet with everyone else but, sadly, her nails and manicurist took far longer than expected.
“Her chauffeur was told to drive around the block several times, as she made last-minute changes, but her ‘people’ didn’t warn organizers she’d be late.
“She missed her slot on the red carpet and left Anna in a frenzy. The pair had a heated conversation during the champagne reception.
“Rihanna will not be invited to any of her future events any time soon.”
Sheesh. The devil wears Prada indeed.
