Just when you thought Anna Wintour had come to her senses. It looks like the Met Gala 2023 will be another star-studded glamorous event. I mean, parties don’t come more coveted than the swanky New York City night to show yourself off. Famous celebs come dressed in their finest couture frocks in an attempt to knock the fashion community off its feet.
Sometimes the fashion community is knocked off its feet but it isn’t from an overabundance of class or stunning gowns. They might roll on the floor in sheer misery after witnessing a direct assault to both their eyeballs and any semblance of fashion expertise.
Former Keeping Up with the Kardashian star Kim Kardashian has been a frequent guest of the event in the past. She also has the honor of wearing one of the most
hideous memorable outfits the Met Gala red carpet has ever seen.
Kim and her family don’t usually garner the type of attention Anna wants to put on display in association with her events. But The Kardashians‘ popularity and a marriage to a high-profile entertainer afforded Kim slots on the guest list.
In March, the rumor mill was buzzing that Kim and Kompany were not attending the ball this year. Oddly enough, that seems to have been resolved. Page Six has the details. In 2022 the entire Kardashian family “attended [the Met Gala] en masse.” This year insiders shared Anna was making cuts to the guest list and not one Kardashian received the golden ticket.
Looks like Kris Jenner made a call! Kimmy will now head to New York and do what she does best, stare into a camera. Kim probably won’t be the only member of her family to hit the rug. Chances are very good Kendall Jenner will report for duty. This actually makes sense as Kendall is a very sought-after model in the fashion biz.
Last season Kourtney Kardashian attended with Travis Barker and they basically showed as much of their tongues as possible for the photo ops. Honestly, no one needed to see that but fortunately the couple has managed to control their desires lately. Khloé Kardashian also went for the first time last year. I guess her first will be her last because now she’s sitting at home still pining over Tristan Thompson.
After Kim’s initial 2013 debut, she’s been a regular at the Gala. In 2019 she went with a “wet” look created by legendary designer Thierry Mugler. In 2021 she showed up looking like, I don’t know, a Ninja in a face-covering bodysuit by Balenciaga. It really was the perfect piece to wear if you wanted to rob a boutique in the middle of the night but you’d already taken off your thieving make-up. But the stuff totally hit the fan when Kim messed with Marilyn Monroe’s iconic “Happy Birthday” dress last year.
The Met Gala will take place on May 1, 2023, and the theme is, “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty.” No word on whether or not PK Kemsley will recreate his historic Karl Lagerfeld impersonation and attend on behalf of Karl’s ghost. At this time, we don’t know what Kim will be wearing, but it will probably include a big screw-you in Anna’s general direction.
