Kim Kardashian banned from the Met Gala by Vogue editor Anna Wintour?!/Becky_DiStefano/status/200259599696273408

The Met Gala, held at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, is a time for class, refinery, and true A-listers showing off the best their fashionable style has to offer.

That may explain why Kim Kardashian wasn’t there.

Furthermore, it would appear that the world’s most effortless socialite was banned from the event, despite her controversial boyfriend being one of its biggest stars.

Who would dare to come between Kim-Yeezy, you ask? Who would step up and put their foot down and not allow any shameless pandering to the Kardashian family?

Mr. Trebek, I think I’ve got an answer to the $200 question: Who is Anna Wintour?

For those fine but uninformed folk, Anna Wintour is editor-in-chief of Vogue, one of the Gala chairs, and someone who doesn’t seem too keen on Kim Kardashian.

Many are backing her decision, supporting the good of this use of power.

Like you need a reason to love Anna Wintour? Here's one anyway. She can't bear Kim Kardashian. #metball | Radar

Anna Wintour does not play and that is why Kim Kardashian was not at the Met Ball

But have no fear Kardashian fans, Kim isn’t shaken, nor is she stirred. If anything, she’s got bigger issues on her plate than the Met Gala.

I think I see a real UFO!!!! #AmIOnMARS???
