Kim Kardashian fears she is ‘losing her grip’ on elite fashion industry after false rumors she was banned from Met Gala

Kim Kardashian fears she is ‘losing her grip’ on elite fashion industry after false rumors she was banned from Met Gala

KIM Kardashian, 42, fears she is “losing her grip” in the elite fashion industry as she is desperate to “score points against” her ex-husband Kanye West, 45, a source has exclusively told The U.S. Sun.

The Kardashian star has been rumored to have been banned from the Met Gala as Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is “cracking down” on the guest list after Kim has had a rough year.

An insider claimed: “It’s a bit of a hollow victory now for Kim.”

“She’s been so obsessed with trying to make it in the fashion world, but it’s been a bumpy year for her and she feels like she’s getting a lot of knock-backs.”

The source gushed: “After a few years of being in and getting that acceptance from the fashion world, it’s starting to feel like a lot of this may be slipping.”

Sources say Kim is afraid “doors [will be] closing in her face.”

Last year, Kim was the brand representative for Balenciaga and even had her own show with Dolce & Gabbana.

However, Kim hasn’t had as large of a spotlight in 2023.

The source claimed: “That matters to her… as she has a lot of ambitions and has some points to score against her ex Kanye.”

“I think it feels like she’s starting to lose her grip on things,” the insider concluded.

The U.S. Sun has reached out to Kim’s rep for comment.


Earlier this year, an insider told Page Six that Kim nor her family would be invited to the Met Gala on May 1, despite walking the carpet in previous years.

Vogue wouldn’t comment on the guest list upon the publication’s request, while another source told the outlet that the stars could still make an appearance.

Setting the record straight, an insider close to the situation exclusively told The U.S. Sun: “Anna had wanted to do a cull of the guest list this year and make it more of an exclusive event.”

The source continued: “And while lots of names were discussed, attendees have always been an ongoing conversation and nothing was ever set in stone.”

“Kim was never told she might not be on the list.”

The Met Gala insider explained: “While invites have now officially been sent out and Kim has been confirmed, the news leak about her possibly not getting an invite did see tensions run high behind the scenes in what has been a big misunderstanding.”

The source said Kim was left “very unhappy” and relationships between her and the Conde Nast team have been strained as staffers tried to smooth things over.

“It’s been embarrassing for everyone involved but Kim is still excited and has already been working with a top fashion house to design a custom look for the night,” the insider added.

A second source told The U.S. Sun that she has been on the list since the fall and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenners have been invited, although it is not yet confirmed who will attend.

This year’s A-list event follows the theme “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty.”


The entire Kardashian-Jenner clan made their Met Gala debut last year with the addition of Kourtney, 43, and Khloe, 38.

Khloe previously did not score an invite because Anna Wintour allegedly labeled her as “too C-list” for the prestigious event.

Sources revealed the Good American founder was not invited to the soiree as she could not compete with the host of modelingfilm, and music stars.

However, in the past, Khloe insisted she turned down several invites.

Upon finally accepting an invite, Khloe rocked a beaded, gold Moschino dress, which fans criticized as “boring” for the Gilded Glamour theme.

Kim’s look was one of the most talked about last year, as she donned Marilyn Monroe‘s historic $5million gown she wore while singing “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy in 1962.


Kim went all out for the evening, bleaching her dark locks blonde and “losing 16 pounds” in three weeks to fit into the slinky number.

The star was later slammed by Monroe fans who felt she shouldn’t have worn the dress borrowed from Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, which shut down rumors that she damaged it after a photograph emerged online.

She was guided up the famed steps at the Metropolitan Museum of Art by her then-boyfriend, Pete Davidson, 29.

Kim, who is now single, had previously made an impression at the A-list event, first attending in 2013 as a plus-one to her now ex-husband, Kanye.

She Tweeted in 2019 about the first time she attended almost 10 years ago, admitting: “I didn’t know anyone [and] I’m sure no one wanted me there.”
