Kim Kardashian may have been able to afford the hefty R200,000 ticket to fashion's biggest night, but fashion's biggest boss still barred her from attending the Met Gala.

According to reports, the reason Kardashian did not attend the Gala was because Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour ensured that the reality TV star wouldn't be accepted into the Gala.

While Kardashian's boyfriend, megastar Kanye West was at the event in New York, Kardashian did not attend and was seen driving around Los Angeles in the rapper's Mercedes McLaren sports car.

According to RadarOnline, an insider says: "Anna hates Kim. 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."

Attendees at the Gala included Jessica Alba, Beyonce (whose see-through dress grabbed headlines), Gwyneth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz.

Daily Mail goes on to quote the insider as saying: "Anna Wintour would allow Kim Kardashian on the cover of Vogue over her dead body. As long as Anna in charge you will NOT see Kim on Vogue."

Jezebel also quotes the source: "Kim and her camp will deny that she wasn't invited by saying that she had business in LA, but that is a lie. She would [have] done anything to be there with all the A-listers."

Kardashian blogged about the Gala, with Christian Post quoting the 31-year-old as writing: "I love to see all of the amazing fashions each year in New York at the MET Gala!

"This year my favourites were Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady, Renee Zellweger, Jessica Alba, Hilary Swank, Cameron Diaz, Lala Anthony and my ultimate favourite… Karolina Kurkova! Hands down the most gorgeous look of the night!"

Czech model Kurkova wore a rose gold Rachel Zoe floor-length dress and matching turban.
