According to reports over in the US, reality TV star Kim Kardashian has been told "You shall go to the ball", or the Met Gala to be precise. This prestigious annual New York fashion extravaganza is presided over by US Vogue editor Anna Wintour who this year has invited the creative input of Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, actress Rooney Mara and US Vogue contributing editor Lauren Santo Domingo. Kim has never previously attended the event and there are even rumours that she was deliberately left off the list in the past under orders from Wintour herself. There's no snubbing allowed this year however as Kim's boyfriend and baby daddy Kanye West is performing at the event.
A fashion insider told Life & Style: "Kanye West and Kim Kardashian will both be attending the Met Gala in NYC on May 6. Because Kanye is performing he was allowed to invite her.” Earlier this month we revealed that Beyonce had been named an honorary Met Ball chair so it looks like Kimye will have the company of good friends Bey and Jay-Z on the night, alongside the fashion industry's finest, including (we're hoping) Cara Delevingne.
Will Kim Kardashian and Kanye West wear Givenchy Spring/ Summer 2013?
Kim and Kanye always cause a stir when they step out together, particularly as they adhere to matchy matchy monochrome style rules. As West is a good friend of Italian fashion designer Tisci we reckon both he and his girlfriend will opt to wear Givenchy on the red carpet, as they did when they attended the brand's Autumn / Winter 2013 catwalk presentation in Paris last month. The only question is, will Kim be on our worst dressed or best-dressed list?
