The 2019 Met Gala was held in New York City last night, and once again, Hollywood’s best and brightest turned out to remind us all that they have a truly obscene amount of time on their hands, yet still struggle with understanding a simple theme.
As usual, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were in attendance.
No surprise there, as Kim is one of the most famous women on the planet, and Kanye’s love of fashion well-known.
(No word on why an avowed fashion lover would show up looking like he stole a set of coveralls from his mechanic in hope of trying out for the next Halloween movie, but that’s a conversation for another time.)
Anyway, Kylie and Kendall Jenner were also at the event, as was the momager who made it all happen, Kris Jenner.
But interestingly, both Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian were nowhere to be found.
We’d say they were conspicuously absent, but it turns out they’ve never attended the Met Gala!
Even more shocking is Radar Online’s claim that Kourtney was invited this year, but she stayed home out of sympathy for her uninvited younger sis.
Yes — believe it or not, Khloe is the only Kardashian sister who has never received an invitation to the Met Gala!
“Kim lives for the event and she would never want her Kardashian sisters there because that would take the attention away from her,” an insider tells Radar.
“Everyone in the family knows that it is Kim’s night. She literally talks about it all year long.”
Despite the fact that Kim has apparently protected her turf with the ruthlessness of an Old West outlaw, Kourtney managed to land an invite — but she stayed home out of sisterly solidarity.
“Khloe and Kourtney have never been invited to the Met Gala, but Kourtney was invited to this one and chose to stay home with Khloe because she didn’t want to leave her alone,” says the insider.
Of course, that may have been a savvy move on Kourt’s part.
Radar also reports that Beyonce sat this one out after deciding the event is effectively “over.”
“Beyonce feels like she is so much above everyone there,” one source claimed.
Sounds like the cool kids’ table has officially dubbed the Met Gala hella lame!
