Bethenny Frankel, however, believes that Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, is attempting to "class" up the Met Gala red carpet in 2023 by omitting the Kardashians from the guest list.

“Maybe [Wintour] got all the juice out of that lemon, and now she wants to class it up,” Frankel, 52, said.

Frankel's Take On Why The Kardashian Has Graced Previous Met Galas

At the "peak of their fame," Frankel described the Kardashians as "unavoidable," and she posited that Wintour, whom she jokingly referred to as the "HBIC" (Head Bitch in Charge), invited the famous family to prior Met Galas more as a business decision to "sell magazines" than to present them as representatives of the fashion industry.

A Kardashian Intervention

Frankel claims that many are calling for a "Kardashian intervention" since the tides are turning. She thinks Wintour welcomed the family when there was a huge demand for their stuff, but that now people had "gotten sick of [the Kardashians]."

A Kardashian Cleanse

“We’re in a situation where people want a Kardashian cleanse,”

Frankel added, donning chic black-rimmed spectacles and a plush gray turtleneck sweater.

The CEO of Skinnygirl also speculated that Kim would have angered fashion insiders by wearing Marilyn Monroe's classic "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" gown to the 2022 Met Gala when it ought to have remained in a museum.

Frankel remarked,

“I don’t see Anna Wintour wearing [head-to-toe logos] that seem like [they’re] for the masses,” Frankel said. “That’s for people that just want to participate and, like, show off and flex and pretend they’re fashionable.”

"🤔 Kardashians are dated and not really relevant today. they dont really do anything different or keep up with the ever changing contribution"

While another added;

"KK has no personal style. Fashion is more than just what is popular at the moment. Fashion is an art form and reflects all aspects of life."

When Kim First Attended The Met

In 2013, Kim was the first person to be added to the elite guest list, and she attended with her ex-husband Kanye West while she was expecting their first child. She has subsequently developed a reputation as one of the evening's most anticipated arrivals.
