Ever since Kanye West flew solo at last year’s Met Gala, the tabs and internets have swarmed with rumors that fashion icon and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour had blacklisted Kim from the event. But now a Life & Style report asserts that Kim is on the guest list this year, along with her stylish boyfriend/baby-dad, Kanye West.

For those of you who aren’t fashion obsessed like us — you probably have money in your savings accounts or whatever — the Met Ball or Met Gala celebrates the annual opening of the Metropolitan Museum's fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute. Why should Kim care? Well, it’s the fashion event of the season — outside of, you know, Fashion Week — and full of A-list celebs. The gala is co-hosted by Vogue and Elle, and Anna Wintour is in charge of the guest list.

Anna is said to be super selective about who makes the list, and the rumor is that she has barred Kim from the list in the past on the grounds that she’s “tacky.” We wouldn’t put it past her — after all, Anna is the all-but-confirmed inspiration for the titular demon in The Devil Wears Prada.

If Life&Style is correct in its report, however, then perhaps Kim has simply become chic, either on her own or by association with Kanye. Either way, a “fashion insider” tells Life & Style exclusively that ‘Ye is bringing his main squeeze to this year’s ball.

"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.”

How sweet! Maybe the famously cold-hearted Ann has thawed a little.
