The Met Gala: Who's Banned? Anna Wintour's Never-Invite Guest

It's the most popular social gathering of the year and is frequently referred to as the...

"Oscars of the East Coast"; invitations are extremely difficult to come by. However, in our opinion,

the list of those who are denied entry to the Met Gala is much more interesting than the list of attendees.

The extravagant occasion serves as both a charity fundraiser for the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art,

which is the only part of the institution not supported by the government,

and a celebration of the year's most recent fashion-related exhibition.

Don't assume that anyone can purchase a ticket simply because it is a charity event; it is also the hottest social event in the fashion industry.
