Bethenny Frankel: Anna Wintour cut Kardashians from Met Gala to ‘class it up’
Bethenny Frankel thinks Vogue boss Anna Wintour wants to “class” up the Met Gala 2023 red carpet by leaving the Kardashians’ names off the guest list.
On Friday, the “Real Housewives of New York City” alum reacted on TikTok to Page Six’s exclusive report that the Kardashians might not have made the cut for this year’s fête, theorizing that Wintour might be moving away from reality TV’s first family and back to “true fashion people.”
“Maybe [Wintour] got all the juice out of that lemon, and now she wants to class it up,” Frankel, 52, said.
Referring to the Kardashians as “unavoidable” at the “peak of their fame,” Frankel speculated that Wintour — to whom she affectionately referred to as the “HBIC” (Head Bitch in Charge) — invited the famous family to previous Met Galas as more of a business move to “sell magazines” than to showcase them as representatives of the fashion industry.
However, the tides are shifting and people want a “Kardashian intervention,” according to Frankel. She believes Wintour invited the family when the demand for their content was at an all-time high, but that people have now “gotten full of [the Kardashians].”
“We’re in a situation where people want a Kardashian cleanse,” Frankel said while sporting stylish black-rimmed glasses and a cozy gray turtleneck sweater.
Frankel hypothesized that Wintour is making a move away from inviting big names, in a bid to “appeal to her base” of “true fashion people.”
