It was widely reported that Kim was banned from the 2012 Met Gala at Anna's direction, though she was able to get a ticket the following year as Kanye's plus-one (and was even invited to a private dinner at Anna's house the evening before). Things hit a snag after the event, though, when Kim was mysteriously cropped out of her photos with Kanye on Vogue.com.
In October 2013, Kanye spoke out about the pictures, saying, "They tried to say she wasn’t there because they didn’t want a reality show girl there." About the magazine's inconsideration of Kim, he added, "There’s no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue. She’s like the most intriguing woman right now."
