NY: SCHIAPARELLI AND PRADA MET BALL – ARRIVALS
In 2012, Anna Wintour snubbed Kanye West's then-girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, by refusing the reality star a coveted ticket to her annual Met Costume Institute Gala in New York City. West went anyway and was photographed walking the red carpet solo.

The following year, "Nuclear Wintour" thawed a bit and allowed Kardashian to attend on West's arm. However, behind closed doors she was blunt about her disdain for Kardashian's reality roots—and extended family. As Radar reported, Wintour shot down Kris Jenner's request to attend the gala with her girl. "One Kardashian is enough!" Wintour reportedly sniped.

"I think if we just remain deeply tasteful and put deeply tasteful people on the cover, it would be a rather boring magazine," Wintour sniffed in a backhanded compliment to the fame-hungry couple.

Publicly, Wintour made it pretty clear she was only using the two for a little controversy. "Now and again one has to do things like that," she said, explaining that otherwise, "nobody would talk about us. It's very important that people talk about us."
