Like everyone else, you may have wondered why Khloé Kardashian never made her Met Gala debut until 2022, almost a decade after her sister Kim Kardashian appeared, but on Thursday’s new episode of Hulu’s “The Kardashians,” she revealed that she was invited.
Speaking about why the Good American co-founder was never seen, Khloé said, “I have been invited in the past. I just opted not to go. I’m not big on red carpets. I think I’ve made that very clear.”
It also appears that she may not have attended the last one if not for Kim. “Good old Kimberly has a way with words. And I am also sort of a pushover with some things, and I guess I allowed her to push me over,” she said.
Then, Kim said, “Khloé has always been really nervous to go to the Met. So I was like, ‘You’re gonna look amazing. You’re gonna use my glam. We’re gonna get ready together. We’re gonna make this the best experience ever.”
Kim also pointed out how excited Khloé was, sending the message, “‘F—k you. I’m invited to the Met, dude, like, I’m going.’”
Khloé appeared on the red carpet in a shimmering gold Moschino gown that matched the event’s “Gilded Glamour” theme. Designer Jeremy Scott created the outfit “in roughly 10 days,” as the actress tweeted at the time.
Khloé never wanted anyone to know that she was shy about appearing at the event at first. “Am I supposed to admit that I almost had a heart attack on that carpet tonight? My anxiety was through the roof!”
Meanwhile, there was a rumour that Khloé was banned from past Met Galas. Then, in September 2021, a fan tweeted, asking her to clarify that issue; “khloé now that you are online please tell [if] the met gala rumors are true,” to which the reality show star replied, “Absolutely NOT True.”
