Met Gala 2018: Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian broke Anna Wintour’s ‘no selfie’ rule

Met Gala 2018: Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian broke Anna Wintour’s ‘no selfie’ rule
09 May

ANNA Wintour has one strict rule for the Met Gala … a ban on ‘selfies’ for, well, no real reason at all.

But that didn’t stop Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian and co. who partied all night — and took the pouty posed photos to prove it.

Inside the Catholic-themed VVVIP ball, staged by Vogue editor-in-chief Wintour and held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Jenner posed with Kardashian and Ariana Grande, while Miley Cyrus cosied up to British designer Stella McCartney, and the ball’s co-chair Amal Clooney, who attended with her husband, George Clooney.

Lana Del Rey and Salma Hayek took a cheeky selfie together, as did Kardashian — who once published an entire book of her selfies titled Selfish — with Bella Hadid and Sarah Jessica Parker.

Wintour famously banned all social media from inside the Met Gala in 2015, then relaxed the rule to just selfies (though she has not publicly stated why the “ban” still exists).

Not that these stars seemed to care … at all.


While the Met Gala’s theme of “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” was followed to a strict standard on the red carpet, the same can’t be said for the afterparties, held at Manhattan clubs including 1OAK, Up & Down and at The Top of the Standard.

Bella Hadid, Rihanna and Kim Kardashian kicked on wearing, well, not much at all.

Kardashian led the charge, wearing a dominatrix-inspired Versace mini-dress, complete with a bondage-style leather bra and corset.

It was near-identical to an outfit Donatella Versace wore in 1993, to a party in New York that she attended with her late brother, Gianni Versace, according to Harper’s Bazaar.

Hadid also sported black leather, pairing a crop top with pants by Chrome Hearts (who also designed her much-talked about Met Gala ensemble).

Rihanna, of course, was typically Rihanna, in a glittering disco-look Nina Ricci blazer and matching trousers for the after-party she threw at Up & Down nightclub.

Vogue reported that the Needed Me singer arrived just before 3am, after changing out of the dramatic Pope-inspired John Galliano for Maison Margiela outfit she wore to the ball.
