Here's Who Anna Wintour Would Never Invite Back To The Met Gala

As Editor-in-chief at US Vogue, Anna Wintour isn't just in charge of one of the most influential glossy fashion bibles in the world - she's also all-powerful when it comes to the guest list for the Met Gala, arguably the most stylish event in any A-lister's calendar.

Affectionately nicknamed the 'fashion Oscars' (though the night itself is actually a charitable function, designed to raise money for the Met's Costume Institute and timed to coincide with the opening of its annual major exhibition, rather than an awards do), the guest list is typically a who's who of everyone who's everyone. As one would expect of such a sought after event, the selection criteria is notoriously secretive - though naturally it helps if you've just made a multi-million endowment to the Met, or maybe netted yourself a handful of Oscars or Grammys. In a recent interview with chat show host and fellow Brit in America James Corden, however, the industry legend had no qualms about revealing who won't be receiving an invitation to future galas.

'Anna, you've famously hosted the Met Gala that takes place in Manhattan each year,' Corden said. 'Celebrities are desperate to get a ticket. Who would you never invite back to the Met Gala?'

Her answer, which came almost instantaneously? 'Donald Trump.'

You might be surprised (or not) to learn that the Trump family haven't always been so firmly out of favour with Wintour: in fact, they have a long history with the Met Gala. The now-president made his debut on the Met steps in the mid-80s, with his then-wife Ivana, and in fact proposed to his third wife Melania at the event in 2004. His daughter Ivanka has also previously attended with her husband Jared Kushner, most memorably added green streaks to her blonde hair in keeping with the punk theme of 2013's Chaos to Couture gala.

The White House is yet to respond to Wintour's pointed diss, though given the current commander-in-chief's penchant for missives of 140 characters or less, we can probably expect a Twitter reaction imminently...
