No snub here!
Khloé Kardashian may not have made her Met Gala debut until 2022 — almost a decade after sister Kim — but on Thursday’s new episode of Hulu’s “The Kardashians,” she revealed she was asked to attend before then.
“I have been invited in the past. I just opted not to go,” Khloé said in a confessional interview. “I’m not big on red carpets. I think I’ve made that very clear.”
In fact, the Good American co-founder might not have attended this past May, had it not been for Kim.
“Good old Kimberly has a way with words,” she said. “And I am also sort of a pushover with some things, and I guess I allowed her to push me over.”
Said Kim in her own confessional, “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.”
By finally showing up, the Skims founder added, Khloé would be sending the message, “‘F—k you. I’m invited to the Met, dude, like, I’m going.’”
Khloé, 38, hit the red carpet wearing a glittering gold Moschino gown that leaned into the event’s “Gilded Glamour” theme. As the star tweeted at the time, designer Jeremy Scott made the dress “in about 10 days.”
And she didn’t hold back from admitting she suffered some first-time jitters at the gala. “Am I supposed to admit that I almost had a heart attack on that carpet tonight?” she tweeted after the event. “My anxiety was through the roof!”
The “Revenge Body” star previously denied that she was “banned” from past Met Galas; in September 2021, when a fan tweeted, “khloé now that you are online please tell [if] the met gala rumors are true,” she responded, “Absolutely NOT True.”
This year’s fancy fête marked the first time all the Kardashian-Jenner women — Kim, Kourtney, Khloé, Kris, Kendall and Kylie — attended the Met Gala together. It was also 43-year-old Kourtney’s first time at the star-studded event.
