Even the hottest celebs don’t automatically get an invite to the Met Gala- Kate Upton didn’t!
The Sports Illustrated cover girl had her heart set on being included in fashion’s biggest night of the year, but didn’t get on the coveted “list.” Of course, Anna Wintour, Vogue‘s editor-in-chief, approves every name on the guest list. Poor Kate had to go to Wintour herself, write a check flat out, and was silently accepted into the elite party.
Let’s be honest: everyone there pays 25,000, because it IS a benefit for The Costume Institute. Still, it’s extremely exclusive. Kate, you’ve got courage!
