Donald Trump has been banned from the Met Gala, with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour (who personally vets each attendee of the glitzy soiree) swearing on television he will never be invited again.
The fashion industry icon, 67, made the revelation while playing a game called Spill Your Guts Or Fill Your Guts on James Corden’s Late Late Show last night.
Wintour and Corden, 39, sat at a table covered with unpalatable concoctions such as pickled pigs feet, a chili dog smoothie, bull penis, or fried butter. Each of them took turns having to answer either an embarrassing question, which involved dishing on one of their many famous friends, or eating one of the unappetizing dishes.
After Corden asked Wintour to rank designers Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs from best to worst. Wintour did put Tom Fort at the top, but gave up on ranking the other two and had to eat a bite of bacon-wrapped pizza as retaliation.
When it was Wintour’s turn again, Corden slid the pickled pigs feet in front of her. Then, he asked: ‘You famously host the celebrated Met Gala that takes place in Manhattan each year. Celebrities from all walks of life are desperate to get a ticket. Anyone from Beyonce to George Clooney attends. So my question is: who would you never invite back to the Met Gala?’
Wintour waited for the excited crowd to quiet down until she replied assuredly: ‘Donald Trump.’
The answer prompted another round of cheers and claps from the audience and Corden himself.
While Wintour didn’t explicit say on the show why she would rather not see President Trump among the A-list event crowd, she has clearly opposed his politics.
Vogue endorsed Hillary Clinton, Trump’s opponent, during the presidential race last year.
