Anna Wintour Gets a Big ‘No’ from Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce for Next Month’s Met Ball


Anna Wintour is busy organizing the spring Halloween show she calls the Met Ball.

But guess who’s not coming to the prom? The Homecoming King and Queen themselves. Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce.

According to reports, Swift has declined her invitation based on her concert schedule next month. She’s preparing for several shows in Europe through the month of May, and then she’s back in July. Swift has no time for Wintour’s foolishness.

Of course, Kelce will be by her side until it’s time to return to Kansas City Chiefs training camp. So he’s not hitting the Met Ball, either.

Wintour is counting on Jennifer Lopez to attract a crowd, even though JLo’s current project, the album “This is Me…Now” has been a cruel failure. I’m sure Anna’s hoping Ben Affleck will show up and not look bored out of his mind.

Wintour’s other big celebrity will be Zendaya, whose “Challengers” movie will be arriving just that Met Ball weekend. If it’s a hit, Anna will be relieved. She’s no doubt counting on Zendaya’s bf Tom Holland to make an appearance in a Spider Man suit.

Definite guests will be the Kardashians. Considering Taylor has a diss song on her album aimed at Kim, it’s probably best the two don’t cross paths.

Last year’s Met Ball — even with sponsors — cost the Metropolitan Museum $5 million. Conde Nast is no longer a sponsor for Wintour or Vogue. They’re too involved in layoffs to justify that outrageous expense.
