Vogue’s Met Gala cover is out… and guess who didn’t make the cut?


Vogue US has just released the front cover for its special edition Met Gala issue, and there's one glaring absence from the list of celebrities who made the cut.

Singer Rihanna was crowned Anna Wintour's style winner on the night, and graces the cover in her stunning canary yellow floor-sweeping gown, a creation by Chinese designer Guo Pei.

Riri shared the exciting news with her 18.6m Instagram followers today, posting an image of the vibrant cover and writing, "WOW!!! I am very honored to have this image selected for the new cover of @voguemagazine !! #metgala2015 #art #fashion #Vogue"

The competition was stiff at this year's Gala, with Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Kendall Jenner and more all looking downright fabulous, and receiving their rightful recognition in the list of celebrity names featured on the special Vogue cover. 

However despite Kim Kardashian's stunning Roberto Cavalli ensemble, her name didn't make the cover – something which many are taking as a direct snub from Anna Wintour to Kim and Kanye.

The star couple's names were featured on last year's Met Gala cover, and they even graced the front of Vogue themselves back in April 2014.

Since then though, Kim and Kanye's appeal seems to have worn off for Anna, and it seems once you're out of the editor's good books you won't get back in.

After all, who can forget her face earlier this year when little North West had a temper tantrum in the middle of Kanye's Adidas show at New York Fashion Week?

We can't decide who looks more upset, Anna or North…

Kim didn't exactly make things easy for herself on the night of the Met Gala by outright ignoring Anna's "selfie ban" and posting a number of pictures from inside the event, which many say may have led to the decision to cut her name from the cover.


I just love this girl @ladygaga

As for Rihanna, she definitely seems to be the star of the moment at Condé Nast, as this is her second year running as cover star for the Vogue Met Gala issue:

It's definitely well deserved for RiRi, but we doubt Kim's too happy all the same.
