Kim Kardashian is set to attend the Costume Institute Gala for the first time with Kanye West.

The 32-year-old reality TV star - who was allegedly banned for attending last year's prestigious event in New York by Vogue magazine editor Anna Wintour - will reportedly be by her rapper boyfriend's side at the star-studded ball on May 6, after settling her divorce battle with Kris Humphries ahead of a trial, which was originally due to take place in Los Angeles on the same day.

A source told Life & Style magazine: ''Kanye West and Kim Kardashian will both be attending the Met Gala in NYC on May 6. Because Kanye is performing he was allowed to invite her.''

The 35-year-old rapper attended last year's Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art alone, sparking rumours that Kim was not invited.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star was reportedly banned from attending the event, which attracts dozens of celebrities every year, because Anna believed she ''didn't fit the bill''.

A source previously said: ''Anna hates Kim. Why would she be invited to the event? It is all the biggest stars in the world and Kim doesn't fit that bill at all. The Met Gala is $25,000 a ticket, but Kim couldn't even buy her way in.''

Meanwhile, Kim is rumoured to be preparing to give birth to her first child in June rather than July, as she previously stated.

A source told ''She wants privacy when she gives birth. She's due at the beginning of June, in the first five days.''
