Plenty of celebrities ignored the Met Ball's rumored social media ban, snapping selfies from inside the gala. Now will they face any repercussions? VH1 suggests that Anna Wintour is not happy about the Instagram leaks.

"Anna is very aware of all the celebrities who ignored her request," a Vogue insider reportedly told VH1's The Gossip Table. "She does not know what she’s going to do yet but she’s deciding." Another source claimed if the celebs don't take down their photos, they might not be invited back. The poorly-lit selfies are still up on Instagram accounts for Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, and Justin Bieber, so it's up in the air as to whether they've really been reprimanded by Anna and Vogue.
