Celebrities Who Didn’t Attend The 2019 Met Gala (Photos)
Justin and Hailey Bieber fans were excited to see the couple walk the Met Gala red carpet as husband and wife, but that didn't end up being the case.
From Rihanna to Sarah Jessica Parker, these are the celebrities who skipped out on the 2019 Met Gala red carpet. Plus, take a look at all the stars who did hit this year’s camp-themed festivities.
1. Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds
Recently debuting her baby bump at the Pokémon Detective Pikachu premiere, many fans thought that Lively and Reynolds would make another adorable appearance at this year’s Met Gala. However, the couple skipped out on the camp festivities.
Can the Met Gala red carpet really exist without Rihanna? Apparently so. After the Evening Standard reported that she hadn’t confirmed her attendance for this year’s festivities, fans spoke out on Twitter with predictions she would skip out. Some also pointed out her recent Instagram stating that she was in the U.K. promoting Fenty Beauty. This seems to be why she missed out this year, but that didn’t stop her from sharing a photo of who she thought was the winner of the camp red carpet.
3. Taylor Swift
With a new song and BFF Karlie Kloss in attendance at this year’s Met Gala, people expected Taylor Swift to hit the red carpet. However, she never appeared. This is now the third Met Gala in a row she’s skipped.
4. Amal & George Clooney
After Amal Clooney co-hosted last year’s Met Gala, the Clooney’s seemed to have decided to sit this year out.
5. Ariana Grande
While Grande stunned at the 2018 Met Gala, early reports stated that she would be a no-show this year.
6. Justin Bieber
Justin and Hailey Bieber fans were excited to see the couple walk the Met Gala red carpet as husband and wife, but that didn’t end up being the case. Hailey walked solo in a skin-tight Alexander Wang look, while Justin was nowhere to be seen.
7. Sarah Jessica Parker & Andy Cohen
The BFFs have walked many Met Gala red carpets together in the past, but this year was an exception. The Watch What Happens Live host told Entertainment Tonight: “We are not going on Monday. She’s on a plane somewhere, and I have to work.”
8 . Chadwick Boseman
The actor took to Twitter and let fans know he wouldn’t be attending this year due to his shooting schedule. He also reminisced on last year’s event: “#MetGala2018 was an experience I’ll never forget. Had such a great night in @Versace.”
