The Met Gala Is Missing Three Of Its Most Iconic Celebrities This Year And The Absence Of Their Outfits Is A Tragedy

We'll never know.

This year’s Met Gala has had plenty of hot looks walking the pink carpet, but three familiar faces are noticeably absent.

Rihanna, the unofficial queen of the gala, did not attend for the first time in a LONG time. There is no doubt that she would have won the evening with her take on the ‘Camp’ theme, but now we will never know what her outfit could have been.

She is greatly missed from the lineup, as no one does Met Gala like BadGalRiRi.

The one and only Beyoncé was also missing from this year’s Met Gala, which puts a big hole in the celebrity guest list.

Oh what could have been.

There was also no Blake Lively at this year’s event, which is a shame as she’s earned a reputation for rocking her looks over the past few years.

Her gown and crown for 2018’s ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & the Catholic Imagination’ themed Met Gala was particularly memorable.

We would have loved to see what all of these woman would have worn for this year’s Met Gala theme, as it drew in some beautiful and bizarre interpretations. But the biggest tragedy is definitely the absence of Rihanna, who is still queen of the Gala, even without attending.

Let’s Name And Shame The Dudes Who Wore Plain Suits To The Camp-Themed Met Gala

Do better!!!

This year’s Met Gala theme is ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’, which is an instruction to wear an outfit of extreme extravagance and go absolutely over the top. The Met Gala any year is an opportunity to put your all into your outfit, but this year it is literally the theme.

So why on earth men think they can show up to this even in subtle variations on a black suit is beyond comprehension. They should be turned away at the door.

People are serving LOOKS that have taken TIME and EFFORT.

See: Billy Porter

Lady Gaga

Darren Criss

Cardi B

Kylie and Kendall Jenner

Serena Williams

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner

The list goes on. There are women and men turning it UP for the pink carpet, and then there are the dudes who have worn what can only be described as boring-ass black suits. Some made unimpressive attempts to nod to ‘camp’, some just really did not.

Kanye literally looks like he’s wearing a tracksuit.

Shawn Mendes, plain as heck.

Liam Hemsworth legit just had this tux in the cupboard and I won’t believe otherwise. Miley isn’t super impressive either but at least she tried.

Rami Malek just catapulted his career by playing queer, camp icon Freddie Mercury, and yet.

Same goes for Taron Egerton, who is playing Elton John in Rocket Man.

Frank Ocean wyd???

Michael B Jordan, we expected more.

Alexander Skarsgård this is nothing!?

Trevor Noah, now is not the time for your statement.

Patrick Schwarzenegger ladies and gentlemen. Do NOT invite him back. Ever.

The Met Gala is not an event where you can opt out of the theme! Plenty of men got into theme, so there’s no writing it off as a ‘chick thing’. Don’t bore us! Do better.
