11 Celebrities Who Have Never Attended the Met Gala

If you’re an A-list celebrity (or, at this point, a relatively famous TikTok star), chances are you’re getting invited to the Met Gala. While the yearly event is infamous for its super coveted guest list, it’s not actually that hard to get an invite. Basically (unless you are banned … which is a thing), you just have to be super famous, culturally relevant, and part of the zeitgeist. But weirdly, some of THE most relevant people in the industry have still never been to the Met Gala, and some of them are kinda shocking? Ahem:

She could not be more A-list, but nope, she’s never been! In fact, Adele straight-up skipped the Met Gala in 2021 to get In-N-Out Burger, a decision we can all respect.

Paris Hilton

Despite her bestie Kim Kardashian being a regular attendee, Paris Hilton has never been to the Met Gala. But her sister, Nicky Hilton, attended back in 2001!

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith

Unclear why Will and Jada have never attended (they’ve presumably been invited!), But it seems doubtful they’ll show up this year given that Will is in India for spiritual purposes following his Oscars controversy.

Meryl Streep

Meryl is possibly the most famous actress ever? And yet she has never attended the Met Gala. However, she was reportedly going to be a co-chair at the Met Gala in 2020, but the event was canceled due to the pandemic and she did not step back into the role.

‘Kay, this is honestly shocking. No clue why JenAn has never been to the Met Gala, guess she’s simply too cool for such things!

Angelina Jolie

Splashy celeb events aren’t really Angie’s thing, so this one isn’t a shock. And before you ask …

Brad Pitt

Angelina and Jennifer’s mutual ex Brad Pitt has also never attended the Met Gala despite being all kinds of A-list.

The Met would be lucky to have her, but it’s simply not her vibe!

Britney Spears

Britney’s former conservatorship made it so she did not exactly have control over what events she attended, so fans are hoping she’ll RSVP yes soon.

Meghan Markle

Duchess Meghan has never been to the Met Gala despite being super famous and influential, but now that she and Prince Harry have settled into their new lives in America, it’s possssssible she could show up for the first time soon.

Guess we’ll have to wait and see!
