2015 Met Ball: 12 Celebrities who ditched this year
The guest list for tonight's 2015 Met Gala has been released — and some interesting names do not appear on it.
The leaked list, which may or may not be accurate, was posted online and is missing some names of people we would have loved to see at the event, the theme of which this year is China: Through the Looking Glass.
(That's not Lady Gaga's Twitter account by the way, just a fan appropriating the name.)
So, who's missing?
1. Taylor Swift
Though Swift stunned last year in a pastel pink Oscar de la Renta gown, the singer is opting out of the event this year and is instead preparing to perform in Tokyo for her 1989 tour.
2. Kristen Stewart
What would have been an awkward confrontation with Robert Pattinson and his rumored fiancée, FKA Twigs, will be avoided because the Twilight actress won't be there. Instead, she is in South Korea at the annual Chanel resort show.
3. Nina Dobrev
The actress, who recently quit The Vampire Diaries, wishes she was heading to the party of the year, but she said her plans are decidedly less glamorous.
4. Lupita Nyong'o
Nyong'o had a big day today, but not because she was busy getting beautiful for the 2015 Met Gala. Instead, she was introducing her Star Wars character to the world.
While we'd love to see if the "We Are Who We Are" singer would go wild like her on-stage persona or classy like at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, she just came off a tour a couple of days ago and is more likely resting up, physically and mentally.
6. Jessica Simpson
Simpson attended the Met Ball in 2007 and received accolades for a plunging silver gown and dark hair, but we doubt we'll see the star — who has been laying kinda low since her supposedly drunk red carpet appearance last month — at the event, despite making a fortune in the fashion industry.
7. Gisele Bündchen
The just-retired supermodel is skipping the gala, too, but she's definitely not missing any star sightings. She was spotted sitting front row with Kristen Stewart at the Chanel show in South Korea.
8. Jamie Dornan
Dakota Johnson (aka Anastasia Steele to Dornan's Christian Grey) was working the Met Gala carpet, but Dornan was nowhere to be seen. The Fifty Shades hottie, who just celebrated his 33rd birthday on May 1, has been keeping a low social media and public profile for the last few weeks.
9. Victoria Beckham
The fashionista and former Spice Girl was noticeably absent on the carpet this year. But she and her family were busy being fabulous in Morocco, so she had a good excuse for skipping out on the fashion event of the year.
10. Emma Stone
The actress has been keeping a low profile since rumors swirled that she and boyfriend, Andrew Garfield, reunited after taking a break from their relationship last month. Though the starlet had one of our favorite looks at last year's event, it appears she's taking a break from the fashion event this year.
11. Blake Lively and 12. Ryan Reynolds
With her movie, The Age of Adaline, getting a lot of attention, it would have made sense to see Lively on the carpet with her hubby. The two did make a stunning pair on the 2014 carpet, after all. But the new mama chose a more casual fashion statement today instead.
