If it feels like you’re having a bit of fashion-induced whiplash, you’d be right. Less than a year after the 2021 Met Gala, we returned for another night of glitz, glamour, and major sartorial statements. The 2022 Met Gala happened last night, and the stars aligned in New York City for what is arguably one of the fashion world’s biggest nights. Even though several of our favorite celebs showed off their fierce frocks and dapper duds, not every star in the Hollywood firmament was in attendance. Yes, we hate to break it to you, but not everyone made it to the 2022 Met Gala red carpet.
We’ve been disappointed in the past, but some of these misses really left our fashion-loving hearts aching. Take for instance: Zendaya. The Emmy winner is a beloved Met Gala attendee who always turns out some of the best looks the red carpet has seen the past few years. But much like the 2021 Met Gala, Zendaya did not attend the 2022 festivities. “But why?!” we hear you screaming into the void. Don’t worry, the actress offered a reason for her absence.
“I don’t want to disappoint my fans here, but I will be working,” the star told Extra in a recent interview. “Your girl’s gotta work and make some movies; so I wish everyone the best.” Ok, well, work seems like a fair reason to miss out on the Met Gala. While Zendaya is working on her next film, we really missed out on seeing the young star work her latest Met Gala look. Curious to see who else skipped the 2022 Met Gala? Take a look at our slideshow!
