It’s hard to believe that some of Hollywood’s biggest stars have never been a part of fashion’s biggest night.
As any fashionista knows, the first Monday in May has become synonymous with the Met Gala — the annual Costume Institute benefit that boasts one of the year’s star-studded guest lists.
This year’s theme, Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty, will honor the legacy of the late Chanel designer during the May Day soiree co-hosted by Michael Coel, Penelope Cruz, Roger Federer, Dua Lipa and Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour.
And while rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Gigi Hadid, Cardi B and Blake Lively have become staples on the Met Gala red carpet, showcasing stunning haute couture looks by top designers each year, some celebrities have avoided the annual fashion fanfare entirely.
Despite being one of Hollywood’s most celebrated actresses, Meryl Streep has never performed at the Met Gala. Other movie icons like Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie And Leonardo DiCaprio also skipped the bash. Meanwhile, Kinda Friends alum Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox And Lisa Kudrow I didn’t go up the Met stairs.
