The 2021 Met Gala, the annual fashion event that celebrates the Costume Institute’s new exhibition, is just around the corner. However, some of the event’s most recognizable guests will not be in attendance this year.

Blake Lively, a regular at the Met Gala for years, has announced that she will not be attending this year. In an interview with PEOPLE, the 35-year-old actress said that while she won’t be at the event, she will be watching.

Timothée Chalamet and Pete Davidson are also out of this year’s event. Chalamet, who has attended the Met Gala in the past, has not commented on why he won’t be attending this year. Davidson, on the other hand, has made it clear that he won’t be attending due to the pandemic.

The 2021 Met Gala will be a much different event than usual due to the ongoing pandemic. The event will be held outdoors, and the guest list has been reduced significantly. Additionally, masks and social distancing will be required for all attendees.

Despite the changes, the event is still expected to be a star-studded affair. Celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Lopez, and Kim Kardashian are all expected to attend.

It’s unfortunate that Blake Lively, Timothée Chalamet, and Pete Davidson won’t be at the 2021 Met Gala, but it’s understandable given the current circumstances. While they won’t be in attendance, fans can still look forward to seeing their favorite celebrities at the event.
