Meryl Streep was nearly a co-chair in 2020, but the pandemic canceled the event.
A three-time Academy Award winner and nine-time Golden Globe winner, Meryl Streep is accustomed to red carpets. However, although the acting legend has starred in several fashion-forward roles in movies like “The Devil Wears Prada” and “Mamma Mia!” she’s never attended the Met Gala.
Streep was actually set to be a co-chair for the 2020 Met Gala; however, the COVID-19 pandemic prevented the event from taking place that year. She was not re-added as a co-chair when the Met was held again in 2021.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s children have attended before they have.
The often controversial couple have always been carefully watched by the public, making headlines and starting heated debates. However, they undoubtedly also have some pretty great red-carpet couple looks.
One carpet they never walked down is the Met Gala’s. Their children, Jaden Smith and Willow Smith, have attended, though.
It’s unknown if they’ll make an appearance at the Met in 2022, but with the shakeup at the Oscars and the repercussions, it’s unlikely.
The entire cast of “Friends” have never made Met Gala red-carpet appearances.
Somehow, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, and Matthew Perry have never attended the event. While the Met’s attendees include fashion’s elite, the guest list also includes the biggest names of the moment, so it’s shocking that none of the powerhouse “Friends” cast made appearances when the show was on the air or afterwards, when their careers – especially Aniston‘s – and personal lives have made headlines.
Their 2021 documentary, “Friends: The Reunion,” brought the cast back onto our screens, reminding everyone how we still love them … and would like to see them at the Met.
Many rappers have attended the Met, but Drake is not one of them.
No, Drake was never Rihanna’s date to the Met Gala. While rappers like A$AP Rocky, Lil Nas X, Chance the Rapper, and Migos have all made appearances, the Canadian star has not.
Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian oddly haven’t appeared alongside their sisters at the event — Khloé has confirmed it’s not because they’re banned.
The two reality-TV stars have perhaps the tamest style out of their sisters, but even their mother, Kris Jenner, has attended multiple times.
Anna Wintour reportedly refused to invite the Kardashians to the event for years, but Kim attended with Kanye West in 2013, and the family members have since become mainstays of the Met. In 2021, fans speculated whether Khloé was banned, but after a fan asked her on Twitter whether this was true, she responded, “Absolutely NOT true,” as per People.
A-list celebrity Angelina Jolie has never been in attendance, either.
With the perfect mix of edgy and elegant style, it’s shocking that the actress never attended the event in her prime: the 2000s.
The costuming and cinematic masterpiece of the “Maleficent” films also seemed like perfect opportunities for Jolie to make her Met Gala debut, but we’re still waiting for that day to come.
The “9 to 5” cast of acting legends and fashion icons have never been at the big night.
Each of these women is a legend with a very active career. They also each know how to make a statement with their outfits: Parton with sparkles and fringe, Fonda with sleek silhouettes, and Tomlin with graphic-T-shirt-and-blazer combos.
We’re hoping Adele’s music comeback means she’ll be making her Met Gala debut soon.
The music icon’s 2021 comeback also cemented her a spot as a fashion icon. Whether performing in outstanding gowns sans heels or sitting courtside in striking coats, she turns heads.
Although the “Easy On Me” singer hasn’t attended the event yet, there’s hope for her debut since she stepped back into the limelight.
Despite her stardom, Britney Spears hasn’t been to the Met.
When the Princess of Pop was at her height of fame in the 2000s, you may have suspected she walked the Met Gala’s red carpet, but she didn’t. It would’ve been fitting to see Spears reinterpret her eccentric tour costumes and award-show style for any of the Met’s unique themes.
But with a non-stop workload, it’s understandable. Now free from the constraints of a conservatorship, there may be a possibility to see Spears attend more public events.
The Met Gala has been attended by royals, but not by Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Many royals have actually graced the fashion spectacle, but the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, are not part of that group. Middleton’s style is sensational, so we’d love to see what she would come up with for this event.
Their in-laws Prince Harry and Meghan Markle haven’t either.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have become one of the most-talked-about couples. From their unique outlook on royal life to their candidness and adorable PDA moments, everyone loves to know everything about them. It’s shocking that not even one of their best couple looks have been at the Met Gala.
Since the couple have forgone their royal duties and now live in the US, we’re hoping to see them at the event one day.
While one of Helena Bonham Carter’s movie characters has been to the Met, the actress hasn’t, which Rihanna teased her about.
If there’s any celebrity who could have a Met Gala theme based on them, it’s probably Helena Bonham Carter. The actress is always dressed in outrageous vintage-punk-Vivienne Westwood-and-Tim Burton-esque looks.
While her character in “Ocean’s 8” attends the Met in a fabulous gown, the actress hasn’t been in real life.
In a 2018 interview on “The Graham Norton Show” in the UK, Bonham Carter pointed out that she’s never been invited. Her costar Rihanna jokingly explained, “That’s because you wear dresses like that,” pointing to Bonham Carter’s funky printed look.
Superstar Christina Aguilera has shockingly never walked this red carpet.
While the Met Gala is the perfect platform to show off the cool and quirky style of entertainers, Christina Aguilera has never had the chance to be part of that. The “Genie in a Bottle” singer has been busy creating music, touring, acting, and creating an image for herself for most of her life.
While her fan base would no doubt be excited to see her flaunt her style at the Met, they’ll have to keep waiting.
Like both of his famous exes, Aniston and Jolie, Brad Pitt has also never attended the event.
Brad Pitt is a red-carpet staple, always in a dapper suit and always with a new hairdo. It seems surprising that he’s never been to the Met, especially when his costars and friends like George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Jonah Hill have.
Country darling Carrie Underwood is yet to make it on the Met Gala red carpet.
With eight Grammys, 16 CMA awards, 25 CMT awards, and many more, Underwood has proven she’s a singing sensation. But from her days winning “American Idol” to present day – constantly giving stunning performances and red-carpet glamor – she hasn’t made it to the Met yet.
Sam Smith hasn’t been able to show off their fun and funky suits at the Met, either.
Sam Smith has given the world countless heartbreak anthems and club dance tracks, always performing them in beautifully flamboyant looks. But the fashionable singer has never worn any of their dashing suits to the Met Gala.
And some Marvel superheroes shockingly haven’t earned a spot on the guest list, either.
While many Marvel Universe superheroes have graced the Met Gala red carpet sans armor, some key actors have not. For veteran actors like Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), and Jason Momoa (Aquaman), it’s surprising.
Momoa could have easily been seen there with his former partner Lisa Bonet. Superhero actors Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) and Don Cheadle (War Machine) have also never attended.
It may be understandable how Tom Holland (Spider-Man), a newbie, hasn’t been there. With his girlfriend, Zendaya, set not to attend the Met Gala in 2022, it’s doubtful Holland will make his debut this year.
Fashion rebel Doja Cat hasn’t attended the Met Gala despite her growing fame in recent years.
Doja Cat may seem relatively new to the scene, but after releasing a viral song and video in 2018, she’s exploded into a superstar sensation. Her music style and fashion style is iconically her own, and very few can pull it off.
She’s proven herself as a major player in the industry, especially at the 2022 Grammys with a big win and two daring looks.
We’d love to see Machine Gun Kelly walk the red carpet alongside fiancée Megan Fox.
If you didn’t know Machine Gun Kelly before, you definitely know him now because of his very public relationship with Megan Fox. The performer has eccentric style and isn’t afraid to show it off — he just hasn’t done so at the Met Gala.
When Fox attended in 2021 in a red Betty Boop-like ensemble, the rapper met up with her afterwards for a Met Gala after-party. From their couple looks so far, we’re excited to see if they’ll attend together this year.
