Why Dua Lipa Didn’t Attend 2022 Met Gala – Celebrities Who Skipped – Seventeen Magazine

Dua Lipa, everyone’s favorite catsuit-wearing, Y2K-loving pop star, skipped the 2022 Met Gala last night. 😢

The artist chose not to attend the Met Gala this year, along with other celebs like Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde, Zendaya, Taylor Swift, Timothée Chalamet (crying @ this one) and Rihanna, who didn’t show for various reasons. Zendaya apologized to her fans, explaining that she had filming conflicts, while Taylor Swift hasn’t attended a Met Gala since 2016, and Rihanna is, well, very pregnant. She was, however, honored with a marble statue of herself (belly and all) on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art!

Dua Lipa isn’t pregnant or filming a movie, but she has been touring around the world non-stop for the highly-anticipated “Future Nostalgia” tour that had been rescheduled several times due to COVID-19. The singer has been tearing it up on- and off-stage in corset dresses, exposed thongs, glitter cowboy outfits, and even Ariana Grande’s signature ponytail, and is currently in London wrapping up the UK leg of the tour.

Sadly, that meant that the “Sweetest Pie” singer wasn’t able to fly back to NYC in time to attend the 2022 Met Gala. Dua Lipa took to Instagram to post video clips of herself strutting on stage in a glittering Mugler couture catsuit with over 120,000 crystals. Spoiler alert: it looks incredible when she’s performing under the stage lights. The singer captioned the photo dump, “this was my met gala @ the 02” in reference to the London O2 arena she performed at last night. Even off the Met steps the look fit in perfectly with this year’s Gilded Glamour theme.

We were sad to miss you on the Met Gala red carpet, Dua, but you were serving gilded, glittering glamour all the way across the pond. There’s always next year!
