Next to the Oscars, the MET Gala is the biggest red carpet of the year, with a who's who of Hollywood, fashion, music and other A-listers. But there were some noticeable absences from this year's event, some of which we can explain, and others we can't. Here are three major names we were missing:
We held our breath patiently until the end, awaiting Queen Bey's patented late arrival, with our fingers crossed for some outfit that would just blow us away. But then the credits rolled and the Lemonade star was nowhere to be seen! It appears she had other commitments in LA: her mum Tina Lawson's Wearable Art Gala at the California African American Museum.
2. Sarah Jessica Parker
Ok, this one is super weird because SJP is New York. We can find no information about her whereabouts, only that she shared a rather cryptic video to Instagram the day prior, with a line that read: "On this May day," which references the date on which the MET Gala falls: the first Monday in May.
3. Taylor Swift
Practically unavoidable last year, her girl squad, love life and street style were plastered on every news site and magazine. But Tay hasn't been spotted in public since February, and hasn't posted on Instagram since the start of March, prompting everyone to ask: Where in the world is Taylor Swift?
