A-list actress confirms she is NOT attending the 2023 Met Gala despite ruling the red carpet for the past 15 years

A-list actress confirms she is NOT attending the 2023 Met Gala despite ruling the red carpet for the past 15 years

A-LIST celebrities have used the Met Gala’s spotlight for years, but this time one celebrity has decided to decline their invitation.

It’s not clear why the star won’t be walking the carpet at the event, but the announcement raises a lot of questions.

Despite being one of the most anticipated attendees, Blake Lively, 35, will not be attending the 2023 Met Gala.

The actress shared the news at the grand re-opening of the Tiffany & Co. Fifth Avenue in New York City on Thursday.

After a reporter asked if they would be seeing her at the gala, she responded, “You will not, but I will be watching.”

Blake’s look from the 2022 Met Gala was then complimented, and she replied, “Thank you, that’s very sweet. I’ll be wearing that on my couch on Monday.”

Her gown last year included a fantastic reveal that transformed her tight rose gold dress into a gorgeous light blue gown.

It’s unclear if Blake’s husband Ryan Reynolds, 46, will be joining her on their couch or attending the event stag.


News of Blake’s absence spread fast online, and her fans on Reddit expressed how much they’ll miss her at the event, but they seem to understand why she won’t attend.

A fan wrote, “This makes sense, she just had baby #4 and I think she always comes up with her own looks, I can’t imagine having the time to design something Met Gala-worthy with a new baby. Mama needs a break this year.”

Another commented, “That’s surprising, I know she had kind of a friendship with Lagerfeld and would’ve thought she’d be going to an event in his honor. I will be missing her lewk!”

“I am begrudgingly happy that she is taking a break but I am also devastated that we’re not going to get a look from her. Mostly happy for her though,” added a third.

A more humorous fan wrote, “Ryan Reynolds breathes a sigh of relief and returns to Scrooge McDucking it in his money pit in full Deadpool regalia.”


Many fans believe that Blake isn’t attending the event because she has a brand new baby at home.

Back in February on Superbowl Sunday, she posted a photo that showed The Town actress standing between her smiling husband and his mother Tammy with a flat stomach.

Fans were quick to notice Blake’s missing baby bump and rushed to the post’s comment section to speculate.

Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld wrote: “Epic post! For all the reasons!!!”

One fan commented: “The baby is here.

A third person speculated: “They’ll probs keep it private for now like they did w/ their past daughters.”

Questions and theories continued in the comments as one commenter asked: “Did I miss something? Where is the baby bump?”

A second, very excited, follower wrote: “At first, I thought this was a throwback pic (baby bump no more?!)”

“This must be her birth announcement,” concluded a third fan.

While a fourth commenter stated: “Epic post! I knew the baby had arrived. Great job keeping your life private (as you can). Bravo.”
