Blake Lively will not attend this year’s Met Gala

Black Lively who has long been a staple on the Met Gala red carpet, confirmed Thursday to reporters that she would not be attending this year’s event

The show will have to go on without the simple favour actress. On Thursday during the grand re-opening of the Tiffany & Co. Fifth Avenue in New York City, the It Ends with the actress said she would not be attending the 2023 Met Gala.

You will not,” Lively, 35, told reporters  when asked on the red carpet whether fans would see her at the annual biggest night in fashion. “But I will be watching.”

After being complimented the star on her 2022 ensemble, she said, “Thank you, that’s very sweet. I’ll be wearing that on my couch on Monday.”

For Thursday’s event, Lively wore a leather-like brown belted midi dress with a plunging neckline, accessorizing in strappy coordinating heels. She paired the look with several pieces of chunky gold jewelry, with her hair worn loose in voluminous curls.

Lively has been a regular face  at the Met Gala since 2008,  often alongside her husband since 2012, Ryan Reynolds. In fact, 2014’s event marked their first-ever red-carpet appearance as a couple.

Over the years, the Simple Favor actress has donned looks from a variety of high-end designer labels, including Versace, Chanel, Gucci, Burberry and more.

Last year, Lively looked absolutely regal as she posed alongside Reynolds, 46, where they both served as co-chairs alongside Oscar winner Regina King and Broadway superstar Lin-Manuel Miranda.

While Reynolds rocked a velvet tux, Lively wore a crown, opera gloves and drop earrings paired with an extravagant Atelier Versace gown. She later wowed with a quick costume change as her bow transformed into a long blue train.

Officially titled “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” the 2023 Met Gala theme honors the famed German fashion designer who died in February 2019 at the age of 85.
