It’s a wrap at the 2024 Met Gala — but the annual fashion extravaganza feels somewhat incomplete without some of its biggest names gracing the Met steps this year.

That’s certainly the case for fan-favorite “Queen of the Met Gala” Blake Lively, a no-show Monday night’s fashion fundraiser at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The “Gossip Girl” alum’s absence marks her and husband Ryan Reynolds’ second in a row, which left fans extremely disappointed.

Instead of stepping out for the “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion”-themed ball, the couple decided to stay home with their four children for a night of quality family time, according to Elle.


“BlakeLively not being at the Met Gala basically just fizzles the event. Honestly, they shouldn’t have it unless @blakelively is in attendance. It’s her show, everyone else is just a guest,” one fan wrote on X.

Another wrote, “pretending to not care Blake Lively isn’t there to save the night #MetGala,” while a third added, “the met gala can’t be over yet cause where’s blake lively.”

Page Six has reached out to reps for Lively and Reynolds for comment.

Lively, who co-chaired the event in 2022 alongside the “Deadpool” actor, 47, has been out and about in NYC this month, prompting speculation that she was set to attend Monday’s red carpet.

The “A Simple Favor” actress, 36, attended a star-studded party at Tiffany & Co.’s NYC flagship store last week — which she ultimately let be her big May fashion moment.
