In addition, the New York Post has confirmed that Choupette, the beloved cat of the late designer Karl Lagerfeld, will be in attendance. According to Choupette’s agent, the cat is a central part of Lagerfeld’s legacy and deserves to be present at the event. 

Who won’t be attending? 

Jonathan Majors, known for his role in “Creed III,” will not be in attendance at this year’s Met Gala due to his arrest for domestic violence in March. Deadline reported that Majors had originally planned to attend with Valentino, but they “mutually agreed” to cancel his appearance due to the allegations. 

Despite Majors’ lawyer denying any wrongdoing, he will not be in attendance. While some celebrities attend the event as guests of specific brands, others must purchase their tickets. Interestingly, the ticket price has hiked, ranging from $30,000 to $50,000 per person. Page Six reports some museum donors may opt-out as a result.

What happened at the Met Gala in 2022?

Kennedy in 1962. 

Elon Musk wore a white tuxedo, and First Lady Jill Biden was a special speaker. Compared to previous years, the event seemed to be a quieter affair, with notable figures like Rihanna, Beyoncé, and Jennifer Lopez not in attendance, but then, first-timers, including actress Glenn Close and Chloe Fineman from “Saturday Night Live,” took their place instead.
