Why Blake Lively Skipped the Met Gala 2024?

Blake Lively didn’t show up at the Met Gala in 2024, and people were curious about why. Well, last year, she didn’t go either because she had just had her fourth baby. She posted a picture of herself at home with the baby, but she still hasn’t said what they named the baby, even a year later. Maybe this year, she will stay home again because the baby is still little!

But there could be other reasons too. Like, maybe she’s busy working on a new movie. Or she might be getting ready for a big press tour for a movie she’s in. Fans were really hoping she’d be at the Gala this year because she was out in New York City last week for another event, but she didn’t go.

The last time Blake went to the Met Gala was in 2022. She wore a dress that looked like the Statue of Liberty, which is in New York City. She said she wanted to show off New York City’s architecture with her dress. Her favorite Met Gala look ever was in 2018 when she wore another amazing dress. She said she helped design it herself, and she joked that maybe she’s so picky because she’s a Virgo.

So, we don’t know for sure why Blake didn’t go to the Met Gala this year, but maybe she just wanted to stay home with her baby or she’s busy with other things. We miss seeing her there, though, and hopefully, she’ll be back next year.
