You'll be surprised by how many stars have yet to grace the Met Gala red carpet

NO WAY PETE DAVIDSON HAS GONE TO THE MET GALA, RIGHT?

The SNL funnyman often shies away from red carpets and rarely talks about fashion, so no way he'd be interested in the Met Gala, right?

Davidson actually made his Met Gala debut at the postponed September 2021 event, walking the carpet in a skirt and blazer combo by Thom Browne. The big question: In 2022, will he walk with girlfriend Kim Kardashian?

BUSY PHILIPPS IS A MET GALA REGULAR, NO?

... and she totally made us laugh on her way up those carpeted stairs, right? Right?!

NOPE

But she really, really wants an invite. "I don't understand why I'm not invited to the Met Ball," the Dawson's Creek alumna tweeted, revealing the snub while simultaneously shocking the internet with her admission. "I f—ing LOVE a fancy dress and a party and raising money for good things!"

ANGELINA JOLIE MUST HAVE GONE, RIGHT?

She's too flawless not to have graced the Met Gala red carpet at least once.

NO ... BUT WE'RE STILL HOPING

While we're still awaiting Jolie's debut on fashion's biggest night (never say never!), the humanitarian has been celebrated at the event in the past: Priyanka Chopra (unknowingly) paid tribute to the Oscar winner when she pulled an Angelina Jolie on the red carpet — five years after Jolie's leggy pose at the 2012 Academy Awards.

DID PRINCESS DIANA MAKE AN APPEARANCE?

Serious question: Were we really that lucky to witness the people's princess among Hollywood's most stylish stars?

YES, MA'AM!

.... turns out, we were that lucky! In 1996, Princess Diana attended the Met Gala, wearing a navy Dior slip dress for the unforgettable evening.

DID ADELE PERFORM WHEN SHE WENT?

We're imagining the Grammy winner made her way to the stage, where she effortlessly belted out a few of her hits, while fellow attendees cry-sang in the audience.

SHE'S ACTUALLY NEVER BEEN!

Adele

Considering Adele has shared her disdain for touring and living life in the spotlight, her absence from the high-profile event makes sense (even if it does make us sad).

HAS BARBARA WALTERS MADE IT TO THE MET GALA?

We don't even want to think about what the legendary journalist's neverending to-do list looks like on a weeknight, when the event takes place.

YES!

... but, let's be honest, is anyone too busy to play dress-up and get fawned over at the Met Gala? Walters, who's been to the event more than once, is proof there's time for everything.

NO — BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T GO

In a surprising twist, the Friends alumna has never been to the Met Gala, despite gracing the cover of Vogue countless times. (The event is hosted by longtime Vogue editor Anna Wintour.)

ARE THE WINKLEVOSS TWINS AMONG THE MET GALA'S MOST RANDOM GUESTS?

And if Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss' red carpet appearance isn't already enough for you to handle, the brothers — who once claimed Mark Zuckerberg stole their idea for Facebook — also caught up with Armie Hammer, who played them in The Social Network, at the 2017 Met Gala.

DID OLIVIA PALERMO GIVE US STYLE INSPO?

Fingers crossed she enlisted her Pinterest-worthy hubby as her date.

NOT AT THE MET GALA

The City alumna — as well as her costar Whitney Port, and pretty much everyone from The Hills — has yet to receive an invite to the Met Gala.

BRITNEY SPEARS TOTALLY WORE AN ABS-BARING OUTFIT, RIGHT?

NO, SADLY

The pop star has never been to the Met Gala. We'll just have to settle for her A+ fashion shows on Instagram, which honestly might be better than the real thing.

DID JADEN SMITH SKIP THE MET GALA?

Hey, he could have been holed up in a studio working on his dream of releasing two or three albums a day.

NO, HE WAS DEFINITELY THERE

... and he brought his dreadlocks with him. "I try to definitely go for interesting and sexy at the same time in my own way," Smith, who wore head-to-toe Louis Vuitton, told Vogue's André Leon Talley at the 2017 Met Gala.

WAS MEGYN KELLY THERE?

YES SHE WAS

The 2017 Met Gala, which she attended with husband Douglas Brunt, wasn't the Today host's first time at the annual event.

SO, HOW MANY TIMES HAS MERYL STREEP ACTUALLY BEEN?

You know that's the real question on all our minds.

NONE

We are personally offended the Oscar winner, who is the most nominated actress in the award show's history, has never walked the Met Gala's star-studded red carpet. Excuse us while we start an online petition.

DID TINA FEY GO?

She might have a lot on her plate, but we're still hoping the actress-comedian still found time to wow us at the Met Gala.

YOU BET

She didn't have the best experience when she went in 2010, however. The Met Gala, she told David Letterman, was "such a jerk parade ... if you had a million arms and all the people you would punch in the whole world, they were all there."

... BUT CARRIE UNDERWOOD LOVED HER EXPERIENCE, RIGHT?

NEGATIVE

The country crooner has previously skipped the event, and we're not exactly surprised. Underwood is a self-proclaimed introvert, as we learned following her 2018 ACM Awards performance.

"When I'm performing it's like, I'm in the song," she revealed of feeling weirded out and overwhelmed by clapping. "Then, as soon as the song's over, it's like I'm Carrie again and I just want to kind of get off the stage."

DID AMY SCHUMER PLAY DRESS-UP AT THE MET GALA?

Bonus points if she also credited her O.B. tampon on the Met Gala red carpet.

YEAH

But the night wasn't the I Feel Pretty star's idea of fun, she later told Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio in 2016. "It's people doing an impression of having a conversation … I don't like the farce," Schumer told Stern. "We're dressed up like a bunch of f—king a–holes."

WERE ALL EYES ON BEYONCÉ AT THE MET GALA?

To be honest, when isn't full attention given to Queen Bey when she's around?

OF COURSE

Queen Bey made her Met Gala debut in 2008, and has been slaying the event ever since (with husband JAY-Z by her side).

DID JESSICA SIMPSON DUST OFF HER DAISY DUKES FOR THE MET GALA?

NOPE

Theory: Maybe Drake's absence from the Met Gala had to do with his and Rihanna's complicated on-again, off-again relationship ... or maybe he really just wanted a milkshake that night.

DID A MAKEUP-FREE MARILYN MANSON GO?

But most importantly: Did he crack a smile for the cameras?

NOPE, HE DEFINITELY WENT FULL GLAM

As in, the rocker attended the event with a face full of makeup, enlisting then-wife Dita Von Teese to be his date in 2006.

WAS ADRIENNE BAILON HOUGHTON INVITED?

Aside from serving as a co-host on The Real, the star is also a Cheetah Girl (never forget!) and is Kardashian adjacent, having dated Rob and is still close friends with the famous sisters.

YES, AND SO DID THE REST OF 3LW

The early aughts blessed us with girl group 3LW, which consisted of Bailon Houghton, Naturi Naughton and Kiely Williams, who all wore matching outfits to the Met Gala.
