Kylie Jenner Skips 2021 Met Gala Amid Second Pregnancy:
Kylie Jenner was “so sad” she couldn’t make it to the 2021 Met Gala.
The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” alum — who is expecting her second baby with Travis Scott — took to her Instagram Story Monday to confirm that she won’t be attending the anticipated return of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Benefit.
The 24-year-old makeup mogul instead shared a series of throwback photos of her previous Met Gala red carpet looks — Balmain in 2017, Versace in 2017, Alexander Wang in 2018 and Versace, again, in 2019.
“I’m so sad I couldn’t make it this year. I can’t wait to see all the looks,” Jenner wrote.
Fans and followers of Jenner expressed their disappointment over her absence.
“She’s one of the few that always serves, and she’s not even going,” one fan commented.
“This is about to be the worst Met Gala… Is nobody going?” another wrote with a crying emoji.
Other social media users were also disappointed when Rihanna, Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Bella Hadid, Blake Lively, Lady Gaga and Zendaya did not show up on the red carpet. However, Rihanna was only fashionably late and later appeared with boyfriend A$AP Rocky.
Kris Jenner Gushes Over Kylie’s ‘Great’ Pregnancy At Met Gala: It’s Grandchild ‘No.11’
Kylie Jenner might not have made it to the 2021 Met Gala this evening, but her mom Kris did — and gushed about her second pregnancy. The Kardashian-Jenner matriarch, 65, arrived at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday, Sept. 13 in a classic all-black pantsuit with a subtle train, blending pieces from Tom Ford, Alexander McQueen, Judith Leiber, and Tommy Hilfiger.
When asked about becoming a grandmother once again, Kris told E! News on the red carpet that she was “really excited,” adding, “Number 11. It’s really great” as she made her way into the gala with boyfriend Corey Gamble. Following the news of her pregnancy with on-again, off-again partner Travis Scott, the makeup mogul, 24, revealed that she wouldn’t be attending the gala on Instagram Story early on Monday.
The confirmation came after she traveled to New York for fashion week last week. According to E!, the former reality TV star decided to opt out last minute to focus on her health. “She pulled out last minute because she is overwhelmed and just doesn’t feel great,” a source told the outlet. “She did a lot this past weekend and pushed it.”
“Kylie has been going back and forth for the last two months on if she wanted to attend or not and decided she doesn’t really need to go,” the source continued, adding that Kylie is “focused on her pregnancy right now and just wants to take it easy.” While there had been speculation that she would debut her baby bump at the Met Gala this year, Kylie opted for a good ol’ Instagram reveal instead.
Kylie confirmed the news of baby no. 2 with an Instagram video shared on September 7. It chronicled her pregnancy journey thus far, including receiving the positive pregnancy test and getting ultrasound exams alongside firstborn daughter Stormi Webster, 3. The two, who last split in 2019, have not publicly confirmed if they are back together.
