Here's Why Beyoncé Skipped the Met Gala This Year

It’s Met Gala Monday, which means that literally everyone who is anyone is gathered in New York City tonight for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala. (You know, the one run by Anna Wintour.) The thing about the Met Gala is that it’s not tied to an awards show or anything, but it’s usually the most fun and interesting red carpet of the year. And you know who’s great at wearing jaw-dropping red carpet looks? Beyoncé.

Unfortunately for us, we didn’t get to see Queen Bey walk the Met Gala’s red carpet this year. Instead of attending the star-studded event, Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z were vacationing in Miami and in private islands near Florida’s coast, according to the Daily Mail. We honestly should be used to not seeing her at fashion’s biggest night at this point since she hasn’t graced the event with her presence since 2016 (!!), but we still hold out for hope!

Because we’re all feeling extra nostalgic these days, let’s take a walk down memory lane to see some of Beyoncé’s past looks, shall we? Because there have been some GOOD ones. I mean, she really had a hot streak going there for a while.
