Former Bazaar cover star and all-round beauty Coco Rocha has long been a favourite on the Met Gala red carpet. Known for style prowess and ability to simultaneously dress on-theme and on-point has made her one to watch over the years, however it seems we won't get to see her take on avant-garde as the model has reportedly not been invited to this year's soiree.
After explaining to The Post that it is an honour to attend the gala, they then asked why she would not be attending this year to which the model replied, "I don't know. You'll have to ask Anna that."
Landing a spot on the guest list is notoriously difficult with some of Tinseltown's biggest names being snubbed across the years. There are endless rumours as to why, but the ultimate say comes from the gala's chair, Anna Wintour. A source told Page Six that whilst last year's event boasted 610 guests, this year's list had been tightened "to make it more intimate and private. The party has shifted in size over the years according the theme."
Coco's non-invite is rumoured to have to do with a comment she made about the dress she wore to the 2013 Met Gala that Katy Perry wore four months later to the MTV Video Music Awards. The model jokingly told Mashable, "I wore her dress at the Met, so I'm going to be phoning someone up and wondering what happened there." Perry is one of the event's co-chairs for this year.
Whilst Coco won't be attending, we do know that supermodel Candice Swanepoel is making her red carpet return after the birth of her son, with the South African beauty posting an image on her Instagram earlier today confirming the news:
The Hollywood Reporter also reports that Brie Larson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, Zoe Kravitz and Chrissy Teigen are amongst the stars invited to this year's ceremony. The countdown to #MetMonday is well and truly on.
