Washington D.C [U.S.A], May 8 (ANI): Met Gala 2019, the biggest fashion night which was witnessed by the who's who of the Hollywood's A-listers, was given a miss by some of the prominent stars.

The fundraising fashionable event with the theme 'Camp: Notes on Fashion' had some celebrities who did not step out onto the red pink carpet this year, sparking a flurry of questions over what exactly came between them and the big ball.

According to E-News, Andy Cohen previously told the website that he nor his beloved Sarah Jessica Parker was going to be in attendance this year as he had to work and Sarah may be travelling because of work.

Such seemed to also be the case for Ariana Grande, who had a heavenly debut last year but was noticeably missing from the 2019 soiree. The Grammy winner is currently on her Sweetener World Tour and had a show on Monday night in Los Angeles.

According to USA Today and as reported by E-News, work also got in the way for Bradley Cooper, who was reportedly working as a producer on Joker.

Taylor Swift, who last showed up to the gala in 2016, was reportedly spotted in England by a fan over the weekend, quieting speculation that she would attend the big event.

As for Selena Gomez, the singer was also not posing on the carpet on Monday night after attending last year's show. While there isn't a specific reason for her absence, she was spotted at Disneyland on Sunday in California.

Excited fans were expecting Rihanna to make a jaw-dropping appearance at the event, but the songstress never showed up. Though a reason is not known, she responded to a fan who speculated she was home playing with makeup.

Taraji P Henson was confirmed to attend but had to miss the gala at the last minute due to John Singleton's funeral. "Y'all I was supposed to be Vera Wang date tonight for the met gala but as some of you may know I had to bury my dear sweet friend John Singleton today in LA. I had to back out of the Met because My head would NOT have been in the game," she explained on Instagram.

"@verawang is such a classy Lady she sent flowers and totally understood my position. I LOVE YOU FOREVER @verawang NEXT YEAR WILL BE THE CHARM FOR US!!! GOOD LUCK TONIGHT!!!" she added. (ANI)
