Jennifer Lopez And Billionaire Rihanna Among Early Picks For Met Gala List
The upcoming Met Gala is going to be predictably filled with so much drama that fashion may well be forced to take a backseat. If singer and fashion mogul Rihanna graces the upcoming Met Gala, it would be the “Work” singer’s first red carpet appearance as an official billionaire.
But that’s not all, Jennifer Lopez may likely steal the spotlight if she arrives at one of fashion’s biggest nights accompanied by the one-and-only Ben Affleck.
Jennifer Lopez Reportedly Entertains Plans To Attend September’s Met Gala
Jennifer Lopez, a Met Gala regular since she made her debut in 2004, is reportedly planning to attend the upcoming event. We can’t help but be curious as to whether Jennifer Lopez will be attending with Ben Affleck, especially after the two rekindled their romance.
They’ve been stealing tabloid headlines with their PDA-packed trips, dinner dates, steamy birthday pics and fun outings with their kids.
It would be the first red carpet appearance made by the pair as a reunited couple after 17 long years. Lopez first attended the glamorous Vogue gala in 2004, wearing a dress made by Dolce and Gabbana, and since then has rarely skipped the stunning fashion and dinner night. She attended from 2006-2008, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2017-2019.
The event, also unofficially called the “Fashion Oscars”, is usually held in May but was shifted to September as a result of the coronavirus and in the hopes that things might get better by the time. However, they are not dropping health guidelines, as, according to reports, this year’s event will feature a smaller number of people, making it more intimate.
A Spokesperson for the Met told The Daily Beast on Tuesday about the safety precautions that will be put in place for the event: “Currently, all attendees at The Met Gala on September 13 must provide proof of full vaccination and will also be expected to wear masks indoors except when eating or drinking. We will update these guidelines as needed.”
Among the stars who make the exclusive cut are Rihanna, who we know for rocking that brilliant yellow gown by Guo Pei, amongst many others, and actress Lupita Nyong’o, who has appeared on multiple vogue covers.
Also among the list of famous names said to attend the big occasion are Emily Ratajkowski (who announced her pregnancy with a Vogue digital cover) and “Havana” singer Camila Cabello.
Already, the invite-only event – with solo tickets costing $30,000 and tables going for $275,000 – has sold out.
