The Met Gala 2020 is officially cancelled—so stars post what they would have worn instead
The Met Gala, undoubtedly the biggest fashion event in the world, has officially been cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event is traditionally held on the first Monday of May every year, and is attended by the most influential people in art, film, music, and fashion. It is also a fundraising benefit done by Metropolitan Museum of Art for the benefit of their Costume Institute in New York City with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour as chairwoman. 

This year’s theme was going to be "About Time: Fashion and Duration" and we're disappointed because we all know it would have just been spectacular. But we're glad some Hollywood celebs posted the looks they would they have worn instead! 

Academy award-winning actress Julia Roberts posted this photo looking like a real "pretty woman" in a dreamy black & white gown. "Here's me... not going to the Met Ball tonight.”

Katy Perry, who announced her pregnancy just last March in her “Never Worn White” music video, shared that she was supposed to wear a Jean Paul Gaultier cone bra à la Madonna with a large belly plate.

“Mamma Mia!” actress Amanda Seyfried shared a photo of her in a floral blue number and captioned it, “What I would’ve tried to wear to the Met Gala this year.”

Writer/actress Mindy Kaling did her own improvised version of Jared Leto’s Met Gala 2019 look!

American figure skater Adam Rippon also posted his own budget-friendly take on Rihanna’s iconic yellow cape during the 2015 Met Gala.
