Met Gala 2024: Rihanna cancels at the last moment, a star unable to climb the steps and forced to be carried A shower of stars descended on the legendary red carpet of the Met Gala 2024. However, this year, one of the emblematic figures of the fashion event was absent: Rihanna. And for good reason, the artist had to cancel his visit for a very particular reason. For this new edition of the Met Gala, the French stars made a strong impression.

Aya Nakamura shone on the red carpet with her slit Balmain dress, Isabelle Huppert played the resplendent bride, while Léna Mafhouf surprised everyone with her sublime Schiaparelli bustier adorned with XXL flowers.

But the one the photographers were all waiting for was Rihanna. And for good reason, each of his appearances at the Met Gala, the Man Down interpreter causes a sensation alongside rapper Asap Rocky. But this year, Rihanna and her partner did not make the trip.

According to information from magazine, the 36-year-old artist is currently suffering from the flu which is preventing her from honoring this appointment which is so important to her. An absence which created general surprise, especially since the couple had been seen this weekend in a Puma pop-up store in Miami. Rihanna, pillar of the Met Gala A few days ago, Rihanna declared that she would wear a “very simple” outfit, according to our colleagues at Extra magazine.

Unfortunately, we will never know what the artist planned to wear. But one thing is certain, with Rihanna, simplicity is rarely there. Remember, in 2015, the world-famous artist opted for a colorful and spectacular look: an orange coat from Guo Pei, with an incredible train.

Just like last year, when she was pregnant with her second child, Rihanna took the steps in a breathtaking white dress by Valentino, with a gigantic cape covered in camellia flowers. Even more incredible looks Over time, the Met Gala has become THE fashion event of the year.

And who says fashion show, says sophisticated looks. This year again, the stars hit the red carpet in breathtaking outfits, enough to steal the show from Rihanna. For this new edition, the theme of the evening was entitled “Garden of Time”. For her first Met Gala, singer Tyla made a strong impression by opting for a Balmain dress, created especially for the occasion by Olivier Rousteing, also present at the event.

The strapless dress with a mermaid train was sculpted from a cast of her body, and is made entirely of sand and microcrystal studs. The dress being extremely fragile, Tyla had to be carried on the steps of the Met Gala so as not to damage it. A spectacular arrival which was immortalized by photographers, as shown in this video.
