Is Met Gala 2021 Losing Its Glamour Because of Influencer Invites?



The rumor that lead organizer and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour has invited a ton of TikTok, YouTube and Instagram influencers to the exclusive annual event has some A-listers miffed.

“I’ve been told that a lot of influencers are on the guest list,” one celebrity agent, whose clients have been regulars at the affair in the past, told The Post. “I’ve heard that Facebook and Instagram have taken so many tables, and that’s put a lot of people off going, alongside the mask mandate.”

A publicist with A-list clients added: “Personally, I don’t think the Met is cool anymore … It’s gone from super prestigious to [being] full of influencers.”

Along with regulars JLo, Rihanna and Lupita Nyong'o, influencers Addison Rae and YouTuber Emma Chamberlain are rumored to be on the guest list. Sarah Jessica Parker, Ben Affleck, Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen will likely not attend due to work commitments. A number of previous attendees may not go due to Covid concerns.

A fashion agent brushed off criticism, noting this year’s focus is on supporting young talent, so guests will skew younger and anyone complaining wasn't invited and is bitter about it.

Representatives for Vogue declined to comment.
