Although Solange and bro in law Jay Z have no problem sitting next to each other dressed in all white-all smiles these days, last year this time (May 5, 2014 to be exact)-it was a different story: literally.
Around this time every year, Anna Wintour holds her annual Met Gala: A formal/themed superstar extravaganza and event that holds one of the most coveted tickets in town where each plate and seat bought, sold, invited, (or bribed) serves a benefit to a different charity every year.
Well if no one knew much about the Met Gala, last year-they did as, the talk of the event were the events that occurred on the elevator where a tape was turned over showing Solange wailing on her sister’s husband Jay Z-who held his composure quite well (all swings considered).
Although the three never directly addressed it, and Beyonce’s creative attempt to finesse the situation by adding a line to she and Nicki’s “Flawless Remix” : “sometimes sh|t goes down when there’s a billion dollars on the elevator” seemed to go over well, we still have yet to know how well it bid (farewell or go).
Whether they neglected to RSVP, uninvited themselves, or were not asked [to come this year] remains to be known, but reportedly, the guest list of attendees has been made public and Beyonce, Jay Z or Solange are not on the list (as yet).
This year will be hosted by Jennifer Lawrence and (so far-confirmed) are: Blake Lively, Kim Kardashian and Kanye, Kendall Jenner, Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne, Sarah Jessica Parker, Bradley Cooper, Sienna Middleton, Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon, Dakota Johnson (Fifty Shades of Grey), Jennifer Lopez, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen so far.
One of Wintour’s / Vogue’s favorite girls: pop princess Rihanna is on the list however.
This year’s (eastern) theme is named “China: Through the Looking Glass”-so look forward to a lot of your faves wearing their sexiest best Geisha.
The shin dig is scheduled for May 4 and the after party will be hosted by Yahoo in New York’s Meatpacking District.
