Despite circulating rumors and a viral ‘TikTok ban’ video claiming that influencers were banned from the Met Gala 2024 guest liat, multiple sources have confirmed. The rumor, sparked by TikToker Danny Rayes, suggested that A-list celebrities had complained about influencers at the event, leading to an alleged ban, except YouTuber Emma Chamberlin. Rayes’ video, which has amassed over 6 million views, did not provide credible sources for these claims.

Contrary to these assertions, influencers were indeed present at the Met Gala 2024. Notably, TikTok influencer Reece Feldman was seen on the red carpet and conducting interviews, and French influencer Léna Mahfouf was also spotted at the event. Model and TikToker Wisdom Kaye appeared, proving that influencers were not excluded from this prestigious fashion event.

The misunderstanding may stem from the absence of some previous attendees, such as TikTok Addison Rae and beauty influencer James Charles. However, this year’s event also welcomed several influencers new to the Met Gala scene.

Moreover, TikTok’s significant presence as the lead sponsor of the Metropolitan Museum of Art Exhibit “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion” further dispels the rumor that Met Gala 2024 influencers were not invited. The sponsorship highlights the platform’s ongoing involvement and influence within the fashion industry.

The Met Gala, a cornerstone event celebrating fashion, continues to attract a diverse group of celebrities, including newcomers like Pamela Anderson, Shakira, and Jeff Goldblum, as well as returning attendees such as Meg Ryan, who last attended in 2001.

In light of these facts, it is clear that influencers remain a vibrant part of the Met Gala, contributing to the event’s expansive appeal and coverage. This year’s gala not only showcased a range of stunning outfits but also demonstrated the broadening celebrity landscape that now includes digital influencers alongside traditional Hollywood stars.
