We’re eagerly awaiting tonight’s parade of gowns at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala, but there’s one Met Gala mainstay who won’t be joining this year: supermodel Gisele Bündchen. The Brazilian beauty, who always hits the carpet with her football star husband Tom Brady, is in Seoul, South Korea for a Chanel Cruise Seoul event, according to her Facebook. “Watching from the side lines…. A different perspective,” she writes in the caption.

While we wonder how Chanel could have possibly convinced the soon-to-be-retired model to skip Fashion Prom, at least we can look back on her past gowns with a loving sigh, like the red Alexander McQueen showstopper she wore in 2011, or last year’s custom Balenciaga. Oh, and who could forget her glam take on 2013’s punk theme? Though we’re sad to miss her, it’s great to see her trademark beachy waves are still killing halfway around the world.
So without a major Bündchen moment, we’re left to consider the important questions: Who will show off the most leg tonight? Whose hair is going to get the Gisele Award of Excellence? And will Tom Brady show up on the red carpet alone? Stay tuned.
Will you miss her on the red carpet this year?
