For the second year in a row, Jenna Ortega opted not to attend the Met Gala. The actress is currently shooting season 2 of her Netflix series Wednesday, which has just kicked off in Ireland. According to the streamer, Ortega was on set with the cast, which explains her absence from this year’s Garden of Time gala.

Just last year, Ortega stepped out in a dark-colored gown from designer Thom Browne, which was inspired by the Victorian era. The look was perfect for the theme of the gala, which pays tribute to the late, great fashion designer, Karl Lagerfield. Lagerfeld died in 2019, and he was a fan of tailored black and white looks

Ortega wore a black and white dress with a gold chain and button details. She paired it with a cropped jacket and a ribbon necktie. The dress had a long train that cascaded down the stairs. She accessorized with black sheer knee-high heels, heeled patent boots, diamond drop earrings, and a Marli diamond ring.

“I’ve always been a fan of goth culture,” Ortega said in an April 2023 Vogue interview. “I’ve always had a dark side, but I never thought I could bring it out in myself. I’m glad I can now.”

Ortega’s Met Gala debut was in 2022, when she opted for a hot pink mini dress from Valentino. She paired the dress with Barbie-style pink tights and platform heels.
