The Met gala was far less luminous than past balls, thanks to the absence of Karl Largerfeld , who last year was a glittery beam of fabulousness in a silver sequined jacket. The Kaiser’s travel schedule is too busy for him to accommodate a trip over here to dine with his best gal pal Anna Wintour, reported Fashion Week Daily. And he’s not the only one who took a rain check (literally), Steven Meisel, Dolce and Gabbana, and Roberto Cavalli all stayed home. Roberto was photographed on his Super Yacht with his family none too worried about the Met Gala in NYC. But Page Six” reported that Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, and Christy Turlington also were not showing up and the alas the Trinity was no where to be found. Campbell said she’d boycott the Costume Institute gala at the Met the other night not because rival mannequin Kate Moss was co-chairing but because her dear friend, designer Azzedine Alaia, wasn’t invited. A rep of the diva said, “Naomi, having supported this gala event for many years, planned to attend this year and even purchased a table. However, as she does not wish to be disloyal to Alaia . . .” But a spy said, “Please. She only decided not to go after Karl Lagerfeld decided against going.” We also hear that Campbell had her own “Supermodel” party Sunday night at her Time Warner Center apartment and that Vogue’s Hamish Bowles showed up “begging her to come to the Met.” Campbell’s rep didn’t comment, and a Vogue rep didn’t return calls. Meanwhile, Linda Evangelista told us, “I’m not able to attend. I will be there in spirit.”
