The 35-year-old actress has turned up at the red carpet event at the glitzy event - which is set up by Vogue editor Anna Wintour and features the biggest A-List celebrities arriving in high-end fashion pieces - multiple times over the course of her career but confirmed that she will be watching from her sofa when this year's gathering takes place on Monday, May 1.

Blake - who made her first appearance at the Met Gala in 2008 - shot to fame in her early 20s when she was cast in the hit drama series "Gossip Girl" and revealed that last year's outfit was a nod to the show that kickstarted her career.
At the time, she told Vogue, "Grand Central felt like a sort of really neat full-circle moment because [in] the first shot of 'Gossip Girl', I'm on a train and I pull into the station, and it's a shot of Grand Central station.
