Model Claims He Was ‘Fired: It was reported that Italian model Eugenio Casnighi was removed from the guest list for the 2024 Met Gala. Casnighi recently expressed his disappointment on TikTok. Claiming to have been “fired” from the event for drawing too much attention in past years, Casnighi made his case in a series of films.

According to Casnighi, he was confirmed to attend this year’s Met Gala before he was let go last week. He had previously served as a greeter and model at the event in 2022 and 2023. His story goes like this: the organizers kicked him out of the gala because he was too self-centered and became a viral sensation at the last event.


Pictures of the 26-year-old on the red carpet with Kylie Jenner at the 2023 Met Gala sparked a lot of interest online because of their appearance together. Another video featuring Casnighi went viral. It showed him sitting in the background while Jennie Kim of Blackpink was interviewed.

The email conversations between organizers and Casnighi, in which he was told not to publish any event footage or images, were shared despite his disappointment. He skipped the main Met Gala but shared video from the after-party, where he became friends with stars including Jaden Smith and Camila Mendes.

The charges made by Casnighi have ignited a conversation regarding the interplay between celebrity and attention at prestigious events like as the Met Gala, drawing attention to the potential fallout of attracting an excessive amount of personal scrutiny in such environments.
