Italian Model Eugenio Casnighi ‘Fired’ For Outshining Kylie Jenner At Met Gala: ‘Made All About Him’

Eugenio Casnighi, an Italian model, allegedly got fired from the Met Gala 2024 for stealing Kylie Jenner’s spotlight.

The biggest night of the year for fashion, the first Monday in May, is quickly approaching. The Met Gala offers a once-in-a-lifetime chance for the most well-known people to interact with each other at the ultra-exclusive event and on the red carpet. There are always some unexpected moments at the Met Gala. Last year, a model went viral after she was seen standing behind Kylie Jenner. It turns out that he was a model who served as a greeter. His name is Eugenio Casnighi. Sadly, though, he says he was let go because he stole Kylie Jenner’s spotlight by going viral!

‘Fired for being Too Hot’

The model Eugenio Casnighi, who gained notoriety last year, is back in the news. Prior to the big night, he is divulging the dark secrets of the Met Gala. The 26-year-old claimed in multiple TikTok videos that his stunning and ostentatious appearance led to his being “disinvited” from the gala event. At the 2023 Met Gala, Eugenio Casnighi’s rugged persona truly stole the show—it even outshined the well-known beauty mogul Kylie Jenner, who was present. The model, who had been a Met Gala greeter in the past, said that this was the reason he was abruptly fired.

‘Cut him off’

In 2022 and 2023, Eugenio Casnighi has been “working for the Met Gala as a model and greeter,” according to a TikTok video he posted. He was expected to work this year as well, but without warning, the organisers chose to “cut him off” from the event. According to Casnighi, his look at the 2023 Met Gala was the focal point, with the organisers saying, “You (Eugenio Casnighi) made it about yourself. We can’t have you there anymore.” In the video, he discussed how the event managers wanted him to escort Kylie Jenner to the 2023 Gala, which is a famous stint to help models get noticed by industry professionals.

‘On the Nice list of Kylie Jenner’

In a new TikTok video, Eugenio Casnighi disclosed screenshots of emails and texts he received from the Met Gala authorities. They forbid Casnighi from sharing any content about the starry fundraiser ceremony. The model, on the other hand, refutes the possibility that Kylie Jenner complained about him. He said she placed her on the “nice list” alongside Kim Kardashian, Emma Stone, Blake Lively, and Gigi Hadid.

Eugenio Casnighi also stated that a photo of him sharing the same frame with Kylie Jenner spread like wildfire on the internet. The model explained that because he was walking alongside Jenner, he appeared in the background of some of the photos. The spotlight was stolen from Jenner, which eventually led to Casnighi’s ban from the Met Gala.
