Tiger Woods missed out! Lindsey Vonn got all dressed up to attend the Delete Blood Cancer Gala at Cipriani in NYC on Wednesday, May 1 -- but she had to walk the red carpet without Woods.

"He's practicing," the 28-year-old professional skier told E! News of her boyfriend's absence. (Vonn and golf pro Woods, 37, confirmed their relationship on Facebook in March.)

Though she didn't have a date, Vonn still went all out with a glam ensemble for the occasion. "Hair by Mario Mele and makeup by Mac Cosmetics artist Fatima T for the gala tonight. More info to come!" the blonde gold medalist tweeted with a gorgeous headshot.

On the carpet, Vonn showed off her stunning blue Derek Lam dress and even posed with the designer himself. "Love this dress," she captioned beneath a photo.

In addition to her boyfriend, Vonn was missing another accessory on the carpet -- her knee brace. The Olympic athlete was injured at the Alpine World Championships in Austria in February, and underwent surgery five days after the accident.

"I'm still in rehab, things are going really well . . . I should start skiing in September and everything's right on track for the Olympics in February," she told E! News. "I just dumped the brace. This is my first trip without the brace, so I'm really excited."
