Emma Stone Reused One Of Her Wedding Dresses For The Met Gala, Which Was Just One Of Many Off-Theme Looks Of The Evening
Stars, they’re just like…well, not us. But sometimes they do the kinds of things that feel at least the tiniest bit relatable to us regulars in the general population. Like for example, Emma Stone, who was invited to this year’s Met Gala. And she could have made like Blake Lively and spent months planning an elaborate custom-made gown that fully represents the feel of this year’s theme of Gilded Glamour. Instead, Emma threw open her closet doors, looked around for about 3-5 minutes, and eventually thought, “Eh, this will do” while pulling a dress out and tossing it on her bed. And that dress just so happened to be one of Emma’s old wedding dresses, which was made by Louis Vuitton, so – consider that fantasy about realism and relatability officially over.
Emma got secretly married to her SNL writer boyfriend Dave McCary sometime in Septmeber 2020, although we don’t really have exact dates, because Emma is a private-ish person like that. It’s also why no one has seen any pictures of what Emma might have worn when she got married to the father of her 1-year-old baby girl Louise. But now we have an idea of at least one of the outfits Emma wore on her big day, thanks to her choice to recycle it for the Met Gala. The Louis Vuitton feathered flapper-style white dress was what Emma wore to the after-party of her wedding ceremony, and VOGUE notes that the dress has never been seen in public before.

The theme of this year’s event was Gilded Glamour, which was supposed to be a tribute to 1870-90s American fashion. And that dress isn’t exactly what one might picture when they think of the late 1800s. Maybe Emma’s invite was sabotaged, and some petty intern with an axe to grind crossed out “Gilded Glamour” and wrote, “IDK like, David’s Bridal if David finally got around to reading The Great Gatsby or something.”
But Emma was far from the only one who seemed to be confused about the theme. Not since 2013’s Punk theme have some attendees looked like they accidentally wandered into a completely different event. Like Hailey Bieber, who worked her signature style vibe (boring), and seemed to get the same memo Emma Stone got. Because Hailey also showed up in a silky white dress with feathers. Excerpt Hailey’s Saint Laurent look also came with what appeared to be the kind of robe one wears when they’re applying makeup, or plotting their rich 87-year-old husband’s death.

Speaking of more fabric that was neither gilded, nor glamorous, was Camila Cabello, also in white, and vaguely bridal. Camila wore a two-piece outfit by Prabal Gurung, and this is definitely the kind of look you get when someone misreads the reference dates on the invitation. 1870 or 7180? Well, if you accidentally read the second, then you too might come to the Met Gala in a futuristic bridal gown fit for the most beautiful captain of a Star Trek ship, while also paying homage to the invasive alien floral species that now rules your home planet.

Chloe Grace Moretz also repped Louis Vuitton, like Emma Stone, and like Emma Stone, she also did white. But not bridal! Yes, there should be points deducted for wearing silver (aka gold’s natural enemy). But at least Chloe appears to be somewhat on theme. At any minute, it looks like she’s going to burst into the parlor and interrupt Christine Baranski’s character on The Gilded Age, breathlessly explaining that the new money folk invented a vulgar new flavor of ice cream.

Of course, it’s not a current-day Met Gala unless the RSVP list includes Instagram influencers and TikTok stars, which is why Addison Rae was there. Again, not exactly doing much in the way of Gilded Glamour. Addison pulled on a silver Michael Kors dress that was covered with mirrors. And once again, I have to wonder if someone, somewhere got the reference dates mixed up. I know Addison is a graduate of TikTok university with a degree from The Kardashian Kollege of Business, so I can understand if Addison thought the Gilded Age was the 1970s. Because that dress looks like a disco ball at Studio 54 or one of the cracked mirrors that the Studio 54 staff used to do blow off of.
