2019 MET GALA: Lindsay Lohan Slams Zendaya’s Cinderella Outfit
Zendaya may have looked like a real-life Disney princess at the 2019 Met Gala, but Lindsay Lohan was definitely not impressed.
The “Mean Girls” actress, 32, recently left a couple of shady comments under an Instagram photo of the 22-year-old star’s Cinderella-inspired Tommy Hilfiger ballgown, shared by a Disney fan.
“Claire Danes did that with @zacposen already,” Lohan wrote, referring to the “Homeland” star’s light-up Met Gala look from 2016.
In a second comment, she pushed the comparison even further: “@clairedanes you wore this dress so beautifully, I don’t know why someone thinks that they can be more chic. Ever.”
It wasn’t long before Zendaya’s fans jumped to her defense. “Seriously? Remind me, was #theparenttrap and #freakyfriday movies you did the original? Or did you remake something someone already did????” one fan asked. “@zendaya and @clairedanes both looked great!”
“@lindsaylohan show us the dress you wore to the #metgala go ahead, I’ll wait,” another comment read, adding, “Go sit down somewhere.”
While Zendaya and Danes’ looks might appear similar at first glance, there are a number of key differences between the two. The “Romeo + Juliet” actress’ Zac Posen dress for 2016’s “Manus x Machina”-themed affair was crafted from organza woven with fiber-optic strands that allowed it to glow in the dark, and wasn’t overtly Disney-inspired.
The “Spider-Man: Homecoming” star’s Tommy Hilfiger gown, on the other hand, incorporated LED strips and was clearly modeled after Cinderella’s iconic look, complete with “glass slippers,” a bejeweled pumpkin-carriage bag and even a fairy godmother (courtesy of Zendaya’s stylist Law Roach, who dressed in a coordinating cloak and illuminated his client’s look with a wave of his wand).
Lohan has not attended the exclusive event since 2007.
